those bird things were annoying as shit. I was minding my own business scouting an outpost thing to try and take out silently when I hear something behind me. I turn around and it's some of those bird things charging at me. They nearly killed me and blew my stealth. After that I went out of my way to run over or kill every one I saw.
In this one you've got eagles that come out of nowhere and sink their talons into your face.
While playing on my buddy's system for maybe an hour there were 4 bird attacks and 2 snake attacks... along with a rhino, leopards, a bear, wolves, etc

Was a tad excessive.

Game sure is fun, though.

The same stuff and same that goes on sale in the fall is repeated during the winter sale, and they'll probably do the card crap during the winter sale again. You might as well wait and spend your money then so you can sell the cards to make a little back.
I vaguely remember this card thing they had going.
You get cards for each purchase, but you're saying you can sell them back or soemthing?

Actually, you would be wrong Creston, the camera was locked to the char. you did not have to hold down the mouse button to look around. That is what most are complaining about, myself included.
That does sound like a pretty glaring design flaw. Hard to simply claim ignorance on it, too

And don't equate 3 words in my post with the entire meaning of my post.

If you are planning on complaining about the return on your kickstarter investment, just don't use it in the first place. I think that's a pretty obvious take-away from this story.
Fair enough

Stop. Using. Kickstarter.
Why? Because one prominent project goes belly up? I backed several games on Kickstarter which turned out very, VERY fine.
Yeah, simply saying to stop using Kickstarter is ludicrous. Plenty of great projects have come from Kickstarter, as well as some stinkers.

a publisher for a developer could just as easily change features on a game similar to what Frontier have done.

descender wrote on Nov 20, 2014, 14:22:
If you want to donate money to a company to fund them, that's OK... but understand what you are doing. You are donating money to them, giving it to them completely risk and return free... and hoping for the best.

Sure, you can look at it in a negative light, but please don't equate that to "You shouldn't ever use Kickstarter"

Well, that's kind of BS. Bigger, more advanced games the stretch the limits are going to run worse. Unity should have been delayed, but it is technically impressive and a much more difficult game to run. Crowds like this have never been seen before, and I'm guessing they rely on pretty advanced parallelism to make it work - one of the hardest kinds of programming to optimize.
I'm not disagreeing with the fact that it's a far harder game to optimize due to a lot of factors.
My point is that if your game is running horribly on a wide variety of systems (consoles included), you need to turn it down a notch.
Sure, crowds like that have never been seen before, and maybe it's too early to have them, judging by the performance this game is apparently putting out.

If you can't have your game run at a steady 30 fps on the newest consoles, you're definitely not optimizing enough.

COD is a linear snooze fest with 2001 gameplay and ok at best graphics. ACU is a next gen open world with some unique features and graphics that push the enveloppe.

Do what you want with ACU, but don't encourage COD!
I see your point - and I'm not a big fan of COD - but regardless of the scope and size of a game, it shouldn't run like shit... which is how AC Unity runs. It's unacceptable for any type of game.

Did you edit both the config.cfg and config_mp.cfg to change these to from 140 default to zero:

seta cl_pitchspeed "0"
seta cl_yawspeed "0"

This solved all the terrible jerky mouse movement for me.
Thanks buddy, I'll try it out

At the risk of being flamed I will say this is why I respect Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and think it is worth support with our money. It comes out on schedule with a very solid PC version.
I agree. COD AW runs like a dream with only my GTX 570 and has all the PC options you need.
I do find the mouse acceleration to be annoying, though. I can't seem to get rid of it, even in windows or with my SetPoint software.

Also, the feel of shooting in COD has never quite felt right. There doesn't seem to be much weight or sense of impact.

Thanks for the info Beamer

@Spectral: Yeah I figure they're going to find out about my Brazilian Fart Porn fetish regardless of what I do, so... meh

And I do find Chrome faster than FF. I did a test of both of them just yesterday.

Can't gamestop get in some pretty serious trouble if their staff sells to minors?

I had a brief stint working at EB Games when I was younger and I shut down a woman trying to buy GTA3 for her kid.

we have detected a distinct discrepancy between what we observed in the pre-launch versus post-launch environment

That's the fanciest way of saying "we didn't test in enough detail" I've ever seen. Someone in PR has earned their money today!
Totally. I was almost convinced!

It's run perfectly so far but I've only had it for a month so that isn't much of a sample.

My MSI 970 4G is perfectly stable OC'd, in fact it still runs at lower temps/noise levels than the card it replaced. I can get mine way up to +150 core +500 mem stable. It is a fantastic card, I can't believe how quiet these things are even at load.
Thanks guys

LgFriess wrote on Nov 18, 2014, 17:45:
Hey guys, when you're posting your systems please add what resolution/monitor your using. It makes a massive difference if you're playing at 1080, 1920, 1440, multi monitor, etc... this information is very useful to a guy like me planning to finally upgrade his dinosaur system (q9550@3.4ghz, 7870, 4gb ddr2 playing at 1920, it's been a glorious run with only a gpu upgrade but it's finally time).
I'm assuming at least 1080p, which is A-OK with me. 1080p with proper AA is absolutely fine as far as I'm concerned. And I play on a 42" TV four feet away

Not Darks but I've got it maxed out here too and it's sublime. I have a 3570k CPU OC'd to 4Ghz and the MSI 4G 970
Nice, I've also got a 3570k OC'd to 4Ghz

I was thinking about getting the MSI 970 but my MSI 570 OC hasn't been all that stable.
Have you encountered any issues?

Surprising that they're still going with the "skin an animal, and just pull a chunk of top sirloin out of it" routine.
I was also surprised by the hunk of meat you gain from "skinning" an animal.
A simple fur texture with a colour change would make a hell of a lot more sense.
