    Time zone based, unlocked in Asia and Australia a few hours ago so midnight and depending on time zone. :)

    Initial unlock actually made a bit of a snag and unlocked it world-wide it looks like but it was fixed almost instantly so probably didn't affect much since it takes a while for the Steam client to update to these changes unless it's restarted.
    (About ~10 minutes or so from when a update is registered to when it appears as a available download in the client.)

    for me the fps is all over the place when vsync is disabled or (displaybased)

    60fps locked seems good and smooth

    fullscreen takes over the display to the point of changing desktop resolution

    AA isn't doing much for aliasing

    FXAA is weird and misses most aliasing
    TAA gives a smoother image but it takes most aliasing out
    FXAA+TAA takes out all aliasing but the image is too smooth , adaptive sharpen from reshade can solve that

    That's a pleasant surprise after that news about the review copies. I hope it sells well.

    The "+com_allowconsole 1" command still works, most (all?) of the debug console commands appear to be working though you do get set to "Cheat mode." even for toggling post-process effects.

    r_skipglare 0 (The default, still activates cheat mode.)

    Glare comparison.

    And key bound.

    EDIT: ToggleDebugCamera works, but there seems to be no way to actually move the camera via keyboard.

    I've only played this for about an hour through Chapter 1 into Chapter 2 but so far it's intriguing if understandably linear as the game introduces you to its Matrix-style game world and characters. Not to much to say about the gameplay yet; it's the usual cutscenes, click A to investigate things and absolutely no combat so far (though there is one monster encounter...).

    Playing the game on maxed out Ultra settings at 2560x1440 with an Unlocked framerate but performance is absolutely all over the place for me. The game always feels smooth, thanks to G-SYNC, but in the opening sequence with all the fire the framerate was regularly south of 60 fps and dipping to the low 40s fps at points. After that, once the game starts properly then the framerate hovers between 55 and 70 fps on average, which is disappointing seeing at GPU usage never goes above 60% and CPU usage is under 40%. Visually the game looks very good - cutscenes appear to be real-time and feature nicely detailed faces but depth of field is poorly done IMO.

    I feel this game should be running better than that on my system. I'm using the v387.92 Game-Ready driver as well for this game on Windows 10 v1709 build 16299.15. Obviously the settings I'm using are not the problem as GPU and CPU usage are well under 100%. A poorly optimised engine maybe?

    With the last Nvidia driver shadowplay don't works with The Evil Within 2. When I try to share a gaming session on Facebook the game minimize to taskbar. The game also is not recognized on GeForce Experience

    Suggestions?

    Let me know if anyone finds any good ini tweaks or graphics mods. The game barely looks better than the first one and holy crap the reflections in windows and such have poor texture quality. I remember something about being able to enable 16K textures in the first one...

    This game looks much better dan The Evil Within. But CPU usage and GPU usage is low and i getting the same fps with ultra and medium settings.

    I have 2 issues.
    one is extreme banding but I just think the crapped the textures:
    https://lensdump.com/i/RS5qx
    Does the game looks like that on Your side?

    And the other problem is much worse. I can only play for 15-20 minutes and then it goes from perfectly smooth gsync gameplay around 50-70hz, to a crawl. It goes into single digits if I move or look around.
