  1. welp. what a sour return to a game. nvm then...
  2. Can mods explain the lack of premium then plz? Or an explanation on when it will be fixed?
  3. I tried BnS agian but I can't sorry

    Fell* which one you fell into. As by your own logic, you'd have to be in one of those categories you mentioned during any given time one is interested in the game.
  4. Engine/Client Update

    To change the engine is to redo/discard most of assets it currently uses. To change the engine to one that will perform better will cost a lot of time and money. Wont happen. It can happen, but it wont. It wont because its not financially profitable to do so. For those chomping at the bits after reading the first paragraph; I am not defending the dev/publisher's stance nor am I justifying it, nor am I being pessimistic. Just telling it as it is. As a player of the game you either deal with it, you try to find ways to mitigate the problem however you can, or you move on from the game. Three choices to choose from. Why just those three choices? Again, they cannot optimize the engine, because it cannot get any better, because they used the wrong engine for this type of game to begin with. Again, they will not change the engine because it would affect their financials badly, at this point it would be building something from the ground up/redoing groundwork(assets etc) which takes time or getting a licence for a streamlined engine(say for example frostbite), which will cost more.
  5. OHHHH fps

    Show me, where? Where can you find it in adrenalin driver version 18.2.1(which is what op said their driver version is) or 18.2.2, which is the driver I'm using currently? I've checked that before and its not there, at best you will get it on OLDER driver versions, which obviously isn't the driver OP is using. So tell or show the thread starter, where they can find CCC for radeon 18.2.1. Because its not there. It literally doesn't exist for that version of driver.
  6. OHHHH fps

    You cannot test the option you initially proposed "aa level off" because it doesnt exist on the drivers the op has, see I paid attention to *all* the details. You keep harping on about catalyst when catalyst is dead(to the op at least) As for x2, you get a performance increase from using x8 or w.e., but as I also said, many times before, I've tried that setting and the performance is still worse compared to if you didnt override anti aliasing the settings at all. Im not saying what you're claiming is wrong either, I'm saying its also based on a flawed presupposition. In your case its the assumtion that op is using drivers that give them the option of turning AA levels/aa settings in the driver "off" which is what your link(the first one you posted) talks about and refers to. Again, as for overriding aa and using x2, the performance increase still isnt better compared to using application settings. In fact, its noticeably worse, I've tried it myself as I kept saying over and over.
  7. Owner Game Optimize

    Thats ping, not fps lol. The game is plagued with networking problems like you're saying and have fixes to them like you're saying, it also has hardware optimization problems. As far as I know, from what op expressed, their qualms are with frame rate, hardware optimization. They made a thread before this one expressing their problem. Unfortunately that devolved into tangenting nonsense as some of of the ideas are based on inaccurate presuppositions, some of which clearly go against what the op says their problem is and the hardware they are using.
  8. OHHHH fps

    Ok, so long as you get it out of your system its all good lol @caioc2 https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/amd-catalyst-is-dead-long-live-crimson/
  9. OHHHH fps

    Lol now you're projecting, words like 'rage' and 'stalk' are nowhere near needed. You're the one that seems to be riled up for whatever reason and now you're trying to save face. You quoted me, asked me for evidence, then assumed I couldnt produced it, the evidence was produced, it supported what I was saying and others here even agree with, then your hail mary was to discredit it by saying its irrelevant. And when I call you out on it you say im raging, try hard etc lol. For the 101th time, your argument falls apart because it is based on the premise that driver settings are defaulted to the optimal performance settings. And again, this is not always the case. Sometimes it defaults to settings that can mess up some games, bns is one of those games. Do you want me to do a video gameplay side by side with one using a specific setting and the other using the override? Or are you going to refute that too? xD Lol you're so full of it. And I said it before in a post that was deleted for whatever reason, I'll say it again...anyone can take a screenshot of an image showing a specific fps number and say "oh I get x amount of fps" simply by changing the view to say the floor or the sky, then moving it back to a high texture area and taking a screenshot before the fps drops back down. Which is why I said video footage tells a better story than some screenshots that can be easily manipulated to support or refute w.e. claim one wants. This quote is sure to bring good laughs if posted elsewhere im sure lol. 8xEQ* is most costly, not 8x. Be that as it may, overriding settings and using whichever level after, still gives worse results than if you used use application settings or enhanced application settings. When I installed the card and driver, anti aliasing mode defaulted to override application settings. The very last thing I did was set it to use application settings/enhance application settings. Before that, I lowered the AA level, changing up other settings etc with the last setting being anti aliasing mode, which did it for me, as in it gave me the best fps boost out of everything I tried, which was lowering graphics settings, changing other driver settings etc. And its not a matter of understanding what others wrote, from the get go, my very first post and my 2nd one after it I address all possible causes of OP's fps problems and offered solutions to them, viable, working solutions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Radeon_Software_Crimson Likewise. Your premise is based on the op still using the catalyst control/older driver UI. Thats not the case: There is no "off" setting in Adrenaline 18.2.1 or 18.2.2(which is what i have atm). Nor is there any option that springboards you into catalyst control or any UI resembling such in these driver versions. The options that I showed in previous posts is what we both have to work with. Again, there is no literal "off" for anti aliasing mode nor any other anti aliasing method, it goes down to x2 for the lowest. There is no off.
  10. OHHHH fps

