    Thanks for the input! Well as I've not been playing since the last patch I haven't been able to unlock the Martini, I know, shame on me hehe

    But he also said that this rifle was insane, good to know they sort of nerfed it. Will get there eventually :)

    Not a fan of the new buff for planes. Mount Grappa's just full of bombers and they are lethal. Also, wtf is up with pistols being more powerful than machine guns? New map is the worst of the lot and just feels like it's be quickly put together. On another note...Sniper really need to be limited, it's actually killing the game for me. Mix that with the fact that Dice doesn't seem to give a **** about cheaters and has a piss poor anti cheat solution and you have a game that I don't think will be around for long. Don't get me wrong, I love it but the the gripes are great big ones that don't seems to be getting looked at.

    yeah.. I was surprised by the planes buff. Honestly, the game was way more fun and balance at launch. Right now, it feel like it is all over the places. Getting worse with each patches.. :bang:

    And agreed, the new map is junk, they should remove it. Probably the worse map ever in battlefield I have played.

    I think the map was thought out as a single player map, I mean, in the campaign I liked it quite a bit. However playing it multiplayer is different, I really don't like it either. Sinai Desert was the opposite, it was clearly designed for multiplayer, as in the campaign it felt pretty much empty.

    Nerfing the flak cannon was Dice at their best as usual. If the pilots didn't want to get shot at/down, get their squad and teammates to take them out. Dynamite and limpets do it quite nicely. As it is now, the front gunner can kill you on the aa before it gets in range of your cannon. Totally agree with Kono on the launch. Only thing that was way off was the range of that railgun hunter shotgun and the fighter machine guns.

    Is this "combat fog" a new thing? Don't think I saw it before patches. Granted haven't played much yet.

    Good way to debuff snipers I guess but found it annoying anyway.

    So safe too assume that BF1 will FORCE you to update to the new driver just to play that game when no other game seems to care what driver you use.

    Possible hardcoded again, yes. But there is a way to avoid it and then is able to play not with the latest (needed) driver.

    Just got BF1 guys.

    Is there an issue with DX12?

    Seems the game continuously crashes either at loading or during the loading of a mission. Haven't tried online yet, just wanted to play the story a bit.

    I had to open the profile settings file and manually change it back to DX11 to get the game to run. All the Graphic settings are maxed out and runs perfect, but if I dry DX12 it goes it ****.

    Specs on the side are my rig, and I'm using 376.33 drivers.

    I haven't had the crashing issue, but on my 1070 DX11 still seemed smoother of an experience all around.

    Ok, I'll mess with it for now. I just didn't know if I'm missing some spectatcular visuals by not using DX12.

    I'll play with the nvidia control panel settings a bit. Could be MSI afterburner causing issues as well, never gave that a thought.

    Visuals are the same so you aren't missing out.

    Bought it today and it crashed after 2 hrs of gameplay on DX11 (3rd MP game, had played SP before that). No temp problems or anything like that.

    So, has DX12 matured since the beta? Was just a performance loss for nVidia earlier.

    Games been running smooth for me so far. I get 60 to 100FPS on a 64 player server with ultra preset @1440p so I can't complain.

    Whats with the CPU utilization though, its like 80 to 100% at times? Is it a driver issue of some sort?

    I know BF1 has steep CPU requirements, but the kicker is I loaded up Dragon age Inquisition the other day as well. Strangely I get the same 80 to 100% CPU use when before it was more like 50 to 60%.

    Before I had a 7990 vs the 1070 during the Dragon age play thru. So is it possible my GPU pushing my CPU to the max? and would Hyper threading help? I've got a chance to swap to a 4790k for dirt cheap.

    I see other people are still experiencing 100% CPU usage at times on 64-player Conquest servers. Seems like a widespread issue even with newer I5 & I7 CPUs. I just now started playing BF1 the past couple days and this is the only game to bring my CPU usage so high. I'm hoping there will be a patch to fix this, anyone know if this is in the works? Setting the frame rate limiter to 60 fps definitely reduces the CPU load, but this obviously isn't a good option for people running high refresh rates.

    I don't think CPU utilization is a bug. BF1 is one of the most CPU demanding game.

    Utilization is maxed cause its actually processing all frames it can. And I think even if GPU is not able to process 60 frames, CPU still pushing it limits to process as much as possible.

    V-Sync (better with triple buffering) should limit max fps to your panel refresh rate, saving CPU from rendering limitless frames.

    + rtss for fps cap to refresh rate and nvidia pre-render to 2.

    I absolutely agree, I have no other game that pumps my CPU like BF1 does. You could easily use it as a OC stability benchmark.
