So since i had Glyph installed because of Archage, i noticed that some people i know have tried and liked Rift. So its easy to download and run as it allows you to play with only 15% downloaded. Cool i said i woke up this morning, made a nice bacon,egg and cheese mcmuffin for myself to fix the beers from last night.
Sat down. Loaded Xsplit. Started my twitch stream and off we go! Now i have 3 screens and because they come off 1 GPU and that GPU really is pushing the limits with 3 screens i have my main monitor as my 3rd screen. Its not my main monitor, monitor 3 is actually the one i use most. Yes its not right and well after enough system and screen crashes i have this system and no way in hell i will ever go thru the ordeal of trying to fix it again. The fix is simple a new GPU, which is far away…
so Rift, ya rift. It has a bug. It will not run in windowed mode on a second screen (never mind 3rd). Really it won’t. A search shows people since 2011 complaining about it all the way up to a few months ago. If you click on the title bar of the game while its on any screen besides monitor 1 it will… get this.. minimize and never let you maximize it again. Here is the stream before twitch deletes it…
So its abug, which after 3 years one would think would be fixed. But lookin at the reports on the supprot forum of rift and each and everyone is closed without 1 mention by anyone in support. Tells me .. they don’t care or the problem is too huge to fix at this point. Mentioning that it is a real problem, not just in our heads, would be nice.
But nah.. Trion has now offically disproven itself to me as a useful gaming company after watching what it did to archage and reading what its done to its other games. They are in a spiral that will not be survivable if they do not pull up soon.
So now back to find something for my Sunday…. here is an update of curent games im watching.
Afterworld…. getting worse… i think it might just need someone to hammer in that first nail to start the process. Last update was so hugely bad and pushed on live servers in such bad shape the average player couldnt stay logged in, most professions were unplayable and all the mobs disappeared. They got some mobs and some loot back after 5 weeks, players still cant move around much and about 60% of my storage (Yes the expensive part) is gone. One guy even lost all his ingame currency cause he kept it in storage (Full pvp looting is a bitch).
Earthrise.. looks interesting but the servers are down all week…. so don’t know if it is or not.
Project gordon … its interesting at the very least. But sadly a bug in the ava building process got me locked out of my accoutn and i havent been able to log in and play again. Alpha blues there.. but when my account is fixed i will be back.
There are a few small alpha/beta games i might go take a third look at. They are slow buils but hey i need something to do on sunday morning and it will not be the leaves in my yard.. dammit.
