Do they have natural disasters or random attacks from monsters or space aliens?

Not yet, but the devs said they'd either put it in for free via a patch or el-cheapo dlc. That was the last I heard on it.

Well done Colossal Order!

I'm not surprised that it is maintaining sales, without a well known developer or title plenty of people will have waited for word of mouth or simply not have heard of it before launch. Until a couple of months ago I had been confusing it with Cities XL.

Same I didn't even know about the title, and I thought it was something along the same lines. Word of mouth on here, and I snagged it...I don't regret it nearly 50 hours of playtime already and I know I'm on the low end compared to other people.

You need to upgrade your RAM.

640k is enough for anyone. It's sad though that I can remember when 4MB of ram was $250...how the days have changed. Anyway, enjoying the fuck out of the game, but I gotta finish my Metro:LL play through before I can really enjoy GTA V, otherwise it's just going to piss me off to no end.

Holy fuck. How do you screw up so badly that you forget that a large swath of the world doesn't use just a single character set.

This thread has 11 comments in the past 2 hours, and the AMD GTA driver thread has 0. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...
Don't worry I added a comment just for you so that thread didn't feel lonely. I'll actually post an update on how the drivers are when I finally wake the fuck up. There must be a metric fucking shit ton of people downloading the drivers though, because I'm pulling 140KB/s instead of ~4MB/s like I normally do from them.

So by Steam card you mean you still have to download the game from Steam or the DVD install registers with Steam?
If there are no DVDs than might as well just get the game from Steam and save the taxes

It depends on the store. Some will get physical boxes with dvd's others will only get cards with codes.

Oh and 4hrs 44minutes until it unlocks.

Really?
Good to know.
My comment was regarding online key stores

Yep. It just depends on the store and location as to whether or not they get any cards, or only limited numbers of them. But good enough, I've been up 28 hours now so stuff has started not making sense. :p On the upside when I wake up I'll have a whole 12 hours of GTAV to enjoy.

The one and only place you can get a Steam key for this game is from Steam directly.
Retail store keys are steam. A buddy of mine works for walmart here in Canada and it's all GTA V steam key cards.

Not a headset solution per se but this is a good mic.

You can attach it to a lot of headphones since headsets are usually rubbish.

I have a 5.1 surround sound setup that I use for gaming(nice thing about not having to worry about anyone else in your house), so it needs to be headsetish in that sense. Something to keep in mind though if I can't find anything else worthwhile.

Are you kidding? It downloaded super fast for me. I got it in just over two hours. It did slow down to like 300kbps at one point, but it was a server issue I think. Once I restarted the downloader, it gave me a better connection and sped right up to ~10mbytes/s again.

I downloaded it last week, and I didn't have any download speed problems. My connection tops out at ~4MB/s and it used all of that to download it was still ~8 hours before it was done. I'd hazard a guess that in some cases it tries to find the closest repository to download from, which may or may not be accurate depending on how they determine that.

Argh, too bad I'm in Europe. I bet we'll be on different servers. Will I still be able to join the crew ingame anyway, I wonder? My aim is awesome, but I suck at driving so I'll be riding shotgun. "Shotgun!" There.

I joined the crew. "Vince-Quinn".

Guess we'll have to wait and see, I'll also have to spring for a new headset since my sister took mine when she moved out west. If anyone has recommendations on something I'm all ears.

Funny, I'm old and have played all Witchers and most Elder Scrolls. I say it looks a lot like Skyrim. Fanstasy, check. Open World, check.

That's like saying oranges are like potatoes. They both grow, you can eat both.

Cutter wrote on Apr 11, 2015, 03:19:
I've seen that now and then with almost all my ATI cards and I've always assumed it was just a driver issue. Something at the hardware abstraction layer. With my new rig I have a kickass power-supply and I know it's not that, and my DRAM is all good too. And given that I've seen it over a few cards over the years only reinforces the suspicion that it's software related.

The biggest problem I've had on ATI cards is the 'flicker' when the driver resets due to a timeout. It's similar to the TDR on nvidia cards. Having a kickass PSU doesn't mean that it can't have problems though. There's always some weird shit the can cause problems though so it always comes down to trial and error.

Cutter wrote on Apr 11, 2015, 03:15:

Apparently ASUS doesn't do that, which is what the guy at Canada Computers said in the first place but the Sapphire was cheaper and now I know why. They used to be a good company. Apparently they only shit the bed in the last few years with some new CEO taking them down the wrong path with this sort of nonsense.

Unless ASUS has changed it in the last year, all of their RMA's are referbs/factory repaired. The last two mobos I got back from them for a repair were also marked referb/repair, that was about 13 months ago.

You may be on to something with the voltage considering the same thing was happening with my 5870 before the 7970. Just weird that it's not more often if that's the case.

Well if you've got a bad rectifier, or failing caps, it will only show up sometimes. If you've got a spare PSU pop the current one out and see if it goes away.

I've checked the temperatures, they seem in to be well within normal ranges. It seems to be pretty random, sometimes it's right away other times it won't happen at all. It's definitely corruption on specific memory location because the artifacts will only occur on specific geometry in the game. If I look away from that spot everything is fine. This is really noticeable when playing City Skylines. Some random intersection or building will start doing this and will give me a little light show even when rotating the camera as long as it's on the screen... but if I pan away from that the rest of the city is fine. Never happens in CS:GO or other games but then I'll play another FPS and there it again, blasting off of some random point in the map or maybe a piece of the HUD. I get it in Civ 5 occasionally too.

Check the line voltages on the PCIE connectors to the card, chances are you've got a bad 12v rail in there somewhere. Or you've got dram that's going for a shit.

Me too. Got the Sapphire though it already died and they replaced it - with a refurbished one. Assholes. I won't be buying from Sapphire ever again.
Pretty much every company does that including EVGA. I had my 560Ti die on me about 6mo after I bought it, it was replaced with a referb.
