Holy shit...

Found this on the forum:

1) Navigate to your "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age Inquisition\Save" folder
2) Open the "ProfileOptions_profile" file with Notepad
3) Increase the "GstRender.MeshQuality" parameter by a factor of 1.
4) Save the file, open the game and check the quality of the graphics.
5) If the meshes are not high quality again, repeat step 3.

Thanks, Creston!

And lol, dwarf..

Two interesting things I found out about the controls last night..

While in tac cam, if you hold SHIFT you can pan the camera around the field with the mouse. HUGE improvement for me (though there's plenty of other already mentioned issues still).

And also, it was tweeted that the snapping back to your party members when you choose them in tac cam is a bug and it'll be patched out in the next patch. Definitely retracting my statement from earlier that it's sometimes a good thing. That was in the small battlefields of the tutorial, later it's just 100% annoying.

Between that, the missing walk key, and the newest NVidia drivers causing shimmering in game I'm holding off on playing for a bit.

You'll need Origin to play DA:I, it doesn't load without it running.

Someone on the forum the other day mentioned that the encrypting of the exe happens in memory, not constant writes to the drive. I have it on my SSD, and kept a close eye on the HD light on my case. It doesn't go crazy at all when running the game, just lights up about as much as one would expect.

After playing through the tutorial thinking this is one of the most gorgeous games I've ever played, I suddenly noticed that Texture in the graphics menu has a higher setting than Ultra.... "Fade Touched"



Also, fix for 30fps cutscenes...

Does work for me, but it gives a weird stutter when panning the camera using mouse (but not keyboard, oddly). Most people seem to have no issues with it though.

I temporarily moved to Korea this morning as well, and the tactical camera is *not* identical to Origins. However, you can use it just fine with a mouse, but some of the points Redmask mentioned are true.

From what I just played you have to issue commands one character at a time, and it does recenter on them (that's kind of actually a good thing more often than not..). I didn't test holding down the shift key and try hitting multiple F1-F4 keys, that may do multi-char selects. I kind of doubt it though, it's just not set up for that kind of commanding. But... you get to tune how your characters fight on their own with behaviors.

The combat system is really a hybrid of Origins and DA II. That said, I quickly got over the changes because the game is freaking fun as hell. I've only played the linear tutorial part, and even in that there were places to explore. I found a rather out of the way nook with several demons hanging out and a pretty good stash of loot that was completely off the path you end up heading up on.

I'm playing with graphics maxed out and it's gorgeous. Probably the best looking characters in any game. Can definitely notice subsurface scattering on the skin, and the textures are top notch. Frame rates are choppy, but I think an official NVidia driver will get things running smoother. I don't think SLI was working.

On thing that irks me though.. with mouse and keyboard you can't walk. You sprint at all times. Hoping that'll get patched, because there's a key mapping in the game's menu for "Sprint" which is defaulted to the Shift key, but that doesn't affect how fast you move. You seem to be sprinting full speed already. No external ini file with keybindings either.

Dang, you'd think World of Warcraft would be the worst idea for a game ever based on reactions here.

My only point being is I bet they honestly didn't expect this big of a shit storm over this. I wonder what their metrics were in terms of people playing in online modes vs off?

Still getting this.

I would advise avoiding the Gamespot review, the guy apparently dropped a hefty spoiler in it.

Come to think of it, I'll prob be avoiding DA threads in general for a while starting right about very soon...

I don't hear anyone complaining that DA:I seems like its too linear though. 4-6 hours wow by the way, I remember the prologue taking half that time.

Yeah, could have worded it better. My point was the first 4 hours of either game probably aren't a good indication of the quality of the rest.

Like the guy in my example, who was still in Ostagar after 4 hours (which is where I was at on first play through), if you didn't realize the game opens up to a full world map and you can choose where you go you might dock the game for being way too linear.

DA:I may not have the it being linear problem in the beginning, but it also must have more strengths to it that come into play later. Like the quest with the guy who joins the cult. They complained about how the cult is just a mention on a note. Someone in the comments said that opens up later into a full fledged thing.

They seem to be comparing the beginning of DA:I to the whole of DA:O.
