    this was ... lucky...

    fortnite and most every other game has utterly horrible ping compensation... someone with literally 20ms ping vs someone with 60-80ms may as well be akin to the old days of playing against highspeed 50-80ms ping users and being on dialup at 300+

    but sometimes, things work... proper and shots lead actually properly land.

    It oozes with atmosphere.
    There are some graphical...I don't know if glitches is the right word, but whatever, that taint a bit the overall feel, for example you enter a room and it continues to rain, inside.
    But, overall no thing serious.
    They have a DLC and if it goes on sale I will buy it, even though I haven't played much of the main game yet. It feels so good! Especially in first person view.
    Little touches like the see through windows on the floor of the vehicle, the auto appearing camera view floating in the cockpit, showing you what lies below when you are trying to land/park.
    Not sure why the camera is originally locked though, so by pressing X you get to use the mouse to look around instead of trying to drive/pilot and it feels so much better. (you can drive with the keyboard just fine).
    Very relaxing game so far.

    I installed v1.3 ofCB2077.
    I don't have enough experience to talk about it, but it sure looks pretty.
    I decided to have a look at a couple different settings.
    720p Ultra details looks lovely, though not as crisp as my normal 1440p for obvious reasons. Still higher framerate.
    The two screenshots are with that settings.
    I also tried raytracing and while the framerate obviously dropped, it was still perfectly playable, at 720p. Still not something I am going to try for a full game. If I ever get a more powerful PC then yes.

    Yes, Myst Masterpiece Edition from GOG. It's the 1999 or something remastered version. It supposed to have some different graphics or something, no idea what as I am not exactly a pro Myst player to compare them.
    There are newer remakes/remastered versions, but this appears to be the closest to the original that I want to experience.

    No, it wasn't. I don't know what I did then, but yesterday when I tried it again, the framerate was at between 13 and 18. Not playable for this type of game.
    This with raytracing on, all raytracing options on (lighting, shadows etc) .
    Since this is a GTX1660S, not exactly surprising.

    I still don't know what happened/I did, the last time and got higher framerate.

    Here is the result.

    Streaming through the game Call of Cthulhu for the first time. What a great ADVENTURE game. It's basically an old school graphic adventure only in FPP format. There are a couple of action sequences, but this is, thankfully, not a survival game.

    Nvidia doesn't allow DLSS on the GTX 1660 Super, or I guess any non RTX card. Probably they can't handle it or something.
    It's BS, that's what it is.
    AMD's equivalent, FSR works just fine.
    Shocking.
    Thank you AMD.
    Here I am running Cyberpunk 2077, with dynamic FSR between 50 and 100%, set fps 60, at 1440p.
    I also tried it at static FSR, with 50% reaching 90-100fps and 80% between 53 and 70 fps.
    Bless you AMD!

    How are the glitches? Have you come across any as of yet? (Despite the several patches)

    I haven't played the game enough to know the full extend of said glitches/bugs. I stick mostly to casually exploring the city and the occasional fight against gangs. While obviously not perfect, it is the first game that I remember which gives the sense of a real city in a video game. If you start looking at it then yes it is mostly a facade , but still does its job. In a similar way to GTA V. If nothing else, it gives a taste of things to come when eventually we will get cities like this where you can enter and interact with every building. At least I hope we get something like this within the next 10 years.
    Anyway, to actually answer your question, yes I encounter some glitches, but they are just that, glitches which are minor and unimportant. The game is good as it is. Talking about the PC version from GOG.

    I am about to enter what appears to be a peaceful and friendly hotel.
    I am sure it will be a very relaxing and not threatening environment.
