    what is the dxdiag file they are asking for??

    1. click on "START"

    2. click "run"

    3. type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"

    4. check through the tabs and perform all tests

    5. click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice

    It's that txt-file you need to send.

    What's more the game will be more server-intensive due to simulating tens of thousands of objects.

    People who don't know how to run the standard utilities should think twice about participating in a Beta test of anything. It is not for the faint of heart.

    I don't feel like fighting it out with a Beta since I am on Linux and this game is likely to drive wine's Beta into an unmentionable place. Lately, it has been build-of-the-day as it is.

    It probably does. I don't think EA would want someone with a broken or weird Direct X to test it. Also the run app in on every windows I think, it doesn't matter what internet browser you use. The start button is the little windows icon on the bottom left (assuming you didn't change it's spot)

    Error sending the file. Tested on Firefox, Chrome and IE.

    Not possible to manually the path of file. Browse always give a wrong path "C:\Fakepath\Dxdiag.txt".

    Same here. Even tried creating C:\Fakepath and putting dxdiag.txt in it and it still didn't work
