Changes from the beta to release

First off, performance is better all around. Marked improvement for hacking which for me became unresponsive before — horrible in a time event.

I’m up to the second boss fight and I haven’t seen a single Automatic Unlocking Device.  There were four in Detroit alone in the beta.  Hitting the interact key ‘e’ no longer is a shortcut to hack a device.

There’s a few tweaks to the placement of enemies and they might be a touch sharper than they were in the beta.

Basically, it got a coat of polish and some optimization.

    All this talk about DX:HR and how good it is, and I gotta (uh, let’s see what syntax works here) wait for it. Truly an agonising experience D:

    Also, I vote streaming your second playthrough. We all love loading screens, after all!

      1. Oh hey, works. Cool.
      2. Apparently, turning off VSynch improves loading times.

        Smaller-than and greater-than work*. Forgot it’d make those invisible if I typed them. Well, now you have three comments.

      • Yeah, that’s about the only option that I changed between the beta and the release. I’ve been running around with V-sync off.

        I managed to beat DX:HR yesterday as a pacifist and see all four endings. Adam mentions keeping to his morals and such in all of them, so I’m kinda hoping that there’s really eight endings — another four for Jensen’s who killed folks.

      • Oh, right and then this morning I upgraded to Windows 7. So I actually have use of all 4 GB of RAM.
        I own a USB microphone and the stuttering in my videos was likely caused by a driver issue with the builtin that would crop up and cause things to be recorded at half speed. I found this out when I tried to use Rosetta Stone and bon jour turned into bwaaaaaaannn jjjoooooooooooorrrrrrr.

        So, a live run of DXHR would work better from a technical standpoint now, but I’m absolutely swamped for the foreseeable future. I’m looking at 37 hours on campus plus 12-plus hours at work and whatever amount of time homework and two sets of lab reports a week takes. I’m not even sure I’ll have time to game at all, let alone something scheduled.

          Ah, wow. Swamped indeed. Best of luck, and don’t forget to sleep every now and then :)
          I’ll just be refreshing your blog every so often to see what you’re up to. Waiting. Watching. *spooky music* *fades into background*
