I have it bound. The issue is that every single action needs to be bound to a key. Making ctrl be crouch made the action that was previously bound to ctrl be empty. It doesn't let you save your changes until you fix that.

i changed that key to something else and it still won't let me rebind crouch, is there a config file somewhere with the keybinds I can edit?

Maybe but not well. I'd wait until their first optimization pass in April. My laptop has an i5-7300HQ and a 1050 Ti and with everything on low I still had moments where it dipped into 20 fps.

I have four questions:

1. Are grenades in the game yet?
2. If anyone has grenades could they give me grenades?
3. Is there a map that I can print out? I like having paper maps.
4. Who is this by the tree is that you?

I play it on a 960M with everything as low as it'll go, and it still gets very choppy in the bigger towns or even when I look at the bigger towns from a distance. Although, that still happens even on my desktop with a 1060, so It really depends on your friend's tolerance for lower framerates. The game is apparently very reliant on CPU over GPU right now anyway, so it might be worth him giving it a shot. You get 2 hours to try it and get a refund anyway, so he doesn't really have anything to lose.

I have a friend who has to hold his hands up with this thumbs extended so that his left hand makes a little "L" shape to know which direction is left. There is no way he's going to be able to figure out all 4 cardinal directions!

Sadly I feel like this is the majority of gamers as well.

Gameplay

Adjusted movement speed of endgame play zones
Adjusted weapon sound volume in the lobby


Bug fixes

Fixed a bug with the volume of crouch walking


Nice. It says alot about the quality of this as an early access game that these are by far my biggest issues with the game so far, and they're fixing them already. Once those performance optimisations come in, along with mantling and maybe some vehicle handling tuning, IMO it'll be pretty much ready for a full release.

Good at that playzone speed change if they are making it slower(which I assume they are), it was getting real rough towards the end of the game constantly having to run for the playzone unable to return fire at the people already in it just laughing and popping off at you while you try to get to the white zone.

I don't like them slowing down the circle, it promotes camping the edge of the circle even more which is what 90% of people were doing already.

Circle closing speed is fine, they just need to adjust the time between them so you can actually get in a few fights. Add an extra minute or two.

Yeah I meant moreso this than the actual speed of the shield. It should close fast and punish you for being outside it, apparently in H1Z1 you can just pop bandages and stay in it indefinitely.

We need more than 2 minutes between closes otherwise yeah people just won't fight.

You probably can't survive indefinitely, but it's more forgiving than it should be in the final stages. I've started lingering on the edge/just outside to get in behind people because I'm tired of having it happen to me. Pop a boost and you're pretty much good to go.

Doesn't feel at all in the spirit of the game.

And now he just made the circle closing speed even slower, because of big streamers complaining that they die to it too often.

Speed isn't the issue. It's that you can make a calculated decision to travel through the "unplayable area" to avoid or attack others.

I've considered this could be an additional strategic layer, but I personally don't find that idea especially compelling.

I'm guessing the complaints about the circle speed at the end are from Arma 3 BR players. It works slightly different than in PUBG. First of all the circle isn't visible, but can be seen on the map and GPS. Secondly, it doesn't move in a wave, it moves more abruptly but you can go outside of the circle during the countdown period which allows for flanks and maneuvers. I like the BR system better because you can deal with no-man's-land more easily, but I understand why the circle needed to be visually represented for dumb baby newbies, too.

gently caress nothing more annoying than landing alone, with no one nearby, inside the circle, searching the first house you find and getting a SCAR with an 8x scope and an AK plus plenty of ammo, not seeing another soul and then the circle changes and you're outside and you have to move a little bit so you go over to the next group of houses and there's some rat sitting inside with a shotgun pointed right at the door.

To be honest this is the kind of stuff they should never change. The circle placement is fine and if someone wants to do this and has enough map awareness to pull it off, so be it. The minute everyone figures it out we'll just have naval gun battles and everyone will stop anyway.
