Was like constant hitching, made it unbearable and aiming impossible.

you can fix most of the memory leaks by taking memory management away from the game and letting windows handle it. In launch options enter

Code: Select all

-malloc=system

Great game - much better than i thought it'd be. Initially i though the travelling and wait around doing nothing times were a bit much, but the more i've played it's not that bad. If you get in a car early and drive to the centre of a circle, that's when it's a dullfest. I've found myself following the circles in and also going after gunshots in the distance for easier kills - well not easy, i've been pegged a bunch of times doing this.

My beefs with the game so far:

1. Proximity sound seems non-existent -i cant recall ever having heard someone in a house with me but have stumbled across plenty of people. Oher people's footsteps or opening doors - i NEVER hear it, even with headphones on.
2. A lot of sounds seem very slightly delayed - such as your own footsteps. On multiple occasions ive ducked into cover thinking someone else is in a house and in fact it's my own walking.
3. Car sounds seem fucky. They dont seem to generate from the car itself but nearby and also seem slightly delayed frm the footsteps. It's almost impossible to tell what direction a car is coming frm short of knowing its close and spotting it visually.
4. Attachments are a complete pain in the ass - would be infinitely easier if switching weapons dumped the attachments into your inventory or something. The amount of times i've swapped weapons only to have to go through the attachment on/off game is a joke.
5. The last few feet of parachuting is shitty - it's like you completely lose control. Small niggle but a niggle nonetheless. Shiggle my niggle.
6. I have low level foilage enabled, but i see many games in streams where it's disabled. I think it should be enabled by default if it's even in the game as it gives you a false sense of cover when in fact you might be standing out like dogs balls. Only reliable cover are trees/rocks/buildings.
7. Shooting through windows is also ridiculously clunky. Multiple times i've seen someone outside and fired but the bullets have been stopped by the window sill despite a clear aim. it's safer just not firing through windows.

All in all i dont really have many issues but proximity sound is a big one.

The directional audio SUCKS. If I'm on the second floor of a house and someone is running around outside it sounds like they are right next to me.

I really like the free falling but the actual parachuting part could really use some work. The inventory management is pretty messy.

I wasn't sure how much I'd like it coming from H1Z1 but its leagues ahead of kotk in every way that counts.

The inventory isnt that bad to be honest - i like the way the contextual button changes on the left of an item for equip or use. It's quite intuitive but could use some work. For a first incarnation it's not bad.

And yeah agreed on the freefalling - that and parachuting is done really well. It's just the landing that's horrible.

KEEP AN EYE ON THE ....electricity? gas? whatever it is.

Had epic squad games last night, 3 wins with all of us surviving, 2 wiped in 2min (mil base = bad) and 1x we got tunnel vision and 3 of us died out of bounds after winning 3 big squad v squad fights over a house of dead guys loot but our last guy had silenced scar-l with scope and ended up on like 16 kills and won.

also, M24 = beast, final 20 fight I knocked down about 8 guys and we just mopped up the rest.

Finally got a new vid card to replace the one that was fried and played a few rounds last night. So nice with foilage locked on and being able to hear peoples footsteps. I wish i could play groups as well as solo but alas my lot in life is the lonely path.

Set your foliage to 'Very Low'......otherwise you will think you are hidden, but we will be able to see you because our client side foliage is set very low :P

Jump in Discord and we can set your nick to receive the @hasbattlegrounds notification, always guys around for Duo's & squad games! :D
