    Yeah it operates on a whitelist so Afterburner or rather Rivatuner 6.7.0b1 and the updates for it are all blocked. (Up to beta 5 I think it was and then 7.0.0b1 to the newest beta 3 yesterday.)

    6.6.0 being out of beta now should be functional however but it'll probably be a little while longer until 7.0.0 is out of beta and the EAC team whitelists that.
    (And then the game has to be updated and hopefully include the EAC certificate that has said whiteist.) It's a pretty strict system that from my small understanding of it the protection works via a lower level driver and basically strips access from anything trying to interact with the GRW.exe process which isn't whitelisted.

    I wouldn't recommend tampering with the EAC driver or working around it either, bit risky after all since EAC is loaded even if you put the game into offline mode.
    (And even in offline mode it will crash if you try to disable EAC with the "-eac" parameter.)

    So for now if you absolutely need overlay support you have to use 6.6.0 which should be whitelisted. :)

    If it's for something like screenshots then RTSS 7.0.0 will actually work but the game has to be in borderless mode and then when you capture a screen it'll be of the desktop (If no active running 3D processes are detected, won't work then.) but the game window will be on top of it so that's what I've been using. :)
    (Works with UWP too but RTSS 7.0.0 now supports Windows 10 UWP games.)

    Of course I'm mostly just using RTSS for a framerate overlay with FPS limiting functionality, if you are using hardware access in Afterburner for features like monitoring the actual GPU or other hardware then having a functional and visible OSD might be of more importance whether is monitoring clock states/speeds or fans settings or temperature.
    (It'll still work even without the OSD being visible though but then you won't be able to keep check of things or how to say.)

    Been busy collecting weapons and attachements, haven't even started on the story yet lol.

    I haven't seen alot of regions yet, and i'm about 20-25 hours in i'm guessing.

    Man stealthing is so hard lol, i keep messing up i never successfully done it yet.
    They always spot a dead guy or when a sniper gets killed. :bang:

    It helps to use a drone and mark as many targets as you can. However, I have had moments where I've been instant killed because an NPC popped out of nowhere and since I play on the hardest difficulty, NPCs do massive damage and drop you in less than a second with pin point accuracy. At least they die in less than 1-3 shots most of the time with the default AR (P416 if I remember?)

    On the other hand, there is a lot of things to do. I've played co-op for a few hours and it is nice to have your own game data progress (although I currently have the Beauty Queen without even killing/capturing all the smuggling buchons so....) I've explored maybe ~9 regions and 100%'d 2 and very close to a 3rd. Currently have 10 hour solo time + 5 and a half co-op time.

    Helicopter is the fastest way to travel due to all the mountains and winding roads but convoy missions can be a bit hard on one so I find a vehicle is the best way to stop them.

    Keep in mind i play on PS4, and the controls feel slow and sluggish wich makes it even harder haha.

    I need to rely on aim assist, and try to stealth as much as possible(wich i always fail in lol)
    Yea the map is huge, so much to do and explore it's really cool!

    You have so much freedom of how to approach missions. :D

    I like to stealth, taking out most enemies with sniper and sync shot that are outside the base or rooftops.
    I can never find all enemies, some are so well hidden or inside buildings, most of the time i get spotted by them and stealth just goes out of the window lol.

    It's really great fun but those stealth missions are hard if you don't use SMGs. I can shoot a guy on a rooftop with my MP5 and ppl in the same building underneath won't hear anything. Do the same with a silenced assault rifle or sniper rifle and you're done.

    The MP5 rocks!

    Yep, more than happy to admit that my initial impressions of this game were, for the most part, wrong.

    Great fun in an absolutely enormous open world where you can approach any mission/situation in any way you like.

    There are some rough edges but I'd even go as far as to say its the best PC game I've played this year.

    pistols do excellent job too. And their range is good enough.

    I really like this game (yes, I ended up buying it after playing the beta!). It's everything I hoped The Division would be but wasn't. In particular, I like that even in solo mode (which is how I prefer to plsy games), I am always accompanied by three teammates. Their A.I. Isn't perfect but it works well enough for next do far. They are especially useful for sync shots and revivals. A really great game IMO even if there's absolutely nothing original about the game. It's basically a refinement of every Ubisoft open world game that has gone before it but like Watch Dogs 2 it's polished and a lot of fun.

    550m sniper kills are nice to make.

    I bashed this game in the closed beta. It was horrible, but it seems that Ubisoft fixed alot of the issues in the release. I faulted and bought the game to play with a couple of friends and it's here where the game shines in all it's colors. Through the weekend i've been in tears laughing of all the stupid unfortunate events that occured during the gameplay with my very "special" forces friends :)

    Game is still flawed, but a lot of fun with a couple of friends teaming up.

    I like the game as well. I was apprehensive but with mostly positive reviews I went for it (I'm a sucker for open-world games...). It feels like the best aspects or farcry3/4 and the division were mashed up with a little GTA V in the mix.

    15 hours since Friday night playing solo. I don't think I've left the home area...focusing on getting guns and completing all the things before I move on.

    With a little oc I am able to play on ultra with textures high (dips into the 20s at times though). Looks nice besides the AA, it leaves too many jaggies for my liking.

    Anyone have issues with buying credits? I want to get some credits added to my account for buying weapons and other stuff but when I try to make the purchase it just says processing and nothing happens.

    I have huge issues with it, it's destroying gaming as we know it and anyone who spends real money on ingame currency is contributing to the death of gaming.

    Damn took me like 5-6 tries till i finally took over a FOB, i did it on advanced difficulty.

    I found out from youtube, a sniper rifle can one shot choppers so it's very handy to have it ready when you get Apache's on your arse.
    Think it's called HTI or something, looks like an AUG with a very long barrel attached to it.
    The bullet is pretty big, when you shoot it high in the air, you can see it falling down like a mortar lol.

    For killing foot soldiers i use a M4A1 and MK14 as my sniper.
    M4A1 is a very silent AR, has almost/same amount of noise reduction as a SMG.

    I was talking about actually buying the credits with real money. I don't mind spending the extra money if it helps me to feet a stronger player that wants to take advantage of his skill level although it shouldn't be like that though

    Well I run all my games on a "spinny" RAID array and the load times times were horrid. I moved it to my SSD RAID array and no more flipping thru tips for me :p

    I gotta try it in Borderless mode. The game stutters, jerks like crazy. Even more so when driving a vehicle. The fps goes up/down wildly.
