This may just be the worst AAA title FPS SP I have ever played.

 

There is absolutey nothing to say about it besides that it looks good sometimes.

Just roll with it!  Said the exact same thing when BF3 came out..  
Thanks for the heads up, guess I'll never switch from Garena+BF2 >.>
 

So, what about Call of Duty?  I think the last time I actually played multiplayer was COD4.  BO2 is somewhat of a killing frenzy, just run in and spray bullets.  

 

So anyone ever play AvA/S4 League?

Trying DXTory again, what should my settings be, write speed, etc. I have a 7200RPM Seagate Barracuda 1TB.

Ahhhh winter, now my processor idles at 28 Celsius now. I wonder what would happen if I got a rad and somehow strapped it outside and used my PC in the middle of the night. It would probably idle at 10C.

Regular usage and surfing and all that has mine at 32C, granted I'm in a room with very good A/C so it doesn't ever get too cold or too hot in here.

It was 12C in my house before we decided to turn on the heater... 15C on my CPU... I thought the reading was wrong.

Damn, lowest it's gotten in mine is about 65°F or so.

What is the amount of cache your drive has?

 

Ultimately depends of the CPU/HDD tax rate of the game being played.  Games that do not load the entire scene in RAM will make more reads in the game, which will require you to compress more.

 

Compressing more usually involves taxing the CPU further, and reduces the quality.  The thing you will really have to look out for is the bitrates for the video and audio.

 

Lossless (most HDD taxing) = Huffyuv (takes little CPU, but still somewhat heavy on HDD) > H.264 (CPU demanding) > DivX (somewhat CPU, lower HDD)

 

High action games will need a high bitrate/motion period!  No skimping, otherwise there will be artifacts and overall blurriness.

Since you're asking, you might be suffering FPS drops?  :D  I think since your PC is new, you may need to compress some for that HDD.

 

LAME MP3 for audio (not going to impact quality on Youtube), and the PIC Video MJPEG Codec V3 (you can find this free somewhere *wink*)


Whats great about dxtory is that it works with  almost any VFW compatible codec.

 

Got a few SSD cache drives for $30 each (cyber monday).  Nice addition for the towers in my home

 


EDIT:  Look at this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8SIwa7XbKw

I used to use this MJPEG for large Premiere projects, looks pretty decent for youtube.

I doesn't work AGAIN. Just crashes my game. I have 64MB of cache.

Does FRAPS crash it too?

When do you hook the program to the game?

 

Some games will crash if you hook in the menus.

FRAPS works perfectly, and it does an auto-hook when I launch the game.

Can you use anything other than the default FRAPS video encoder?


I think FRAPS has the least issues with hooking compared to everyone else. Just last time I used FRAPS, I was stuck with their poor encoder...

I have the FRAPS trial and it works perfectly. My friend has a full version of DXTory and it works perfectly for him.
