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

Is there a write-up of these videos that anyone can link to?

Write-up? As in a written article with the changes and new content?

Doubt it, the ESO community like most communities live on Youtube.

There could be one on reddit maybe? But I don't go there, zero meaningful debate.

No problem. I appreciate you posting the vids (and the effort the lady put into making them) but, like many people, my brain prefers bullet points instead of video.

I'll poke around the ESO forum when I'm next there and see if I can start piecing things together.

    Lots of spammers registering on the forum lately. If you're the one false-positive that gets caught in our anti-spam measures, please give a guild officer a shout in-game and we'll get you sorted out.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Fudge! I forgot Planetfall is out in a week
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    I need to play Age of Wonders 3 some more before I decide whether or not to get Planetfall. The screenshots on Steam look pretty.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    I'm in a beta test for a ~thing~. The NDA I signed explicitly prohibits me from even telling anyone what the ~thing~ is, which is fair enough. Expect, despite there being a sign-up and a limited number of places, the ~thing~ is right there online for everyone to get (the beta started a few minutes ago). #SheerGenius / #DumbAsARock
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    NDA's almost always include that and a clause stating you can't even say you are in a Beta or that you are under NDA
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Still kinda silly to make it public knowledge. :happy:
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    (By "kinda silly" I mean "dumb as f***).
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    NDAs are one of those things Admin don't give 2 fucks about unless you break it, so they are never tailored to the situation
  • Xrixi @ Xrixi:
    Well hope you enjoy the beta :happy:
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    I'll try, but it's nothing exciting like a game, or anything.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Warning: zero-day exploit found in Steam.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    This is a far more common problem than anyone on the User and Enthusiast hacker side even realizes. I suspect we'll see more of these sort of things going forwards. Nobody cares to fix anything anymore.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    How's Planetfall, Essi?
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Fun, but unforgiving on Normal. It also has that random dislike bs from Civ
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Easier to mod than Civ though and you won't run into someone with a dislike for you every game
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Winter coat needed in August? English summer confirmed.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Yay for ZOS QA! - Event tickets are hit and miss; zone chat is full of people not getting theirs.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    And my thread was locked for "baiting".
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Reporting a problem to ZOS == baiting.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    How about now, Essi?
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    @Rootimus Can edit now, which sort of accomplishes the same things I guess.
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Not really - I'll poke around in the admin panel some more.
