Right because it falls right along with about 20 other games that are these explore/survival games that are unfinished. Yes this is 1.0 but I'm sure they have so many features they want to add, that many other games in the same state would have just called themselves Early Access. The one difference is save games from a released game vs early access are completely different, they will need to keep compatibility.

They all certainly sound neat but how do they expect to make money catering to the tiny amount of VR owners?

Fostering a future?

As I start my investigation I found this video first, quite good in presentation:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTadHMK3ELs

He looked into after a lot of reports.

1. He never noticed an issue prior to hearing about it.
2. But he continued to hear so he wanted to test.
3. He shows in the bethesda games he ran it had a high DPC. Witcher did not.
4.After looking deeper, the DPC was caused in startup, alt-tab, and exit and not during game play, he switched to windows mode to bypass alt-tab to measure while playing. As he stated he played for over an hour with smooth game play.
5. He concluded this is over reported. People are seeing spikes because they are going in and out of the app and that is the cause of the spike.

I will say that is just one sample and more can be done, but I did find it interesting and will continue looking into this. Does someone show where going in and out of an app isn't measured and just pure game time playing?

It's a good thing gas cars never catch on fire, no wait.

1 Tesla fire post shield installation per 100 million miles driven.

Compared to:

1 traditional car fires per 20 millions miles average driven.

Still 5 times safer with the current, albeit limited, data.

Someday they'll have to stop making a fuss out of every incident, 1 traditional car catches fire every 17 hours in average and that's ONLY in the US.

It does sound like there is a lobby against advertising a Tesla failure whenever they happen as if new-tech has to be perfectly pristine. Face it fear is rampant and they use it.

Have absolutely no desire to play Overwatch and Hearthstone. Nor Diablo (do not like the subject matter). Nor Heroes of the Storm (it bores me). And my WOW sub is pretty much coming to an end. Don't care for Legion (it's more of the same). I have the complete StarCraft 2 game that I can barely bring myself to play (I find it boring).

I guess what I'm saying is Blizzard no longer makes games that appeal to me.

I feel the same way, but try telling that to the 15 million other idiots who drank Blizzs Cool aid.

But then there are things like opinions. IMO you don't have to like something and also not care what others like. That said, I haven't done Blizzard in a long time. Overwatch probably is fun like their card game, I feel I already played Overwatch game years ago for less and can go back there again, sure not with millions of others, but more than I need to play with. I assume a lot of people want to play the popular thing because it keeps them in a popular topic and crowd. Maybe instead of a TV show being water cooler topics, popular games are.

The thread explains that it happens mostly at high framerates, 70+ FPS, vsync and some other things. Also some Windows versions seem to be fine.
It also explains that Nvidia always had problems with DPC latency, yet it never was that big of a problem that you could either see or hear it. That is only happening with Pascal.
So yeah, the average user wont see it, most actually dont even realize, even if they have that problem. My friend for example bought a 1080 and has that problem, but he didnt even notice it until I pointed out the obvious. Was quite funny, and now hes mad as hell at Nvidia, even more than I was at the 4 GB lie of my 970. But Im not going to pay that much money to be an average user or ignore stuttering/crackling.


If that were to happen to you. Since you mention things like vsynch which I don't use, other things and some windows version. I'm confident my game is smooth in appearance and feel, unless there is something really less visible. But fine don't buy the card, thanks for the heads up though.

As I said, some report it. Some report it happens even with Vsync off at high FPS in games like CSGO. You can go check your DPC latency yourself with listed tools and need to understand what it is. High DPC latency is never good and WILL sooner or later make problems. I had my fair share with that before, even without Nvidia cards. The whole system will slow down and other problems will arise.
If I had a latency of over 250µs (Nvidia cards always cause a DPC latency of about 150), I would be worried. But I guess some people just like to waste money for extremely fast stuff, only to have it crippled by things like that...
Not to mention tolerating shit like this, tells them to keep doing it in the future.
It is unacceptable, and it doesnt matter if you "feel" it or not. Its there and its a problem.

