  1. Does changing the bit depth and/or the frequency(e.g 16bit 44100Hz instead of 24bit 48000Hz) improve things?

    Just Cause 3

    This sounds like a bug related to the physics more than one related to graphical settings, but just in case, have you tried: -setting everything to the lowest settings and trying to reproduce the bug? -setting everything to the highest settings and trying to reproduce the bug? If the bug is solved in either situation then it is indeed related to graphical settings, and you should therefore try to change each setting individually until you find the culprit. I'm impressed that you paid the (hefty) premium to get a laptop with G-Sync and don't even know what it is :D Check out Nvidia's website to get a proper explanation, it's a great feature. To answer your question, if you have G-Sync on, it is not necessary to enable V-sync, and it shouldn't make a difference if it's turned on. Thoug I'd personally turn it off.

    cs source IS NOT DRM FREE

    What's with the aggressivity? Mirh is trying to offer solutions.
  4. That isn't entirely true. When rendering at a framerate higher than the monitor's refresh rate, the monitor will present frames that are newer at every update than if there was only a single frame rendered every 1/60th (for 60Hz) of a second. At any rate, http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Frame_rate_(FPS) already provides info on capping framerate.
  5. If we were to add those infos I think it would be best to put them under an expandable tab (like button prompts and light bar support are in the Input section), otherwise it would clutter the tab.
  6. I was also thinking that relying on that website may be a problem if it ever goes down. Since the Field of View page already mentions a few examples of hFOV to vFOV however, I think it would be simpler to just add the formula mentioned on the website and let the users calculate for themselves.
  7. You're right, I just checked and there doesn't seem to be a way to set the resolution. To answer your question, I think you might be able to write a batch file using NirCmd and the command "setdisplay [width] [height] [depth]".
  8. Probably a silly question, but why not just play in fullscreen and set the game's resolution to 720p?

    Talk pages

    I've known that as well. Problem with talk pages is that, unlike forum posts, there is no notifications or list of latest replies/newest discussions (at least, none that I know of), meaning you just have to get lucky that someone will have the idea to open the Discussion page of the game you made a discussion on.

    Forcing AA on AMD Cards? (GTA V)

    I can confirm that forcing AA does not work at all in GTA 5. I can also confirm that forcing AA does work in some games (like Giants: Citizen Kabuto). Basically, you just have to pray that it will do something. In GTA's case, you'll have to use the in-game MSAA.

    Anti-Aliasing article revamp

    Yes. As far as I know it can only be activated when it natively exists in the game, and I'm guessing that's due to the fact CMAA is proprietary Intel technology.

    Anti-Aliasing article revamp

    I'd say SMAA and CMAA are on par in terms of quality, but given how rarely CMAA is used I don't think it would be wrong to simply say "use SMAA whenever you can, whenever post-rocess AA is the only solution". Then we could link to injectSMAA, which is very handy.

    Moddable games

    Thanks for the contributions. On topic, I'm pretty sure that any game can be modded given sufficient hexadecimal editing wizardry, making the classification of wether or not a game is moddable pointless. But we could have a part on the page letting the user know if the game natively supports mods. By natively, I mean that there exists built-in ways to manage user-created content (for example: Steam Workshop support, the launcher of various Bethesda games which recognizes .esm files and lets you enable/disable them, etc.).

    Ideal games to use on an SSD?

    That would be nice. I have little knowledge about storage and having a page dedicated to it end its relation with games would be a welcome addition to me at the very least.
