    Many things.

    Have to say I really dont know how they are going to fix all the bugs in 3 weeks.
    Some shouldn't have left alpha stage. Some of the ones i've come accross:

    • When looking at other players, the models are leaning backwards, forwards or sideways at funny angles.
    • Players are often half way through the floor or wall.
    • If there are players on another level above you can see when guns are dropped or health/ammo packs etc.
    • If a player lags they appear out of nowhere like ghosts. Whats annoying is you are worse off because of their lag, they will be shooting stright in front of you but by the time their model has floated through the wall or train, as often is the case, its too late.
    • Some texture elements of the map cause black polygons to appear on screen. At first I thought I'd activated a wall hack but I then got closer to the texture it disagreed with and it was smashed glass on the floor with twisted polygons.
    • Floating when you kneel against a solid object (tree, wall) or kneel on stairs. Your model cant keep still and starts moving, very irritating when taking out a sniper that hadn't seen you.

    Of course this is beta so overall I'm very impressed with how the game is shaping up. And the fact my GF285 doesnt need to be upgraded I'm very happy that I dont need to spend money. In an about turn, thank god for consoles, saving PC gamers money every year.

    The Origin thing is awful however, eventually when you're in the game you can completely forget it exists, although you have to coz you'll go mad if you dont.

    That was tested with a nVidia GF28 + GeForce 285.38 Driver (Beta)

    Not tested with my AMD rig coz its XP. BF3 doesnt support XP as is the growing trend in gaming.

    Most of the bugs were fixed just after the beta was released there is a strange process and apparently they have fixed nearly all bugs, even if they haven't people will complain and they will sort it out with patches just so they don't lose any sales.
