yeah bruh my game is on an SSD an I'm on an i5660k and gtx1070ti with 16gb ddr4 ram, this update has really fucked the performance pretty much no matter what my settings are. I was playing Refinery yesterday and kept freezing for a few seconds every so often which didn't happen before, and now texture pop in is hilariously slow....
So first off before this patch, the game ran pretty well, definitely not the best but it was by no means bad.
My specs are:
Asus Z170p motherboard
EVGA geforce 1070ti 8GB
16GB vengeance DDR4 RAM
Sandstorm is on a 120GB SSD
After the patch I'm experiencing awful slow texture load ins. some feel like they dont even load in and look like this most of the game:
Sure there were some texture load ins previously but they happened pretty quickly and were barely of notice to me but now this is a joke to be honest, I don't know what went wrong. this update feels like a massive step back to me and this is really frustrating since I was really looking forward to playing it. and while I didn't play to much of the CTE, it certainly didn't seem as bad as this so I am really unsure as to what has happened.
I was also playing refinery earlier to test the new patch and my game was freezing for up to about 3 seconds in some cases it's pretty bad and was happening quite regularly. I just really am unsure as to what has happened, I have tried alot of fixes with various settings as well. even deleting my whole player config as well as verifying my cache.
There must be a hotfix soon to fix whatever problem that is happening because its not just me as well you can check the reddit to see people having similar issues or worse. I don't want this post to come of negative towards the devs or anything of the sort, I just love this game and I am really frustrated that this update is essentially a massive downgrade and a remarkably huge step backwards in performance for me. Please release a hotfix or something ASAP NWI I dont wanna play with stutters and terribly loaded textures especially since I have a pretty decent computer.
Here's a link to the reddit thread where I explain more of the problem and others share their experience as well as with some more screenshots: https://www.reddit.com/r/insurgency/comments/avz4jg/anyone_else_having_awful_texture_loading_issues/
I will say my fps with this most recent update seems alot more consistent overall but does feel lower to what it was, as maybe I'm GPU limited? not sure though.
My specs are:
Asus Z170p motherboard
Skylake i5 6600k 3.5ghz quad core
MSI GTX 960 4gb
16gb corsair vengeance DDR4 RAM
and my settings are mainly low with some exceptions and i get around 60 fps on average probably, textures also seem to load in really slow sometimes, I do miss the buttery smoothness of the source engine, so do you guys think I should start to upgrade my specs for higher fps and graphical settings on sandstorm?
If so what should I upgrade? GPU? CPU? both? I thought they weren't too bad tbh but I'm not sure?
It will be modded. Don't forget mods, people. Just look how prolific the modding community is for Ins2. I'm pretty sure plenty of customisation options will be available through modding.
this is true....obviously? I'm almost sure it will be modded. but it doesn't have to be and I think it would be cooler if it wasn't tbh, like if you could have certain skins for the current credit system or for doing special things? just like in day of infamy if you get a certain amount of kills with a bolt action rifle you get a cloth wrapped one etc. they're so many possibilities they could do without going too overboard though ofc.
So when you're playing co op and pickup an enemy weapon and they have a holosight, they have a tan textured holosight, which used to be on some weapons by default when the player selected a holo optic. So i was wondering if this will become a cosmetic thing you could change, so you could switch them out and the devs could even add more options later down the line, like a OD green variant or camo ones etc.
E.g: swapping them like this:
I also think it would be good, if you could customise your class loudouts without being in a game so you can create new ones and save them and I remember seeing a potential hint at this when on the appearance tab there used to be another tab that said loudouts that looked like this:
but that just said coming soon and the tab for it has sinced been removed, so I'm not sure if it will return?
Please also add the option to delete existing loudouts - Idk how this isn't a thing yet!
bruh... you're on a GT430! course you aint gonna be playing sandstorm with that shit, sure the original ins which is 4 years old and built on an engine that's about 14 years old you'll get some frames, but this unreal... you need an upgrade bro.
There already is no vehicles and 'bombardment' in competitive?
