You just gotta love Torvalds.

He's not wrong either. Sometimes his lack of filter works just as much as it should.

??

Many titles will have 4K support out of the gate (Forza 7 among many others) + HDR, 4k BluRay playback, etc... Not sure what the problem is?

Does Blizzard have a Battle.net launcher on Mac? If not this would be my guess.

News Comments > Star Wars: Battlefront II Beta Extended
10. Re: LG VR HMD Specs Oct 10, 2017, 15:32 Shineyguy
 
I'm a long time Battlefield player. Battlefront (2015) and Battlefront II (2017) are so dumbed down that it's laughable.

BF2015 had, maybe, 10 hours of play in it, only had 4 maps, and two game modes. Limited character selection, and these "cards" that you used to customize your character in two or 4 different ways.

Also, add that you can only pair up with a friend, no parties beyond 2 people (which is, maybe, 4? now?) means that it was next to impossible to get into a game with more friends. I regularly play with at least 5 more people, upwards of 10 so that makes this game untenable in terms of group play.

No server browser.

Overall, there just isn't much variety to the gameplay like there is in Battlefield. Battlefront SHOULD be just a Star Wars Battlefield, if it were it would be so much better. But instead we keep getting this watered down shit.

Cancelled my pre-order.

I'm pretty much fanboy anything for a Star Wars game, but after the disappointment with the first, and playing the beta here of the second, I can't recommend this game to any of my friends.

Only using 1 or 2 CPU cores in this day and age is a terrible decision.

Allowing the game to be at least as good on PC as it is on XBone is a terrible decision... for MS.

Which is funny. I bought FH3 after all the issues on PC were sorted out, and I really enjoyed the game, both on my XBox and on my PC. Just confusing as to why FM7 wasn't coded with all the effort that was already put into FH3 applied to this new game.

And H1Z1 wouldn't be in existence without DayZ, Daybreak.

So what? Hardly an entirely new concept anyway.

Starts in windowed 720p then jumps to 4k when fullscreened, all on a 2560x1600 monitor. Runs like garbage, with massive interface pauses and hitching throughout, on a factory-OC 1080 and NVMe SSD, yet Forza 6 ran nearly flawlessly. Pretty when it's not awful, but 22GB, really?

If you've turned off Framerate Smoothing in the settings, that could be the cause of the hitching. In FH3, it's a stutterfest if you don't have that turned on. I'm not a fan of the Forza Motorsport series, but OH BOY do I love Forza Horizon.

I'm assuming you have at least a 4-core processor, as you didn't list it. If you're on a dual core, it's gonna struggle. FH3 puts a processor thru the wringer, but it IS open world, so it may have higher demands.

I have FH3, mostly maxed out, no framerate smoothing on.

No hitching for me.

Though I'm well over minimum spec, and I also have g-sync.

So, from 980Ti to 1080Ti isn't the 50% to 60% improvement I thought it was? I mean, that is definitely within a generation. 780Ti to 980Ti looks a little smaller, maybe 30% to 50%. That's still quite a jump.


But expecting to see 70% generation to generation, especially when core counts are around the same, is pretty insane.

Yeah, you'd think these guys would have been closer knit, but this is entirely not the case. I know there was always strife with Romero, but it looks like it was a place where they all butted heads back in the day.

"No PC version of Skyrim VR is planned"

Why the hell not!? I don't understand that.
Also, I KINDA hope they have hardware blocks for people using Rifts. So tired of Rift users defending the Oculus store's hardware exclusivity, maybe they'll understand the annoyance Vive users feel with the Bethesda releases.

So you're a fan of segmenting the VR space more then? That's hardly a good thing for anyone that owns any kind of VR headset.

It is, and its also a bullshit plot by M$ to try and force people over to Win 10. And no, I wont buy into the fact that they say DX 12 would not work on Win 7. That's bullshit.

And it was bullshit, too, when they said that the new DirectX would be limited to a new OS and would not work on XP, then Vista, now 7? More than a decade of making people buy their new product - EVIL. No other company has ever done this before! Oh, wait...

Yeah, much ado about nothing.

Look, they can make DX12 work for earlier versions of windows, but there's many reasons not to.

They offered Win10 for free for a year, if you didn't jump on it, your loss (though you can STILL get it if you do a couple things).

Don't want to spend the effort or resources to make it work on an OS older than Windows 10. Solid business case for that for them.

Making the game for DX12 is much cheaper for the dev than if they were supporting other APIs, that's the truth of this. Well that and MS money for the game.

No great loss, win 10 only = avoid!

It's likely it's a DX12 title, which means Win10 only. Gears is this way too I believe.

It being a second party title I'm not really all that surprised. Regardless I'm all in on getting it for PC.

That Shkreli jury selection is one hell of a funny read, like seriously, why even ask for a jury decision? That's incredibly foolish. I mean fucking hells, I heard of him and I hate the guy and I am not even American! I wouldn't want me on the Jury either.. to be honest. Never could I be impartial in the face of such literal exemplified corporate greed

That jury selection sure did read like a shit show, huh?

You need to adjust the headset properly. The weight of the unit should be on the top strap on top of your head.

Make sure that the "triangle" formed by the straps straddles over the point in the back of your head; the bottom of the side straps should sit near the base of your skull where it meets your neck. That should take the pressure off your face.
