Patch 1.3 is out. http://steamcommunity.com/app/403640/discussions/0/152390648096322246/
Update v 1.3 overview:
General performance and optimization improvements
Added a setting to turn OFF Camera Motion Blur
Additional mouse improvements
Fixed various issues related to user interface...
Update 1.2 notes:
Reduced framerate stuttering
Added a customizable FPS limiter to reduce the fluctuation
Framerate capped at 120 FPS to prevent physics issues which occur only above 120fps
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...
The patch with the bonus missions are out... but can't be played yet :-(
Leaderboards now display the Contract completion time of all players, when viewing their detailed score.
Added a detailed pop-up of the required Target Kill/Objective conditions on the Briefing Page and...
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.
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...
I don't know what happened here, but the combination of 1080p, Cryengine, black crush (on XBone), tearing, load times, etc is simply incredible.
Lichdom Battlemage PS4/Xbox One: Worst Frame-Rate We've Ever Tested
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...

White bar = XP progress.
Skull = Toxicity (gained by drinking potions)
Healing depends on difficulty, but you might want to take the Sun and stars perk which gives passive healing during daytime (can meditate to heal fully). There are also two main kind of healing potions, though out of combat...

PC Patch notes for patch 1.0.610.1
Nothing about using floats for absolute time though :-p
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...
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).
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...
Wait, didn't they just announce they're going to change the netcode? Guess I just assumed that was going to go on on the PC version (considering how much easier that one is to update).
