Partial patch notes from yesterday:
My personal "It's a mistake" notes in bold.
more keys if anyone wants them for this last week of play. I can't believe its going to be released in less than 2 weeks..lol
My two big questions:
Is it as laggy as PS1 was?
Are there hitboxes? Or does it still take 2 full clips of ammo to the face to kill a player?
5 more on the pile.
Hitboxes are fine and lag isn't an issue for me. Does appear there may be a clientside bug that allows certain people to "jerk" sideways quickly, but its very rare to run into (I suspect it's an exploit)
How is it, i have had a beta invite for awhile but have not tried it out still.
Is the beta up all the time?
Beta is up 24/7 now until the 16th, when it ends. I believe the game is outstanding - but it's best when you get in an organized platoon.
so there are hitboxes? a leg shot and a head shot are not the same?
Absolutely not the same. Headshots can and often do 1- or 2-shot people. Body shots, depending on the weapon, can easily absorb an entire clip or more. You even get bonus XP for headshot kills.
Even Planetside 1 had multiple hitboxes.
Not sure if it's placebo, but starting to really feel the performance improvements now. Lab fights are much more tolerable on my Phenom II X4 940/ 6850 CF setup (created a custom profile, AFR-friendly, for the time being).
You guys organizing a clan or group for this? Game looks sweet
It would be fun to have an AT outfit, though that means we'd have to agree on one faction.
I personally have no problem being a Barney, Smurf, or Elmo.
Really? What is this a Treehouse FPS?
finally started playing this. it's fun but i can't rebind my keys. looks like it's a bug that's affecting other users.
edit: forgot to mention this is on steam now. unlocks in 6 days
Playing the beta... has potential, but seems like a long learning curve... then again, i've never played a MMO
and i cant bind keys either
hit boxes are terrible when people are moving. net code could use some work too. is there a console for this game?
Well, we could always have three separate outfits.
Haven't needed to rebind since my keys were set from many patches ago, so can't comment on that aspect.
Steam, eh? WTG. Great times ahead.
MMO experience is irrelevant in this game, for the most part. Each continent plays like a huge BF match, whereby one simply gets points for doing stuff. Rack up enough points, "purchase" sidegrades/ new weapons, rinse, repeat.
Moogoo: Unless I'm experiencing major packet loss, I haven't had any issues with the hitboxes. Are you referring to the "ADADADA" strafing during close range combat? Are you leading all of your shots (including accounting for gravity), considering the guns actually have bullet trajectory and aren't hitscan?
No console, AFAIK.
Those names have been around since PS1.
i do lead my shots. sometimes you'll shoot someone nothing happens for a second and then they die. people disappear for half a second at long range at times while running. (not talking about cloaking). It's like someone that's warping around like in cs.
i hate how there will be guys driving around in apcs and they'll drive right past you when there's 11 slots empty. When can i start driving vehicles around?
From the beginning? You only need resources to obtain vehicles, no skills/certs needed. The ATV is super cheap.
oh nice, i'm assuming I just have to earn credits and buy a vehicle like in tribes from a station?
Liberators have WAY too much armor. Period. Either that or they need to unnerf ground AA.
Something to be said when 3 Burster MAXes and a couple of heavies with AA rockets can go all out on a Liberator and it can still get out alive.
Yes. You'll passively earn resource points depending on how much territory your faction control on the continent. Then just go up to a station (they'll have a hologram of your MBT, air vehicle, galaxy ,etc) to purchase.
Got some quick questions for you guys.
1) Just built a new PC but I'm not sure if it will handle this game, and after playing the first one on a Dell Dimension 2100 I know how bad that can be with this game in big battles. Here are my basics:
2) Are any of those codes above still good?
3) When is this game going to release?
I loved the first one whenever I could get it to not stutter on my crappy old PC so I expect this should be a good game as well.
If I'm correct, the 640 looks to be a slight upgrade over a GTX460? I run the game fine on mostly high settings, but my GPU is definitely fully cranked at all times in game.
The game releases on the 20th.
edit: I was wrong. The 640 looks like it actually performs worse than my 460. So you'll probably need to play @ 1680x1050 with some more settings at medium than I do to keep a playable FPS. It'll work, just not with all the eye candy. If I were you I'd think about returning that card and getting something for another $20-30 that will give you better results.
