I myself have tried these drivers. and i do agree that gameplay does seem a wee bit smoother. even at lower framerates. However, I have also notice that my framrates have droped pretty decently. Anywehre from 2-10fps depending on where I am. I used to get low-mid 30's in lions arch. I am now sitting at low-mid 20's. It might be becasue of the fact that I have an older card and the driver is meant to support the newer generations of cards better. But i personally am debating going back to 301.23 just because that driver seemed to give me the most balance between smooth gameplay and fps.

Wowzers, I said that "the gem store was much more in your face than gw1, and that I pretend the chests don't even exist"

Got a pm from a mod saying I was infracted! There was about 20 posts in the thread that were all discussing the chests and rng in general, I think all of them got deleted, only a few posts left in that thread redface.gif
I don't dare post a thing over there on the official forum really anymore, I thought that above statement was well and fine enough, no slamming or hating, just that I don't use it.

I must say, one of the best online games i played. was enjoying rift before this came out. got a question though, i've been hearing a lot about botters and all, are those the people camping at nodes and popping out mining them and suddenly disappear? how are they doing that anyway o.o always curious ... I mean the disappearing part,

After playing the game for a long time and getting a char or two up to 80, I finally made a warrior... I wish I would have known how fun they were sooner! I actually enjoy playing with most of the weapon combinations, too, so I'll always be able to shake things up tongue.gif Burst damage, ho!

You'll know a bot when you see them. Most of them are groups of 4 or 5 people with very similar names running around in a big loop. They aren't normally camping anything of value, but are running in a highly mob dense area for more exp.

This. They usually have bogus, gibberish names (though not always), and run in groups of as few as 2, and I've seen as many as 8 together. They move around erratically, often just going back and forth, or sometimes in step with each other. Its very easy to spot. The msot common is groups of rangers with juvenile brown bear pets.

I don't dare post a thing over there on the official forum really anymore, I thought that above statement was well and fine enough, no slamming or hating, just that I don't use it.

By saying that you're pretending something doesn't exist you are creating a negative atmosphere and infringing on the enjoyment of other users who may not accept the idea of pretending things don't exist for religious or other purposes. This negative attitude also constitutes hate and you will be banned if you continue this negative attitude towards Guild Wars 2 or ArenaNet in general.

Honestly, if your not in for the circle-jerk your not allowed unless you are able to provide citations and use the most scholarly language possible.

Exaggerating of course; I still love ANet but honestly, they are incredibly overbearing on their forums.

Just figured out my crashes we're OC related. Processor OC to be exact. Anyway, did some tweaking and the crashes seem to be gone.

309.96 drivers did make the game a lot smoother. Also IDK if a patch GW2 released fixed the "Reflections: All" issue since I can now set my reflections to "All" without the lag spike even if I move my mouse really rapidly (used to be quite an issue a month back). There is still room for optimization in GW2 part I think, since a GTX 680 minimum fps should be more than 55 fps in an MMO that's DX9 lol. I think GTX 560Ti's should have the frames a GTX 680 has in this game if it were fully optimized. I'm not complaining though, it's a really awesome game, I love how I don't get the feeling of guilt when I stop playing for a week or a couple days and come back since there's no monthly fee. I get to play other games and play GW2 on the side, usually just finishing the daily achievements. smile.gif

I know... it's disconcerting to me (despite my own predilection for wanting to pretend things do or don't exist for religious and other purposes rolleyes.gif ) how closed seeming their forums have become. Part of that is caused by over-zealous moderators... which are the bane of free discourse everywhere - but at some point there has to have been a directive given from on high.

It reminds me of a certain company producing a hardware dongle for making a hackintosh... at first it was just the posts about how their 'hardware' solution was simply stolen opensource software that got deleted... and eventually it got to the point that anyone posting anything deemed 'negative' (like "the update you pushed out breaks wifi" or "my device can't be detected any longer") would get the ban hammer.

I understand not wanting to let flame wars poison a user base - but the best way of preventing that is by meeting conflict head-on and being straightforward about it. Not simply silencing any opposing viewpoints. redface.gif
