Yesterday’s Battlelog trailer was a petri dish of possibilities, and so naturally it set tongues a-wagging.
Forums buzzed with questions like: "Will I be able to switch servers while pulling a sick wheelie on Kiasar Railroad?” And: “Can I change my loadout while getting changed?” Also: “Coo! If tablets can host the in-game minimap, can my second monitor do the same?”
Yes, yes, and “yup”.
“Just open it in a new browser window and place it wherever you want,” they added in a different thread. “However big you want it.”
Another user asked if players would be able to recreate the Commander Mode monitor setup DICE sported at E3 - in which other players’ views from the ground were visible to their commander via a second screen.
“No, it's your screen only,” replied the developer. “Though I'm sure some crafty people will figure out a way.”
Because Battlelog is web-based, the minimap will be compatible with “most modern browsers” - even officially-unsupported Opera, thanks to a sole DICE developer who put in the hours to solve the root issues.
In summary: there’s nothing standing between you and an omniscient SupCom-style setup. Are you the all-seeing type?
