  1. Great work devs! Out of curiosity, is there any word on the unreal engine multithreading capabilities or animation/sound improvements in regards to AMD performance? Sorry for bringing it up, I know it's a tender topic.
  2. Same GPU and RAM, FX 8370e, I get ~28 on fools road, ~15 on gorodok
  3. This looks like it could be a ton of fun. Nice pics!
  4. Is it me or are these colors more saturated than what have been in place previously? It looks like SweetFX. I like it!
  5. Thanks for the shoutout! As much as I am and will always be loyal to the belief that BF2142 was the greatest ever, BC/BC2 really did well in what they were pursuing. I was extremely impressed with the Bad Company series in the same points you make, and by the compilation of split second trailer footage that likely isn't even real gameplay *coughUbisoftcough* , it still seems as if that is the track Dice will be taking this next release. I will be waiting it out, because with the amount of great games out there right now, Squad included, it is completely unnecessary to run the risk of disappointment in being an early adopter at a premium price (like every COD and iPhone release, eh?). That said, for the sake of putting COD in the ground and the hope of returning to the roots of true Battlefield (BF2/2142 with hints of BC2, I would say), I hope the game does well.
  6. Wonderful, thank you for the update.
  7. Finding a cache and destroying it. I feel like we may already have this mode in one shape or another. Now for adding mosquito sound effects...
  8. Hey Rick, welcome to Squad! I also started out shooters on MOH:AA, great game! I hope your experience here is one that you remember for as long as you remember your first FPS.
  9. I found the culprits.
  10. I think I've surpassed 10 kills once... ...so I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious.
  11. Oh wow, I didn't catch that about XAudio2, though I did notice a bunch of multi-threading support added! I'm not sure how many aspects of the multi-threading capabilities pertain to Squad (e.g. cloth flow and rendering as a multi-threaded task), but there was one I came across that said something along the lines of "adjusted tasks to be evenly distributed and scaled to the number of cores available" which prettymuch means us AMD 8 core users don't have 4 or 7 useless cores. Woo!!!
  12. I just want to point out the irony here. Congrats on being a mod now. :P
  13. Thanks for your input. Reading back over mine, I did not mean to give the impression that all AMD users are only AMD because they're of low socioeconomic status. I personally run AMD and always have (probably won't in the future though, given finances permit). From my observation, it seems that you and I are the exception and not the rule. I apologize for veering this topic off course. I look forward to seeing a fix for voIP and AMD lag in the future. Good luck developers and don't forget about us. ;)
