Windows 7: What Games Are You Playing?

21 Jun 2011   #1431


I have a bud with f3ar in the 3 hours or so he has been playing it he says it is a 10 out of 10. That is not a fan boy opinion. I will let him complete it and see what he thinks. I trust his judgment.

He would say the game is crap or what ever if so.. Says he likes you play a level and then have to play it as the other character. Sounds cool to me..

Some may not like it- heck I might not like it. Id rather get reviews from you guys versus gamespot or ign etc.

Thanks mickey.

I never really learned how to post the vids like that. I normally post the links- I am not sure the vid use more site bandwidth set up like you have it now and sites complain and is also why I use say imageshack to post photos. It links back to imagechack and less bandwidth needed on this site or pages and maybe folks have less page loading probs.

I can post say 7 or more screens or my animated gifs are around 2mbs each and can eat some bandwidth. I like the sites that let us post our game screens and animated gifs. I would post more vids to play on the screen like that if no probs. I do not know- I always tried to avoid being warned what ever- they might be fine and no extra bandwidth used??

Far Cry can have its own mind- 1 minute or vid it records everything nice and clean or clear- the next grass is blur. I can not stop it. Man the game is lovely in real time tho.. Well my vids on my system look better than when on youtube- its codec makes it suck.

I followed that link. I think I can post like that now- good instructions. I have pulled part of the code like that to post at so is nothing I have not done before. I more do not care to be fussed at- maybe posting vids like that is ok.

i'm not 100% sure, but i don't think there are any bandwidth issues - as far as i'm aware, the youtube vids get streamed directly from the mighty youtube servers.

there are many threads on this forum featuring countless youtube vids, including The youtube dump and What are you listening to? [5] (currently in its fifth reincarnation).

so, use them [youtube] tags! :)

Cool- thanks.

Need to get a head set- mic head phones. Then I can do talk throughs or what is called real play throughs. with out the mic etc- they are just watching someone play.

Can even get sponsors- might even give ya games or software or hardware to make the game videos. To many of said play throughs the guys cuss to much f this f that what ever sounds so 9 year old. I would not talk a lot or make much noise in my vids- but explain what might be needed.

I am no star the games are. Being disabled and poor and a gamer- ya Id love sponsors. I know it is others at youtube that game have them- be nice to be lucky I guess??? Ha ha.. Get free stuff and just to game with or mostly- sounds cool to me..

I hate gaming with guys with mics- if they are not woman and being sexy I can care less to hear them or how great they think they are or what ever else they have to say.. Guess team work would be one thing- not so in most games and if all do not have head sets what does it matter- hate them folks always on the mic or playing music what ever.. I mute folks they do not know it. I will text sometimes in game or during break. Most sound like nasal weasels- gees off the mic please- ha ha..

Thanks again.

Made this the other day.

Stalker Priboi story.

Took me like 10x tries to beat all these guys. I tried from a few locations and other side of the compound also. All the mutants and npcs with guns was tearing me up until I got in the back of this truck.

The Burers and Controllers are the worst- but the Chimera and Pseudodog dogs can jump far and high and up in the truck with me. I was still lucky to beat them all and is still like 10 running around and more after blowouts.. Pseudogiant have the stomp attack- love the suckers and they/any can get ya through walls what ever- so need not get to close to walls etc. or might get dead.

Love stalker and priboi story mod- I am the guest of honor or lunch maybe..>

Kind of wish I made the vids with out the night vision- but see better with it- so..

Although Im not a huge platformer fan, I do like a few of them.

So for those who may be interested about Game Performance;

Overall, the game itself seems to be running very well for me.
And although not a graphical masterpiece or something revolutionary in that regard, it is quite pretty. And the enviroments look very good, and are very well done.

In all honesty, I have encountered a couple minor glitches, but only very minor things.

Camerea angles can be a bit funky at times, mostly when fighting 2 or more enemies and dodging around. But, just mildly annoying at certain points, and I havent seen it too much.

The major thing was the framerate lock. The game by default is locked at 30FPS, but by changing that FPS cap to 60, it smoothed everything out for me. This is one of those must do tweaks IMHO,.

Thats all Ive encountered up to this point.
Pray tell, how did you mange to change the FPS?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

You need to Edit the .ini file at:

Documents/My Games/Alice Madness Returns/Alice Game/Config

Open the AliceEngine.ini and do a search for Smoothed.

You have 2 options here.
MaxSmoothedFrameRate=31 to MaxSmoothedFrameRate=60

OR you can also disable framerate smoothing altogther.

Change- bSmoothFrameRate=True to bSmoothFrameRate=FALSE

I found this method worked best on my setup.
In fact, I also disabled Vsync in the ini and then forced it on in the Nvidia Control Panel as well as Turning on Tripple Buffering.

Either way will let the game run at 60FPS though.

+1 Thanks for the tip. Will this also work on other games with a modifiable .ini?
