    Also you guys can edit the config to change video options. Its under \Documents\DeadIsland\out\Settings

    Rename the Video.src to .txt and edit away then change back to .src.

    You can even enable Vsync this way!

    The basics yes other things no.

    However, you can enable other things and exceed others as well.

    For instance by editing the configs you can enable EAX it seems as well as AA, higher res shadows and Vsync.

    Here is my Video Config working and looking great.


    !Resolution(i,i)
    !WindowOffset(i,i)
    !Monitor(i) // -1 primary monitor
    !BPP(i)
    !FSAA(i) // Full Screen AntiAliasing, 0 - none, higher is better
    !TexBPP(i)
    !TextureQuality(s) // VeryLow, Low, High
    !Filtering(s) // Bilinear, Trilinear, Anisotropic, AnisotropicTrilinear
    !GammaFloat(f)
    !MaxRefresh(i)
    !Shadows(s) // Low, High
    !ShadowMapSize(i)
    !SpotShadowMapSize(i)
    !Lightmaps()
    !Fullscreen()
    !VSync() // enable vertical sync
    !MaterialQuality(i) // lower is better
    !WaterQuality(i) // lower is better
    !GrassQuality(i) // lower is better
    !FXQuality(i) // higher is better
    !FXFadeLevel(i) // 0-4 (lower is better)
    !EnvQuality(s) // FullDynamic, RareDynamic, Static
    !ShaderPath(i) // 0 - 1.1, 1 - 1.4, 2 - 2.0, 3 - 3.0, 4 - x360, 5 - 4.0, 6 - ps3
    !PostProcess(s) // Simple, Normal
    !DisplayDeviceType(i,f,f,f,f) //device type (LCD TV etc.): 0 - default
    !Curves(s) // curves texure

    Resolution(1920,1080)
    Monitor(0)
    BPP(24)
    FSAA(8)
    TexBPP(32)
    TextureQuality("High")
    Filtering("Anisotropic")
    Fullscreen()
    Shadows("High")
    ShadowMapSize(4096)
    SpotShadowMapSize(4096)
    Lightmaps()
    GammaFloat(1.15)
    MaxRefresh(60)
    MaterialQuality(2)
    FXQuality(3)
    FXFadeLevel(0)
    WaterQuality(2)
    GrassQuality(0)
    EnvQuality("FullDynamic")
    ShaderPath(3)
    VSync()
    DisplayDeviceType(0,0.000000,1.000000,1.000000,1.000000)


    Enables 8xAA, Vsync, 4096 res Shadows (Might work higher haven't tested) and better FXFAdeLevel (whatever that means).

    Haven't tested much more but this really does a great job.

    Well played a bit, but connecting with others is hard, and get some horrible fps randomly, so decided to wait a week or two for a patch. But I did get some good screens.

    I wondered upon a porno shoot, but she didn't seem to interested in our group. (Notice her name, Jenna Jameson spoof)

    Damage models in this game are impressive. Another zombie I kicked to the ground and while he was down I was kicking him in the lower back, it said "BREAK", I'm assuming I broke his spine, and it ripped the skin off his lower back, looked impressive.

    And the games got some good atmosphere, this hallway is pretty creepy.

    Overall the game graphics are pretty good. Not ground breaking, but I liked them.

    Well like I said the game was acting really funky for me, and by holding down Y you can no clip, fly anywhere you want, then hit Y again and drop there, then if in danger, just hit Y and fly away.

    it is fun though MM, and i was prepared for bugs as it's deep silver. however, they are ambitious and make engaging games, so i will continue to buy. i am looking forward to risen 2, as (fyi) these are the original gothic series devs, though the last one they had nothing to do with (thankfully)

    The game is pretty good. I really had to force myself to stop playing last night @ 1:30am, and go to bed.


    Erocker and I palyed for a while last night too. Players just need to be in the same section of the map, and it also seems that if you picked the same character as one of your friends, you will NOT be able to join them.

    I'll be investigating more multiplayer player today. Seems it takes about 30mins for me to get a level, and skillpoints need to be spent wisely!

    The NoClip thing is rather funny...

    Yeah, I wish I had bought Risen when it came out, I bought it when it was on sale last and was extremely impressed with it. I was mildly upset that I never heard of it, I been looking for a RPG like that for a while and I never been able to get into Oblivion.

    The game worked fine for me in single player. But as soon as I shift tabbed to invite it went extremely laggy. So laggy I had to open processes and kill it, then I sat staring at a blank desktop with a Steam chat window open and that was lagging, I would type and hit enter and it would take 30 seconds for me to see it send. 3 friends had the same issue. We all restarted, were having issues getting into the same game, and with lagging (seems shift + tab or alt + tab would cause issues). It finally ran good for me, but then we moved up the hill to the pools and I lagged a lot for a few minutes, that went away as well.

    In the end we just decided to give it a week. I really enjoyed what we did play, in a week hopefully they fix the issues, I think it will be a ton of fun, till then back to revisiting Borderlands.


    I been interested in the Fury tree, have any of you tried that? Seems rather pointless, you get temporarily awesome, but without Fury you would suck. I was assuing since it has less talents in the tree, they are hoping people pick that as their second talent tree.

    And I agree with the no clip, I wasn't interested in using it to cheat at the game. But I was checking if I could die from falling out of the sky. Then I was flying up and hiding in palm trees from my friends and they would keep trying to find me.
