    I cant even get past the Bethesda intro. Stutters like crazy down to 1fps and later i crashes. Both Alphas worked fine...wonder what might cause this?

    Was hyped by the live-action video today. I've to say the reality just ruined any hope i had :/. The level design is quite a letdown to me. i'll pass.

    Edit: Watched again.. I've been unfair... The map looks okey. I guess i'm just frustrated lately lol. No game has me sitting in front of my screen saying "wow, this is it", in a while now... :/

    Don't touch any keys or mouse, just let it struggle for a bit and eventually the game will load up.

    Is it realistic for jeeps, tanks and planes to appear out of nowhere?

    You guys should stop... there is nothing wrong with liking either series, they are both very different, it's not worth wasting time debating.

    I must say, after playing new Unreal Tournament Alpha this looks dull, slow and boring to me.

    Now, this is what i had in mind. If it's an arena gamemode, i'm expecting faster action than this. Is Unreal tournament on open beta? nevermind i'll check by myself.

    Copied from my Bethesda Forum post: "How to get full game graphics but not playable" probably wont do anything there so I figured I'd get Gurus' take on tweaking the game and what people have figured out.

    If your on Nvidia go to the driver 3d settings menu by right clicking desktop and then on Texture Filtering Negative LOD Bias Set Allow instead of Clamp. Not sure what texture size this allows but it looks a hell of allot better but also lags and fps drops from pegged near 60 to 44 avg fps(780 SLI SYSTEM BUT GAME ONLY USES ONE CARD). But wow does it look a million times better.

    BETHESDA DEVS YOU NEED TO FINALLY ADD SLI TO IDTECH 5 ENGINE SO WE CAN GET FULL PERFORMANCE OUT OF THIS GAME. WITH ALL YOUR BETHESDA AND OTHER HOUSE GAMES YOU SHOULD HAVE COLLECTIVE RESOURCE TO FINALLY NAIL DOWN THIS FEATURE. WASNT IN RAGE AND I DOUBT YOU HAVE IT FOR THIS GAME EITHER.

    For closed Beta participants play around with Nvidia Inspector settings and see if you can find any gems. Disable anti aliasing especially if your on 1440p or higher and go ahead and crank aniso to 16x or whatever else you want but realize this will just show you THIS GAME IS BEAST AND YOU WILL NEED A NEW PC THIS GAME IS SINGLE GPU UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE SO BUYING A 980TI OR EVEN BETTER WAITING FOR THE BEST SINGLE CARD OF THE NEXT GEN WILL BE THE BEST MOVE.

    Game looks great on high graphics but you will need SLI to run it at 60FPS with older cards thats why this game is 60 FPS capped SLI still isnt developed in idtech5 engine(which is a damn shame) and its running some real high tex I can tell. Of course this would be allot better with console access and some fine tex tuning with cvars. MAN I HOPE WE ACTUALLY GET CONSOLE ACCESS...... PLAYING AROUND AND SEEING THE FULL TEX GIVES ME HOPE BUT THE WAY THE KEYBOARD BINDINGS ARE LOCKED IN HIS BETA DOESNT GIVE ME MUCH HOPE. LOOKS LIKE OTHERS HAVE POSTED THEY COULD BIND THE KEYS HOWEVER THEY WANTED IN THE ALPHA SO ITS INTENTIONALLY LOCKED FOR NOW. I HOPE WE ALSO GET CONFIG FILES YOU GUYS HAVE OBVIOUSLY TOTALLY REWRAPPED ALL THE DOOM AND QUAKE FILES AND CONSOLE PORTED IT ALL OUT. YOU WILL NEVER IMPROVE ON CARMACKS CONSOLE OR SETTINGS SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST GIVE IT ALL BACK TO US AND STOP BEING TURDS.....!!!!!!! IF THIS WAS YOUR ORIGINAL INTENTION I APOLOGIZE BUT YOU ARE SENDING BAD SIGNALS AND ITS INTENTIONAL...........OO.......................

    Game is blurry because you have lod clamp on and the texs are set really low in the game changing the lod bias sidesteps that in the driver.

    I tried the beta last night though admittedly I am not a fan of online shooters at all due to finding them too repetitive when stripped of a narrative and defining ending. The game seemed OK as far as these things go but it honestly seemed no better and no worst than Quake III Arena which I played a decade (or more?) ago. Sure the graphics look a little nicer, though they're hardly what I would call "stunning" (textures look flat and dated for example) but the gameplay is exactly the same run 'n' gun stuff I've seen many, many times before. It all feels instantly overfamiliar and dull. So clearly not for me then?

    I was disappointed that they didn't include a single player mission because that is what interests me far more.

    P.S. I had the loading screens stuttering and pausing alarmingly on first loading the game to the point where it was five minutes before I gave up waiting for the main menu to appear (I could hear music and sounds playing albeit cutting out frequently). However, pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del causing the screen to go black and I no amount of pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc, Windows key or Alt-F4 could return me to the desktop. I had to reset my PC from the case which is really poor for a beta this close to the game's launch. From what I can tell this issue seems to common with even Digital Foundry having so many problems trying to load it that they couldn't even do a performance video on it yesterday (they did one only for the PS4 as they couldn't find anyone to match with on Xbox One).

    This game supports unlock framerates up to 144 i have seen ?

    Does this also mean it syncs with the monitors refresh rate ? like 120 fps in 120 hertz ?

    Or is this **** 60 fps locked again on a 120 or 144 hertz monitor ?

    In the beta, no its locked on 60fps. But i think already supports 144hz, because when u enter the game the refresh rate doesnt change on my monitor.

    Also i think they managed a premiere, id tech engine was build to the ground up to work on 60fps. I think they heavily modified the engine to support unlocked frames.
