    To anyone that plays BFMEII o'm sure that the 30 FPS lock that EA Games put gave you hard time, it was annoying well NO MORE!!! i found a way to get rid of that, follow the insturctions:
    1)Download patch 1.03 or 1.04( www.gamespot.com or www.eagames.com) and apply the patch.
    2)Download the B4ME2 INI 1.03\4 Files http://mevault.ign.com/fms/Download.php?id=5030 extract them to whenever you want.
    3)in those files that u extraced search for gamedata.ini double click on it to open, once you opened it press CTRL+F to search words within the file, then write FPS and press ENTER. you will find two lines in the document that says "USEFPSLIMIT=YES" and "FPSLIMIT=30" DELETE THOSE LINES!!!! after doing that make sure there is no empty lines between the different texts into the file, SAVE ALL YOUR CHANGES INTO THE FILE AND EXIT.
    4) go to your BFMEII Directory and cut the INI.BIG file and put it in place that has nothing to do with the game, for exmpale d:\stuff.
    5)After removing the INI.BIG file, cut the INI Folder that you extracted in step 2 and put it in your BFMEII\DATA Directory for exmpale c:\programm files\ Electronic Arts\ Lord Of The Rings The Battle For Middle Earth 2\DATA\INI.
    the INI means your INI Folder DON'T PLACE INI FOLDER INTO INI FOLDER THAT HAS NO SENCE, JUST ONE INI FOLDER WITHIN ALL THE INI FILES.
    6)Launch the game and have Fun :)

    I can asure that yes, it works!!!!! i always had 30 FPS at different machines after applying this my FPS increased to 60-75 with max setting SS AA 4X,16XAF and the game is way too fast!! well you always can add the two lines "UseFPSLIMIT=YES" "FPSLIMIT=X" (x=below 60)
    i found it out by myself cause i used to edit CNC Generals rules., and by the way BFMEII is a great RTS game and there is no performance bug unlike it generals, finally can say EA done great job here.

    Only problem is every thing seems like it's super speed.. Tried this and everyone moves fast and go somewhere extremely fast, and do things extremely fast... Is there any fix for this?

    Just like Generals.

    10 for effort, but it's not worth a damn in practice, sorry.

    might be a couple of years late xd but if ur still here I might as well explain why it's so fast! This game was created with an fps cap because it was built in a time where it couldn't get more FPS... so if you have higher fps than the game wants you to have it will lead to the everything in the game running faster and this can mess up the game... If you want the best experience in this game you should just keep it at 30fps! For example the game SKYRIM... its locked at 60fps and if you unlock the fps cap it will lead to everything literally FLYING EVERYWHERE :)
