received mine, spent some time trying to figure out how to swap in an SSD, abandoned my attemps at using the AlienRespawn and Windows Recovery and ended up simply cloning the HDD with third party software. Booted up like a charm.
Overall gaming experience is definitely satisfactory, even at...
I actually had my eye on this for a long time, but when i found out it uses the Arma engine I was like omg wtf bbq. I had enough of that nonsense in DayZ thank you very much :-)
I have no doubt the first person mode for GTA V will be a reasonable facsimile.
Played SoD yesterday for a couple hours. Definitely entertaining, definitely a direct console port. Overall 6/10. Worth the steam sale price, but co-op is the only thing that could have convinced me to pay full price.
what's funny is they are still in early access. Guess that's just the style these days, develop a game as you go and take money along the way. I'm not arguing, the game is very playable and fun in its current state.
To be clear, it was system managed when the issue was occurring. After I manually set it as described above, the issue was resolved. Kinda confused as to why though. That's why I'm wondering if I have too little RAM.
It was system managed prior to my changing it, when the problem was occurring. As to the pagefile size relation to gaming performance, it was definitely the last thing I would have guessed, so I'm also confused at the cause.
I'll try monitoring SSD useage and see if anything looks weird.
I recently started to see slowdowns in several games I play, where FPS would drop to the teens or even single digits. Lowering graphical settings alleviated the problem only somewhat. The games I noticed this in were Bioshock Infinite, Metro LL, and Sleeping Dogs. I also had this problem in DayZ...
I bought dozens of boxed games years ago and have none of them these days. But you know what I do still have? My steam account and the old games I purchased years back, like half-life, counter strike 1.6, etc.
I can't imagine myself becoming a fan of boxed games again.
