Yeah that's fine, I'm really enjoying that game right now, I'll get nuclear up and running, will need to venture out and secure some better uranium sources. I might pop on PUBG too depending on how I'm feeling, pretty tired today for some reason!

After the pure scorn I suffered from Kasto, there I was right on the front line - pushing in under Archie's command... only to be blown up by you. I missed out on all the glory!

So....what you're saying is that Kasto and Archie murdered you and I'm completely innocent! Woohoo! Goodbye (pretend) guilt! :D

I'll probably pop on over the weekend and try to secure some more iron sources, we're running out pretty quickly.

Good rounds last night! I also gave Chains back what he dished out to me... although totally accidental. Be aware when shooting from a motorbike sidecar!

Highlight was winning the chicken dinner with all 4 of us alive... first time ever I believe?

It was a good win! :D

We did have some awful rounds as well. No harm in mixing up tactics. Might have some slow rounds before going full metal jacket (just to see something else than a .45 pistol).
What annoys me the most is drawing the short straw in a tight drop.

Seems like Kasto will never let go the grudge of Severny Fix!

Anyone managed any Day Of Infamy yet? Reading its quite good, similar to Insurgency but slower.

Wondering if this would be any good for a throwaway-coop like Dying Light was.... Seems to have a lot of hate related to a shite launch of the game, and lack of players online, but recent reviews are very good. Cheesy narrative driven coop. Drop in/out. Thoughts?

Didn't seem to be much interest so left it. Looks like it might be alright though, its only a year old and its Crytek engine so looks pwetty. Maybe another time like LAN night if its cheap again.

I'm around tonight!

Absolutely, well worth that cost.

Good games last night, shame we didn't get any dinners but I think generally my play and Chains actually has been much better of late.

Perhaps after 20+ years you're starting to bond? Glad good games were had! I should appear this week.

Credit is where its due, Chains showed some restraint and was responsive when we entered combat. Saying this though one game he did manage to land on the other side of the map to me Archie and Kasto and land on top of the power station cooling tower because Chains claimed he didn't hear Kasto clearly stating he had crashed and to pick a different starting location to allow him to re-join in.

Kasto valiantly drove through dangerfields on a motorbike to rescue Chains, who jumped off and survived (incapped) but was restored to full health by his friend... only for them to get shot about a minute later :P

I thought we agreed to never talk about that! I was reading something and watching the map out of the corner of my eye so I jumped thinking I was going to miss the drop!

Fixing my graphics settings (mostly disabling reshade) has made a HUGE difference. I was about ready to quit playing until I got a new gfx card but now I'm not even sure it's worth me getting one yet. This is the only game I've had any problem at all with so I may go all in and get a new pc at some point.

Wait for the optimisation patch before saving for a new card.

Once that is released I might try my res back in 1080p and review my reshade settings, but I don't see how making the colours brighter has any effect on FPS.

I lose about 5-6 FPS when I turn it on (which is quite a chunk when I'm running around 25-30) but that would be manageable. It's when I get into combat that it just turns into a slideshow with it on, now it's off aiming is pretty smooth almost all the time. I guess it's just some peculiar issue with my card and the settings that are configured.
