BBQ season is never over, heathen. =P

I found a good guide for succeeding in competitive matchmaking in Overwatch:

http://itshighnoon.eu/home/how-to-win-overwatch-ranked-complete-guide

Might be something to add to the next update. It was helpful for me, and most players I've been grouped up with in competitive could certainly learn a thing or two from this guide.

I just want to know when the AIB RX 480 cards will be here en masse! I need a new card!

I've read that there is a bitcoin bot that is buying them all up, can't state if true or not but everyone seems to be having issues getting a hold of one. It seems several have been moving over to 1060's due to this.

The 1060 is superior in almost every way, at a very competitive price. I don't see why not.

In regards to VR. Yep, time to bring the price down and start working towards the next model. That is how electronics work. I'm totally for VR, but they are at the point if it is true that the ball is in their court now to make it more attractive. I was looking at early spring 2017, but something has to have changed by then, like a $200 reduction or better gear.

Or, a killer app/game that can be the standard bearer for VR. (looking at you, Half-Life 3)

Looks good, but I'm reading that it only has local multiplayer, not online

The creators have publicly stated they are working on online multiplayer currently. With how good the word-of-mouth on this title is, I anticipate sales being at least halfway decent enough for them to attain this goal. We'll see.

News Comments > ARK Expansion Follow-up

What a load of bullshit. If you wanted to test this functionality you could easily release a companion ARK to the people who have supported you through early access to test it instead of charging the same or more than many paid for the base game for a small expansion.

They are literally funding the developer's $40,000,000 fuck-up/settlement with his old employer by gouging their user base with this early-access paid DLC shit. Not to mention that shit like this splits up the community even before launch, creating inaccessible servers that are behind a paywall, where if you see a friend playing you are more inclined to bite the bullet and pay the toll troll.

At this point, who cares?

I do. I've always wanted to play this game but not owned a console in the past decade. If this pans out I'll be happy I waited. Rockstar has been hinting at this for a while now and I'm looking forward to when they announce it finally, and then playing the best possible version of this game on PC.

It's so nice when the Blue's crowd gets together to celebrate new Star Citizen news.

Hugs & kisses all around, with the occasional fist up the ass.. and I only stick around because that is *exactly* my kind of party. <3

***FIX FOR NVIDIA USERS GETTING GRID-LIKE PATTERN IN GROUND TEXTURES***

This is the first game I've ever seen this happen with, but BF1 does not jive with "High Quality" texture filtering settings in the Nvidia Control Panel. It creates this grid-like pattern along the ground. Only known fix right now is to set texture filtering to default (Quality) in the NV control panel.

This looks really good! Just sold about $25 worth of junk from my TF2 inventory so it looks like a good chunk of that is going towards this game! Too bad they aren't offering a 4-pack though..

Shitty beta.

Not only is EA/Origin offline but WTF is this shit:

- You can not map your thumb mouse button to reload? Seriously EA/DICE? In 2016 you fuckers are not supporting more than three mouse buttons, even though every other game in your same shitty franchise does, so I have to assume you were simply too fucking retarded to copy&paste your own shitty console garbage crap code?

I use the browser back thumb button for reload in all games and it mapped fine for me in the options in BF1. Just make sure you're mapping it under the mouse column in the middle and not keyboard or joystick, and it works fine.

Havent been able to play yet, as immediately after I finished setting up my controls/options, it said I was no longer connected to the EA servers.

Thousands of hours in BF games.

I am drunk, and I am home.

Then maybe put a couple hours into figuring out the new game mechanics and get into a good squad that can take objectives. I'll squad up with you if you want. I'm not drunk yet, but I'm good company.

originID: IIISLICKIII

"NO RESULTS WERE FOUND FOR IIISLICKIII"

Try mine "The_xXBatmanXx"

found it, added

Everyone should post their Origin ID who wants to squad up. We'll be the BN crusty old people brigade who just complain about everything and try our hardest not to have fun

While I wouldn't buy a DS4 controller for this, I happen to have 2 of them, and I fucking love them, syncs with bluetooth on pc just fine. And ergonomically it's the best controller I've ever used.

+1

Would be nice if they at least provided keyboard options...but if I am stuck with a controller at least I am stuck with one I actually like to use.

Agreed. The DS4 is hands down the best gamepad I've used on PC. The only downside is that it doesnt have xinput support out of the box, only directinput. Luckily with programs like input mapper this isnt an issue, but input mapper and similar programs can have a bit of input lag compared to native directinput. x360ce is the best solution in this regard, as it does not seem to have the overhead that the fully fledged programs like inputmapper and ds4windows have, but on the downside it has to be installed for each game you want to use the DS4 with, which is not very difficult at all once you learn how to use it.

Ok well about the uninstalling drivers I'm wondering cause after I uninstall and restart, by the time I load up the installer for the new drivers there is already drivers for the card installed (like 3 versions old) so does that make uninstalling and restarting kind of pointless?

