    CP77 has genuine game mechanics problems, but lots of people's complaints are stemming from the fact they want to fit the game into a mold of what they imagine it should be like instead of letting the game inform them on how its systems are intended to be used. Someone has played Deus Ex, someone has played some immersive sim, and suddenly CP77 is bad because it doesn't copy the "right" play style that they are used to. The real problems get overlooked for grog whining. It was the same with the codex reaction to Witcher 3, so this shouldn't be surprising.

    Yeah, I didn't really research what "Ignore Film Grain" does, but because it was grouped with the sharpen setting, I assumed it serves to clear the noise introduced by the sharpening itself. If you apply a strong sharpening filter to an image you will see noise around the edges where one color passes to another. I assumed this is what "Ignore Film Grain" fights. Maybe it also has an effect if your ingame film grain is turned on, because both are post-processing effects on the frame, and I assume Nvidia Control Panel's post processing is applied after all the ingame post processing.

    Do report if you find a setting that works well. Also if you are interested check the manual upscaling method I described. It works so well for me for 1080-to-1440 upscale, and the game run so smoothly now, that I think it's worth trying out for anyone who is running at around 40fps to bring him to a 60fps. I'll compare some screenshots later to confirm how much visual difference there is between the native 1440p vs the 1080p upscale + sharpening. Maybe it will stand out more in still screenshots, but ingame I barely feel any difference.

    BTW GrafvonMoltke , this may unironically be it. I'm running on SSD and have absolutely zero LoD jump problems, though I still have object, shadow and light pop-in from the distance. These are the ingame values though and tweaking them while probably doable is something I don't see a point in until the game is at least somewhat optimized by CDPR. Here is the nvidia Witcher 3 guide which explains how you can get rid of pop-in by changing values manually in the config files: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforc...hunt-graphics-performance-and-tweaking-guide/

    Imagine how many times this guy has been miraculaously healed if no one in the church is even noticing :lol:


    IMO the female V sounds leagues better than the male. I'm playing a female nomad now after a couple of hours trying out a male street kid. I haven't checked but am willing to bet that the English V/O is the worst of all options, like in Witcher 3. Once again they can't afford (or maybe made a wrong decision on it?) good talent for English, but they have the best actors available for German, French, Russian, Spanish, etc.
    It got invaded by reddit and 4chan crowds who think nuDeusEx is the crowning achievement of gaming and have the vocabulary of a 3.5 year-old.

    My impression pretty much. I am really impressed by what was achieved in terms of 3D character acting performance though. Even in Witcher 3 CDPR had done so much with so little available to them technically, getting through via voice acting, gestures and what little face animations they had everything they couldn't get through with real actors. Now that they have so much more face capture and motion capture, the cliche about 3d models coming to life is much less of an exaggeration. Also, I'm hot on Evelyn Parker :lol:

    "Ta panta rhei kai ouden menei"

    "They took our waifus, gamers rise!" Yeah, it's buggy, but come on.

    They are shy of the camera. :lol:

    Search this thread for "44 Khz" or something like that. I think it's in the first 10 pages or so.
    There it is:

    I suppose it would be possible to simulate these responses. I would gladly give up my body to become VR anime girl or something. Real body need to sleep, eat, drink, piss, shit, smells, gets dirty, can get hurt etc. Yeah, not gonna happen because full brain simulation is about as possible as FTL, but would be nice.

    I've played about 4h and this game is completely fucking broken.

    Bugs I've seen:
    • Floating cops
    • My car blowing up for no reason whilst stationary in the street
    • An entire gang despawning right in front me
    • Now can't load up my latest game... it flat out crashes back to the desktop, so I'll probably lose quite a bit of progress
    They shouldn't have released the game in this state. Aside from the bugs it seems interesting enough to warrant a playthrough.

    Managed to find time to play it for 2 hours, on my i5-6600k and GTX 1060 6BG it runs great on medium to high details. The world looks great but I cant really comment much in depth about gameplay since Im still early in the game and real life issues will prevent me from giving it a more extensive game time.

    Just to say I am one of the people who really liked Witcher 3 so I did come in this game with cautious optimism. Basically expecting beautiful but shallow world, shitty combat and interesting quests, writing and NPC. From what I did see it, it seems thats exactly what I got only even more shallow RPG elements.

    Still I will continue playing and hopefully at the end the good will outweigh the bad.

    English VA for female V is a good and known talent. The thing is, she's mostly doing anime and Japanese games dub.

    I'm talking from the subreddit's perspective here. Romances were half of the discussion there, as is usually the case with RPGs in places like that. The disappointment is bound to be huge.

    Actually african tribal (and tribal in general) warfare is highly ritualized affair that scarcely results in mass death, because it turns out tribal societies cnnot sustain high loses wihttu collapsing. Or at least it used to be, untill white man taught them to to war properly.

    Is it true that this game had a budget of 300 million dollars? Because if so, that money went to Keanu, not the game.

    I imagine what you're proposing would be the next research step once compatibility issue regarding mind transfer is solved. Remember, it wasn't that long ago when storing actual consciousness and not just a copy of it became possible, and it's only in that one ending in 2077 where transferring it back to a body was a success.

    Hey GrafvonMoltke have you tried flicking "Slow HDD mode" on in the options?

    Thank you very much for replaying.
    I tried that fix yesterday. It did clear the weird reverb/water membrane muffled sound effects. Unfortunately it did not fix the muffled, barely audible front and rear channel sounds.

    Thanks to muh activists who wanted the game getting released as soon as possible CD Projekt will have to crunch more than ever if they want to get the bugs from all version fixed.

    The police spawns are fucking retarded. The moment you commit a crime a squad of policemen spawns behind you back. It can literally be the same second you shoot someone - they will spawn 5 meters behind your back.

    You're making a product to sell and you either do the job or get the fuck out or let the marketers do theirs, but those cost extra

    Since I don't play Japanese games (just can't find anything that I like, no racism :D) nor watch anime (same reasons), I haven't grown used to her, and her voicing is perfect for the kind of libertarian anti-establishment nomad character I wanted.

    Regarding disappointment in the subreddit, I'm coming to think the game that would sell millions upon milllions will be the one that magically finds people real-life girlfriends.

    I guess you've already gone through the usual "Realtek HD Audio Manager" or equivalent Control Panel applet? If no, then I'd start by resetting everything to default there. If playing with headphones, turn off all the "headphone-specific" options in that applet and in the game - especially "Windows Sound"->your speakers' (with a green checkmark) Properties -> "Spatial Sound" tab - set the dropdown to "Off".

    If not playing with headphones, try them for a moment to see if the effect goes away.

    I have an old Creative 5+1 speakers setup, of which I only use the left and right speaker and the subwoofer (into which all the speakers need to be connected). In my Windows Sound / Speakers Setup I have this selected:
