    No it's A1RF.

    We just kicked half our players for being inactive for more than a month. We only fly, nothing else. As we do group sorties, we are either dominating the skies or not online at all.

    Ahh yeah think I've seen your swarms once or twice. I'm getting less terrible at flying, but it takes time :D

    I gun on Libs like a pro!

    Honestly, I switched outfits just to be in the air all the time. I love it. There are some seriously pro pilots in the outfit. Raking in xp as their gunner is what PS2 is all about for me nowdays.

    Also where the hell is Hossin...

    And it's out - 1.75 gig to download for me, with an up-to-date client.

    General internet impressions are good so far, will report back later!

    Edit: really impressed. 50-60 and smooth in a 100+ player fight. Would have been in the high 30's before. It's a massive change, far more than I really expected. Guess the multithreading helps!

    Safe to say that if you tried PS2 before and found you couldn't quite run it, you should definitely give it another look. This is a massive boost for lower end pc's.

    If you're trying it for the first time, pm me or post here for a link BEFORE you sign up for an SOE account for free gear & camos. :) Join your EG buds and fight for the glorious science of Vanu!

    I'll be around this evening, be interesting to see how much of an improvement the patch makes :)

    Sorry for being such a casual orpheus!

    I stopped playing because my laptop wasn't really up to it. Playable, but only just. Will definitely pop back on now :) I still suck though.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    It's a pretty impressive boost. On low settings @1900x1200 I was getting around 30 fps before and CPU limited. Now more often than not I'm hitting my vsync cap and otherwise GPU limited. Only have an overclocked i3, so they have certainly earned their pay for this update.

    For once, having to optimise for a console release seems to have actually improved the PC experience. Hooray for next gen!

    Have they changed the UI much? I want that to be the next update that happens through console optimisation. Can't read it from where I sit to game.

    They've changed the HUD a lot but that's about it.

    Ahh chaps, it gladdens my heart to see UBADs thinking of returning. Will be great to have you guys back. :)

    @ Glen - no apologies necessary fella, RL always takes precedence. That's one of my favourite things about PS2 actually, that it doesn't require any daily grind etc. Just hop in and play when you feel like it, don't when you don't! UBAD never kicks members for inactivity - we're a community first and foremost, and you don't stop being a part of that just for taking some time out. Once a bad, always a bad! :D

    @Widge - HUD got an overhaul, but not for the better. It looks far worse than it did, but given that's the only bad thing anyone's had to say about the patch so far, it's a price worth paying for these frame boosts. :)

    Will be on from around 8ish tonight for epic squad shenanigans. \o/

    I've not noticed a massive difference, but that's because my GPU was always throttling my fps etc anyway. Improved a bit, which is nice.

    @Gambit1977 cool yer jets, it's not out on PS4 until early 2014. Could change a bit before then ;)

    It is a really good game, shame I've not really had time to get into it much (that and wasn't great on my PC at the time).

    Hopefully it's cross platform and we can get some games going on here.

    Not cross platform sadly. Not even sure if characters are cross platform having said that.

    @orpheus - yep, I've been checking this thread for updates so will hopefully be back to it soon ;)

    @Widge - I'm sure I read somewhere that they were working on having characters that can freely migrate between platforms.
