PC Gamers post your experience so far

#1 Edited by pornstorestiffi (4905 posts) -

Hey duders.

I just finished downloading Future Soldier on Steam today. But haven't played it yet, other than setting the video settings. Seems like a lot of people are having issues from all ends of the spectrum from controls to framerate issues to weird graphical anomalies. How have your experience been so far, is it really as bad as it seems.

I haven't really had any problems so far. Apart from the odd port problems. But, tis what it comes to; PC ports...

Are you playing with DX11 enabled?

Yes, I believe I am.

Well i guess if your running DX11 and you say you haven't had any issues. It can't be all bad.

I just loaded up the game from Steam and it runs like garbage. Not to mention i can't look or aim using the mouse, it doesn't respond at all.

It's the worst PC port I've played in a long time. Worse than launch day Dead Island.

  1. The mouse doesn't work! Holy shit, how did they release this?!
  2. It screws with my monitor so that the game runs with a 1" black border around the picture. (edit: nevermind, this was a gpu scaling problem)
  3. The little I played of the first level ran like garbage on my modern PC.

edit: after downloading a patch and updating to the latest ATI beta driver, the game runs great.

I played through the prologue and the first "level" of the game.

I'm having some sort of weird mouse-sensitivity issue that's making aiming a big sluggish, but... it's working fine for me. So far, the game feels better than I feared from some reviews I've read. *shrug*

That said, I'm going to wait a couple of weeks to play the through the game in co-op instead.

Game runs like shit and almost every matchmaking game starts with a disconnect from the server.

How this statement is relevant to this thread in any way is beyond me.

Yeah, there's an article on Co-optimus about how aweful it was launched on pc. Especially M/K controls I guess. They also claim UBI is supposed to be on it and trying to fix all the weird problems. Playing on 360 myself, and although I loved the original GR games, this isn't on par at all imo. I always hope and give 'em a try.....sigh. :(.

@Floppypants: @Mnemoidian: @Xolare: Have you guys tried messing around with the v-sync option? I don't have the game, so I can't confirm this, but sometimes v-sync can mess up mouse movement in a game.

I turned it off the second I launched it and it's still terrible.

@JCTango: Yeah, I turned it off and mouse movement seems smoother. After patching and updating drivers, the game runs nicely on my PC. I'm glad I bought it on PC too because this game clearly benefits from mouse & keyboard precision.

I'm still holding out for patch 1.4. Even though 1.3 made some good improvements, like letting me fucking move the camera, and not run like complete ass. But yes i agree, worst PC port i have played in many years.

That brought nothing to the table, so great job.

They have fixed the input issues, with the 1.3 update. Many are waiting for the 1.4 miracle patch now, thats supposed to fixed performance related things, and also make the game look better when playing in 1080p. Some people are having weird graphical issues where the game looks like a jaggy upscaled mess when playing in 1080p.
