It's lasted through two different video drivers. And it's always one time slow, one time fast. One time slow, one time fast. I think they just forgot to take a "decrypt shader cache" command out of there, but the game's been out nearly two weeks now, and still no fucking patch in sight.

Ah well, I should have known better than to trust Bethesda to deliver something properly.

Lasting through 2 doesn't really mean much. The skyrim problem I mentioned lasted around 4 months for me, through multiple driver releases too. Though if you're right about it being a shader cache problem, you should be able to sniff that out pretty quick with a debugger.

Gonna toss this bit of OT stuff in. Since there was some people talking about Planet Coaster and the new RCT title. And it's rather funny.

How about you first do a philosophy of Fix Your Three Fucking Minute Load Times To Get To The First Menu. Followed by one of Fix Your Shitty Performance.

Sounds like you've got something else going on. Doesn't take me more then 35 seconds. And that's on a 5 year old 7200 rpm 2TB seagate drive. I've had similar problems in the past with skyrim. Literal 5 minute load times, the culprit? Video drivers.

If you're concerned about what's going on in the paved streets, you're looking the the wrong way.
Pro Tip: You need to be looking at who will soon be in the White House.
Because if you did, you would be joining those in the streets.

Yes, because paid agitators by moveon, answer and other leftwing groups, destroying property isn't a problem. Nope, not at all. The problem is the anti-establishment candidate and the fact that the DNC threw their rulebook out the window and fixed their own primary process along the way.

But hey, let's complain about Trump! Never mind that garbage like TPP is dead. That shitty trade deals like NAFTA will likely die. Or that the previous president has racked up so much debt that it was more than every other president combined. But let's pick the corporate candidate that would continue the crony capitalism, unrestrained QE, and was pro-importing labor to replace people inside the US.

Yeah, he campaigned on anti-DC corruption and isolationism. He went after sacred cows that neither part would touch like the lobbying ban and a more isolationist foreign policy. Anti-free trade too.

Now he's installing the worst of the Bush Neocons and stocking his team with lobbyists.

Not fair!

Useful tip: Shit like TPP, NAFTA and so on aren't free trade. They're fair trade.

By the way, anyone else remember when people on the right were rioting in the streets over Clinton or Obama? Yeah...me either. Keep digging, and showing why people think and believe the left are fully unhinged.

Because they won't spy on you like nvidia cards will? Or because amd has more non-whql drivers then nvidia.

That's why a bunch of people in the DNC "quit" when the email leaks came out right? No guilt, no problem. They even went directly to Hillary's PoTUS campaign.

They can piss off and go to Mexico or Venezuela instead. We've got enough far-left retards trying to screw us over, we don't need them helping the situation.

jdreyer wrote on Nov 10, 2016, 02:25:

LOL, dude. The Dems weren't kicking blacks, latinos, women, & handicap people out of their rallies. Trump was.
Trump wasn't either. Except when they were agitators, just like the ones that would show up at any other candidates rally. One also can't forget that the DNC had an entire network of paid agitators. That mini-riot in Chicago wearing Sanders t-shirts? Paid clinton work, that comes right out of the DNC and Podesta emails. The guy the other day(who was locked in a bathroom) when Trump was rushed off the stage? Paid agitator, known as a birddog in the Clinton Camp, the guys name and FB profile even shows up in the Podesta emails.

Huh, and here I thought the last one was the last one.
Well the book Metro 2035 was released last year, it's a good book BTW. Seeing a game from it this year would have been surprising. Especially since the games and books mirror each other fairly closely.

windows 10 is a piece of large smelly SHIT.

Windows ME was better
You must be pretty young not to remember the complete shitshow that was known as Windows ME. The constant crashes, the out-of-the-box instability, the sneeze at it wrong it'll crashes. Massive required OOTB tweaks required under the hood. Comparing Win10 to ME is silly-stupid, if anything it's closer to XPx64 in a lot of ways. Good ideas, shitty implementations, various compatibility problems. But once you get it all working, all tweaked, it's great.

You think? Does the 64bit exe really make a difference in the save data files? I mean, the xbox 360 saves for Skyrim worked with the PC version... why would they change the format just for what amounts to a graphical upgrade?

I'm curious as to what this means for mods that use SKSE... the UI mod that I used to use made use of it, don't think I could go back to default UI. lol.

Well keep in mind that stuff like papyrus(used for scripting) is very CPU dependent and starts getting twitchy even transferring from AMD to Intel or the other direction. My guess is that they'll have made fundamental changes to various parts of the game, going as far as combining all of the expansions into a single master file or a couple of master files instead of having independent masters for each one. That in itself will completely fuck up save data, since the save file will be looking for specific master information that's encoded with a header prefix that no longer exists. If that's the case, then creating a dummy master which directs scripts/textures/mesh/dialog to the proper location in the new masters is doable. That's what was done with Tale of Two Wastelands(TTW) to get both games to "talk" to each other.

