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.

    Melmoth certainly had it's wtf moments. like in the end when Ronaldo got interrupted by some spectator running onto the field as he was about to shoot. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth as someone who didn't really have much invested in either of the teams, i was only hoping for a good and entertaining match. it had tension and never felt boring, so i can't complain. (4 Hours ago)

    MrWhite If I'm disappointed in anything the Liverpool players did, is that they didn't chin that horrible bastard Ramos. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I hope Karius manages to somehow mend himself, but unfortunately, if you want to kick on and improve as a team, you can't have a liability, which he now surely is. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I mean, it wasn't one bad mistake, it was two absolutely ridiculous schoolboy ones. It's been a big problem for Liverpool for too many years now. Undoes all the good work. (5 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, its normal, but this was a final of all finals. Only one bigger and thats the world cup. For Karuis, that was probably one howler too far for his team mates. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: it's normal in sports that teammates protect/comfort the guys making the big mistakes. see it all the time in penalty shotouts and such. (5 Hours ago)
