Don't ruin it for us mere humans k. tongue.gif

Seriously though the game came out less than 5 minutes ago that's not healthy, should probably see somebody about that. Maybe an MRI.

Being good at combat helps, saves you on oils and food items. Can end up spending way too much coin if you get knocked around every fight so that frees up coin for parts in the story that require it (they do come along at level 12+).

Level up Axii so you can avoid quite more than a handful of run'n'grab errands or avoid lengthy encounters altogether.

I'm basically testing how fast it can be ran for myself, I know the devs said 25 hours for them, didn't catch the difficulty but I still think I'm barely scratching the surface. I can't even use the Feline Crossbow and I crafted it when I was ~18ish when you first acquire the diagram. Believe the level req for it is 29 which I find really weird.

What does Axii level up do? And can you use it on traders to get better prices?

I been trying to get 60fps while maintaining ultra textures fx etc.. After looking thru Nvidia tweak guide all I did was turn Foliage Visibility to medium and it's locked at 60fps at a huge cost though I mean it's foresty game but I preffer solid frame rate atleast until I upgrade my gpu

This guide is awesome Nvidia really goes above and beyond for their customers

Yeah the guide is good. A lot of the maximum presets they show you there will bring the game to it's knees though lol

Its a bi product since they need to set the optimize setting via gfe.
They only do the guide for games with nvidia tech but technically they can do it for all games on gfe optimize list.

But normally i find for stock clocksi go one step down on gfe optimize setting. They hit avg of 40+ with min30s to max 60s. Prefer min to be 40.

But really this game looks awesome even on a 970m.
Nvidia gfe has multi profile for mobile gpu for battery boost powersaving optimization.

Why would anyone lower textures? Textures in no game affects performance unless exceeding the VRAM.
Also this game on "ultra" doesnt even go beyond 2.2
My average VRAM usage is around 1.5

Hopefully they'll release some kind of patch soon.

Tonight was better. I have found that if you save manually that it doesnt crash in inventory. I am way behind some of the dope fiends. Almost a level 5 after clearing White orchard which is an absolute must. Do not waste time skipping forward. Had two crashes today. Clearly driver issues.

I love this game it sets a new high bar. I am finicky as I get older. I jumped on GTA 5 and thought that I would lock on only to be indifferent. This game has me hooked!!