    Totally off topic. ;) Basically my premise from the get go. Totally off topic right? MMhm, so off topic that you bothered to ask for the video proof that I said I'd post. If it was off topic, why bother looking forward to evidence that is for or against what I'm talking about? I know why, its your strategy to basically discredit the evidence put forth, supporting what im talking about by dismissing it as irrelevant. Because if it was irrelevant to begin with, you wouldn't have pursued me in asking for proof. You are the one off topic here and besides the point because what you are advocating is basically the first thing anyone with a low end pc would do. What I am advocating is what most people would overlook presupposing that the settings are all optimal in the drivers by default. Again, that is not always the case and because of this, my point still stands, as it did from the get go. Again, I dont have to disprove what you are saying because, again, I never said you were wrong. Just missing the point is all. Its really a darn shame this thread devolved into what it did solely because you're too stubborn to realise while what u claim is/may be true, is genuinely missing the point of OP's post. There is no need to run settings on lowest/minium off the bat if there is a possibility of eliminating what could actually be the problem and narrowing it down by process of elimination. You can continue gawking over your screenshots and links if it pleases you so. Again, they may/do support what you're saying but its based on the false premise that settings in drivers are on optimal settings by default. Again, for the 100th time, that is not always the case. Well thats what happens when one is addressing someone else and another person butts in with irrelevant points, doesn't it? Im not addressing what your cares or needs are as they are irrelevant and not the subject of discussion, they never were. If u were the thread starter then that would be a different story. The needs/cares of the thread starter is what I hammered on off the bat. See the screen shotsof the posts I made if you forgot already by the time you've finished reading this.
  11. Owner Game Optimize

    The optimization problem will never go away because the wrong tool was used to do a specific job. Unreal engine was primarily made for small mapped, first person, small player count, instanced games. Not large mapped, open world, large shared instance games. The engine is cheap to use, its tools are readily available and the familiarity of it is very high, which is why it gets used on projects it should have no business in with the main reason being to cut costs/production time while still not sacrificing too much in terms of visuals, textures etc. Pubg Ark Survival Evolved Blade and Soul Linage 2 Bless Online Dc Universe(online) Yes, even Fortnite All these games and others like them using UE, when compared to other games with similar build/mechanics, are shown to perform dreadfully in terms of fps performance. UE shines in small mapped/shooter/adventure games the most. Most of these games have very linear progression and small/closed worlds/instances with small maps that need little interaction from the player. You cant fix the problem with the same thinking/tools that caused the problem in the first place, the most you can do is side step the problem or taylor the problem to fit the tool(UE). Fortnite performs considerably better compared to pubg even tho they are the same game type and have similar mechanics, thats because epic(the people that also made unreal engine) know very well the limitations the engine has when it comes to these large instanced, big mapped games. They side stepped the problem somewhat and what you see is a childish/cartoony depiction that the game portrays. Which in turn means less textures, less details needed for foliage, whatever. The idea is the game, on max settings, or any setting compared to pubg will perform better because of the lacking detail the game inherently has. With that being said, still. A high end/mid ranged pc has no business getting dropping frame rates, microstuttering, fps bouncing all over the place randomly etc. I suggested in another thread things this same OP @hussam haytham should do. I dont know if they did it or will bother to try it but food for thought; The effort it takes to type a complaint about something thats been complained about since launch(and rightfully so) can be used to try mitigating the already bad optimization this game has. There are settings, tools etc that will enable you to get a smooth experience on mid/high end hardware. If all of that still fails, move on.
  12. OHHHH fps

    Yea, its besides the point I've made multiple times now. Which is regardless of your ingame settings, if you override application settings for anti aliasing mode, on radeon/amd hardware, in radeon drivers, you're most likey to get a hard hit in fps performance. You then went on to say that it doesn't matter because anti aliasing mode defaults/is set to "off" or in other words "use application settings" which is not true. Not always true, as I've said before, I upgraded my graphics card from a lower end one to a higher end one and installed the drivers and it DEFAULTED to OVERRIDE application settings. The performance was LOWER/AS GOOD AS the lower end card I upgraded from UNTIL I changed the anti aliasing mode setting, did it boost the fps up to expected standards.
  13. OHHHH fps

    Yea, it was said 2 or 3 post ago: Continue with the derail if u so wish. I've simply offered a solution to op that worked for me, again, as the videos showed. As when I upgrded my graphics card and installed the drivers, it defaulted to ovveride appliction settings ;). So no, again, it doesnt always default to "off" like you assumed. I even offered a solution if its another case where they are simply using intel graphics xD. Meanwhile you're basically saying the sky is blue over and over again. And again, a screenshot doenst really give the whole story. Anyone can easily change view at the ground then look up and take the screen shot right before the fps dips back down xD. Which is why I've opted to do a video. I'm not try harding as you so claim lol. And if tryharding means proving beyond a doubt what I've been talking about all this time, then ok, I am. Now that you've seem to somewhat get a grasp of what I've been saying all this time, you're now playing it off as irrelevant, meanwhile you keep saying the sky is blue. Like, what else is new? If op is using override application settings for anti aliasing, then what I suggested will help them on top of whatever they do to increase fps. If they aren't using override application settings/default settings and have in game settings on highest, then sure, that's whats contributing to the low fps, but we dont know for sure because even op said they may be using intel graphics and if thats the case then they're more than likely to get higher fps/benifit with dedicated graphics in use and on top of that, set anti aliasing mode to enhance or use application settings or just having it in mind that override impacts performance heavily.(like the video u didn't watch/fully understand, shows).
  14. OHHHH fps

    Nope, not always the case. Especially since we dont even know whether or not op is even using the dedicated graphics and not intel HD xD. If they are using dedicated graphics, we dont know whether or not they have anti aliasing mode globally set to override. Which is why the point still applies. And again, you never watched the vids to know what I was talking about from the get go, even up to now. But you've managed to come with a rebut saying what I claim doesn't matter or is besides the point, when all you've done from the get go was beside the point to begin with. Lool nice exit strategy mate. Cheers
