Nice try but not buying a MS console ever again. Fuck you MS. If you really care about PC gamers then you know what to do, hopefully.

Why are people picking on CJ_Parker?, he's just saying his opinon.

It seems he's an idiot for not getting this working

Haha nice try. As I have pointed out this "fix" is most likely working for no one since CIG has acknowledged the issue and is working on an official fix for v1.0.
Secondly, a FAQ by a dev at the official forums suggests to disable SLI. Guess why? Cause there is no fix maybe?
Thirdly, there are dozens of posts by people not able to run SLI. The only person I've seen claim this "fix" works is the dude in this thread who is probably just too retarded to figure out that SLI is not working for him and who is unknowingly playing with a single card because his SLI bridge is missing (happens to a lot of uneducated idiots who believe just plugging in two cards = yippie SLI!!11).

despite him also being an idiot for not accepting that unfinished software will have bugs.

Bugs are fine with me though I'd consider multi GPU functionality a rather basic feature for a game that is supposed to push the envelope and that is (or at least used to be) specifically aimed at the sim enthusiast segment where multi GPU setups are very common.

My more substantial discontent with the game as I pointed out comes from other issues as I laid down in post #42. Those are completely different issues though. I don't know why some people mixed them up and thought I was solely pissed off because of SLI not working.


Anyway, the game is pretty much doomed at this stage. Chris Roberts can scream from the top of his lungs that it's not pay-to-win, it won't change the fact that many people who have bought expensive ships expect to be able to beat the crap out of people who bought lesser ships. Not a day goes by where some stat on a ship changes and there's a shitstorm on the forums of people demanding refunds or crying about how it's unfair compared to some other ship.

So now they have really painted themselves in a corner where the whole game needs to be designed so the high spenders can feel like the kings of the road. They are risking massive disappointment and a mass exodus if not catering to the demands of that demographic.
Naturally all this is going to be very artificially restricting and constricting with regard to many design choices.

Besides there are so many questionable designs like the multicrew ships or the concept of exploration in deep space etc., you know, like today's ADHD gamers of which the game through its sheer popularity has certainly attracted many by now, like anyone of those gamers will be interested in serving as "crew" on a Corvette. This could mean just flying around for hours sitting there, doing absolutely fucking nothing. Yep. That will work out really well.
Or exploration in deep space trying to find jump points. Who wants to bet real money that the forums will be full of whining if people are going to fly for over half an hour without finding anything but "deep space"?

The game will be ripped to shreds by the modern gamers who expect action and entertainment every single second they're online.
This game is fucked. Roberts is smart to play with people's dreams though and make as much retirement money as he can while he still can because he's gonna need it once the game and scheme implodes on itself.

Not sure what some people here are expecting but of course this will be a simple matter of the game evaluating certain parameters/variables and then spawning the Alien on top of you. After spawning it'll be in Pacman mode where it will search for the shortest route to hunt the player down which shouldn't be too hard thanks to the corridor setup.

Not saying that this can't still be a lot of fun if done well but if you are expecting anything super-fancy, you are setting yourself up for major disappointment.

Have you tried not giving a shit?

Yes, I'm in the process of doing that actually. The way this game has developed disgusts me. The retarded hype, obtrusive marketing and constant monetization, even though the game has long been what was originally considered "fully funded", is pissing me off.
I have begun to auction off (eBay FTW) my pledge ships. The first one went for almost twice of what I originally pledged. Pretty cool. Other ships and packages will follow when the time seems right (like official sales of the non-LTI variants and I will sell the LTI thing on eBay... hmm... yummy cash ).
Oh well. At least I won't walk away from this with any kind of financial loss but only with lost hope, faith and trust.

I have CrossFire and SLI working with Arena Commander.

1. Start the game, and press ~ to open the console:

2. Type in the following commands:

r_MultiGPU = 2
r_MotionBlur = 0
r_vsync = 1
r_buffer_sli_workaround = 1
sys_maxfps = 30

sys_maxfps needs to be tweaked, I have mine set to 120 which runs flawlessly, but your rig will be different.

If this does work, and it should due to the bug that is causing the textures to "glitch" then you should create a user.cfg with the listed commands in your starcitizen folder.

Your a PC gamer. Act Accordingly.

Note: For whatever reason, r_vsync must be enabled, despite it not locking the framerate.

What makes ya think that I'm not acting like a PC gamer? Besides your suggestions, which I'm sure I've seen and tried before, changed fuck all. My game is still artifacting like shit. Turning SLI off is not an option for me. I got a 3-screens surround setup with 7680 x 1440 res. Guess what the framerate is like with a single GPU? Bingo.