That's was an issue I had when I was doing the clean sweep yesterday. I ended up manually removing the drivers through device manager (uninstall -> delete driver) and then running the DDU software to completely remove all traces. Upon restart it only found a generic VGA adapter after that.

I tried turning off automatic driver install/update through the group policy editor even, but I think it was installing a locally stored copy that was lingering around Windows. Either way it was a bit of a pain in the butt, but DDU helped. Usually you should only need to install the newer ones, and if concerned about a messed up install, try the "clean install" option in the installer. I only did the full wipe because I wanted to bench the differences in drivers properly and remove some of the components completely like 3d vision and the HDMI audio drivers.

Okay, I did some benchmarks going from my previous driver version to this newest one, and they look promising so far!

Each was done with a sequence of 5 identical timedemo tests in TF2, before and after driver installation. Old driver was uninstalled along with all Nvidia components with a clean wipe using DDU. First run is tossed out and the average of the remaining 4 runs is listed.


-Previous driver (368.81):

139.34 fps ( 7.18 ms/f) 22.321 fps variability



-New driver (372.70):

154.19 fps ( 6.49 ms/f) 20.284 fps variability


*Note: previous installation had Nvidia 3dvision drivers, HDMI Audio drivers, and geforce experience installed as well, new install has only display driver and physX installed. I'm installing the beta version of geforce experience now and will test after install and report back if that lowers performance at all (doing testing with shadowplay off, but will bench the performance hit with it on too)


EDIT:

Results with GeForce Experience Beta 3.0.4.35:


-Geforce experience installed (program running in background, sharing overlay disabled):

156.10 fps ( 6.41 ms/f) 20.544 fps variability



-With sharing overlay enabled, but nothing activated in overlay:

157.12 fps ( 6.36 ms/f) 19.137 fps variability



-With shadowplay enabled in sharing overlay:

154.80 fps ( 6.46 ms/f) 20.225 fps variability



-With Twitch streaming enabled (720p 30fps 2.5mbps) in sharing overlay:

154.36 fps ( 6.48 ms/f) 20.112 fps variability


**Tested with an i7 4790k @ 4.7ghz, 980ti OC, 16gb DDR3-2133 ram & Windows 7 64-bit. System was restarted after driver install, and after installing Geforce Experience Beta.

Just a heads up to everyone with 900-series cards, according to the driver release notes, this driver enables "Fast Sync" on your cards now. I'm pretty excited about this addition, as I do not have a g-sync monitor. No tearing and no v-sync with a minimal input lag hit. Some games like the new Unreal Tournament will benefit greatly from this addition, as the tearing is awful in that game, and there is no way any competitive player would ever turn v-sync on.

FastSync is only truly beneficial in high fps scenarios. Good luck getting 2x or 3x as much fps (120 to 180fps on a 60Hz screen) as your refresh rate with a GTX 9xx card in the new UT.

From here...

The major downside of Fast Sync is that (as a senior Nvidia engineer explains here) it is only truly beneficial in very high FPS situations, typically when your framerate is at least 2-3x your display's refresh rate (e.g. 120-180 FPS and above on a 60Hz monitor). At lower framerates, because of the way Fast Sync essentially samples/drops frames, you may notice similar sorts of latency issues as traditional VSync On, as well as stuttering. So in practical terms you should only consider enabling Fast Sync in older games, or newer games where the settings have been turned right down; basically only in games where you can guarantee very high framerates.

Seeme like UT won't be a good test for this as I expected then.. shame too with the horrible tearing in that game, even though I get 120+fps consistently with everything set to max..

Gonna have to test with games I hit 240+ fps with then, like overwatch and TF2. I've experimented with using lightboost/ulmb with both of those games but having vsync on (as is recommended with lightboost/ulmb) always has that noticeable input lag. (even with fps capped 1 below refresh and triple buffering)

Why did the arguably better game not sell more copies than the worse game in the same genre from five years ago?

Dude do you remember the ad campaign for Skyrim? They saturated almost every media with ads for the game.

If CDPR dropped a hundred million on advertising their game, the numbers might have been closer.

Plus Elder Scrolls is a 20+ yr franchise. This is the 3rd Witcher game. How many games did the 3rd Elder Scrolls sell? I'm guessing not even in the same ballpark as this.

Also, it's hard to tell from the video, but they're touting a "new and improved driving mechanic". And when the guy's driving, it looks waaaay too "snappy", like the car has no real weight to it at all, and is just glued to the pavement.

I noticed he used the word "accessible" when describing the new driving mechanic. That's just another word for "dumbed-down".

No matter what they do it's likely to be a positive change. I mean, it's very unlikely that anything could be worse than the driving in Watch Dogs 1. Maybe Supra Mayro Kratt is worse but I cant think of anything besides that. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxYKu_lkY_4 )
