Re: No Man's Sky

I played on for a bit last night and, unless there's something revelatory in the multiplayer, I'm probably done.

The bits I like about the game are still there, but also the bits I find tiresome....

Re: No Man's Sky

Fired the PS4 version up and there was an update waiting for me there too. Pleased to say that this one actually seems to have worked - I'm getting framerates better than I can remember for the game...

Re: No Man's Sky

A patch has just dropped on Steam. ;)

EDIT - Still stuttering every few seconds, so I hope this hotfix was to address the crashing and not the performance.

Re: No Man's Sky

Tried fiddling around with a few settings after reading some of the Steam threads but as soon as you fly to anywhere with a settlement, the stutters begin. Performance seems the same no matter what...

Re: No Man's Sky

FPS cap definitely wasn't my problem - It was capped at 144hz, my monitor's refresh rate.

Console performance is bearable so I'm playing there for now ...... and still haven't gotten the flipping...

Re: No Man's Sky

NPCs on space stations now move around instead of being rooted to the spot like an extra in Morrowind (2001).

Little things like that impress me more than they should. ;)

Let us know how you get on. 👍

It could well be that my GPU, which is basically a 60s muscle car compared to modern cards, is the problem.

I usually end up changing it whenever a particular game...

I'm playing in normalR. ;)

It's a stuttery, unoptimised mess on all platforms seemingly. A real shame.

I pushed on a bit further on PS4 and they seem to be doubling down on base building, which...

It's also crashing loads on console. Oops.

Re: No Man's Sky

Awful framerate for me. I'd been able to run it flawlessly at Ultra before.

I'm out until it's fixed.

Re: No Man's Sky

Ah right. Another bit of grinding required then.

I might get round to it later but probably not on PS4.

Re: No Man's Sky

Played around with it for a bit, starting a new save. The game's definitely more streamlined but I've not seen any of the multiplayer stuff yet - I suspect that won't open up until you're out of the...

Re: No Man's Sky

Yeah, when I saw that PS4 had patched I loaded up Steam and was a little puzzled that the update wasn't there. Consoles are usually last to get patches because of cert.

Re: No Man's Sky

PS4 update has dropped - 11GB.

Not tried it yet but a couple of people on my friends list are complaining about VR being hella blurry. I thought about saying 'It's PSVR, it's sh***, what do you...

I think I died 3 or 4 times on that ride too. Eventually, I figured out that going full speed for as long as possible but then leaving a bit of stamina in the tank for the final stretch was the best...

Re: The Videogames Tab

More so than enemies levelling up with you, the thing I noticed was how they appear to nerf DeadEye as you progress. When you unlock the 'paint the target' style it seemed to take a lot more bullets...

Re: No Man's Sky

The original Elite from 1984, with its entire galaxies (8) of stars and planets (256 in each galaxy), used procedural generation. Unlike NMS it wasn't random generation because they wanted everyone...

Not really. It's by the New Vegas developers and is a Sci-fi rpg and is definitely targeting that Bethesda audience but, crucially, it's being made by a studio with actual writing chops and is made...

Yeah they've said it'll be a 20 hour kind of experience rather than a Bethesda style behemoth which was a little disappointing at first but they were a small indie studio up until a few months ago....

The Outer Worlds is looking more than decent, and not far off now.

I tuned one, kept one stock ... then bought another and tuned it for a different class, even though you can save and swap tunings on the fly.

Then I saw some going cheaply in the in-game auction...
