    So no one has started one of these for this game so im going to. maybe someone could whip up a nice graphic or something. this club will be for players, tweaks, news, update/patch info, possibly creating a tpu server, AND submitting ideas for possible fixes/expansions via patch.


    Please list your in-game name and clan tag

    Tweaks:

    Two diofferent versions of each tweak (i think you have to do both)
    disable fps cap and remove mouse lag:
    1) close the game

    2) go to ..\My Documents\My Games\HOMEFRONT\GCGame\Config

    3) open GCEngine.ini

    4) find and edit:

    Quote:
    bSmoothFrameRate=false
    Quote:
    UseVsync=false
    Quote:
    UseFPSSmoothing=false

    5) save and close GCEngine.ini

    6) open GCInput.ini

    7) find and edit:

    Quote:
    bEnableMouseSmoothing=false
    save and close GCInput.ini

    9) load the game, click options, click system, check and uncheck v sync, click apply (this forces the game to read the updated configs)


    turn off start movies:
    1) close the game

    2) go to ..\My Documents\My Games\HOMEFRONT\GCGame\Config

    3) open GCEngine.ini

    4) find and edit:

    Quote:
    bShouldStopMovieAtEndOfLoadMap=true
    ;+StartupMovies=LegalScreen_PC
    ;+StartupMovies=THQ
    ;+StartupMovies=ThreeLogos
    ;+StartupMovies=DE_Logo
    ;+StartupMovies=NVidia
    ;+StartupMovies=HomeIsLogo
    5) save and close GCEngine.ini
    that's it!

    if any of the above steps don't work for you, i suggest you start clean by deleting the auto-generated user configs and editing the master default configs. here's how:
    delete user configs:
    1) close the game

    2) go to ..\My Documents\My Games\HOMEFRONT\GCGame\Config

    3) delete GCEngine.ini and GCInput.ini (WARNING: this will erase all of your current Homefront settings)

    disable fps cap and remove mouse lag:
    1) close the game

    2) go to ..\Steam\steamapps\common\homefront\Engine\Config

    3) open BaseEngine.ini

    4) find and edit:


    bSmoothFrameRate=false

    UseVsync=false

    UseFPSSmoothing=false

    5) save and close BaseEngine.ini

    6) open BaseInput.ini

    7) find and edit:


    bEnableMouseSmoothing=false
    save and close BaseInput.ini

    9) load the game, click options, click system, check and uncheck v sync, click apply

    turn off start movies:

    1) close the game

    2) go to ..\Steam\steamapps\common\homefront\GCGame\Config

    3) open DefaultEngine.ini

    4) find and edit:


    bShouldStopMovieAtEndOfLoadMap=true
    ;+StartupMovies=LegalScreen_PC
    ;+StartupMovies=THQ
    ;+StartupMovies=ThreeLogos
    ;+StartupMovies=DE_Logo
    ;+StartupMovies=NVidia
    ;+StartupMovies=HomeIsLogo "

    Patch/update/DLC info:
    patch 1.0.3 released!
    Digital Extremes and KAOS are happy to announce our first major update for the PC version of the game. This patch will update the client to version 1.0.3 and is currently undergoing internal testing and is scheduled for release early next week! The complete list of changes can be found below in the story.

    FEATURES

    NEW FEATURE – DEMO URL
    - A DemoURL can now be specified in the server playlist, this is used to indicate the location of stored demo files to user’s in-game (see the multiplayer options screen). A good practice for server admins would be to share the demo folder via FTP, this would allow users to grab demos of games they starred in, and also (very importantly!) allow users and anti-cheat authorities to download evidence for cheat reporting. Incidentally, it is now possible to dump all users unique steamID's from both in-game, and in-demos to the console or text file (this will make reporting abusive players and enforcing bans incredibly easy).

    Improved Squad Based Gameplay
    - Players will now re-spawn at a point nearest to the closest member of their squad.
    - Squad mates will now be colored blue on the mini-map and full-screen maps.