I like your knowledge Muscular but you end it too harshly. I will get some tools to test to see, but I'm still getting very high frames like I should be getting and I'm not having slow down over time, assuming a few hours at a session is a legit enough time. I do get being technically sound, but I also deal real world to and if it isn't affecting me it isn't affecting me. Perhaps there are variables and the game that is being played comes into play... I do get your point.

The small indie developers are suppose to be above such unscrupulous tactics, right?

OK I gotta ask - who is supposed to think small indie devs are different to other people? I know that these people exist, I'm just not sure what stereotype they are supposed to belong to.

Who was dumb enough to think they had a small studio mentality when Sony picked them up and treated it like a AAA? There is no way a BN regular is this stupid to really fall for any of this. So were just taking up someone elses lameness cause they aren't smart enough. Come on, did someone actually fall for any of this here at BN's?

I know. My point is that to do it the normal way requires an account. A lot of people aren't comfortable editing the registry.

Good thing I and most here aren't a lot of people, I get the point, but I'm not the one carrying the load for "the people" here.

Yes it is exactly what we seen for the past year. IMO you can't be a regular reader of Blue's and not know the concerns mentioned about the repetitiveness of procedural gaming. Do I have to care for every gamer in the world that throws around $60 over the next big hype? Them's da suckers if they end up not liking it and feel robbed, open your eyes and ears.

Any words if these fix the DPC latency and stutter issues people are having?

Top of the morning to you, Sir!

They fixed that about a month ago and every (beta) driver release since then has had it incorporated, of course.
Wrong. Not to mention you didnt seem to have read your own link properly, especially the last few sentences, where he clearly says its not completely fixed.
People still having massive problems and the "hotfix" didnt do crap in most cases:
overclock.net
Thats the sole reason I didnt buy a 1070 yet.

By the time I bought my 1070 and my son bought his 1060 the hot fix was already out, so we never played without it. I have never seen the stuttering video or audio. I was thinking perhaps it is something that can be measured with equipment or perhaps top twich players may feel and that was either fixed with the hotfix or again something I can't see. But unsure, just know I have had nothing but smooth gaming, I also went with a 144hz monitor so I no longer vsynch either.

So is it massive? As we know, a small voice can sound like a lot, I'm 2 for 2 on not seeing this problem. It doesn't seem to come up much at all at PCMasterRace at Reddit.

Reading from the link you gave, it seems this stutter would be very apparent to the naked eye. I don't have this issue. I'm aware of what micro-stutter is. I will say some are mentioning they notice a momentary stutter once on start up of a game, now that is something I may see, I do recall something like that, thought very little of it, since it was a one time on start up thing and gone before you know it. Will keep an eye out. But that alone would have zero affect on me grading the cards.

Windows 7 updating with it's previous 100's of updates has always worked fine until just recently.

It takes FOREVER though. Every new PC we image with Win7 at work then has to sit there "checking for updates" for like 2 - 3 hours (some of them have to sit overnight) just because of the ridiculous number of updates that it has to check for.

Rolling them all into one would cut that time frame enormously.

On the flipside, I do agree that MS is most likely doing this so you can no longer choose NOT to install its spyware updates.

Why wouldn't you image after one has all the updates?

Also just to report, Disabling just the Windows Update seemed to be an issue like you mentioned. It would change it. However a little more digging turning off the BITS server service and Windows Update service, approaching a week on 3 units and neither has change the state yet from Disabled. My 3 units do not have AU applied to them at this time.

I get your point but it is taking them on a scavenger hunt and obviously they aren't able to clearly understand how to get to point B. So since the people can't handle it, we just let this go on? My guess is they will need to add something to show them a proper path and not through peoples yards. I would have a large problem with this at my residence and I'm like a hermit.
