State of Decay 2 on PC in 1080p

State of Decay 2 on PC in 1080p

The PC version of State of Decay 2 is smoother than the Xbox One X version, as long as you don't try to play the game in 4K (even our GTX 1080 Ti cannot hold a steady framerate with ultra settings). The problem is that the game's resolution cannot be modified when playing in full screen, which means we have to change our desktop resolution every time we want to play the game on our 4K TV. We've seen a few drops in 1440p but our experience was smooth overall in 1080p. Image quality takes a bit of a hit in this resolution though, especially if you're playing on a 4K TV. Let's hope the developers will realize this isn't really acceptable, as other Windows Store game do propose the option to change the resolution (Sea of Thieves being one of them for example).

It's a shame to see Xbox exclusives do badly optimized when a game like God of War has just been released on PS4. The One X is a jewel hardware-wise but software... oh man...

There's a heavy post-fx film-grain effect ?

What OSD are you using to display framerate in the top right corner?

Also, the video seems to stutter occasionally as if framerate was dropping, but it still shows 60 on the OSD.

Mirillis Action! is the software we use to display the framerate but another PC was used to make the recording while playing.

    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (15 Hours ago)

    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (15 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (15 Hours ago)

    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (16 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (17 Hours ago)

    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (17 Hours ago)
