    i wonder if ... like that... sooo people will maybe eventually on a high random chance of probability... think that a Recluse doesnt have heal skills (ofc i can use stimpack but im too focused on poisoning things to drop some packs...)

    I get on dis mourning to get my 75k beta crystite out of the printer. I go buy my shiny new lgv. I ride for 30 seconds and the game freezes. I tried to get back on but can not for more than 30 seconds, in 2-3 attempts. I have to find a fix for this.

    Damn man you have a lot of problems with the game. Have you tried turning settings down?


    The one thing I noticed with bikes is that it temporarily freezes every now and then as it caches the area I'm driving into. It could be related.

    I have the settings down on low. I did turn up view distance as I like high view distance. I'll turn that down. I think I will re install the game again too. I have a overclocked 2500k and 7970 with 8gb ram. I should be able to throw anything at it. Why do I always play beta games... :ohwell: :rolleyes:

    Have you tried disabling Crossfire in that 7970? Overclocked CPU can also cause a lot of crashes.

    It rarely crashes on me and I'm using all default settings.

    There is no crossfire. Single gpu. Dont even have the option to disable crossfire in the control panel.

    Overclocked cpu can cause crashes if not stable. Very stable overclock. WCG has no history of problems, prime 95 passed, and hundreds of game hours in more demanding cpu oriented games than firefall. Could be it but I highly doubt it.

    Thanks for the thought. I now got my lgv and don't need to farm so much so fast. I don't have anything I really want particularly soon. The lgv just had a deadline.

    Firefall might be more multithreaded than most other games. It's one of the rare games I have to kill BOINC to play.

    Right now I have to kill everything just to get it to run without freezing. That is everything but firefall and antivirus. I even kill explorer.


    Enough of my complaining and problems etc. Do we know of anything coming with the open beta besides open beta?

    indeed i run with 99% on all 4 core of my 955BE and 89-95% of my 7950 (i assume it runs on the 4 thread since when Firefall dont run im at 0-10% core 0% gpu )

    I was testing this today. I get 99% usage on core 0, and the rest range from 0%-20%.


    I now have 10 pilot tokens. I can get a new battle suite. I don't know which. I kinda like the idea of the bastion for solo thumping. Out of all the battle suites I have tried so far, I like the accord biotech. I really like the stock bioneedler and its poison traits. Taking what I like from the accord biotech, I might really like the recluse. The dragonfly is not a bad option either. Its healing piller ability is really really strong I hear. Maybe I should go for something like the mammoth for sheer dps.

    For my problem with firefall freezing, it won't go away. I have now reinstalled twice. I have set the game settings to the lowest of the lowest. I removed all overclocks. I have shut down every program/service I can. The devs supposedly know what the problem is and are working on a fix.

    On wednesday the third

    I added Crash Course -> Best Battleframes section to the OP earlier today. In my opinion, everyone should have a Bastion for thumping, tornadoes (as long as you can get them in a good place, they'll shoot and shoot and shoot, except the core), and invasions (turrets do a good job even when it is laggy as hell).

    Recluse is mostly good for killing groups of enemies.

    Mammoth's weakness is groups of smaller enemies and strength is singular powerful enemies (e.g. terrorclaw, bandit raider, Chosen Seigebreaker, Meld Portals dropped by snipers and shock troopers)

    I haven't heard much about the Dragonfly.


    In my experience, any programs that do third party overlays in games can cause havoc. For example, MSI Afterburner. Kill them with fire (I mean literally: in some cases, the only way to make it completely stop was to reinstall Windows).

    Troll core is stuck in rock. We can't hurt it. I and the firecat guy both have AOE damage that could not get at it too. Sadface.

    Interesting thing about the 'closed beta' is that each account got five keys as invitations to other people. You could, in theory, give out the five keys to alternate accounts of your own in turn spawning an exponential amount of accounts - as long as you could be bothered to make them.
    Also, they sold for about $1 thus anyone who didn't get an invite, was easily able to buy their way in.
    I'd be really curious to see what kind of population spike we had and will have during these open beta periods, because I reckon it's not as high as we'd suspect - given that so many people had easy access to the 'closed' beta to begin with.


    Fortunately the game is better now, the increasing amount of ARES missions is welcome and the crafting system finally feels like it has a home.
    What concerns me is the tiresome effort of traveling back and forth across (a small portion of the map none the less) areas, in order to do missions because you are desperate for Crystite - which in a cruel twist of irony - is now something you need to advance practically every craft.
    I can't imagine how awful traveling will be when they finally open up the map /content.

    'Open' beta broke things today, might be related. We can't enter portals either.
