With SSD only way I'm aware of is some third party tools. eBoostr (not free) or that Intel cache program (on some higher end Z series chip set boards if I remember correct) - although Intel's solution was a bit limited as it allowed you to put SSD as cache for only C: disk. The windows built in readyboost does it with with USB flash drives and pretty decent, however, I'm not aware of any possibility of getting it to work properly with SSD in internal SATA.

Cache size above ~32 GB is said to drop off in effectivity relatively fast although I suspect that if you are doing very varied stuff then something like up to 64 GB might make sense.

I should add that the flash cache stuff works pretty decent. It's not as good as having thing on SSD but I would say that you can get approx 80% of the performance of SSD with proper caching algorithm by having SSD cache for a larger mechanical drive. Although with SSD sizes above 120 GB I would just use it already as separate SSD drive instead of cache - if you have multiple HDD's then perhaps create about 24 .. 32 GB cache on it as well if you have stuff on HDD's that benefits from high random read times (just make sure that it do not cache files larger than ~ 20 MB as for these SSD is not providing that much benefit than it does for a lot of small files).

I'm using that Intel Smart Response Technology (ssd caching), You can use it to cache any drive installed, doesn't have to be C: I have a old 30gb SSD caching a 1tb game drive, letter E or G or something. Although I think it does have a limit of 64gb drives (or space) that it can use to cache with. I'm not sure how much of a difference it actually makes, but maybe it has some slight benefit.

Here's the guide on how to set it up.

They never went on record saying that a season pass was not coming, it was just unannounced at the time. It was a miss-quote, a certain blog thought they said "no season pass" but it was clarified to be "no season pass at this time."

Also there will be no micro-transactions, as been stated several, several times by Respawn and several of the devs. Here's the quote by Drew McCoy, the producer of Titanfall:
Quote:
“We’re not talking about our plans specifically, but I can say we’re not going to have day-one DLC, and we’re not gonna have microtransactions or anything like that. We want to make sure people understand we’re not going to nickel-and-dime you with microtransactions, and we don’t expect you to buy a game, put it in your console, and the first day get asked to spend more money for more content. What you get on the disc is what you bought, and that’s how we’re going to do it.”

Yes, there will be a season pass, and yes, there will also be free, I repeat FREE DLC, so you will not have to buy the season pass if you don't want to. I've been ranting all over Twitter at all of the false reports and assumptions people have been making, and it's kind of getting me a bit angry.

EA is only doing the publishing.

Microsoft is providing the servers and Azure.

Respawn is managing everything else.

And yes, there will also be dedicated servers. I will repeat myself like a broken record, Titanfall is the least publisher influenced game to currently hit the market and will not have a lot of things some of you have gotten "accustomed" to with Battlefield and Call of Duty. Follow some of the devs on Twitter, like @jonshiring, @VinceZampella, and the main Respawn account, @Respawn. They'll gladly answer some questions for you, or at least direct you to the right person.

The cards are not available for purchase and whoever said that they are, are wrong. You can and will easily obtain them through "kill drops" and completing challenges. I know I probably got around 150+ cards during the beta, so there being a shortage of them is not an issue. Yes, there are rare ones, but they can be obtained multiple times. If they said there are not going to be micro transactions, there are not going to be micro transactions.

EA did not make the game. They are the publisher and the publisher, alone.

Beyond paying to publish the game they will have 0, I repeat 0 customer interaction in regards to the product.

I'd strongly suggest doing research on studio vs. publishers.

So interestingly enough, I'm in beta, did a full search on the AP and this is unconfirmed.

In fact:
Quote:
Titanfall will have a new perk-like feature called Burn Cards; these are similar to perks in other FPS games, but you can only use them once, and once you die, they’re gone. When you have a Burn Card equipped, you get additional XP per kills and it appears in your HUD red.

The burn cards range from passive stat buffs (faster movement) to a new secondary weapon.

MP1st spoke with a Titanfall developer, who talked about what burn cards are:

So, the way they work is you equip yourself a free Burn Card at the beginning of the match, or in a lobby. When you get into a match, you can use up to three throughout the course of match. Every time you use one (you use one at a time), until you die, the effects of that card remain working. So, try to stay alive. If it’s a round-based situation like Last Titan Standing, the Burn Card continues on round after round, etc. until you die or the match ends. It’s a great way to sort of let people be extra powerful for a short period of time without totally unbalancing the game.

Source

And as of 8.5 hours ago from the developers, themselves:
Quote:
"We're going to do paid DLC. We're also going to do free updates," Ok, just like most other games of this nature then. Surely Vince has something to add?

"There are things that we want in the game that we didn't get to ship in the final game. So we'll add private matches and things like that for free. There will be some paid DLC. We're going to do a season pass just because if you buy it up front, it's a deal. We're not going to do microtransactions. You just buy it up front, and you get a better price."

Excellent! No microtransactions. Remember that.

Source

Sooooooo...No microtransactions...Or buying burn cards...period.

Time to get a new SSD then...oh, wait. I don't feel like shelling out $300 for a new game and drive. Can't they figure a way to cut this down in size?

Well its not like there is a real difference between an server and a "game" server so any dedicated server provider can be used to setup a game server provided they can offer appropriate specs. But if we are talking about companies that specialize in game related stuff the you are looking at something like the above mentioned M$ azure servers or

Steam works
XFactorServers
GameServers.com
Nuclear Fallout
DarkStarLLC

There are a lot of provides out there. One of the key differences is locations and business model. If you want just one server in a specific place that can do 200 people at once or do you wan't an complete network of servers that can cater to hundreds of thousands of simultaneous users. That's where the differences become more apparent.

Steam works, azure and their competitors are also a bit different in the sense that they don't just offer world wide servers space but also an frame work for stuff like match making, chat ect.

 48GB is quite a commitment, many people are using 120/250GB SSDs these days.

post #200 of 217
8TB raid here (4x4TB in RAID10). I'll be fine.

I do have 500GB SSD where I put games like GTA and Minecraft. There's still like 420GB of space left on there, maybe I'll throw Titanfall on there:P
