Yeah I know. I just could not remember if I had BIG or a space or a _ before 417 :doh: age!!

Everything will be reset and will take longer to rank up as well.

I had the same issue Kreg.

I'm guessing he called himself "-Blunt" so the clantag would fit.

We had the same issue on BF2142 and just lived with it.

I'm "Liberator."

(note the full stop, cos someone else grabbed the prime name)

So what is going to be the clan tag we should use?

-[dMw]-
=[dMw]=
-=[dMw]= (user puts - in front of their name)

I didn't add a clan tag, I just made my name -=[dMw]=-Blunt and left the clantag blank:D

LionHart.

Have we decided on a tag yet?

Our documented convention (http://www.deadmen.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=25803) for games where 'official' badges have yet to be awarded is for members with badges for other sections to use .dMw AFTER their player name.

This will not work in BFBC2 I believe as the clan tag entered is placed BEFORE the player name.

We want the pubbies to see how we at dMw play our games and we therefore need to be visible to them. So here's the compromise ...

If you have already been awarded a badge for one of our supported games then use dMw. as the tag within BFBC2.

We tried to use the normal -=[dMw]=- tag but it shortens to -=[dMw]= last night.

An option we did find was that we could use =[dMw]= or we could use dMw| from cod.

I personally prefer =[dMw]= as its as near to our usual tag as possible. However, having several variations of our clantag wouldn't be a good idea so shall we stick with dMw| or go with =[dMw]=?

TeaLeaf
6th March 2010, 10:01 AM
I think it's best to run with our documented name so that everyone follows the same procedure.

dMw.<name> for existing badge members.

Please read my post again.

Anyone with a current gaming section badge must use dMw. as their tag in BFBC2.

Anyone without a current gaming section badge must not wear any form of dMw tag.

As you all know - we do not hand out badges and hence tags like confetti. They have to be earned and awarded appropriately. If/when the game is formally adopted then we will discuss adopting a formal tag structure.

GhostMjr - please make sure that this is enforced by you and your admin team.

If so then please change it to the new agreed tag structure before they level up too much making it a right PITA to change.

It's really important that we have a uniform tag across our player network.

edit: added tag information to Server Details sticky.

What happens when you send out a friend request? Where does it go and how is the recipient meant to get notification?

I keep sending them and unless no bugger likes me and they're ignoring it they're disappearing into the ether.

My "friends" list has actually stayed for a week or so now. What I've found is that it works best when both of you are in the main menu and it appears automatically.

As for the Server Favourites, it's a bit crap that they don't have that sorted yet tbh.

i cant add servers by the full server list, but ive found a little work around.

join the server you want to add to your favorits, then leave again, then go to the server history tab and add it from there, always works for me.

:D Having a few issues setting up multiplayer though. I can add friends and people can send me requests, but the requests aren't showing up for either person. Any ideas?

I also keep getting a white screen/semi crash type thing, comes back after a while but is probably my computer more than anything.

Blunt
8th June 2010, 04:09 PM
Friends is borked.:sideways:
I have problems with alt/tabbing. it takes ages to get back in (white screen)
also, at the start of most rounds my screen is black. Players tags and bomb sites are visible though. I get my picture back by alt/tabbing out then clicking on the game in toolbar, it usually works after a few attemps, but sometimes I have to restart the game.
And that is on top of the PB kicks for heartbeats stopped:sideways:
I am also having to wait ages after my 10 secs to respawn.


Welcome to BC2:rolleyes:

Tutonic

Blunt the bug-magnet :P

I get the occasional flickering black-screen problem, but it's rare and usually goes away after a few seconds.

Seems like DICE still have plenty that needs to be fixed, though...

Friends is borked.:sideways:


I gave up on the in-game friends. It was broke at release and when I sent an invite the other person wouldn't see it so had to send an invite back and then it was fine, I managed to get a few added and then it lost them all. I gave up on it.

As far as the white screen thing goes, Graphics drivers might fix it. If it's all up to date, check any unusual hardware. Some games I played were giving me the strangest bugs that nobody knew was causing them. I unplugged my Waccom drawing pad and it worked. So check even seemingly unrelated things like webcams etc.

Perhaps I'm the lucky one then. My freinds has been solid since the last release. I haven't lost them since the early days. (luckily?)

There is still an issue with adding new friends as far as I can tell. I think it works best when you're both online.

My friends haven't disappeared, they just don't show up as online when they they actually are;
Invites don't work for me as well, either way.
