I know the old view about the eye not being able to see above 30FPS isn't as cut and dried as people make it out to be, but when I had 120 FPS on my 144Hz monitors I can't honestly say I noticed any difference, aside from the much higher temp of my graphics card. I've gone back to ~40FPS and cooler temps.

Give me a shout when higher FPS (or lower ping, etc) makes AD abandon the holy bridge of Alessia and actually attack / defend things that give points. :p

Age, Genetics and how good your eyes are in general have huge impact on how you perceive anything IRL or on a screen.

What is an indisputable fact, is that anything above 60 FPS makes the image, movement and input smoother.

People who see no benefit above 30 FPS should most likely seek medical assistance.

I can barely see something the size of a planet (for example, an actual planet) at 10 paces. Medical science needs a few hundred years before it can help me. :p

Still, there's an upper limit to what the eye can detect, and while I'm making no claims on what that number is (I don't have any of those fancy new-fangled "qualifications"), I've seen no evidence that you can detect 120FPS when you're looking straight at it. I know peripheral vision can benefit from higher numbers and will presumable help with the smoothness.

I guess what I'm doing here is mocking gamers and their collective dumb obssession with things they know nothing about - "T3h higher numberz makes me better". A perfect example would be lag: taking the blame for the fact that you suck since 5,000 BCE.* :smile:

* Also the fact that most of those gamers don't know lag from ping. :p

    If you apply a three-colour dye stamp, can you subsequently change just one of the colours (assuming you have ESO+)?

  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is free to play on steam this weekend.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Steam yes. Haven't checked GoG and Plaza
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Oooh, just found it on steam and it's also free to play for the next 2 days. Absolutely, positively, definitely going to try and find the time to give it a try. :p

    Talking of addons, I had all my libraries in a seperate section at the bottom of the addon screen, but now they're back to being mixed in with the addons. Anyone know how I broke this?
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Dang, almost 2 hours to patch. Was the last big expansion this bad?
  • Xrixi @ Xrixi:
    was rather fast for me. 10 min tops
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Obviously the Dutch traded their weed-loaded brownies for faster download speeds. :p
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    @Rootimus That happens when the addon sorting addon is out of date and Allow Outdated is off
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Something is not right, loads of the new libs register as addons in the Addon selector addon
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Yup :sad:
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    I blame Gnatz.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    It is possible the Author of the Addon Selector needs to manually add the libs to a list of what addons the addon defines as libs
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    That sounds reasonable.

    "Hey all, we can confirm there is a combination of DLC ownership and ESO+ that is causing some of you to not receive surveys. We're working on getting this fixed as quickly as we can. Thank you for all the information! "
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    No surveys? Finally a useful bug!
