I assume you put the timing values for your ram manually into your bios,

Didn't DDR3 make timing values basically irrelevant?

No, some systems can auto detect the values with XMP turned on in bios but many still don't set the voltage high enough.

Recommended Windows 8? Rotfl


It doesn't take much to turn Windows 8 into Windows 7.1, install startisback for $3 you can boot to desktop, get your start menu back, and turn off all the metro access stuff that annoys everyone. No you shouldn't have to do any of these things but at least you can. There are some nice features that 8 brings for desktop users.

I think it's just to show that it's supported, I think they had a limit on only supporting Windows 7 for the closed beta which people mistakenly took as no support for Windows 8 for the game.

I assume you put the timing values for your ram manually into your bios, if not that's what I'd check first. Might also want to try bumping up the voltage a tad and see if that helps.

sometimes it's the simple stuff that causes the most grief.

"From the makers of Aliens Colonial Marines..."

At least this way the game should be around for a long time, most of these free-2-play attempts shutdown after a year.

I was looking for assurances that they're not going to turn it into a "social" multiplayer centric racing game, I hate that facebook like aspect to new racing games.

100k doesn't sound like nearly enough, I think they're missing a few extra zeros.

I would think McCain would be more into a nice game of "Global Thermonuclear War".

How is it that the radioactive plume moves slower than the debris that's already made it from Japan to the West Coast?

I'm still not sold on Cryengine being a good match for a space sim but we'll see I guess.

I'd be interested to hear your concerns. This looks pretty good to me. So does this. Both of these are game engine footage.

let's just hope the cut scene cinematics are equal to actual gameplay.

my main concern is that the engine feels more suitable for FPS type games, it doesn't exactly stream content on the fly like you would need for a game of this scale given the level of detail one expects from the game. I just hope it doesn't have that "shoehorned" feeling you get from some games that use engines that aren't designed from the ground up with the clear objectives they set out to achieve.

This is just like Hollywood churning out superhero movies every year but unlike Hollywood where you have to deal with aging actors with massive egos you just can't put out a blockbuster "wining formula" Batman movie every year, but I'm sure they would love to keep that machine going.

I doubt there will be a Battlefield 5 next year, it'll be Star Wars Battlefront/field instead.

And lastly there's a huge cost with making things too realistic that most companies have chosen to eschew pushing things to the hardware limit. With fewer games pushing the hardware, there's less incentive to upgrade.

For some people it's all about being able to max out the sliders and still have a playable frame rate. I tend to turn off almost all of the extra "effects" if I can because I find it annoying to have motion blur, depth of field and lens flares everywhere.

If nothing else hopefully the "next gen" console ports start to look much better texture wise, having to suffer through the limitations of PS3 and xbox360 ports has been pretty bad.

SSD was one of the best upgrades I've done in a long time, especially for slow loading games like Battlefield 3. I read they screwed up the compression of the files or something, only the DLC packs seem to load off of mechanical hard drives with reasonable times.

Get an SSD just don't skimp and think it's only good for a boot/OS drive. You'll want all your main applications installed on it as well as a few games.

They'll have an open beta next month so we will see before release.

Dice is treating it as nothing more than a stress test, they usually pick a stable yet older build to do this with. Any broken or missing features are just assumed to be made to work by release. Everyone likes to spew "It's BETA!!!" when you complain about said missing or broken features.
