    2004 is an exaggeration on the textures. As in they are more like 2000. They are HORRIBLE. That is one of the things that turns me off about the game, how it looks. Arma 2 for being a 3 year old engine looks pretty good at times, even though DayZ is unoptimized (fixed by the standalone apparently).

    I agree, I only wish games like skyrim would give you the ability to increase that.

    Visually the game is not stunning by any means but for the type of game it is I find the graphics more than good enough. Sure if I stop to get a close look at textures I'm left feeling disappointed but I'm not one of 'those' guys. I'm running around collecting loot and getting killed when I'm not killing others myself. I don't spend much time looking at textures up close. Thats how you get shot!



    The patch is good news but if I can't play on the servers without getting booted back out then it does me no good. I look forward to playing tonight...i hope.

    I'm wondering if the game is upscaling 1080p to 1440p for me. When I go to add a clip to a gun, there are some things kind of off screen. The game also looks "muddy" but not sure if that's the way it is or if it just doesn't (really) support higher resolutions.

    Might be an ATI driver problem. Looks fine on my screen.

    That's not helpful whatsoever. Please go away, lest I make you troll.

    *Figured it out for myself using a smaller monitor... Not muddy and the attachment screen is viewable.

    Ah. Well I was just saying it doesn't look muddy on mine. You are so sensitive sometimes. I legitimately thought it might be a driver issue.

    Tell me... How did you think this? Regardless, I can never take you seriously on this forum. Until I see a screenshot or some kind of proof, I find it highly unlikely you have even played this game. Your years of trolling have surely paid off.

    Because I know you like to play with driver settings. When I used to mess with mine it would do funky things like what you said. Weird proportions and what not.

    I am not sure that Crystal River, FL is even exists, and am seriously having doubts that he is a real mail man.

    Not accurate. I do not play with driver settings. No idea why you would think that.

    The game does not look 'muddy' to me and all actions are performed on screen. The graphics are pretty clean just the textures aren't that great. But for the most part everything looks good but dated.

    It needs DX11. In fact more games need DX11.

    Well I guess I won't be playing this game any longer. Last saturday after that hacker shut down the servers I was perma banned. No reason given but I was sitting on a hill in the safe zone overlooking Compos. I was just sitting right at the edge of the safe zone but in it using my Binochs. My plan was to watch for someone exiting the city and heading to the safe zone to unload their loot. I was going to ambush them by immediately stepping out of the safe sone and shooting them. So I'm sitting there for 1.5 hours and no joy when I see a dude running down the road next to me in the safe zone. He looks at me then runs back the way he came, comes up the hill behind me and just stares at me. I turned away from and and brought my binochs back up. Then my game disconnected. When i tried to sign back in it stated that I was perma banned.

    I honestly don't know why but I think its one of two things; either the hacker that shut down their servers earlier caused this somehow or the person watching me was a dev or admin and thought I was hacking by sitting in safe zone and shooting from it. BUT thats impossible but I guess hackers can do it from what I have read.

    Anyway...I'm bummed out but since they posted that no bans will ever be reversed again I figure why even bother to complain. I'll just move on to another game.

    If you were wrongfully banned, you need to at least try to fight back. first I would send an email to the support, letting them know that you understand that no bans are lifted, but that this particular ban is unsubstantiated.

    This is the wrongest of the wrong, you paid good money for this game.

    For pulling a douche bag move such as using a the edge of the safe zone to scout people out for death then you should be perm banned from the internet.

    Well I might jump on their forums and see how their support ticket works. Ya never know!


    Let me just packup and head out of the web...:laugh:

    I didn't say what i was doing is nice. It's every man for himself and if the game is going to set a safe zone right next to a major city then why not take advantage? I've seen hundreds of people doing just that and I've been killed by people using the same tactics as I'm bringing in a fat haul.

    Sitting in the safe zone doesn't protect me from the people I attack anyway. I have to step out of the safe zone to attack them and they have a shot at killing me. I sit in it for one really good reason; so I can sit in one spot and have no fear of someone shooting me while I watch the city. Once someone exits the city I exit the safe zone and start B-lining to them. At this point I sometimes get the drop on them and sometimes not.
