Going to post my reshade preset here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=01169818578195632757
Install reshade on the exe found in this DIR:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\sandstorm\Insurgency\Binaries\Win64
Then throw my file in that same folder. Here's before and after photos. Cheers!
@Sgt-Kanyo I'm guessing you're the guy from online when we were playing precinct and i told you about this? These are my settings.
I'm also overclocked. Here's my settings for my 1080 OC. And this is the guide i used to do so
Go to the game's root dir and click these 2 check boxes
I also right clicked on the exe in this folder, and clicked off these 2 check boxes
My hopes are that you enjoy the game. I want to do everything within my power to help this community grow, and i hope that by sharing some of these things, you will benefit. Have a good day man!
HUGE SANDSTORM PERFORMANCE FIX SPREADING ONLINE. Got this from Reddit.
DELETE EVERYTHING IN THIS FOLDER
on all settings VERY HIGH i'm now getting over 180 frames and NO stuttering. Best framerate and performance i've EVER gotten. Dont worry about your character and stats, those are stored server-side. You can make a copy of the folder just incase you're extra worried. I'm telling you though....the game has NEVER run smoother.
I was on hideout, defending A as security forces. I'm up on the top looking out at the oncoming wave, and i count SIX molotovs in the air. All the bots ran the same route on the way up to the house, and all threw at the exact same location....so there was an arcing stream of fire heading towards us. Each one was maybe spaced out half a foot apart? But all followed the EXACT same trajectory into the bottom doorway. It was the best moment I've seen yet of this ludicrous bullshit. I would have gone back and captured it, but it was on custom servers
Did you play this weekend's patch? I have a high end system, but it ran MUCH smoother than any other patches to date. My friends with varying lower-tier systems all noticed drastic performance improvements. Did you refund the game?? You shoulda kept it up until the hours before it released to make that judgement call (if you did refund).
There is a bot difficulty slider you can access in solo play or in your own server should you host one. Hit "-" on your numpad, and it will bring up the dev menu. Then you can go to "AI", and change the bot difficulty there. You can also spawn yourself weapons, freeze the AI, test their damage values (is this weapon a 1 shot, 2 shot, 5 shot, etc), and more. Knowing this, you'll encounter different custom servers with different difficulty bots. l believe from testing, in the regular matchmaking games, you may encounter different difficulty bots as well. For example, the bots only lean when on a higher difficulty. If you encounter a bot leaning, you know that specific game has a higher difficulty bot setup. Hope this helps.
once when pulling the trigger through the 4x SU230 scope, and once while simply bringing up my sight when it had a 1x red dot on it. Seems it's either something with an event occuring when the scope is open, or something with the event of opening the scope itself.
Other than this, GREAT patch. Smoothest it's ever been on my rig.
Devs, i'm rooting for you. I love the game you've created. Yes, many things need to be tweaked, but waiting for your patch over the next 24 hours is like being a kid waiting to open presents on Christmas morning. I'm hoping you blow the socks off of our expectations with this last polishing patch. I for one am proud to say I was a part of the testing phase. Which brings me to my next point. Thanks for letting us test your game! I've pumped 370 hours into this thing, and I've enjoyed 99% of it.
Maybe next time Epic Games can give you guys a heads up about their store, so you can keep more money for yourself
If "due to overwhelming feedback from the open beta, we're deciding to push the release back another x months....." were to happen, i wouldn't blame ya! I'm sure you'd all put that money to good use.
