    well, I expect the dragon to be hard as fuck. I mean, it would be somewhat daft if it wasn't, cos, you know, dragon and all that. iirc it had something like a million hitpoints, and was so big you could target individual bits of it to attack. I don't expect my char to ever be as 'ard that I could do a Skyrim and one-shot a dragon. I mean, judging from the scale I barely reach it's shins ffs.

    Moriath I am a FH squatter

    Get a console. Don't crash on that lol. I given up on multiplayer now I is old so consoles are ok on the sofa cause my back hurts so much in a desk chair

    cleared hinterlands and some undead swamp + most of the coast. Decided it was time to move on with the story and opted to go with the mages so I now got another mage available (still doing the mage mission when i shut down mind you).

    Get the odd crash issue but not been too bad, mind you I got a fresh install of everything that may help as I needed to make space on the c: drive and decided to just unpartition it as added more drives recently. Main thing seems to be when I interact with one of the telescope skull things for the shards, seems the first one i do in each zone crashes the game.

    Tomorrow I plan a little run to finish the mage mission before I go on to doing more exploring. Already looking forward to another play through and selecting to go with templars , be more interesting given I shall be a mage on my next run. Should mix it up a bit.

    Game does feel huge though, can see it being a long term game unlike most I got lately. Especially as I may not get fm2015 this year and will need a replacement, especially for the xmas period at the inlaws. Be a 7-10day stay there as done want to ship the cat around every few days, so definately taking pc to play this :D

    You get Viv as you head to Val Royeaux and see a seeker / chantry clip

    I like Solas too he works well with my 2-h axe dwarf, he casts his vortex pulls all enemies into a pile and i just mash them, and the templar tree does mahosive damage on demons and mages.

    Blackwall
    Didnt see that one comming.

    And the after the thing at haven when you walk thru the deep snow, made my eyes moist..

    Weird. I thought I'd done that already. I've been to Val Royeaux a few times, It's where the Chantry women got beaten up and I collected Sera.

    I also still can't beat that damn dragon in Hinterlands, I get him down to 75% and he gets crazy with the flames. I think I'm doing him wrong.

    I *think* it kind of depends if you chat favourably with someone or other. I'm trying to get it on with Sera atm, she's a massive lezza and the game thinks my bristly chinned hunk of rogue is a girl, so why not :D

    my female inquisitor did rude things with blackwall :X

    was a bit surprised by the gratuitous topless shot afterwards, im waiting for the BAN THIS SICK FILTH daily mail campaign

    TdC Trem's hunky sex love muffin Staff member Moderator

    heh, I'd do that but since my char is a boy-rogue...meh

    you getting all hot and bothered with Blackwall surprises me though. I'd have thought you more the Cullen type ;-)

    meh, so it turns out that if I manage to stress the GPU enough, it will reset itself. this happens with both the most current driver and the previous one. this is, tbh, somewhat odd, because I can play my ENB'd up Skyrim, Crysis 2, Elite Dangerous, etc al with absolutely no issues at all, but by pure happenstance I ran Ungine Heaven to test out some OC on the mobo I'd done to see if I noticed it, and to my great surprise I saw the dreaded "GPU locked up and recovered" error. I feel sad for bitching about Nvidia and DA-I now and will RMA the card :(

    ooh ooh ooh! soooo, after doing some reading on le interpipes, I downloaded a utility which gave me access to some of the voltage controls of the gfx card. I very slightly upped the volts in to the GPU core, and voila I could run Heaven without crashing! Feeling optimistic, I started up DA-I and cranked all the settings back up to ultra. Although I was very nervous, I got on with the game (I'm at the Temple of Pride btw, I just slaughtered an Arcane Horror...took me the best part of half an hour pff) and to my amazement I played for near two hours with no crash. So, fuck yeah, I guess :)


    Also, just fyi my card is a factory OC'd Gigabyte GTX 780ti card, the "GHz Edition" one. What the intertubes basically say is that Gigabyte basically...um....forgot to bump up the maximum power draw of the card with this series, whereas they did do it with their absolute top range OC'd cards. Anywhoo, when the card is running balls to the wall so to speak, as a modern game will make it, it may starve itself of le volts and could crash. Mine apparently does that. I've only given it like the tiniest smidgen of more volts, like 0.025V tiny, but this was enough to eliminate the crashes.

    I'm off to practice my sexface in the mirror for a bit and then I shall do le sleeps.

    blah, unfortunately the card is not stable at all under the uber load that DA:I generates, so away it goes :(

    Did you get the latest Nvidia Driver, it mentioned something about DA in the notes?

    yeah, uh, yeah. It's not only DA-I: I can make the card crash in Unigine Heaven too. RMA's been accepted, it goes away tomorrow.

    So ... who drank from the well of sorrows? Or did you let Morrigan, or did you destroy it?

    My inquisitor drank from the pool, as it seemed the best bet to defeat Corpywotsit...

    Stop teasing me to back to the main plot line! :) I keep getting distracted by side quests. "Lets go visit this other location on the board that I found mentioned in a note left on a body in a field. I bet it's just a little bonus. 12 hours later .... "

    Played around with the multiplayer last night. Seemed fun, although I didn't like the option to get gear chests using real world currency. Tried to play this morning before week but found the servers very unstable and two instance runs failed due to a loss of connection.

    Has anyone played enough to know if there's much variety in the missions?
     
  27. Mabs

    Mabs J Peasemould Gruntfuttock

    its optional shortcut you can buy them with ingame cash higher difficulty gets more money

    theres a few maps and varies sections, its meant to be an additional distraction not a full on multiplayer game ;)
