  1. The steps above were listed for laptop users. Most of them don't have GPUs and those adjustments will usually yeild a small boost in performance. Depending on your GPU you can go into the settings and manually adjust things for individual applications. On top of that I would suggest lowering your game from 1080p to 1440p and using your GPU to upscale things on the backend. Some GPUs can force graphic settings on games that don't even allow you to change those settings. And as for the console commands. I do atleast suggest turning SSAO and tesselation off.
  2. If you, a family member, or a loved one are currently having issues with lag: QUOTE Me POST YOUR HARDWARE SPECS Go to https://www.speedtest.net/ and then Post Your PING, DOWNLOAD, and UPLOAD I need more information in order to help you.

    Was it? I don't remember playing the browser version and I definitely didn't install Reto's game launcher. But my game account was made in 2012... I'm so lost. Either way, I still haven't launched this game on anything but steam since it came to steam. Not going to argue anything; I still appreciate you.

    The new weather

    So when is this thread getting locked? Its not even about the topic anymore. They're literally discussing another game. P.S. I like the weather btw, but I'm also using my nvidia graphics card to apply my own filters to them in order to make things looks better.
  5. If we use the War Thunder System people will cry because they got killed in 1 shot through their Armor. So we are using a cross breed of the War Thunder and World of Tanks system where Tanks have a health bar, BUT you can disable systems. I personally would rather shoot the Crew out of a tank in 1 shot and make Tank gameplay more Specialized and skill based. Tanks get machine guns with no recoil, no cost for ammo, and an accurate af scope. Along with the ability to destroy infantry vehicles in 1 shot AND a splash damage ammo type (HE) that allows you to obliterate infantry in a 15ft radius without even having to see them. If we gave tanks proper armor systems and penetration then we would have an even harder time dealing with Tanks in the game. I think the best solution is the Battlefront System. Everyone queues as Infantry only and the only way to get into a tank is to have the points to use it in a match. This will limit their spawns and make them feel more dangerous, but to other tanks they will be on a more even scale. Especially if you penetrate and kill the crew. You got outplayed, my guy. Some of us actually protect friendly tanks, but the issue is that you ARE a major threat. Even playing the objective comes second when there is a good tanker on the field. So with that I also want to point out that the engine is the most lightly armored part of that tank. As a tanker you'd rather your crew be better protected than your engine. Which is why lighter tankcrews in War Thunder will usually present their engines to heavier tanks in order to block the round and save the crew. Then use their MG or whatever to spot the enemy for their allies. Is this a racist thing? It sounds like a racist thing... Remove AT weapons from the Tank Crewman class in General. I think AT grenades should work on a penetration value that way we can increase their damage to infantry while reducing their damage to armor. I also want them to stick to people though. I actually like being able to respawn in my tank. But you can't do that while you're under fire or there is an enemy nearby anyway because they DO work like a personal APC. Plus, if you don't destroy the armor after killing the player: thats kind of your fault. You want to destroy armor for EXP anyway... Increment the credit cost of AT Grenades. I DON'T have a ton of Credits lying around and I play every day. I spend credits on new toons and upgrades for weapons, vehicles, and skins all of the time. I also like to run expensive builds. If my AT grenades can't at least be used as sticky grenades against players without being cost effective then there is no point to having them if they can't even track a tank.

