Why do you keep comparing this to Dark Souls. It's not thy kind of game.

+1 on the Shakespearean tongue. Very immersive!

Improves Nvidia Hairworks performance

By how much, I wonder. Nvidia's own performance guide makes Hairworks seems like an awful feature with about a 20% performance drop.

There's a setting change in a config file that lowers AA on the hairworks for a supposed big performance improvement. The patch might make it official.

edit: Witcher 3 folder >bin >config >base and then open the rendering.ini file and change HairWorksAALevel=8 to 4 or 2 or 0. Lower #'s should perform better.

News Comments > CDPR on Witcher 3 Graphics Downgrades

Apology accepted CDPR. It would have sat better with me if you had made this statement a couple weeks ago and been upfront about the visual changes from early screenshots and footage. It still looks very nice, especially the lighting.

The game seems reasonably well optimized but doesn't perform 'great' IMO. It is SLI capable now. It is very low on CPU and VRAM usage (awesome!). There are still some gripes I have, but it's a great game nonetheless.

Well DX12 is supposed to support GPU physics and more so hopefully games will standardize back to DX in the future.

Reference:

In part, thatís because DirectX 12 enables the GPU to take over more of the traditional computing load, including physics and collisions.

I'm having second thoughts on W3. Here's another. It's not just about graphics, but what else have they butchered? It's screaming 'consolitis' right now and it's not even born yet.

War takes a terrible toll, not just in lives lost but in psyches shattered. Depression in the armed forces is widespread, and suicide rates among members of the military are higher than they've ever been. In addition to more traditional treatments, soldiers have been looking to video games to help them cope with the horrors of war. And it's working.

Well stop fucking starting wars than. I have no sympathy for anyone who wants to go to war to begin with. If it's such a horror show do you really think engaging in more virtual carnage is the answer? You'd think some actual peace and some actual quiet is what's needed.

I know what you mean.. Remember most of these soldiers join because they're used to being dependent on their parents and usually can't afford to live on their own or are afraid to be out on their own. So they join and adopt a new parent - the federal government.

This parent doesn't love them of course. These kids are naive and they've been taught in (and by) school to admire the government. The government has all the answers of course! They can do and solve anything! It's a tale of mental conditioning as well as psychological manipulation and domination.

There are studies that show gaming can help relieve stress. People with PTSD engage in escapism for a reason. Games do that.

Now your freedoms are not inalienable rights. They now allow, by their grace, you to have freedoms by passing a disingenuous 'Freedom' bill. We are slaves in so many ways.

Well... might be time to finally grab this.

My thought as well. Soon! I admire and appreciate their dedication to the game. Well that's what it looks like from my armchair here.

Anyone playing Toxikk? My plan is to wait until it's finished, but I'm wondering how it's coming along.

It's rough and unfinished. Check out recent gameplay vids on YT but be cautious. UT4 is far more promising.

Good article. The feds do want their kill switch powers. They'll use it against the populace in various duplicitous ways. Any sort of unrest could be dealt with rubber bullets, inet blackouts and civil lockdown. Your rights to protest and publicly gather are diminishing every year.

edit: Any unrest can and likely will be treated with the utmost hostility by the authorities. Killswitch powers are another tool in their arsenal.

It looked like a computer animation to me. This is not crossing the uncanny valley. I found the most impressive part was the hair detail when the sun shone on it.

With PC gaming thriving so well I do expect to see better focus on PC graphics over the consoles, as we've seen in GTA V but also other games.

So don't cheat. Problem solved.

Some differentiation between mild cheats (fov tweak) and blatant cheating (aims/invulnerable/etc) would be good. Valve needs to set some standards there (fov/anti aliasing/mouse accel fixes/etc/etc).

This is going to be ultra fantastic

Looks like they've improved pretty much every area. Hopefully the gunplay is better this time around, though. Hard to tell from this footage

+1. The gunplay needs improvement over JC2.

Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) will introduce a bill in the House of Representatives to stiffen the penalties for those convicted of "swatting."

Ahh.. So it won't solve anything but will allow him to grandstand. No wording in there to limit swat powers. Any idiot could come up with that idea: criminalize and increase existing penalties. He didn't solve a single thing.

Blue you have my empathy. Have you called the police about the dog noise? They should handle it. If they resist sending the police out, just insist. Pretty sure they have to come if you insist.

You'll probably need to call a few times before the owners actually fix it. I look at it as a property rights issue. They are trespassing on your property with noise. You want reasonable enjoyment of your home and property.

edit: asking kindly in person first might be a good idea (or might not depending on their maturity).

Thank you Task.

Cool beans descender. Yes it's difficult. Yes I threw those terms out there. I did try to put them into my context and define them, how I see them.

Right now I'm not sure how to put it into a different context without fear of misunderstanding or misinterpretation or conditioned mind filtering (we all do it!). I dunno.. Tomorrow some time after the mind has reset, read post #9 again?

Well you can't just throw the words collectivism, corporatism and socialism into a blender and hope for the best pal. It's slightly more complex than you are letting on.

That has nothing to do with what you did. Take what I said into your own context.

From my perspective you are simplifying it. I have a different mindset. A new mindset is very difficult to try or adopt or better understand.

You're taking what I said in your context and not in my context. Also you are cherry picking what I said. Ultimately I believe our system is a reflection of our insanity, not our economic system. However our economic system and our insanity amplify each other over time and this is the result - spying results and human oppression and suffering result.

That the regulations are to benefit the collective used to be more true. Now it's just a lie. The corporations are mostly writing the regulations to control their markets. It's a modern mercantile empire.

Corporatism is NOT the other side of the coin of capitalism. They are more opposites. Left and right wing socialism are two sides of the same coin. They are both socialism, or authoritarianism.

I would agree though that we evolved from capitalism to corporatism but that doesn't make them part of the same coin. Corporations are collectivist entities created by the 'state control' of tax law, etc. As you said before, state control is not capitalism.

In a true capitalist system there would not be corporations as we understand them now. They would be much smaller and they wouldn't be able to hide their employees from their individual actions as the law now does. Genuine capitalism is an alien concept to people today. A genuine capitalist system is benign (we don't have that). Our system now is ravenously greedy, destructive, paranoid, arrogant, fearful and immature. These are the qualities of the collective ego.

Capitalism: an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.

Please allow me to reply twice to your post. That may be a good definition of capitalism. However that doesn't represent our economic system because of the last part "rather than by the state." Our economy is almost entirely controlled and regulated by the state for the benefit of the government and top tier corporations and other corporations who cooperate and 'play the game.'
