Other than us all being winded after a few minutes, I have to wonder where we would put our bourbon/beer...

Yeah, that is about right, especially being over cucumbered...

I would like to update my previous statements regarding BF 1.  The coolest part of the trailer was 7 Nation Army, not killing someone with an e-tool.  Also I want to see more than the 3 seconds of gameplay in the trailer before making a conclusion about the game (although trenches will suck, and this is the same company that keeps releasing Metro).

This is pretty funny, and yes, I have tasted all of them (and drink a couple regularly).

I'm with Wreck... I run a 500GB C-drive with OS, programs, games, etc. and have the User files on a 2TB d-drive.  I haven't jumped to Win 10 on my desktop where I do most of my gaming, but I have done it on my laptop and I like it better than 8.1.  I may need to fire up BF4 just to see what the FPS difference is.


#6 Re: Just For Laughs » BF4 drinking game » Fri, Apr 10, 2015 5:31 pm

I like the idea.  The only problem is I just checked and at best I have 2 bottles of liquor and 2 growlers of beer.  That is not going to be enough to last a single night if I take a drink every time Current yells "Bullshit!"   :-P

Yeah, looks like the CPU is the bottleneck.  When I bought the 8150, I remember wondering if I should have gotten the 8350 instead.  I guess this answers that question.

The GPU clock stayed pretty consistent at over 1000 mHz.  Not sure where VRAM is on the dial/screen.  I was happy to find the stuff that is obvious.  Apparently the management training I have been in lately is sapping away my technical skills.

Hmmm...  8350 is $180 on Newegg and the 9590 is $240.  It will be a few weeks before I can swing it, but it may be worth the extra $60 to go with the 9590.  Now I guess I need to look at overclocking for the next month or so...

Thanks for all the help!

It has been a little busy the past few days... 

With tweaking the settings that Cool suggested, I ran EVGA Precision and found:

With Shadowplay running & dual monitors:
CPU ~50 pct
Memory ~ 6.5 GB
GPU 1019
Volt around 1.100

Without Shadowplay it seemed to be a little better, but CPU increased:
CPU >60, usually 70-80pct
Memory - 5.5 GB
GPU 1167
Volt 1.2

Between what Cool and Dog say, I'm starting to think it may be the CPU...  How dependent is BF for CPU?  Looks like I need to look into OC or get a new CPU.


#9 Re: Hardware / PC Help » Battlefield Graphics Settings - Help?!?! » Sat, Dec 27, 2014 7:49 pm

I couldn't tell a significant difference with only 1 monitor.
Acer is listed as #1
Multi-display/mixed-GPU accel - Use Global Setting (multiple display performance mode)
PSU is 700W

Could be AMD bottleneck, haven't tried overclocking.  CPU runs around 60-70 degrees when gaming.
I haven't turned off Shadowplay in a while to test it.
I will try the settings you recommended in game.
Max Pre-Rendered frames is Use Global Setting (Use the 3d application setting)
The application runs on the SSD, and I can load in pretty quick.  There is a Battlefield 4 folder on the other disk, but it only has a few files less than 1MB in size.
I haven't run EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner.  Will check those.  I have CPUID HW Monitor which just gives me temp, voltage, etc.

Ok, for the life of me, I cannot figure out my graphics settings for Battlefield (or anything else to some degree).  On the loading and post-match screen I show upwards of 140 fps at times, but during the game I still dip to 30-40 fps, like on Shanghai and Flood Zone last night.  Also, the game seems to be laggy when I look down the sights.  Here is what I have and am currently set up with, any help would be appreciated.

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Motherboard
AMD FX-8150 3.6 GHz 8-core processor water cooled
8 GB DDR3 1866 RAM (14900)
MSI GTX 760 4GB (Drivers 344.75)
Samsung 840 SSD for windows/applications
2TB Seagate HD for user files
Dell 24" 1920x1200 monitor 12ms - Battlelog, Vent, etc on the screen

I also have a user.cfg file with the following entered in it:

RenderDevice.Dx11Dot1RuntimeEnable 1
RenderDevice.TripleBufferingEnable 0

WorldRender.LightTileCsPathEnable 0
RenderDevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 0
PostProcess.DynamicAOEnable 0
PerfOverlay.DrawFps 1

I have tried dropping down to 1 monitor, but I find that when I do, Shadowplay will cause the game to stall when I hit F9.  It doesn't do this when I am running dual monitors with Vent and Firefox on the other screen.

You may want to look at a GTX 770.  I think Current and Sleepingdog use it.

I'm pretty sure Wreck got you booted off the Borderlands 2 world for burning bridges...

Played the beta a little, and I think I was right.  It seems like a cross between Battlefield and Payday.  You even get shot while behind an armored car.

Looks to me like a cross between Battlefield and Payday.

I got some 6" rough country lift springs if you want them. I don't know if they'll fit a Bronco, but the front eye bushing is a 9/16" bolt, and the rear eye is a 7/16" bolt. I can't remember the length, either 47" or 49". Whichever is the standard length for k5s/GM trucks-pre 88.

I appreciate the offer but I sold the Bronco last summer cry

Don't tell us.... you bought a Prius.

Looks like they took cues from BF4 focusing on the cut scenes instead of making a quality game.
