    I had one of the 21" CRT monitors for gaming,after cutting a hole in my custom desk I built into the wall for one of these CRT ,which was a pain in the butt,took it out after a couple days and never went back to CRT again.Still have the hole in the desk lol.
    Now I started looking for the more famous models and prices are crazy on sites.So I actually drove around on garbage day this week,at night time trying to get lucky and find one of these big old monitors.
    I Check out some second hand stores and I mostly got what is a CRT monitor from the young ones at the stores.Still going to look and I wanna see first hand if I remember if it was a pain in the butt or did I miss something special and should buy on e of the good old Sony Trinitron FW900

    Hi guys

    Finished the game few days back, I enjoyed the game,finished like main story/mission and side stories/missions

    Still would preferred if game have been lot longer, if I would replay it again, probably yes but not in near future

    There have been a few missions which have been quite challenging but still great game


    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I don't have installed GFE and this Nvidia Sharpening filter would definitely help in this game

    Not sure if Reshade does work in DX12 because last time I tried got CTD

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I have CAS working in the game via Reshade under DX12.
    I posted about it some pages back.

    Finished as well with all the side missions, great game for me, Remedy didn't let me down. What they did with the credits was funny haha! It's just a shame that it's gonna take a lot of time before the new content comes out, I'd really like to play more of this.

    I agree that CRTs give the best image possible (I miss them so much, difference is huge) but it feels like they made this video to tell us "hey if you have a 2080ti and your game runs like crap, try it on a CRT with a lower resolution! But first, spend 1000+ dollars for an used FW900!" :D

    I have an old EIZO T962 21" 1600x1200@100Hz - also with Sony Trinitron screen. I tested that a few weeks ago actually :) The biggest difference that strikes you instantly after you get used to an LCD is very smooth motion and very fast response. Contrast is also better, but comparing to my professional LCDs, it's not that much of a difference...

    Honestly, after using the CRT for a few days I was happy to go back to my SIPS + ATW LCD. Color stability, readability, overall sharpness and screen size...

    Finished it too. 1080p/ all rtx stuff on.
    Can't say i was disappointed but i was left with a meh feeling. Forgettable story since you cant really connect with the character(s) when you completely lack context. They needed to give an origins story to engage people with the current goings on.

    And the game it self progression/pace wise would have felt like a far better experience if instead of arbitrary story key cards they'd used the abilities exclusively as means of accessing new places and progressing to the next point in the story.

    The RTX wow effect has been rather... Super exaggerated by mainstream media shills too. It degrades image quality more than it improves graphical quality. 1.03 did improve the horror inducing noise however, so at least the 2nd half of the game for me wasnt too bad. And yes I used the sharpening post processing thing, it cant undo what you give up vs all rasterized visuals.

    I agree with you 100% ,I must admit ,before the patch the game was not playable at all for me.After the patch it is fine and one of the best parts of the game is smashing stuff.
    I stopped using the Nvidia sharpening tool because it shuts of every start or every second start.
    Got my money's worth and the game is fun,more than I can say about a lot of games.

    This definitely shows where Remedy's priorities actually lie.

    Alan Wake was exclusive to 360 because of MS, then... later they brought it to PC in a truly fantastic PC port.
    Quantum Break, again exclusive to Xbox because of MS, then MS gave them a few months to try and scrap together a PC port, it fell short because Remedy had limited time and resources.
    Even with MS approving it, MS wanted the main focus on the console release.
    And, given that MS owns the QB IP, even after release and with the Steam release... Remedy could only update under MS's approval.

    Now, operating on their own. Control comes out... on all platforms. And Remedy, built it for PC then worked it onto consoles.
    And what happened, PC version is the best of the bunch, while consoles struggle with performance and random issues.

    Priorities are not ok even now because Alan Wake was xbox exclusive for a while, Quantumn Break was Windows Store exclusive for a while and Control is Epic Game Store exclusive for a full year.

    They should check their priorities if they have decided to annoy a good part of their fans on PC in exchange for ensuring 200K copies sold.
