    Make sure your graphics drivers are updated, guys. Nvidia announced that drivers before 382.05 (GeForce)/377.35 (Quadro) on Windows and 381.22 (GF)/375.66 (Quadro) on Linux have multiple vulnerabilities.

    Nvidia warns that GPU drivers contains multiple vulnerabilities

    Some game play

    Using nVidia shadow play to record this session and after some small tests it does seem to do well with little to none hit to system performance. Still have the overlay showing system information.

    I thought I was doing so well in this mission but I got complacent and ..................... Just watch

    I have looked for HFTS Shadows on the setting but this setting / option was not found. Uploaded 2 videos showing me going through all the settings and rerunning the benchmark
    OK thanks Worf. Seems the game is using enhanced volumetric lighting along with HBAO+ Ambient Occlusion shadowing, which itself is demanding on the GPU. I suspect if you went from Ultra shadows to high or medium you would see an FPS increase.

    Still, your Zotac 1080TI can handle ultra at 60HZ. The graphics in this game seem amazing from your videos, tough on hardware but way better looking than what SGW3 can achieve with that Crytek engine.

    Yep, typically one "detection" and you're done. Still great gameplay, Worf. You're playing it as the devs designed it to be played. Personally, when I see a bunch of bad guys together (especially with an exploding barrel near by) I want to kill them all. I've tried that with a run and hide attempt afterwards which usually leads to death due to detection.

    I'll bet that if you exited the game after that instead of "load last checkpoint" you had to start the mission all over again.

    No, it starts at the beginning of the mission, but it doesn't save your progress like most games. Most games start up at the last checkpoint during the mission. But, I still back up my saves, just in case.

    I hate that song too. I went into settings and turned the music way down.
    Oh, you're talking about "not saving properly" meaning if you exit the game after death you start the mission all over again as opposed to continuing with a load last check point.

    Ya, it always does that. It is a "game feature" . If a family member asks you to drive them to the shopping mall you just tell them you can't because if you exit SGW3 you have to "start all over again".

    or just ALT + Tab it until I get back.

    Our essenbe. Always with a solution. So that's why you can't beat Worf's Time Spy graphic score. You always have to have SGW3 running in the background. I'd go with that.

    I already told Steve, I was wondering if anybody else chases all the Steam achievements in games. I have 7 to go in SGW3