    I've been using the Steam Version since 2012.. Agreed. I appreciate you using this old thread instead of creating a new one, but why revive this three year old thread now? We know where this is going. We don't need to talk about it. Agreed. Oof, numbered your points to make it easier to reply to: Yes. This ones very important. Especially the Bandage. No; Stop with the badges already. Yes. Though they don't have anyone that can work the map editor right now. Maybe? Yes. The RTS side needs a lot more depth. Especially from the begging to the end of the war. Right now there isn't really a difference.
  7. Having watched your videos: You are not lagging due to game optimization. You're lagging due to server location. Both matches you've had the lowest connection possible. Secondly, those aren't the lowest Graphics settings you can get. If you're having trouble running this game on your laptop: Stop playing games on a laptop. Especially a laptop that isn't built for gaming. And even then: Stop playing games on a laptop. Laptops overheat very fast/ easily. Overheated CPUs/GPUs drop FPS. Keep your Power mode on "Balanced" so that your internal cooling systems can better manage your laptop's heat. Google and Install "Smart Game Booster 5" Search "This PC" in your "Windows Search Bar" > Right-Click the "This PC" icon > Click "Properties" > Click "Advanced System Settings" > Click "Yes" to allow the program to make changes > Click the "Advanced" Tab > Click "Settings..." under the "Performance" section > Clicl "Adjust for Best Performance" under the "Visual Effects" tab > Click "Apply" > NOW click the "Advanced" tab > look under "Virtual memory" > Click "Change" > Set to your total available RAM in MB.

  8. Pfft, I backed Enlisted heavily back in 2012 and have been apart of every single inhouse stage of that game's playtesting along with everyone else who payed $250+ for Gaijin's development tier. So go ahead, I'll just ignore you on the forums there too for posting a thread without any helpful information.

    Optimization of this game

    We're still on about this? Theres already countless threads with the same thing. Didn't we figure out already that its linked to certain CPUs and Antivirus Software? I have a $400 laptop I bought from a Walmart back in 2005 that runs this game with 60 to 80 fps and no stuttering whatsoever. (intel pentium processor, no GPU, maybe 8gb ram) I had to disable the Avast Antivirus and windows firewall to fix it any other oustanding issues, but this game runs on a brick. I think they're going to fix this with the compass system that they're implementing my 1080, 2080, and 3080 all run this game fine?
  10. Hey, Speaking of Unrelated & Unhelpful.. This whole thread is unhelpful. There is no suggestion. Theres no feedback. Nothing. I can sort of relate; Due to my spouse's government job I'm currently living at a hotel. The internet isn't great in my opinion, because I can't stream anything above 720p, BUT I don't get the "Network is trying to catch up" unless im in matches outside of my Region. That being said, how is anyone supposed to help if you don't provide details? What are you queing with? What region do you live in? Hows the quality of your ISP? Are you playing from a McDonalds? Like, Why waste everyone time posting a thread like this to Action Game Feedback & Suggestions when you should really be posting to Technical Issues or Customer Support. Someone needs to lock and/or move these threads...
  11. Pings and a voice command wheel are the way to go.

    Rejected. Since You Don't Seem To Understand How Suggestions/Feedback Works: Any form of Gameplay Suggestion that Excludes and/or Segregates ANY Player/ Playerbase will not make it to the Block. Sorry, Not Sorry.

