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


#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.


#319

From the pagefile discussion up above, degrading performance eventually resulting in a crash also sounds like a memory leak. When the game starts running poorly, I’d try restarting it and seeing if it helps.


#320

Only been playing a few hours and done some random things, but no bugs encountered so far on Xbox One. I figured they’d resolve the weird sound bug I was seeing in the closed beta, but I was a little bit worried they wouldn’t. I don’t like the character creation options as much as the first game, but I can deal with it.


#321

I’m getting very bad framerate drops on the ps4, fairly frequently.


#322

Glitches notwithstanding, the city looks pretty amazing, and the gameplay is solid. Lots of very busy bits though, between the detailed environments, the inventory/character screens, etc., and the aesthetic choices they’ve made in terms of how the colors shift during screen/interface transitions. And yeah, the whole set up and political context is still whackadoodle. But the pew pew is good.


#323

Downloading now. I had to google how to buy it. The Ubisoft Launcher says it is available but then does not link to anything. You have to buy through the Ubisoft website which then successfully linked it to the launcher but it seems kinda convoluted.

All this to bypass the EPIC store, which I do not want to use for Fortnite addicted step-kids reasons.


#324

I was able to buy it through Uplay.


#325

I bought it through UPlay, too, although I also experienced the bit where there’s no confirmation you bought anything. It just opens a web page in their store, which has led some people to multiple purchases.

Uplay is pretty decent all around, but it’s not the very best storefront :)


#326

I think if you use the version of Uplay that you get when you installed a game you bought via Steam, it doesn’t have the store capability built in. That’s the case in my installation; I had to go to the Ubi website to buy Div 2.


#327

The game is an amazing visual upgrade over the first one. Not just on tech level but also the way they designed the individual mission locations and the color palette and most importantly, lighting. They really nailed that, especially during mid-day. I shouldn’t be surprised of course because Ubisoft usually nails lighting in their games but it’s always nice to see it done well.


#328

My memory line in Task Manager is flat as a board, right up until the game crashes. I’ve gone two hours before a crash, ten minutes, and then three hours. I don’t think it’s memory.


#329

I have been seriously considering this for Single Player, full immersion, story, but watching streamers on Twitch is such a turn off. They are so fast, on to the next mission, whats this loot, kill that guy, lets go here…no immersion…

Im thinking I might be making the wrong decision. Thoughts?
