    Apart from sneaking, how would the game be affected if I turned off (or lowered) most of the shadows settings (the ones mentionned by Crazyeyesreaper earlier...)

    ???

    i tried medium shadows, and everything looked really, really well lit.

    unfortunately the graphics realism really requires the shadows to be turned up.

    arrrr....

    I just went ahead and wrote a complaint to Bethesda about the poor optimization, not that I think they'll care that much, but just that I figure someone has to say something...

    Here's the link if you wanna express your opinion to them about the "poor optimization" in your own words:

    yea i already did that. anything you complain about will not reach the design team so its rather worthless, altho i did troll 3 Tiers of there techsupport for my own amusement made them back peddle and unable to answer questions was pretty hilarious. I know I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for the LAA fix supposedly coming in the next patch but it seems to line up pretty well ;) since thats the main focus of my trolling them.

    Maybe if every pc gamer sent them a message telling them to and GPU shadows and multicore support they'll do it. :laugh:


    In all seriousness though it would benefit the consoles to right?

    nope i called them up they have my phone number,

    Tier 2 called me back i let them have it just as i let Tier 1 have it then Tier 3 support messaged me via Email

    i didnt bash them i just trolled there tech support with superior knowledge of there own products and even listed half the questions they would ask me before they asked, its why i got to tier 2 and tier 3 in the first place :roll:

    For some reason im really good at being a mooch

    Free TT 1050w Tough power grand PSU
    $30 for a P67 mobo
    2 gpus with a free ssd from customer service.
    half my steam games were free...

    and apparently im also EXTREMELY good at being a complete and utter pain in the ass,

    I simply stated to all 3 techs that my college background with 8 years of working with there game engine that i have far more knowledge then anyone in there tech department I also explained how easy LAA patch was, and that there DRM choice broke it for no real reason, I also mentioned that there practices hurt the regular consumer not the pirate whom dosent need to give up driver optimizations for stability, I then linked them to every single post i could find on the internet that spelled out there stupidity when it comes to LAA, and then around week later we get an annoucement that a future patch will have LAA by default overall its pretty hilarious i had NO impact in there decision but the timing was pretty good haha.

    as for the food argument I KNOW the people whom make my food personally i can order a custom meal with just a simple name and have it ready the way i want momentarily, with proper price etc, The people in my region are poor so. most work in resturants / fast food joints so not a big deal :roll:

    Whatever; I think the LAA patch should be named after you. I mean officially!

    Lol @ photo!

    Well, the game's a really good one. The only drawback (and I mentioned this somewhere in this forum before November) was that they decided on the awesomely cool date of 11-11-11. Meaning that no matter what happened the game had to be released on that date at all costs. And fixes would follow later.

    Stalker devs + Bethesda devs ? ( Also the people who make the Atmosphere mod)

    I excite myself at the very thought !

    Never will happen though : [

    Probably possible to build a traditional RPG using the xray engine mind you.

    Just Skyrim4GB. :)

    Ultra settings with maxed AA/AF. My little 470 can handle bout 60 fps, sometimes the fog kicks it's ass.

    But it's my 970 thats really handling business. I'll try to snap a screen cap of task manager, that'll be fun. :)

    we discussed this at my work last night, about how no ones trolled us for a while.


    we think they learned their lessons.
