damn, glad i got in early. I scraped the change jar to get it
Can anyone tell what is the name of the tool they are using in game to overlay the fps and cpu and gpu load and ram use?
HWInfo + RTSS.
press ` key ( next to 1 ) then type "com_showfps 1"
also another tip
right click on doom anf go properties, then see the option for changing the launch settings
there are options for skipping the load screens and other crap...
+com_skipIntroVideo 1 ( skip the long and shit load screens )
+menu_advanced_AllowAllSettings 1 ( opens up nightmare difficulty )
+com_skipKeyPressOnLoadScreens 1 ( allows to skip the ingame cut scenes if you want )
+set m_smooth 0 ( for high dpi mice, this is essential )
when putting them in, just a "space" between each command i believe is the way to do it.
WHere do we enter those strings? Im getting annoyed waiting for it to load intro too!
here you go buddy
Can we get an OCAU steam contacts going for this please ? would love to make a multiplayer team ( yes you can group up in squads and play )
Doom 4 also has these sorts of metric displays built into it.
It's in one of the menus, right at the bottom.
yup, it shows a lot of stuff. low is pretty much just the fps where nightmare shows everything like frame time graphs, API (this case opengl 4.5), CPU and GPU usage, and other ancillary information.
Thanks. Ultra shows a lot of stats on the CPU/GPU!
Can even turn off the com_showfp 1
Am now, thanks!
waiting for the vulkan patch.
GTX770 at 1200 res struggling... one of the maps it drops as low at 6 FPS.
firstly make sure you're running the latest drivers. They're a big difference with lower end cards
secondly you can follow the instructions here to tweak the game a bit
Seemed to be a lot smoother after doing that for me even though they were for the beta and a few of the commands didn't seem to exist in console.
Thirdly if anyone's getting crashes where the game just exits with no warnings/errors back to desktop, try turning off any audio control panel software you have running. Xonar essence stx control panel was mine. Stopped getting kicked after i did that.
I'm loving the sounds and the music. God damn love the music. But has anyone else noticed the audio mix in general isn't that great.
There seems to be a very high amount of bass. My sub is constantly rumbling. Doesn't do this in any other game, movie or music.
There appears to be no footstep sounds?
The audio balance between rears and fronts seems off. I hear a lot of the music in the rears, rather than the fronts..?
I'm playing on Xbox One... Just wondering if anyone else notices oddness with the audio mix? Any other media is fine.
Other than that, absolutely loving this game. Could be my GOTY.
anyone else getting box textures, as in a checkerboard on everything.
game runs fine
70 90 fps at 1600p everything on ultra even 8x aa on but no matter what setting I try it screws up with checkerboard and some weird multi shadows on guns.
this is on a fury x....daughter who is using my ol 290x does not have any of these issues both using the same settings and drivers.
could be the game hates HBM ram....anyone else with some form of fury playing?
as for the game itself so far I am finding it a bit boring shoot bash bash bash shoot, monsters do the normal ID thing of reappearing in exactly the same scripted place all the time.
anyway haven't played a lot maybe it gets better, I got mine from green man gaming got 2 copies plus 2x doom 3 bfg for 60 a piece I think
I have the latest drivers.
Geforce Experience doesn't have doom in the menu so I can't choose optimal settings etc but I might play around with it.
On a single 980ti, I get 60fps, on ultra with AA disabled @ 4k.. very rarely I get slowdowns to about 50fps indoors.. Outdoor areas are no slowdowns..
Performance is excellent, all things considered..
I get significantly worse performance indoors when I have shadowplay recording. Only game I've experienced that in.
from the redit page
stop it crashes to windows with low resources with 8Gb of ram, only works for 720p, probably need 16Gb for 1080p
steam launch options : +com_skipIntroVideo "1" +exec spec.cfg
open notepad, and save a file as spec.cfg in /steamapps/common/doom beta/base/ with the following inside :
Bit confused, I'm running 1440p with 8gb of RAM and it doesn't crash to desktop
