I think a big difference is that it doesn't seem like enemies ever drop shotgun shells but they do pistol clips.

If you use it more you'll get more ammo. Those loose shotgun shells are really easy to miss though.

I ran it dry at every opportunity and got sod-all ammo for it. Meanwhile I drowned in pistol and SMG ammo.

I'm having a hard time with the blur while using the Index. I've been moving it up and down a lot since it seems like a vertical position issue, but that isn't really working. I've tried all the IPD positions too. Any common issues or fixes? Stuff in the distance in Alyx is pretty rough. Maybe that's just the quality of the screen?

Also, the refresh rate was set to 90 by default. Should that be at 144 (or whatever max was)?

- Hot Dogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades is still trucking with constant updates, but Anton just finished Update 90 which is now out of a month-long alpha. If you don't own this game, it's more than just a firearms sim, so give it a look. And don't forget to put your pistol over your shoulder, so when you're taking a knee to load a stripper clip into your bolt-action you can reach behind yourself to grab a backup when you get pushed by sosigs. Note: this feels extremely cool

Thanks for posting this and the video. The dude seems pretty into the game and I'm going to 100% pick it up eventually.

What's your actual IPD, out of curiosity?

Just don't bother upgrading the shotgun. It's a fine weapon with no upgrades, for the dozen-or-so shells the game will give you for it.

The auto-loading upgrade is actually resin well spent. The rest for it are completely worthless though.

Is it in other games, or just Alyx? Alyx has a pretty aggressive auto-resolution feature so it might be cutting that down to keep the framerate up.

I'm running 144fps and like 126% scaling and alyx is gorgeous on my index. The game yells at me when I turn it on but I've got a pretty beefy PC (1080gtx, i9 and 64gb RAM).
