It's been confirmed that they're not using Battlelog for the game, there won't be a server browser.

I'm guessing it'll be instanced servers for the 40 player game modes and p2p hosting for the on-line co-op portion.

Some people might see this as a good thing - except for clans who like to take ownership and admin their own servers, but I guess it depends on how they handle DLC players from those who don't buy the DLC. Will you get kicked from servers when DLC maps come up in rotation? Maybe it'll automatically move you to another server that's running a non DLC map.

So the SMB redirect glitch puts up a prompt to enter your user name and login password for windows?

It doesn’t take much to prompt someone to enter their credentials, after all – just a legitimate-looking dialogue box.

and then what? Even if you're dumb enough to enter it into the prompt what could they do with it without having local access to the PC?

Japan strikes me as an odd one, they're perfectly fine with tentacle rape but splatter blood around a map in a game and they flip their shit?

where's the real FOV patch? i don't think lensing the shitty console FOV counts. it looks awful.

and how about the persistant mouse lag?

how the fuck this this game pass QA? 19 months AFTER launching the game... and 5 years beforehand... and no one tried this game on a PC at rockstar once

It's not looking too good for them officially tweaking the FOV, I've been using a mod make it higher.

I don't have mouse lag, the movement feels a little like ARMA when walking around in first person - sort of a "man simulator" type effect which can feel like mouse lag I guess.

Game is running fine for me though.

Well who in their right mind would be expecting or wanting that?

It sure sounds like some here are not familiar with the expected gameplay in a Battlefront game at all.

Because DICE is making it maybe? At any rate I was expecting more of a hybrid between the two at the very least.

40 player max, two man teams, split screen co-op on consoles, no traditional single player campaign - you play through the multiplayer maps in story mode, co-op if you want obviously.

Sounds like there will be "battle pickups" that you find around the map to equip most things or to take control over certain vehicles (AT-ST was a given example).

Anyone expecting (or hoping) it would be a Star Wars themed Battlefield game are going to be disappointed this looks much more casual. At least it appears like you won't have everyone in the game running around using force powers and swinging lightsabers. Some have speculated that you'll gain access to hero characters from some sort of point-kill streak system but I'm going to guess it's a random battle pickup on the map.

On phone and dint want to edit a huge quote. But regarding hood cam and head bob, you can turn off head bob in the options.


I'll have to check that out, I played with that setting and thought it was for first person view / mode.

@jimnms

I'm only considering this title because of the first person view. Last 3rd person perspective game i've touched/enjoyed was Max Payne 2 lol.

Are you experiencing the mouse/input lag issue? I was going to buy the game after work but i'll probably hold back since most reviews and youtube vids are in 3rd person. Last but not least, I've read reviews that mention the multiplayer modes but, I have read anything regarding how games are accessed. Is there a server browser?

No server browser, you go online and you're put into the GTA world on what looks like an instanced server that holds up to 32 people. From there you can either put yourself in passive mode where you can't be killed (except from being run over I think). You can do some activities in this lobby type system like kill other player (only if you turn passive mode off) and rob 7-11 type shops where once you do you'll need to evade the cops.

The other things like deathmatch and TDM, races and heists are all things you activate by walking into blue circles on the map, once you do you'll be put into a match making "queue" system which can take several minutes before you're actually playing the mode. These are all player hosted and I don't think there's any host migration - if the host quits everyone gets dumped. The host is randomly picked - at least in public play and gets to setup the game parameters like difficulty level, time of day and other things.

Some modes you can respawn like in racing, others have a limited amount of team respawns but modes like TDM seem to be one life modes, die and you're in spectator mode.

First person view is hampered by a low FOV, it maxes out somewhere around 80 using the in game adjustments. There's a mod that lets you set it higher, I'm using the damn thing as it makes the game so much more enjoyable to me.

FOV Mod

You can also host Invite Only sessions as well as Solo sessions online. They don't have the grouping of friends and crew members down yet, same problem they had on consoles at launch. It's best to launch jobs and invite people from there.

I advise turning off Matchmaking by default so you dont have to do it every time you are trying to do stuff with Crew.

I advise everyone after logging into Online to go through your settings thoroughly. There are multiple menu's. Press M for the ingame quick menu. Esc>Online>Options as well as Esc>Settings>Online as well as all the other Settings.

Using the arrow keys and Enter I've found to be the fastest way to get through the menu's once you know them.

I play first person when on foot, 3rd person High cam in car, 3rd person cover enabled (too limiting in first person), 3rd person rag doll, etc. Basically 3rd person with everything except when on foot. You can set all these in the Options menu. I also changed first person in car to be the hood cam for when i do want it. No more windows, roof, dash making it impossible to see anything other than whats right in front of you.




I tried hood cam but the camera bob effect is just too strong, I wish it had a bumper cam view. Maybe someone can add more views with modding.

They can just about add Battlefield Hardline to the list.

Only thing I could find is this "report a player" post on R* site, which only goes so far as to be busy work for frustrated gamers that ends up in the recycle bin.

I read somewhere that the FOV is resolution dependent, if you play on a 1440p monitor the FOV goes higher.

I don't think there's any anti-cheat in GTA V is there?

Nope, user error.

You need to mouse wheel up from right click to "zoom" and look through your scope.

I call shenanigans!

they removed this from the game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53rdE8w8oLE

only 3rd person view from outside the car now.

Did they? I know you see strippers 100% topless when you get a private dance, including a loose minigame that mandates first-person. Odd that they'd take out first-person view for prostitutes, when they really don't show anything there. I will have to do some investigating myself...

I could have swore I was in 1st person view in the car and it switches to 3rd person when you do the dirty deed.

First person mode is a lie, you can't look down the scope on your assault rifle in first person mode. Game does look freak'n awesome though, really puts other engines to shame graphics wise.
