    I've only played a few minutes of this, but my initial impressions are good. It's built on Frostbite 3, so the visuals are fab, although there's a few jaggies here and there, and the framerate is locked at 30 for some reason.

    I'm looking forward to trying out the Copper career as you can put your blue flashy lights on, which is more fun than I'm willing to admit. I've never really grown up tbh. But what I'm REALLY looking forward to is playing with some mates. It's very geared (pun) towards playing with friends, and one thing that looks awesome is Ovewrwatch.

    This overwatch thingy gives you the ability to troll your mate's games. Finally! Can't wait to put some spikes just before the finish line :)

    The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that last screenies' on an iPad, which is another nice feature that will be familiar to BF4 peeps.

    Poppycock. I was taking the family out for a pleasure drive in the countryside and was victimised by the state.

    Easily fixed through the command line; right click the game in Origin, click Game Properties, and add

    -GameTime.MaxSimFps 60 -GameTime.ForceSimRate 60.0

    to the Command Line Arguments field, then hit Apply. Just make sure you adjust your settings so you can actually push 60fps.

    I am tempted to get this but am not sure given I tend to get most of the NFS series

    I have shadowplay permanently turned on now recording the last 10mins and have noticed no visible difference to gameplay or FPS, clever bit of kit. not sure it's recording in true 1080p mind as the video quality doesn't match on screen but it's a good easy way of capturing gameplay. Fills the hard disk up quickly mind as i'm forever hitting Alt F10 when i think i've done something cool but on watching back most get deleted lol

    Left on 'High', the quality is quite good. The crappyness comes from Youtube. I'll have to sort out a decent profile for handbrake.

    weets how olow you put your settings to get a constant of 60fps ?
  16. Weetabix

    Weetabix Staff Member Tagged Donator

    I don't. I can whack everything right up and get 60fps 99% of the time. Then, for no reason whatsoever, the framerate drops to about 40.
