    GTA V should of had an additional peripheral for... um you know the scenes. ;)

    Clearly you never overclocked your XBOX!

    Actually easiest way to play Crysis 1-3 is on Origin Access, they are all current vault games.

    It's Elder Scrolls Online.
    Finding it quite decent, feel a bit lonely in a world full of people as I don't have anyone to go around with.

    Everything UI is customisable with the mods I have (running 13 of them currently) I can position things anywhere to my liking which is a bonus, I added the minimap, moved the chat box, added player health bars for dungeons, quest tracker etc etc etc.

    Also as a extra I run a android button app so I can press a icon to do something in game I'll show in the game thread as well making myself a launcher thingy with useful buttons all in one place.

    I usually run my games at 6030x1200 (Bezel corrected) on 3 Dell U2411's IPS WFP monitorrs, this is running 5760x1200 as windowless as the game doesn't adjust for bezels at true fullscreen.
    Not too annoying with the edges I don't notice it with this plus it lets me see that little extra.

    Graphics don't look that great? Is that with detail down? Or just bit simpler to deal with the size of it all?

    Graphics are on max.

    As It's a mmo and been out for a few years it wouldn't be like Final Fantasy XV etc in graphics.
    I think it was released after Skyrim was out.
    Some areas do look nice though.
    There are some tweaks to make it better.
    Here are some users screenshots.
    After a week haven't left Summerset island yet except a couple of related areas.
    Will plan to explore the rest of the world in time.
    I guess some screenshots don't exactly capture detail that well from what I found.

    My FPS is about 20-30 in the zones, in some buildings i'm hitting 100+

    Wonder if there are any ultra hd texture packs for that game, looks like a mix of graphics between WOW and Witcher 3. Looks nice tho

    From what I read it depends on the area to the detail, as with newer expansions the quality improved.
    I would have thought Summerset would be decent.
    People are also talking about Nvidia built in and SweetFX Reshade etc.

    I'm going to have a look at what I can find as I'm interested why some screens from that thread look gorgeous.

    Just found a graphics extender mod pack here.

    Yup was gonna reccomend you take a look at nexusmods for texture packs. Only thing i hate about that site is the download speeds are trash sometimes, so if there is a 5-10gb texture pack it will take days to download.

    I just put in a reshade and this is what it looks like now.
    This was taking a min apart.
    While looking gorgeous now framerate has tanked to 15FPS on the Geysers at one point.

    May not use reshade depending.
    I'll play around and see if I can keep the colour correction without the performance loss.

    I noticed my system had reverted to non overclock on a failed bios boot so loaded the profile I saved, I used a guide for my cpu I found on youtube by someone and had to put the clock a little lower than he did.
    Overclock works but the bios fails to boot sometimes.
    It's a 2.6ghz xeon running at about 4ghz.

    I have been monitoring my resources the slowdowns are cpu bound mainly single core speed than graphics as when it happens my graphics card dips to about 60-80% used instead of 100%.
    Running the overclock again as above I am getting 30+ FPS where I would drop to low 20's or those random 15's.

    I tweaked the reshade graphics also.
    I took off the blur and general light screen effect and now the game looks great.
    I think it's better without the blur which was loosing some detail in textures.

    I also tweaked the UI and minimalized it a bit more so magick, health and stamina only show when they are less than 100% unlike the screenshot below.
    Quest tracker now only has the selected category open and minimap mostly the same.
    The second quick slot on the left I disabled as I don't use it, don't use quick slots currently.
    This way I can enjoy the game more without screen clutter.

    So here is a couple images now the second one I had the UI off as I mapped that command to ]
    Once I see some really nice stuff in game I'll take screenies for you all.
    Game looks a bit nicer than the screens, for some reason screens never true to true detail that I actually am seeing even in texture quality.

    Still in the Summerset first Island which is mostly the forest of the first image.
    Did pop over to another for a sec to cash tickets in.
    Also looked at clothing styles, this game what you pick up doesn't really matter on clothing, there are pieces that get added to a style and you can style as a override on what you pick up which is nice.

    Anything you want me to show just ask and I'll grab a screen of it.
