    Positional audio. PUBG can't do it with the same engine either. It just fails horribly at vertical sound positioning.

    Epic has tried to fix it earlier in the year, by using different step sounds depending if they are coming from above or below, but yeah its not a particular good solution.

    I have a decent enough connection that the updates generally are over within the hour but I'm over this as well. Basically jump into BR and then you just think 'sweet I just updated three gig and there's new skins and a weapon. Great'. Plus the launcher has no inbuilt speed limit option so it saturates the connection whilst you update.
    Order of BR:
    1. Die lots
    2. Watch streamers pwn
    3. Turn off graphics
    4. Get gooder

    Speaking of updates, can someone explain to me what colossal fucking moron team decided it was good to have download speed, read speed, and write speed graphs, and not display the total size of the fucking download?

    Vertical sound positioning in EVERY engine sucks balls. 2d positional is generally not so hard (ignoring occlusion), as it basically boils down to slightly delaying the timing that a sound is sent to each ear, but unfortunately vertical is much harder... At least until we get a third ear on top of our heads or something.

    I haven't played much fortnite at all, but I have a suspicion that a fair chunk of the issues people have, is that the sound positioning may well be based on your camera position, not your character position.

    Taken from: https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/news/fortnite-battle-royale-state-of-development-v4

    Listener Position
    We’ll be changing the way the listener behaves for 2.5. Volume attenuation will be moved to the player’s location, and panning will still be calculated from the camera. Previously, panning and volume attenuation were based on the camera’s location. This led to a lot of confusion when moving the camera around to locate a chest, as the volume would dip in and out as the camera swung around.

    Seems you'd be bang on!

    Watch Shroud & Ninja on twitch, they r insane.. might learn a few tricks for building, but the main thing is to rebind builds keys to something like Q/E/T or Z/X/C etc so hand doesnt have to move so far.

    I suck @ building but shooting alone sometimes is enough to go well.. when against a good builder/shooter I got no chance.

    NInja is by far a better builder than Shroud TBF - Shroud is just godly at shooting games :p
    I haven't rebound my keys yet - but I just press Q then scroll, suspect its not efficient at all.

    how about they stop scapegoating and focus on more important issues like mental health?

    or like the guy said in that video, parent better.. instead of banning the game how about you get off your candy crush and be a parent. Same argument that came up when they tried to ban r18+ games.

    though the stuff they talk about and describe is so vague...like all the stuff they talk about is in practically every shooting game.

    the experts are dumbasses!
