    Yeah, but no one that actually enjoys games is squinting. We're too busy killing Xenothreat in one of the most fun experiences i've had in a game ever.

    It's hilarious how people keep saying "no game" and yet here i am having more fun "not" playing this "game" then all the people that come to bitch about it.

    semantics and opinions, but any full "games" is still a year or more out.


    still the quality team plus they seem to be getting back onto the pu a bit more, some missing stuff starting to return, big ticket stuff.

    It's double, maybe even triple speak based on the common unintelligent prattle that star citizen will never release (it has) or be playable (it is)

    Denial is an avid Star Citizen player.

    This discussion is kinda endless and they sure have put out more than a couple of empty rooms by now. However, if I look at what is currently playable, it's definitely a product in an alpha stage with a lot of bugs and technical issues. On top of that they have outright predatory monetization of their game. It would go a long way to change many minds if they were to release the SP part. That would be a point where I would check it out and maybe even consider buying the MP part. But as it is, I really don't see the point of jumping in right now.

    Honestly this patch has been unplayable for me so far. Have connie - go to try out the ship to ship docking, take the 52 out, ship immediately explodes. Okay weird - Restart, try again - hit n to detach, ship enters weird state where it doesn't move.. meh. Land on planet, turn off engines/etc - get out walking around while talking to my gf, not really paying attention, find my ship blown over completely. Nice. Restart again, finally get the docking to work - sweet. Land on planet again, ship falls through planet immediately.

    I've had the clip through planet before and I've heard of the ship blowing away in wind thing but to have all these issues in a span of two days just drove me nuts. Going to try it again at some point because it seems like performance is better this patch but frustrating to say the least.

    that is what i was reading by other players, sucks that got out of ptu but i think that is a post release thing maybe, main blockers were desynch and inventory issues, if there was an explody issue it was not showing till live i suspect.


    but people effected have it real bad, definately check the support forums file a ticket.

    No. I would imagine not for a while -- they are still wrapping up basic functionality needed for the game. Maybe two more years?

    After few months of not playing friend called me yesterday that there is an error starting the game if he could play it before. With the latest update game basically needs avx instruction set.

    His xeon x5680 cant even start the game anymore.

    It's been like this since 3.12 I think - so about 6 or so months. Idk, Sandy Bridge introduced AVX and even Bulldozer has it. If you have something older than that.. probably time to upgrade.

    none of these require avx, its a basic check that it fails on then doesn't even use it (like Cyberpunk)

    star citizen does however, they are actually using it to optimize quadratic vectors in the chunk streaming, that said, its not a significant enough improvement to warrant discontinuing an SSE4 path.

    I was not familiar with that cpu model and after looking it up I was surprised with it being released in 2010... it did pretty well for itself being 6 core 12 thread, gosh I bet that was expensive at time of release *___*