    This has nothing to do with the Action Game. Please post your junk somewhere else. Or not at all. Thank you.
  14. Ooooh, okay. We're excluding the Ladies. Only for the boys. Yikes. I definitely agree. A call out when you spot an enemy soldier, recon, vehicle, armor, pilot, or plane would be nice. 'Q' command callouts would be nice too like "Assault this Position" or "Defend the Objective!!". Maybe even a "Gather up, Men"/ "Rally Here". I could Definitely use a Ping System, both for intersquad communication and on the Map as the squad leader for communicating with other Squad Leaders. I wouldn't say that combat is particularly fast. I definitely wish some of my weapons could kill a little faster. It's more like if you have enough fairly decent players rushing the right spot with the right weapon you can definitely catch people off guard and just Blitz through the points. The Germans are expecially terrifying at doing this because their Assault Rifles and LMGs have very little kick and high stopping power. Having tested comparable loadouts with several friends, Germany definitely has the advantage in most situations. The STG44 is incredible almost any way you build it. Minus the scope, ew. I have no clue why people run the scope on it. Anyway, that's off topic. SUMMARY: The speed of the battles has nothing to do with the lack of communication and more to do with core game design and player experience. Even if players could communicate properly the likely-hood that any helpful communication to come from it, like in Hell Let Loose/ Squad where the more hardcore players go, is very low. And in those games the pace is slower because there IS a sense of danger. I only image there being bickering and complaining from most players. And Racism from the rest. Are you kidding? Actual VOIP? Heroes & Generals Lobbies would be worse than Call of Duty lobbies. Have you been reading weapon/ soldier names? Read the Chat much? People are so openly racist and combative to their OWN teammates on this game I wouldn't be surprised if the "Clans" of this game were actually Klans.. If you know what I mean. I can atleast ignore it in chat; Having to hear it in my ears? No thank you. My take on those factors: As said just above, There is no sense of danger. The time to kill is slightly too low for 95% of the weapons in this game. I only run Heavy Set on 1 of my 40 Troops, and thats only because I designed him to play like the Heavy Weapons Guy from Team Fortress 2. I fear no man when my weapon is on Full Auto. This is True, but I find that the sacrifice to my stability isn't worth it on any of my Single-Fire or Semi-Auto Troops. My LMG, SMG, and Assault weapon Troops have no issue. It almost Feels like there is no penalty to sprinting indefinitely if I can spray down the enemy. Mounting my LMG or just Drop-shooting with it cancels out the instability of the weapon. This is especially true with the little amount of defensive capabilities you can bring to the game. Land/Anti-personel mines are so expensive that I can only drop 4 a match of each just to break even at the end. And my LMG does so little damage even with a Full Damage build that I can't defend a point against a rush even if I mow 4 or 5 people down. There is nothing we can do with the burn time. There used to be so many stalemates with the older capture times, because I could literally run from spawn to the point and still make it in time to contest it. When you're rushing defenseless points or setting up to back-cap a point before you've even captured the last: Yes, APCs are strong. The Leap-Frog Rush Technique is insane, if not absolute BS. That goes back to core Game-Design, however, and not lack of communication. SUMMARY: Better Communication won't help to counter any of this. There is no sense of danger. No chain of command. No need to fear other players let alone work with them (in the eyes of most Clan-less Randoms). The set rush tactics can't be countered without an equal or stronger defense: That defense being a chokepoint with an unnecissary amount of snipers covering it. The Only Tactic in Heroes & Generals: Send Two Assault Forces - The First to capture the Leading Point. The Second to Set-Up to Capture the Back Point. Once the Lead Point is Captured, Jump Ahead to the Next-Next Capture Point. Repeat Until Match is Over. INCASE OF COMPETENT PLAYERS - Post Snipers on your own Back Line to silently pick off anyone with a brain. EXTRA CREDIT - Add Armor or Planes to Support both your Assault and Defense! If they didn't hate the game before then they definitely will now! Who needs a player-base? Not us... NOT TRY-HARD ENOUGH?! - Substitute your Assault Force with Paratroopers! Cowboys of the Sky~ Yeehaw! *Pew Pew* Total Match Time: 5 minutes. *Clap Clap Clap* So Impressive! Everyones Having Fun Now!! Okay, the Short & Sweet: While I do think adding voice commands and pings to the game would definitely improve it overall; It will not fix the lack of danger or the game-design flaws that are inherant to the current 'open world' gameplay. I do not, however, want VoIP communication. The sheer amount of combative, stuck-up, racist, cry babies in this community is insane. I don't want to talk to any of you. Communication at this point is just Quality of Life. And even then that quality would just go down if you add VoIP to the game.
  15. I drive like a maniac in my Chafee. Always shooting, never stopping, and I've also never hit a boulder; No. I always hear about the "issue", but I've never once experienced it. Nope. I've played on the shittiest wifi, horrible sattelite, okay cable, and I've got fiberoptic internet now. But, yeah no. I have missed on account to horrible ping, though. You sure you guys aren't lagging? Or playing against people with crummy latency? Firing on the move I do tend to miss. I've gotten better at hitting shot off of ramps, though. You know, these all sounds like connection/ networking issues and not the game's issues. It could even just be RAM or processing. It could be the latency on your peripheries. Or all of the above. I've got a decent PC and a decent network setup. When I miss its either because im bad or someone else's connection is choppy. And even then when I get used to it I'm usually dead on. This also is not what my thread is about and should not be taken into consideration towards it.
