Re: Looking at getting a new Monitor

That looks like a good monitor Spriggs ! Especially the high refresh-rate/adaptive-sync stuff. Have you tried it before? I'd honestly say out of anything I've ever upgraded on my setup, the switch from 60 to 144Hz was the most impactful. Everything is so smooth, even just dragging windows around on ...

Re: DirectX 12 on Sandstorm - potential FPS increase

After trying this for a few rounds tonight, unfortunately I had some issues. At first everything was fine, but when the map changed parts of the HUD started glitching - the ammo counter and tactical minimap became distorted, so did compass indicators. Eventually I started seeing weird texture bugs t...

DirectX 12 on Sandstorm - potential FPS increase

I saw this in the Steam guides. Set the launch option "-dx12" for Sandstorm in Steam. It allows you to use DirectX 12 if your graphics hardware supports it. I got a fairly substantial FPS increase of around 25-30%! At first there was some more stuttering than usual, but this went away after a minute...

Re: Spice it up again

Do agree the game has been feeling a bit stale recently. Haven't had as much motivation to jump on, compounded by the fact that other people don't seem to have either! I've been enjoying Hardcore mode somewhat, it's a nice change of pace both figuratively and literally... Bots are less likely to sur...

Re: Insight, tips, tricks. No chat plz.

As we all know, the last update brought with it quite a few bugs - e.g. unable to pick a class, invisible bots, floating magazines etc. All of these are usually fixed if leave and re-join the server. It takes time and can potentially lose your server slot too which is annoying. A faster way to do it...

Re: Nightvision

Do agree, NVG point shooting is a lot of fun combined with an IR or regular laser. The IR option gives you a nice line indicating exactly where you are pointing to your team and is a bit easier to follow. The regular laser gives you a GTAV-style "dot" in the middle of your screen tho, makes aiming v...

Re: Switch between config presets

When NWI mentioned dropping Mac/Linux support they meant for the game client, not the server. Insurgency Source was playable on both and they had originally pledged to renew that for Sandstorm, but eventually decided it was too much development to please a fairly small fraction of the playerbase. Sp...