Fuck this shit. Still waiting for a proper official patch.

It sounds like you're incompetent. Have you tried fixing that issue, first?

Incompetent? Right. And you obviously can't read because I've actually said that I have tried fixing the issue before (in fact many times involving all sorts of tweaking settings, editing, nVidia inspector, redownloading the game, everything...).

Also, you do realize that there are dozens of posts at the official forums complaining about lack of SLI support or asking for a fix? Also, you do certainly realize that CIG is fully aware of the issues and has announced a fix may be coming in Arena Commander v1.0?

Finally, feel free to give me a link and a source where the suggested editing of user.cfg has actually fixed someone's SLI issues.
Since it just seems to be a matter of "competence" it should be easy as pie to find dozens of threads where people are happily reporting that SLI is now working after applying the fix, right? Come on. Hurry up. I'm waiting...

Yeah. Who gives a fuck? SSDs in the 256GB to 512GB range have become so cheap that no one who has PC gaming as a hobby has any kind of fucking reason or excuse not to have one anymore.
Besides it even says "35GB required for installation" so it's possibly because of unpacking that a total maximum of 35GB might be needed during the setup process. The actual game folder size post installation might be considerably lower.
Or is this just a concern of the pirate assholes who are scared of a huge download cutting into their traffic limits?

As long as they don't fix SLI they can shove their patches up their dumb asses at the speed of light for all I fucking care.

For reference, Microsoft is currently the 3rd largest company in the world with a market capitalization of $340 billion. They have 100,000 employees. This offer puts the value of Mojang at almost 1% of that... an indie game being valued at almost 1% of the dominant business software company on the planet!

It's ridiculous.

But of course this isn't real money, here... it's inflated shares of stock. If you try to cash out all at once then you destroy the value of your stock in the process. You still end up filthy rich, of course...

MS Stock? 50 bucks a share.

Apple? $100. Google? $600. Why? Because they don't do dumb stuff like this.

It is incredible how completely fucking retarded you are if you seriously believe that the individual stock price directly reflects the value of a corporation or business.

MS probably has enough cash to buy Valve, IF Gabe was interested in selling, but he's never given any kind of indication that he was, nor that he'd be amenable to MS taking over and, undoubtedly, completely fucking ruining Steam.

One of the biggest gaming nightmares right there. MS would first introduce a subscription fee like Shitbox Gold, then intentionally place bugs all over Steam's source code so it runs like shit and crashes regularly, next they'd slowly abandon it entirely and let it wither away while plastering massive Xbox ads all over Steam before you even had a chance to see the login screen. Mission Xbox migration accomplished.

Just no. Please.

Ah this is probably because they enjoy shitting on the franchise more when it feels like taking a dump in the comfort of your home than a public toilet. Now they can really squat down in peace and let it all out .

"Bad Apples"

Diamonds and fast cars
Money to burn
I got my head in the clouds
I got these thoughts to churn
Got my feet in the sand
I got a house on the hill
I got a headache like a mother
Twice the price of my thrills
An it's a cold day,
It's a continental drift
I said this traffic is hell
Can you give me a lift
An I'll try to paint a story
Got your pictures to tell
Yeah you got to make a living
With what you bring yourself to sell

I got some genuine
Imitation
Bad Apples
Free sample
For your peace o' mind
Only $9.95
I got my camera back from customs
Got my law fees up to date
Hell they musta seen me comin'
Ain't this life so fuckin' great

When the shit hit the fan
It was all I could stand
Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
My body's breathing while it can
But what I don't understand is that
My world ain't gettin' no brighter
If I could touch the sky
Well I would float on by
While everybody's talkin'
Hell I'm just another guy
If it were up to me
I'd say just leave me be
Why let one bad apple
Spoil the whole damn bunch

Gold and caviar
Now why'nt you pour my apathy
I'd have all my bases covered
If I could teach my hands to see
But now we're down in the deep end
Where they'd love to watch you drown
I said your laundry could use washing
We'll hang it up all over town
I said Hollywood's like a dryer
An we're down on Sunset Strip
An you'll be suckin' down the Clorox
'Til your life's all nice and crisp

When the shit hit the fan
It was all I could stand
Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
My body's breathing while it can
But what I don't understand is that
My world ain't gettin' no brighter
If I could touch the sky
Well I would float on by
While everybody's talkin'
Hell I'm just another guy
If it were up to me
I'd say just leave me be
Why let one bad apple
Spoil the whole damn bunch

Why let one bad apple
Spoil the whole damn bunch
