The Division 2 - Make Washington D.C. Great Again


#299

I only have 5 hours so maybe not a great baseline, but I haven’t crashed once. I don’t have the latest and greatest video card drivers either. I tend to wait until something makes me want to update them.


#300

There is a reproducible crash if someone else in your group uses any drone variant. Massive knows about it.


#301

I haven’t had time to do any research, what version is best in life?

Regular , Gold , Ultimate?


#302

My recommendation is to go Regular since the “Early Start” of the other editions ends tomorrow when the game opens up to regulars.

Gold and Ultimate just give a bunch of cosmetics, a few exclusive missions, and the ability to unlock some missions a week before the Plebs.

Most actual content, extra modes, and gameplay should be provided to all players for free over the course of the next year (or longer).


#303

As Ark said, the standard version is by far the best bang for your buck right now.

I like some of the cosmetics from the ultimate edition, but I have also found a bunch of good vanity items just roaming around the world, searching backpacks and boxes. And I replaced the exotic weapon it gives you after about three hours of play.


#304

Bought, added all the people here I didn’t have as friends, will be giving it a go on this weekend.


#305

That’s crazy. Who makes your 1080ti?

Running the benchmark at 2560x1440p on Ultra-ish settings on my FE 1080ti I get 63 fps in the benchmark. Changing to DX12 bumps that to 69 fps, a 10% increase.


#306

Added a bunch of people who posted in here, so if you get a request from GingerYellow, don’t be surprised. I’m on PC. Won’t be able to play until Saturday though.

Seems to run a lot better than either of the betas did for me, though that could be more to do with my system than anything else. I had a lot of weird stuttering playing the betas.


#307

I told Windows to self-manage the size of my page file. I was able to get past the hotel mission, so my opinion of the game has drastically increased. I’m trucking along now!


#308

Can I ask how you did this? I played a tiny bit of the beta and I crashed twice. I just updated my video drivers but I’m not sure if that’ll do the trick. I want to try everything I can to prevent crashes before I start playing late tonight.


#309

I’m seriously impressed by the amount of work that went into some of these main story missions. No spoilers of course, but wow the detail of these interiors is something else. I hope you get to return to some of these areas later in the game.


#310

This guide will walk you through it. I had been manually managing it and apparently hadn’t set it high enough. When I changed it back to let Windows handle it, it worked a lot better.


#311

The crashing issue could be related to the use of the airborne turret, according to a developer posting on Reddit. At least they suggested not using it to see if that ‘improved’ on the game.

Unfortunately the level 30 guy I group with runs with it all the time, since it melts enemies, so we kinda need it.


#312

Have him switch to Assault Turret for now. It’s nearly as good, and it won’t crash you ;)

I do love the Drone, but I only run it solo.


#313

We running both already, for maximum crash :-)

I’m trying to get “off” the airborne and instead using the gas launcher, but enemies run out of the smoke so quickly.


#314

I looted my first skill mods at level 10. I’ve seen plans for them at the vendors, too.

I switched to the rollerball of death from the firefly, and I’m enjoying it much more. I found it hard to get the 'fly to target armored bosses in the heat of battle, which limited the utility. The seeker mine is much easier to use.


#315

In between new puppy crises, I’ve gotten to level 3! The game disconnected me once, and hard locked once, though. Gotta check all the settings, etc.


#316

First crash while looting a loot box near the end of a mission.

This game is not ready yet.


#317

Well this has been an outstanding experience so far - game looks amazing, performance is even better than in beta and I haven’t had a single audio glitch so far.

Also, LMGs are the best thing since sliced bread.


#318

My performance in the game today got worse as time went on. Don’t know if it was due to an increase in people as the day went on or my PC just having difficulty churning through it. I eventually had to hard crash it myself because it got locked in an inventory screen and just kept loading forever.

I’m DantesWitness if anyone wants to team up.
