Have any of you noticed a specific setting that cause fps drops or judder?

Advanced distance scaling seems to do this for me even if set low on the slider.
Mind you, I have no other advanced options enabled.

GTX 970 here as well

Do you have a weird, barely noticeable stutter every two seconds that drives you fucking nuts? If so, you probably use Self Radio. Don't. Remove the songs from that folder. It's integrated like a bitch and it will rape your game.

Other than that, set Grass to Normal.. maybe High. It has an insane -- INSANE! -- impact on your performance.

MSAA renders the images twice (x2), four times (x4) or eight times (x8). Logically, this setting is very performance heavy too!

I don't know to what extent shadows impact performance. I have it on "Softer" and never really changed it because they already make me drool. So... you may want to look into that as well since I've no idea.

go play counterstrike, then come back to GTA V. it's like the controls are drunk, but i'm just angry.


Yeah, if youre used to a typical FPS PC game responsivness it really is a pain. Its really not that bad, once you get used to it you hardly notice it, but for us oldschool FPS guys it is annoying as fuck.

Of course the FPS controls are bad. This is a third person game heavily based on character physics. No FPS-only game does these character physics because you simply can't see them and it looks weird when you fall over or move. The FPS view in GTA is more like a novel way of seeing the world temporarily. It's so well integrated though that I play the game entirely in first person for everything. The FPS view in GTA V should be celebrated, not complained about(well, complaining can be good, but you know what I mean).

Well, they integrated it and so it should work well. And I think it does work well in every aspect -- taking into account you're still attached to your physics-rich character model -- except for the notorious FIELD OF MOTHERFUCKING VIEW!!! I mean, they add a slider.. a long, tedious slider... and yet the FOV sucks so hard I can feel the vacuum from here.

As for the mouse-lag.. yeah, that sucks too. I no longer have a problem, but that's because my fps is solid. Before, when I tried the game on my GTX 680, the game was nearly unplayable due to some weird input lag.

M/KB here and not seeing any need for a controller whatsoever. Hell, even flying works fine with WSAD and keypad, although I do miss the ability to look around and take in the view with that setup. Fine-tuning the mouse-controls for flying may be a good idea, because using them as they are now makes my plane uncontrollable.

Hmm? With mouse control off for flying you can look around freely like the consoles, flying with keys. When you hold left mouse you then fly by looking.


What I said is that I miss looking around when I fly with WSAD + keypad, obviously because I don't have three hands.

The combat and leveling system of Infinity engine type games was always shit. So people who liked those old games really liked crap gameplay with moderate to decent stories.

Quoted for Extreme Stupidity.

If we go by sales numbers my comment stands. Infinity engine games are casual RPGS. They got nothing on early PC RPG's or console RPG's for that matter. RPG players tend to be the worst amongst gaming at videogames generally. aka thats why most RPG's today are giant movies. This trend was started back in the infinity engine era, you could say IE RPG's were one of the first 'story based RPG games' before cinematic gaming became a big thing.

What a giant non sequitur, this. With that logic you're basically saying FPS games have better combat than (C)RPG games, while you obviously shouldn't compare the two this way. You better stop talking now before you make an even bigger fool of yourself.

I'm not sure how you replay them prior to completing all of them. Once I completed all of them, my heist board changed to offer me a selection of heists to replay.

Hmm alright, that might be it, then. It also came to me just now that I should try to call Lester. Like the other contact give me Jobs, he might give me the opportunity to start a completed heist? Worth a shot once I'm back home.

Quick question:

How often can you be the leader of the same heist? 2 days ago I've been leading my very first heist, and my friend and I wanted to do it again the moment we were finished. However, I didn't find any option to do this whatsoever.

It's very hard to find any information about this on the internet. I cannot believe that you can only complete a heist as a leader once. Does each heist has a cooldown, then? Of a few days, maybe?

If someone can shine some light on this, it'd be highly appreciated.

Alan Wake was a game with great atmosphere, but I didn't like the gameplay mechanic. I loved Max Payne 2 more, in fact it's in my top 10 of all times. Max Payne 2's gameplay was undeniably fantastic, and the story was good enough for it to really stick to me even weeks after I finished the game.

By the way, I've not even remotely appreciated Lords of the Fallen enough before when I was playing it on my GTX 680. Evidently this game needs a solid 60 fps for the gameplay to truly blossom! The game is just crazy CRAZY good!!! Anyone who has a 780 or 9xx card or similar should definitely get his hands on the game if they even remotely like these type of games. Fantastic graphics; fantastic gameplay!

To not be silly this time, I'll surgest 'Amra 3'.

Don't know if its your game play style, but the engine does do some nice graphics work.

Night time, flares, amazing.

I've seen Arma 3 being mentioned a lot of times on the internet as being a performance heavy game. Yours was the last comment I needed. *starts scouring the net for a cheap price*

Can anyone who bought this and has a vidcard with only 1gb of vram chime in on the performance? I'm waiting for the next revision of maxwell to come out (980gtx ti or whatever they'll call it) before upgrading my super ancient insanely overclocked 460gtx SLI setup (which really still handles everything just fine).

I'm on the fence if i should just wait to grab this and the card at the same time like 6-8 months down the road or just buy GTA5 now. Part of me thinks if i get it now, i might spoil the experience with lower textures.

You will spoil it. No doubt in my mind. Not a single second. If one game is VRAM heavy, it's GTA5.

The most amazing visuals you get driving the countryside/mountains at dusk. My goodness. MY. GOODNESS! Either that or during a thunderstorm. In those settings the game is one of the best looking, most amazing games I've ever played.

Sometimes, on very rare occasions, the game goes nuts and I get about 20 fps. A friend of mine with the same rigs experiences the same sometimes and it's always near the borders between the big city and nature areas (mountains, sandy flatlands). Not entirely sure what to make of this, but it's damn annoying to have a game play with a steady 60 fps and then suddenly drops to it knees like that.

I'm curious about what control scheme people are using... only mouse and keyboard? Only controller? Both?

I started out intending to switch to controller for driving but I actually got pretty used to it with the m&kb.

GTA Online has been a pretty big exercise in frustration for my friends and me.

We often have to try multiple times to get into the same session, whether public, friends, or crew session. Often times after completing a mission or other online activity we end up split up into different sessions. Many times we can't join each others sessions from the friends list without an explicit invite or else we simply get an error like "Could not find compatible friends session."

That's to say nothing of the frequent time outs while joining sessions, and the horrible workflow for dealing with sessions. For example if I am in a public session I apparently have to load into single player to create a friend or crew session.

There are also some pretty annoying gameplay decisions. For example blowing up personal vehicles to get some guys armored vehicle off your ass gets you flagged as a Bad Sport after a while, plus you have to pay a fine every time.

I'm experiencing the exact same issues and frustration with my friends.

Rockstar should really turn off the "Bad Sports" thing until they get their server issues fixed. Personally I have zero tolerance with server issues when a company is so extremely EXTREMELY successful. Get your goddamn shite together and buy some extra servers, greedy bitches!

Bioshock Infinite was running pretty ace already with the GTX 680. That game really isn't that performance heavy somehow!

Battlefield 4. Good one! Lets see if I can get that somewhere cheap...

Another what I would consider huge tip for GTA Online: Once you've bought your first house, don't roll into your garage with a car! If you do, after the cutscene of rolling in you're back outside the garage completely frozen -- the game hasn't crashed, but you're unable to do anything (you can't even get into the menu to quit the game, for example). This is because the game wants to give you an instruction about the things you can do in your garage. When you roll in with a car, it's something the script evidently can't handle.

I bought the most expensive place (500.000,- dollars) with the pre-order bonus. That, plus a car that looks like a '67 Chevrolet Impala. Then I bought some smokes at a store, headed into the mountains, parked my car at a place with a beautiful view of the city, and lit one up.

Good times.

I'm having some stability issues with GTA Online as well. More notably is the instability joining a friend's session. Somehow that often just doesn't fly.

What I disliked most of GTA Online is the fact that there is no real "party system" in freeroaming mode. Imagine WoW without the ability to create a party, and all you can have to have a sense of community is guilds. That's how GTA Online works: No real party system, just guilds (CREWS!). So the first time when I started a job while my crew mate was sitting shotgun, I simply disappeared and due to auto-invite the player slots were full in a second and my mate was simply left out. It was extremely frustrating.

Now I've learned to turn off auto-invite by default and start my own jobs through the Menu. Manual invites to Jobs you've started yourself is the closest thing to a Party system.

I reported the first post (not the second, guess he's got multiple fans) because it was just pointless abuse and while much of this thread hasn't been a happy place, I felt it crossed the line. It was certainly a heck of a lot more than calling someone a douche and treating those posts as remotely the same is unreasonable - as he knows perfectly well.

Krovven has consistently been rude or unnecessarily aggressive and he deserves to be called out on it by anyone. This is not a one time thing, this is not a few posters, this is pattern and he just comes across as incredibly childish - an insult he's oddly attached to considering his love of mindless insults.

Yeah, I think Blue is remarkably patient considering it was the umpteenth post breaking the rules from that user. I would've counted myself lucky and moved on instead of trying to shift the blame. Anyone breaking the rules on that consistent a basis would've eaten a ban on any other forum long ago and I know because I frequent more than a few and see the bad apples get tossed. There isn't even active moderation here, its completely reactive and based on user reports. Blue doesn't read every thread so sometimes people get away with one thing while another user doesn't because it got reported. If Blue ever nominates a few mods to clean things up (long overdue IMO) some of you will quickly realize what other forums are run like and just how good you've had it all along.


And some of you will realize exactly the same. Because lets get one thing straight here, some of the "veterans" here are maybe the worst of all but get away with everything because they're all forum pals of eachother. And that's exactly the problem here, the inconsistency of it because it's all based on friends not reporting eachother, yet reporting every little slip of the less popular kids.

So, yeah, Verno.. If Blues would get impartial moderators, lets see how you'd like it.
