Thinking about splurging on a 3 monitor setup when I buy my new vid card, but I don't know squat about them. I've been pretty much a single-monitor guy (aside from dual-monitoring on office apps) for a long time.

I'm thinking of upgrading my pair of GTS450's to a craigslist-sourced 770 4GB, and increasing my screen real estate accordingly seems like a natural choice.

Which size monitors should I go with? My current single is an Acer X223W LCD (22"). Should I ditch it and go bigger all around, or should I stick with the 22" as my main? Should I just go with a bigger single?

Oh, game-wise, I still play some competitive Left4Dead, and I'm wanting to get into racing heavily in Star Citizen when the racing Beta comes out next week.

I'd probably be willing to go bigger and wider if it would be beneficial to gameplay. Pic related.

Same monitor I have :)

Triple 1920x1080s is the usual Hydravsion setup for screen size/ framerate balance.

You can run up to 6 monitors off Hydravision or AMDs Eyefinity, and depending on the card, each of those monitors can be up to 2560x1600.
http://www.anandtech.com/show/2833
(article is from 2009, so newer generation graphics cards can do this much better, but you really want something like the 780 for multiple hi-res monitors in a Hydravision set-up.

With the 770, you'd probably be just as well served with a single monitor running at higher than 1920x1080, so maybe a single 2560x1600 monitor would be good for you.

Here is a benchmark for the 770, albeit a PNY XLR8 model, which tends not to be as heavily overclockable as some of the higher end models from Asus, EVGA, or MSI.

Dang. I could buy six brand name 1920x1080 monitors for the price of a generic 2560x1600 with a decent refresh rate. Brand name 2560x1600's are over a grand.

Probably just stick to three though. My desk is only so big.

Thanks for the info, Operators! Stereoscopic Boob pic is a thank you gift.

Hey /vg/, so about half a year ago I posted about this game here.
http://www.hellrising.com/index.php

Its a browser based survival game where you get to play one of three races during the apocalypse, those being that of humans, vampires or zombies.
As a human you have to try to survive, generally by searching for items that will be of use to you, teaming up with other humans and annihalating the undead.
And as zombies and vampire's its your job to attempt to kill off the humans.
If you played before, lots of features have been added as well as a new map, NPC's with some new types of buildings and items.
will post map and guide

Because they ended Legacy of Kain: Defiance on a damn cliffhanger and I'd like them to finish the series before more of the character voice actors die of heart attacks or shit.

Tony Jay was the voice of the main antagonist in the series and died 8 years ago. Michael Bell and Rene Auberjanois aren't young guys either. The only guy who's not close to "random age-related cause of death" age yet is Simon Templeman, Kain's voice actor.

Planetside launched that year too, and if it can get a sequel, Legacy of Kain can sure as fuck get its finishing act made. Hell, they made fucking Thief 4.

I was about ready to say "he ain't that old" then I googled him and he's 74. With Patrick Stewart being the same age and William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy both being 83, I've just realized alot of Star Trek actors could be killing over at any time.

While I understand how people could draw conclusions about Visceral's political leanings and take some mild offense at this, this feels like attention-grabbing on Breitbart's part. The baddies are cartoonishly overblown and I'd feel no shame popping them like all the other polygonal adversaries before them. Hell, swap out the crims and trailers and it'd look like every other cawadooty from the past six years.

  So that mod for red orchestra 2 is going indy and will be based on the unreal 4 engine

http://www.incountrymod.com/

>Today is a big day for In Country:Vietnam as we announce our transition to a full-fledged independent title.

>We would like to thank Tripwire Interactive and our past contributors for their hard work and support during the development of the modification. We would also like to thank those of you who have been loyally following the project over the last few years.

>We can assure everyone that this decision was not made lightly, but was made unanimously and as development progressed we were able to thoroughly weigh up all of our options.

>Moving Forward

>We decided to choose Unreal Engine 4 for the future of In Country: Vietnam because it allows us to hit the ground running. With full access to the engine’s source code, as well as the terrific Blueprint scripting system, it is possible for us to prototype and design levels right away, whilst our coders implement the game's core mechanics.

>We view this is an opportunity to flesh out our gameplay and realism features from the bottom up, and a move to a standalone title is our best path forward in making the definitive, Vietnam First Person Shooter.

Reason I am making it is because I told my friend "Think of a character to make on dark souls and ill make it" and he is an asshole who wants me to die, so he told me to do dex/faith.

>> No. 48650 ID: e68bea
>>48649
Just because you played to a certain point doesn't mean they haven't become corrupted or made a bad call to resources due to errors in installation.

And driver installs are quicker and easier than backing up your save, uninstalling, reinstalling, and repatching the game. CoP has many known errors with DirectX and graphics drivers because it is a base DX 9.0 engine with DX 10 and 11 effects tacked on without thorough testing for performance and compatibility. That's just compounded by the poor architecture of Windows 8's kernel.

TL;DR
Quicker and easier, and you wont lose all your progress. IF these don't work, it is a bad game install. Nuke it, clean out all folders and reinstall clean.
>> No. 48651 ID: 626b5e
...post the damned crash report so I can actually see what's happening maybe? How is posting the tiniest bit of your system specs in any way going to tell me what's crashing and why?

If you're using the steam version, it's in Steam\steamapps\common\stalker call of pripyat\_appdata_\logs

If you're using a non-steam version, it's in your windows user profile's appdata folder.

Zip up xray_yournamehere.log and the most recent minidump file, stick them on here, and I'll tell you how to fix your shit.

  Compare with this. Squares invade rectangles, the game.

I mean, yes, you can zoom in and it looks fantastic, but you'll never spend more than 10% of your time at that level. Also you might as well turn your speakers off. I'm not saying it has to be over the top like CnC usually is, but you need some kind of personality.
>> No. 48599 ID: 07ad6c
I guess I'm letting my jimmies get rustled cause I get hype for RTSs, and it's hard not to with a trailer like that, but ultimately the final product has been so different from what the trailers are. I'm skeptical the game will be anything I personally am looking for out of an RTS, but how do I wish it will resemble that.

Nice to see this in development after 'C&C Generals 2' was cancelled by EA.

I bought Red Dragon during the summer Steam sale and I'm very happy with it. I enjoy it more than ALB.

There's the constant whining about balance and overpowered this and that, but I enjoy it and I thought it was well worth the money.

The Gotha is already in Rise of Flight, along with the Handley Page 0-400.

Basically what happened (IIRC) was that a Russian historical society put up the money for 777 to model the Ilya and make a Eastern Front map for the game. The historical group gets a game they can wheel out at events, and 777 gets the prestige and can release it as a low-cost version of RoF for people who are maybe interested in the game but aren't ready to start spending a lot of money on it. (I managed to luck out and grab the game and most of the DLC on Steam for 75% off during the last Christmas sale) Hopefully it'll do well and they'll be able to model some of the indigenous Russian fighters later on.

Personally I can't wait for them to finish IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad. That's the main thing I'm looking forwards to.
