    If you changed branch and it didn't download anything, then it's the same. If you're still on the beta branch then you don't know.

    Dishonored 2

    Pretty sure the "Talk to Vasco" quest step ("The Good Doctor") bugged for me. I did talk to him, but have a blue line through that step, not a green checkmark. Not a big deal, but annoying (it's required for the Special Action "The Three Witnesses"). Also what's with the ~20 saves limit. Not...

    No. Yes. Bethesda.net FAQ: Vulkan Now Available - FAQ |Bethesda.net Forums EDIT: They link to Crimson 16.7.1 which has the same display driver as 16.7.2, but not reason to not go to 16.7.2 if you're upgrading anyway.

    AMD Brings More Console Features To PC Gaming With New "Shader Intrinsic Functions" For GPUOpen

    The "AMD Mesh Optimizer" is presumably an offline tool, so of course it's not vendor specific. AMD exposing parts of GCN via API extensions isn't really comparable to "GameWorks". Intrinsics is a well understood way to access low-level features from a higher-level language. When you write any...

    Warning: Lichdom Battlemage

    Rise of the Tomb Raider

    VXAO is DX11 exclusive, and you need an updated patch 5 (build 638.8) which was just released for it to work at all.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider

    I would expect this to be mostly useful for low-CPU setups. Still the "higher lows" on the two more complex scenes seems consistent on my config (3770k at stock). I mean, min 14 on DX11 vs min 60 on DX12 in the Geothermal Valley section. Would be nice to have frame counts to be able to tell how...

    Rise of the Tomb Raider

    Testing DX11 vs DX12 on my 290 in the internal benchmark I seem to be getting higher lows on DX12, but overall it's a wash (came out ~59.9 fps on both). But that's the internal benchmark, hard to tell how representative it is. I should probably test without the framelimiter on, but I play with...

    AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2

    If Kyle was actually legitimately concerned about any of this, he'd do his own benchmarking of AoS THE GAME, get the frame times and do some actual journalism. <crickets> As for people saying nVidia isn't bothering because there are no DX12 games, you are crazy. DX12/Vulkan is the future...

    AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2

    If you want interesting, consider that nVidia are now sending out notes that async compute is not enabled on 9xx series cards in the drivers (never mind that enabling it seems to impact performance negatively, which is a bit odd). "Nvidia reached out to us this evening to confirm that while the...

    AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2

    So the idea is that it would be better if they kept quiet about what's new in the driver? It's not like nVidia hasn't spent man years optimizing for benchmarks like 3DMark, and I'm sure if/when they have a DX12 showcase they'll shout it from the heavens. If anything, at least this is an actual...

    Crimson 16.2 hotfix is out

    You mean Vulkan. I had the beta driver installed before so I couldn't really tell if it was a leftover from that or not, and they haven't updated Radeon Settings to report the version number.

    The Witness - Jonathan Blow Exclusive

    It's a lot, but it's counting every single panel as a 'puzzle', when really many panels together form part of a greater puzzle. A single panel can take anything from seconds to you giving up to solve. I think he's said it's a roughly a 40h game (for the ending, not to 'completionist it'), which...

    297+5. Realized I could do the shaded forest, which compared to the tetris village and tree-house was a piece of cake. That's almost at the halfway point of # puzzles I believe (~600)

    The Witness - Jonathan Blow Exclusive

    Made good progress today and yesterday. 272+5. Think I'm just two away in the castle (in the tower). I've also made good progress on the tree-house, quarry and 'tetris' place (though got stuck on the red elevator puzzle).

    The Witness - Jonathan Blow Exclusive

    Nope. I mean, you can look up solutions on the internet, but puzzles is what this game is. I actually hope the narrative will kick it up a bit, because I'm not super-interested in the puzzle-solving as a challenge itself. So far I'm not getting the "you feel smart when you solve it", only "I...

    The Witness - Jonathan Blow Exclusive

    Am I the only one here playing? I'm currently at 216+1 puzzles. Believe that's about 33% total completion (or half-way to the end game), but of course the difficulty ramps.
