Why wait just because you might have to run the game on low settings
God forbid it doesn't look better than real life right?
Jesus... It's a fun game regardless of the way it looks.. just play it lol
okay there is one slider option that could ruin the game lol resolution scale might ruin the game a little if you turn it all the way down, but I keep it at 80% on my low end PC, yeah it doesn't look as great as my high end desktop at home but I still have lots of fun on this game :P
Hi, thanks everyone for the suggestions, really helpful but I have not been able to resolve this issue. Pretty sure I removed everything before trying a fresh install, and have tried numerous alterations to the settings to no avail.
Did you let the server completely generate the world before logging in the first time? You should wait until it passes through all stages ...generating terrain, carving world features, padding, freezing, finishing etc and reaches an idle state. Logging in while this is happening has been known to cause world errors.
If this is the case I would suggest generating a new world and letting in finish before logging on. If this is a world you have played on before I would try the following; Backup Game.eco and put it in a safe place. Delete Game.eco from the storage folder and rename Archive.eco to Game.eco (case sensative) and start the server and see if you can log on then. If that still causes a problem I would start tying backups until you find one that is unaffected and you can log in.
You can load the Game.eco up to google drive or dropbox and the create a bug report in github and link the world save, Game.eco, to it so the devs can take a look. They probably can't fix it for you but might be able to see what caused the problem to keep it from happening in the future.
I am not sure about atht. On most games I play vsync is usually disabled :) I have played ECO for quite a while and never seen "100%" GPU nor have I had a problem with increased temperature. this is also not a complaint we hear. Are you sure there might not be other issues causing your problem? If its reproducible and you have the logs that show this usage of GPU it would be helpful if you submitted a report about it.
I have two sli'd gtx 980's both run at 100% if I don't enforce Vsync, although I get a nice FPS of 200-220 on fantastic settings.
also just force Vsync from nvidia control panel, even amd supports forcing vsync look here's from my laptop
