@brad Hello. Not sure if you're aware about this but another fix for better performance has just been discovered. Original post about it is here. Basically, it's adding -window-mode exclusive -screen-fullscreen to the game launch options (the extra fullscreen bit is the part that's new).

Also, the Digital Foundry guys found that disabling vsync in game and then setting vsync to fast in the nvidia settings for the game improved things further. Hardly any skips for me now and my framerate is through the roof!

Spread the good word!

@brad Some stuff I found helpful, especially early game:

You can ctrl click instead of dragging items (also works for dropping stuff).

Meat, grilled neck tail and raspberries are a great combo for lots of health.

Weight of weapons affects stamina e.g. a club is a better melee weapon than an axe as it’s a lot lighter.

You can choose different colours for your shields when crafting them by pressing the small style button in the shield description section.

Great stream!

@eroq: Right. I’d say it’s more of an exploration/adventure game, though. It’s not really any more of a survival game than BotW is, if you think about it; and I don’t think it should really be put in the same category as pure survival games, like Rust etc. Whatever it is, I love it.

@vinny's untimely death at sea could have been avoided if only he moved his crosshair a millimetre lower for it to hover over the ladder; would have been able to use it then. Agonisingly close! Crosshair is your friend in this game.

@brad: I’m with you, Brad. I love the look of this game and and it oozes atmosphere. I also think this is the best adventure/exploration game since BotW; been soloing now for over 25 hours and feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface.

Great fucking game.

Here’s something I found out hours and hours into it: you kick things in the direction of your cursor. You can also control the power of the kick by how far the cursor is from your character; very helpful when trying to move explosives etc around the level.

@roomrunner: Yep, the music in Deep Rock Galactic is great. The whole game is just top notch.

@brad@rorie Great Quick Look!

Some tips I found quite useful: You can also cook the turkeys (whilst dead or alive) with the torches you get buy whipping those fireplaces; a nice way to get some health without using bombs. Also, you can rope down to spikes without getting pierced; makes getting stuff in those spike pits way easier (I believe you could do that in the first game, although I only found out about that tip whilst playing this new one).

Happy Spelunky 2ing!