    GAME BALANCE
    - RPG's now deal additional damage to HMMWV's
    - Lowered m200 and m110 sniper rifle damages. The only 1 shot possible is now headshots.
    - Flak jacket now has a lower BP cost, and a slight effectiveness buff.
    - Diablo damage adjusted
    - Weapon is taken out of ADS and accuracy decreases when jumping.


    OPTIMIZATIONS & FIXES
    - The Rhino drones weapon attachment was not being properly moved with the Rhino drone on dedicated servers, causing the rockets to fire incorrectly. This is now fixed.
    - We have added some animation optimizations for large player games.
    - Several UI related improvements were added for large player games .
    - Fixed scaling text zooming on Battle Commander when opening up the battle chat or squad UI.
    - Switched the buttons around on the load out rename confirmation dialog to better abide by conventions.
    - Improved SLI/CrossFireX support.
    - A few reported issues with WinXP 64 bit edition have been addressed.
    - Improved menu navigation with analogue controls.

    General Improvements
    - User feedback for kicks and bans has been improved.
    - The intermission lobby now displays clan tags.
    - Text chat is now possible in the kill cam, spawn selection, and intermission lobby screens.

    New Settings & Control Options
    - EnableD3D10/11 is now accessible via the system settings menu.
    - Mouse acceleration is now accessible via the controls menu.
    - Mouse smoothing is now accessible via the controls menu.

    I have faith that the gameplay is only going to get better (maybe thats because i know things some dont) I'm just looking to secure future PC support for future games, and things like this crysis 2 BS wont happen ;)

    I think it's a disgrace how they reease a game with a 4 hour long SP campaign. Then say they will be releasing DLC to continue the story! :mad:

    well personally I buy FPS for their multiplayer, they stated before launch the multiplayer will be this games driving force, at least they didnt hype it like crysis2 was hyped and then let people down. instead of non helpful comments maybe ideas/suggestions would help a lot more (no offense). at least they are supporting it after launch with added features. everyone always bitches when fps have DLc's but mmorg's dont get bitched about like that they get praised when good DLC's are released. I agree that the SP is to short, but I think they did so to concentrate more on MP and hear more community support in what the people want, I have linked one of the game dev.'s to this site in hopes to get them more suggestions/feedback.

    Well I got the game as a gift but Unfortunately I can't play it because right now my computer is KIA, and I don't see myself getting the funds for a new build anytime soon because of shitty ass mud season. But anyways good luck with the Club :)

    I enjoy MP aswell as SP but I don't think 4 hours worth of campaign is good enough. Considering they have purposely left bits out so they can sell it to us at a later date. TBH, the MP isn't that great either :(

    hey m8 what happened to your computer?? i have some spare parts laying around if i have whatever you need i'dd just send it to you no problem. let me know pm me or something

    and yes imho this game's multi-player is better then crysis 2's the only thing crysis has on it is invisibility.



    Now a couple things I was told more then likely wont be added (sad i know). 1: more destructible environments I was told bullet effects may get better but buildings trees etc wont. 2: engineer class/abilities (i have been really pushing this one) its not definitely a no but more than likely not.

    Also I would like to make it clear im asking for suggestions to give to the guy I know who works at kaos, i have never stated that anything will definitely happen but I know kaos is getting the suggestions and does plan on fixing what they can and really supporting the game post launch EVEN THOUGH the sales for the PC version were very low and most companies would not bother.

    it really doesnt have to be only PC players. the game is kind of ported for PC but not really there are quite a bit of PC only features. I think the game is best using a 360 controller on the PC then you get the best of both worlds.

    Does no body care about the 4 hrs of single player game play? If you figure it, that would be getting charged $12.50 an hour for entertainment. That is high imo. I know that there's multi player but if they took shortcuts on the single player what kind did they take on the multi?

    Stop for a second and think about that one. You just said that THIS FPS plays better with a 360 controller.


    Um, that'd be a world's first in FPS...:laugh:

    First rule of Homefront club is that you don't speak of Homefront club. lulz. :laugh:
