For the most part, full screen is going to be the best when trying to maximize frames, as it is the mode that focuses entirely on the game. In RogueCompany, the resolution setting is pretty straight forward.
The only reason you should be adjusting this is if your graphics card will have difficulty displaying at that resolution. SYNC is a phenomenal technology that locks your game at a set FPS to avoid screen tearing.
If you are trying to maximize your FPS though, this option could possibly set you back. This setting will require personal testing based on your system.
Motion blur is a setting that is typically used when running at a very low FPS. Unless you are playing on a rig that can barely run this game, you should keep this turned off as it is only going to make tracking enemies more difficult.
This setting is actually quite tricky, as lowering it will improve the performance of the game, but it will be harder for you to see objects and enemies from a faraway distance. Shadows typically make the game look more realistic, but come at the cost of frames.
Turn shadows to medium or low for most systems to maximize on frames. This setting is really only for looks, but truthfully it is only going to give you a few extra frames so if you can’t stand how the game looks you can always turn it up to your liking.
This setting only slightly improves the visuals of the game while taking a small hit to performance. On all systems, this should be set to low as it is basically useless, and keeping it on high will cost you a few frames.
This setting just changes how far away you can see foliage (grass, bushes, and trees). The game is honestly amazing, and you can get it free by using the twitch farming hack.
The most important reason for High pings and network lag is wrong region selection. If you want to enjoy rogue company then you have to play this game in full screen mode.
The game looks much better and more resources are allocated to full screen application sin windows. Always play the game at the max native resolution your system supports.
Sync adds input lag and unless you have a 2080ti I recommend you disable this. Turn off motion blur you need clarity for better aiming and easy kills.
You can lower it for higher FPS, but the graphics quality significantly decreases and thus I don’t recommend using this option. Shadows make the game look good but at the cost of FPS and GPU resources.
If your system does not have a high-end GPU then stick to low or medium settings. Keep this setting at medium, This can help remove the edges in-game and make the game look much cleaner.
Everyone else can select medium settings for a decent balance between quality and performance. This will lower grass and other unnecessary foliage in game making it easier to spot enemies as well as give you higher frame rates.
Pulitzer Prizewinning poet Mary Oliver famously remarked, “attention without feeling. When I read reviews that jabber on about highs, mediums, and lows, and that rely exclusively on nonmusical vocabulary, I come away with feelings of acute cognitive dissonance.
Therefore, I try to choose components for review that I hope will contribute to an immersive, sensual, time-melting sense of ebb and flow. In hopes of shifting my editorial trajectory, I decided to parlay the rapscallion luck that got me here into a review of Rogue's brand-new line-phono preamplifier: the RP-1.
It has no DAC, but it does have a big Balance knob, and a moving-magnet/moving-coil photo stage with adjustable gain and cartridge loading. These options can be selected by removing the RP-1's top panel and moving two sliders (gain) and two DIP switches (resistive loading).
The output impedance is about 8 ohms, which, according to Rogue Audio founder Mark O'Brien, “is sufficient for most typical dynamic headphones.” The plastic remote control can be used to adjust the volume and balance, select inputs, and Mute the RP-1's output.
The combination of Rogue RP-1, First Watt J2 power amplifier ($4000, review in progress), and Technics SB-C700 speakers ($1700/pair) gave me the cleanest window yet on my of' pal, The Viking of Sixth Avenue (2 UK LPs, Honest Jon's Records HJRLP18). Moon dog wrote hundreds of compositions for dozens of unusual instruments in no fewer than 27 tempos, and I do believe the time-keeping capabilities of this modest Rogue -anchored hi-fi showed me at least 23 of them.
Someday I'll own everything Moon dog recorded, but for now, Technics' SL1200GAE turntable and Option's M2 Black cartridge through the RP-1's MM photo stage made Viking sound as I'd never heard it. The near-hyper-dimensionality seemed not the result of phase anomalies, but real and corporealized tangible in a way that showcased Moon dog's artistic intentions.
How the individual instrumental or ambient tracks combine spatially (as in multi mono left/right and up/down imaging) is a big part of the composer's intended experience. Through this system, bass tracks emerged in an especially delectable manner, with the illusion of dense waves starting low, near the floor, then billowing out and rising.
The RP-1's window on all this was so clean that I could speculate about the types of microphone and recorder used for several of the tracks I'd identified on the grid. The best audio systems do not simply reveal or re-create: to be engaging and satisfying in a musically meaningful way, they must show me some physical energy matrix that went down on the day the record was produced.
Obviously, the transducersthe cartridge and speakersplay major roles in generating this energy matrix, but of nearly equal importance are the low-level signal amplifiers. If the first stages of signal gain lose the kick, presence, or structure of a recording, all the amp and speaker can do is make that failure more obvious.
Think of the audio system as a body, and the preamplifier as a gland producing hormones that control the vitality, strength, gender, and attractiveness of the musical presentation. Moving-Coil: After installing the new Haney by Excel EL low-output MC cartridge and setting the Rogue RP-1's photo stage to high gain and a 300 ohm load, I chose Ravel's Piano Concerto in D Major for the Left Hand with my new favorite Ravel specialist, Samson François (19241970), and André Clusters conducting the Orchestra de la Society DES Concerts Du Conservatoire de Paris (LP, EMI C 069-10867).
Like Moon dog, Ravel employed jazz harmonies, and frequent changes of tempo and key signature. It’s easily one of the most important towing accessories available, probably second only to the trailer hitch itself.
Because it helps you to tow a trailer safely, and that, after all, is the most important consideration there is. In this guide we take a good look at some of the best trailer brake controls on the market and then take a deep dive with our in-depth buyer’s guide to assess all the features and design points you need to know about these handy little devices.
That makes it easy to ensure that the product is working correctly and solving any issues if they do come up by pinpointing the source. Ok, it won’t cook a steak, but it will help you to control the braking on your trailer simply and effectively.
A somewhat different model to the one we just looked at, it is a far simpler design of brake controller. That’s not necessarily a bad thing however, with a number of useful design points coming out of that simplicity.
Use the big chunky buttons to enter and adjust trailer weight and brake activation speed and away you go. Our next model of brake controller comes from CURT, and it is a pretty interesting little design.
It’s big stand out is the fact it boasts a built-in Triple-axis, motion-sensing Accelerometer. Now, an Accelerometer may sound like the coolest ride at a carnival, but it is also a very handy little gadget to have in your car or truck.
If you tow through hilly terrain then this bespoke braking adjustment could be very appealing indeed. It does deliver a lot of interesting features though and for a price tag considerably lower than many full proportional braking control systems.
On the other hand it is missing a few of the things you would expect on a premium model. You also get the ability to control up to three braking axles, which should be enough for the majority of trailer sizes.
Brand Draw Time Model 20191 Weight 1.2 Pounds You won’t be able to make the delicate adjustments to brake power or the set up of the device, but you are also saving quite a bit of cash.
While this is a simple and effective device it is also missing some bells and whistles of its premium brother. Still, you are getting Kenosha build and design quality for a good price, so that’s pretty impressive.
Hayes is a company that has been putting out aftermarket vehicle tools for quite a while, and this is its entry into the trailer brake control market. As a time-based model it is very to install, and it also requires no pre-reviewing, which we always like to see in time-based braking control units.
One thing that isn’t quite so effective is the attached connector, which is frankly garbage. It has a strange design that means it is compatible with some vehicles types for an easy plug and play installation but not with others.
Hayes suggests you buy the model with an additional connector to ensure compatibility. That pushes the total price up toward that of a more basic proportional brake unit.
The big stand out with this model is the fact it is so simple to set up and easy to use. The connector is well-designed, to allow for true plug and play ability with this model.
Here’s a second entry from this fine company because, quite frankly, it is always a pleasure to see a Reese trailer brake controller. This is by far the most stripped back model of trailer brake controller we’ve seen.
If the brake system isn’t working, it’s up to you to figure it out. The brake power is instead controlled by an old school looking, tiny plastic slider.
This is after all a Reese trailer brake control, so it is highly effective in use. It also has the build quality of Reese for an affordable price tag and that, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call value for the money.
Brand Reese Tow Power Model 74642 Weight 9.6 Ounces We finish up with the third entry from Kenosha, and one of the more feature-packed models to make the list.
In addition, you have a lovely bright screen with blue numbers. That doesn’t really make much difference, it’s just a bit of change from the usual red.
That screen also gives back a huge amount of real-time diagnostic information, making it easy to monitor your electrical and braking systems.