SKSE? No biggie, the team will be releasing an updated version for it and will be continuing parallel development on both. A lot of mods as long as they're not dependent on specific things like "must have dragonborn or hearthfire" should work right out of the box still. And as long as the mod author didn't do something silly like directly reference something instead of having the script look for the variable name in the table instead.

On the upside, this might get me interested in modding again. Especially since some of my old mods could probably be cleaned up for the x64 release, especially if they don't work.

472 hours? Is that all? I don't knock all the time I've put into playing these games, they've more then paid for themselves. Hell I've got ~600 hours in FONV and another 300 in FO3. Wish FO4 wasn't such a shitshow though.

Really a lot of those "big sites" like Polygon, Kotaku, RPS and so on shot themselves in the foot when they decided they cared more about feel-politics and other bullshit instead of reviewing the games. It's so bad that some developers will no longer even talk to big name sites some even refusing to send out general press releases, but will be more then happy to talk to small ones, along with streamers and people who do "let's play's"

Cram wrote on Oct 25, 2016, 23:50:

It is a separate installation, but on top of that a 64bit version of the game. I'm 99% certain save games will not carry over barring some kind of programming miracle. Hoping I'm wrong for those that want to continue.

I would recommend starting fresh anyway. After a month+ away from a save file for any game like this, who remembers what they were doing or what to do now anyway?

Pretty sure they won't transfer over. I'm sure someone will turn around and try to make saves work, but there's no real reason to. If you haven't finished the game in the last 5 years, well you probably won't be able to finish the game when this gets released anyway.

"PC sales downturn longest yet" but PC sales were up just months ago. Then again, more people building their own PC's isn't reflected in this analysts data because it considers "complete" PC's as the standard metric. If the sales of components were so poor as this guy claims, companies would be folding all over the place. Instead specialist shops are expanding and big component retail sites continue to expand.

The analyst also fails to realize that there is no big "push" on upgrades for anything but gaming. A machine built 5 years ago is going to do a perfectly fine job for anyone who isn't a gamer, and for the people who only browse the web, read/write email and watch cat videos tablets and low-power laptops do the job.

There goes the next month + ...

Yeah. I got nearly 1500 hrs into the original, and my first play through was over 200 hours. I haven't touched the game in a long time simply so I could enjoy that "new" flavor all over again. I'm just hoping that most mods are compatible out of the box. I can wait for the SKSEE stuff a few weeks.

1. If you don't jack the price, people will still buy and consume it. You could give the veggies and fruit away for free, but if the Oreos are $2 a box instead of $6, people will still buy them weekly as a regular habit instead of monthly as a treat. You have to make it painful to buy for the disincentive to work.

2. Black markets are a non-issue. Nabisco and Coca Cola aren't going to enter the smuggling business, and there's no way to home-produce these products. Also, we're just raising the price a bit, not banning them so they're readily available. Most people prefer to follow the law. Think about it: you pay 1.5 per l for unleaded petrol in Germany because your government taxes the shit out of it. We pay 0.5 in the US. Is there a black market for petrol? No, people just use less of it and use the public instead. That's what I'm proposing.

Except that they will jack the prices via taxes, and people will start to look for that black market. The only reason for this "health scare" is because people sit on their asses more then they did 20 years ago, and even more then 50 years ago. Consuming this same product was popular then, the number of lard asses were minimal. The correlation and causation are pretty easy to figure out, and it sure didn't help that governments spent years pushing the "your kids should stay inside" with the help of the media. Especially in the 1980's and 90's(when helicopter parents were a huge thing). I don't know about your parents, but mine said fuck it and let me run around like crazy as a kid and teen as long as I followed their rules. I never fucked up enough to be hauled in front of the police, but I sure did plenty of stupid things. Now the chances of a kid being outside doing those same things whether it be war, cops & robbers, or whatever. Is more likely to have you and your kid labeled as racists, or sexists or some bullshit and have childrens aid called on you for "endangering" the kids. Hell there's a dozen stories of people having childrens aid being called on them here in Canada, for having their kids doing things in their own backyards like playing in a sandbox. Why? The parents were hovering over their kids.

People also thought that black markets were a non-issue. And while those companies aren't going to be entering the smuggling arena, other individuals and organizations will. This isn't any different then cigarettes. Canada has a huge problem with tobacco smuggling, it's directly related to the exceptionally high tax rate. Who are the primary smugglers? Natives and criminal organizations, though the natives can manufacture their own and sell them(as long as it's to natives) with no taxes. Though it doesn't stop anyone from buying them as long as you're smart and watch out for the RCMP running tax checks just outside of the reserves.

FYI: There are petrol black markets too, they busted one in Quebec back ~5 years ago. When it's advantageous to buy something from the 3rd world and import it, someone is going to try. You can bet your ass that someone will try to make money off it. Hell the US has an illegal "kinder egg" market.
