Yeah, I went with Dxtory even though Fraps is the default for most people. I really liked it. Once you set it up, get a lossless codec, and figure out how big/small you want to record it really is a nice program and didn’t lag me at all.
ShadowPlay seems pretty darn good and easily convenient. Since I have the GeForce Experience program installed anyhow, ShadowPlay is there so I might as well use it.
In the end it’s a preference thing. I like that Dxtory is a lot more configurable. I also like that it spits out the framerate of your game and recording so you don’t have to guess if you are lagging if there is a blip or something. But the ShadowPlay icon is the opposite. It is small and minimalist. I sort of like that .
I guess as I say it all out loud I think Dxtory (and Fraps) are better programs, but ShadowPlay is a darn good one and for free so it sort of wins on the simple and budget side.
I finally got Battlefield 4 to play in full screen mode. For whatever reason I had to play windowed and then maximize. After the major patch and/or video driver update I was able to play borderless. Last night I shut every background program though and it worked. I had tried that before as well and it didn’t work, but that was early on.
So phew, stupid stuff finally comes to an end.
That also allows me to use ShadowPlay to record now (because it doesn’t work if not in fullscreen mode). So I tried it out last night on medium quality. I like how it works, and how it actually does a shadow if you aren’t recording but then something cool happens you can grab that footage.
I’m not sure I like the simple settings over Dxtory, but I also like the fact that it is pretty simple and just does it’s thing. It also compresses video better, but that may be the mp4 vs avi formatting.
There was a little lag, but not major and not constant. So I think this will work for me. Besides, I have too much installed on my comp so to ditch Dxtory will be a positive thing.
Here is a test video I ran. I actually uploaded it to share with my buddy because it actually looked like I knew what I was doing instead of just dying over and over.
Oh, and one of my favorite things is the guy who kills me in the beginning of the clip is the same guy that kills me at the end. It’s like bookends.
No, meaning now. I will wait a year or two until I take the plunge.
I have my eye on the PS4 because I like Sony exclusives, but the XBone is very intriguing tech. So the time will also help me decide between the two.
Content always comes later, same for any other hardware launch.
Besides, “Good” content isn’t being held back by the X360/PS3 gen. So it shouldn’t be held against the current gen.
But talking with people I know who own them, they are happy. Hearing how the XBone instantly does everything with no lag is really cool. Yeah, I know they said it was like that and demoed it, but hearing it word of mouth is refreshing.
Hearing about how Forza doesn’t use AI, but rather learns how you play then makes a virtual you to be the AI for other players is pretty awesome. Of course, people play like jerks so there is a bunch more ramming than AI would ever do.
Little things like that out the gate show me that the new tech isn’t just shiny eye candy. There is substance under there. Granted, I haven’t bought either yet and don’t plan too, but I can’t knock people who do.
It gets easier as you go on. You upgrade your pack so you can carry more stuff. But in the end you find guns that YOU like and work with that. There are basically just a couple classes of guns (i.e. sniper, shotgun, assault rifle, handgun) and then there are a couple classes of elements (i.e. fire, electricity, corrosive, etc…) so you find a gun that you like and run with it. But you end up swapping out guns frequently because you level up and need better guns. Guns are meant to be disposable, except the really good and rare ones people find. Then you keep those.
You are also not connecting all the dots.
This is one particular article. There are other news stories out there more along the lines you are discussing.
I think there should be a best marketing category. Either big picture campaign, or a specific ad. And note, this is marketing. It has nothing to do with the quality of the end product or how it launched.
There should definitely be a worst launch category like others have said (BF4, SimCity, etc…)
How about a best and/or worst sequel?
Best use of new technology should be a category too (Wuu pad, smart glass/tablet, kinect, whatever)
First thought in my mind is to take the coffee table, prop it up at an angle on a chair, then sit on the batmobile on said chair, launching those toy cars down the ramp and further onto the coffee table.
Yeah, you probably shouldn’t let me play with your kids.
Morning all. Sitting in my car waiting to warm it up and defrost it. Not that its super cold like some areas, but still, ice covering the car I should probably be inside. Too bad I need to leave.
I’m off for the day like most weekends but am looking forward to some BF4 later. I received the game with mediocre response, but it has grown on me. And I adore China Rising.
Now if I can get the stupid thing to run full-screen instead of windowed all will be right in the world.
I pretty much never planned on getting one myself but considered getting it for the family when I saw the Zelda bundle. But other than a few 1st party games there is nothing I know of that I/we would play. Insight of what is good helps us all. Then maybe people will stop ragging on the Wuu. Yeah right.
Yeah, you would have had to play the campaign and remember the guy playing with it.
Then there are a bunch of them scattered around the Wake Island map.
Plot Twist: I don’t actually know the answer to the question. There are 5 or so on Wake Island, plus the one in the campaign. But I could be wrong.
oh, I realize I was unclear.
I was posting another dinosaur toy to play off your Firefly image (which is BF3 for the record). Then while doing it I thought I’d throw the trivia question out there. It didn’t translate into good communication.
I’m going to screen shot a borked image and then start posting that.
I will do it so much you will finally break and say, I need to know what they all are! Then you will refresh only to find that they are literally borked images.
Trivia: How many of these were in the game?
No, I’m not. You jump.
haha sure. “I can’t jump! I can’t jump!”
Yeah, the joke doesn’t carry over as much when I play BF4 because I’m on PC.
But that is actually where my name came from. I thought about what describes my skill level…oh, of course!
Yeah, I was shocked. Who would have thought that he would actually kill me. I kid, I suck pretty bad.
But stuff like that has happened to me before. Ran into my wife playing Uncharted 2 once. Opposite teams so I killed her over and over just to make her mad.
I can always mail you a few.
I actually ran into him on a random BF4 server over the weekend. He killed me then disarmed my Mcom.
Yeah, they are both dead now. These are their last moments of life.
I have gotten Brown Recluses in my yard before too. That was rare though, and before I cut down all my trees.
Now I basically get Black Widows and Tree/House Spiders.
The far off province of Los Angeles.
I’m not in some crazy rural area or anything. It’s the suburbs.
I’m only a few miles away from Luda and Lulz.
So we haven’t had spiders around here in a while.
This is the
guy gal I saw on my gas main when taking out the trash.
Note that she likes to be white with dark brown highlights on her joints. Nice variation.
So I went to go get something to kill her with and this is the guy I found next to said tool of destruction. I have no idea what the heck this guy is. I’ve never seen him before. So I need to do some research to find out what the heck is living in my garage and yard. I didn’t get a closer picture because he was jittery and I was afraid he would run or attack.
Yep. Rolls out tomorrow according to this post.
-Fixed the “one-hit kill” bug where bullets were sometimes applying their damage multiple times to a character. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed.
-Fixed a crash that could occur when having a very large amounts of Friends
-Enabled audio in PS4 video captures
This is the tricky part of being a medic in BF4.
In BF3 I frequently would run with the M320 as my other accessory. So I could revive somebody if needed, and blow people up if needed (and yes, I use to take on tanks with a M320 and win…occasionally).
In BF4 you need to charge your defibs a loooong time for it to have a decent impact on the health. Even then it is far from full. That is why people rev you fast, then throw a med pack at you to finish you off.
Takes the 320 aspect out of it though, so these days I’m running 320 and med kit. But I love bringing people back, especially since my game of choice is Rush. If you have a couple medics on the attacking side it makes a world of difference.
