adding that Origin Access members will get access beginning on March 10th

??

So everyone will get it on March 10th, then? Since I doubt there's a way to play this without Origin.

Access is their subscription service. It's where people just pay money directly to EA every month, which I think we all know has been EA's dream all along.

Oh right, I forgot about that "Just pay us continuously so you can play our old crappy games" deal they have.

So, I have a strange issue happening now that I am on my 12th mission.

The game goes through the loading cutscene of the meat puppets in the delivery can and allows me to hit the mission start button fairly quickly. Then it shows the cutscene where the meat puppets drop down the rope and loads the world...and then pauses. From anywhere between 3-7 minutes. Just pauses. Disk (SSD) isn't especially busy.

I'm using the leadership, SMG, disable mission timer, and slower Avatar mods. Disabling them all and starting a new game exhibits the same behavior.

Anyone else seeing that?

I have pauses from time to time (and the game actually just crashed on me for the first time), but nothing that long...

why is that even a thing? like, i don't... i can't even... caps lock?!? really?

I'm honestly not sure what people are talking about. I tried it, and the loading times are exactly as long as they were before (ie, insanely long.)

The only thing it seems to do (I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like it is) is that it's auto-interrupting some of the small cutscenes and advancing you that way. (so it interrupts the cutscenes of the avenger flying over, and your squad rappelling down.)

Props to Ubisoft for not just shitting out another one and actually taking the time to retool it.

Yeah, people have been clamoring for it for several years now, but kudos for them actually listening. I never thought they would do this, so good on you, Ubi.

I'd love for AC to come back with a kickass game in 2017 or 2018 with new gameplay and a world where there's more to do than just "gather 100 of these and climb 20 towers."

2. 10 Skyrim secrets Feb 11, 2016, 16:50 Creston
 
More accurately titled:

A few Skyrim secrets everyone already knew, a few things that aren't even a secret (The Silver Hand followers carry Potions of Cure Disease? Really? *mind asplodes*), and a few things that were cribbed literally from the Lore of Tamriel book.

My performance was pretty terrible until I switched from MSAA down to FXAA. Slight dip in quality, but INSANE performance increase.

You're asking your card to render 50% (for MSAA 2x) less, so that seems fairly logical.


Also, hitting capslock while in the sky ranger to speed up load times is hilarious -- AND it works.

I need to try that. The load times are very annoying. There's no reason it should take 40 seconds to load something from a 500MB/s SSD...

I only get framerate issues during the load screens showing the dropship. All other times it runs just fine. I've got most settings at max, but I have turned off Depth of Field and think I have shadows set to one below max. 970.

Can't read it here at work, but judging by the title I'd say that that's pretty accurate as far as I'm concerned. I have literally zero desire to play competitive stuff online anymore, but I do lurve me some strategy.

Apparently, Santa Ana wind will not allow El Niño to encroach on its territory. It will be 84 degrees today - picture taken yesterday. 90 degrees this weekend.

It's a balmy 60s here today. Lovely weather.

That solar plant is very impressive. I shudder to think at how much it cost to build, but it's an incredible facility.

It reminds me of that tech bit that got pushed around a few years ago, about making all roads to have embedded solar cells. Sure, it's a great concept, but the cost???


Yeah, the cost would literally bankrupt the US. But hey, good job there, think tanks...?

not sure if they even want to do that, or have the capacity for it either

I think it's the latter. They're a very small developer (10 people, IIRC?) so they probably just don't have the manpower to tackle that.

The traffic simulation in the game it still the deepest I've ever seen in this type of game, and it's very enjoyable for that alone.

Cool of them.

I like the demos where you can buy the full game and then just keep on playing.

There are several mods that either completely get rid of them, or that give you a larger amount of turns. If you don't want to play with them, you don't have to.

Well for anyone following this thread still, I've experienced my first game-breaking bug which means I've got to start the game from scratch. Another thread on it here.

FFS. That pisses me off to no end, enough to want to get a refund.

I can't read the thread at work. What causes the bug, do you know?

This is why I never play Ironman...
