    Ubisoft Servers are a pile of poo

    I am also on a console. By default when setting up your console it will automatically set the Primary DNS the same as your Default Gateway. (This is basically your cable modem/router or just Cable Modem connected to a secondary Router or switch) I will not go to much into that because it would probably fry your brain... Okay all you need yo do is follow my below instructions and you will be fine. Bearing in mind. you have to take into account Load Balance into account, thus would depend on how many devices are currently connected to the network. If you have everything connected to the internet in your home. You have to take this into account when calculating load balance. If your devices are turned off they will still be assigned an IP Address but they are not physically connected to the network. PS4 Settings 1. Go to Settings and press (X) 2. Select Network and press (X) How do you want to connect to the network 1. Select Set Up Internet Connection and press (X) 2. Select Use LAN Cable (Wi-Fi is the same process) and press (X) How do you want to set up the internet connection 1. Select Custom and press (X) IP Address Settings 1. Select Automatic and press (X) DHCP Host Name (If you are on Cable leave this as default) 1. Select Do Not Specify and press (X) DNS Settings 1. Select Manual (We will be using Google Server DNS Addresses)* 2. Select Primary DNS and then enter 8.8.8.8 and press (X) or (R2) 3. Select Secondary DNS and then enter 8.8.4.4 and press (X) or (R2) When you have finished it will test the connection and give you a result. To remove the DNS Primarary and Secondary Settings. Just go through the process again and then select Automatic and this will revert the DNS Address back to default which would be your Default Gateway Address for example, 192.168.10.1

    Worth Buying

    The Third DLC (Last Stand) I believe will be out Feb/March time. So far both the DLC's have been worth the money. You're best looking at the YouTube videos in this video section for playthrough's of Underground & Survival to see if it adds enough for you to validate spending the money. Incursions & other enhancements to the game are all part of the normal gameplay. Season pass gives you two free supply drops as well.

    Survival problems

    There are no medications in the DZ area so make sure you've collected the maximum before going in. Look for ambulances, medical centres etc. Often also found along with Weapon parts near police vehicles. Mainly though I make sure to visit as many of the safe areas as possible and pick pills up there. My tactic is not to start taking any medication until I've got 45mins left on the death clock. Then I start with a Pill, then injection, then back to the pill etc. I believe, from observation, that medication use has diminished returns, meaning the more you use them (of one type) the faster the effects wear off. Most games I get into the DZ with three each plus about 25mins left.

  8. T'was the night before christmas and all through the house everyone felt shitty, even the mouse. Dads at the whore house, moms smokin grass, and I just settled down for a nice piece of ass. Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter I sprang up from my piece to see what was the matter. He came down the chimney like a bat out of hell, I knew right away that fat fucker fell. He filled all the stockins with pretzels and beer and a big rubber dick for my brother the queer! He rose up the chimney with one hell of a fart, that son of a bitch blew my chimney apart! He swore and cursed as he flew out of sight. Piss on u all and have one hell of a night! Merry Xmas everyone and have happy and safe Holiday

    Hunter Gear Set

    Hey guys, If you caught the latest State of The Game, the topic of the potential Hunter Gear set was discussed. I wanted to start a discussion about potential gear set bonuses assigned to this build since it is such a cool idea! I haven't put a lot of thought into the 2 and 3 set bonuses, but I think it would be awesome if the 4 set bonus is as follows: All enemy NPCs do not attack (i.e. aggro) the agent wearing the set, but the agent does 0% damage to all NPCs. This would be so much fun in the dark zone. It would allow agents to be much more creative in their attacks against other agents, rogue or otherwise. For example, an agent with Hunter gear could camp out and hide at landmarks and wait for groups to come and farm the bosses. Then at the right moment ambush the group and essentially fight alongside the NPCs. It would open up a whole new world of possibilities for solo players considering they never have to worry about taking damage from NPCs, and can focus on PVP only. If anyone has any suggestions for the other bonuses of the set, or any input whatsoever please comment!

  12. If you like the LWM4, you should pick up the LVOA-C at the Special Weapons Vendor, very good set of talents, handles about the same as the LWM4 and it usually hits harder than the LWM4.

    Hardline was garbage, and EA's response to it was even worse. Can't stand when devs don't swallow their pride and admit to their shit and fix it.

    My rant about people hating on the game

    Actually I can name 2 games I know that had the same complaint's about problem's BF4 and Hardline and they went on and on just like The Division. Only thing difference here to many people seem to jump on the band wagon and not really give the game's a chance I played almost all online games and yes I played BF4 and Hardline and Division but so far UBI Soft actually tried to fix our issues EA and DICE did jack shit but that's my own opinion about what I seen over the last few year's Oh and they actually banned people's forum account's for complaining about about BF4 & Hardline the game when it start it to get really bad so much for asking players for input

    So, now that these two gentlemen have been so kind as to provide serious answers to your query, I feel I have some room to ask my question. If they're sounding like chipmunks, does that mean they say "oh no, they got Alvin!" when you shot one of them? I m ean, Alec needed a break.

  24. I am older than dirt - I have been playing video games since Pong (In a bar). My first agent was a male, my second female. The second is my solo char with the first being the one I team play with my son. I created the avatar to meet my needs, but expected no playing differences. And I am seeing none. Note quinch199 (OK How do I insert member link /sigh) remark about cost. Millions are spent on the production/advertising of games like this and without a direct story line requiring differences, an Avatar is an Avatar. My first Avatar was made quickly without thought to get playing as soon a possible. My second was designed to look like a badass. I love the black avatar and added a neck tattoo. She is badass. So your experience changes how you play, and maybe, your attitude changes with gender - I don't think I ever thought of that aspect of the game, and bravo - another way to enjoy gaming. ...gene

  27. Bear in mind, the central park pvp can be separate from the dz pvp. Survival pvp has been its own thing. The glimpses from central park could just be dlc module. The dark zone could still be a minimaxer environment, that the devs originally envisaged. Survival might have been your level playing field, and then the devs return to their "usual programming".

  28. Interesting stuff. I think the datamined stuff is fairly tangible. Some of the reddit stuff, I think peeps over extrapolate this for what they wish. *shrugs* Patch 1.4 lacked any direct pvp changes. Accommodating pve players gave "indirect" pvp changes, but ultimately Pvp was left alone. A noticeable absence imho. Later, massive confirmed that Last Stand would have the missing pvp focused changes. They said they wanted to "observe" 1.4+ to plan pvp changes. Observe, indicates they had ideas but leaving room for adjustments After all, these changes are attached with a long term planned dlc. Not so ad-hoc.. Players have liked Survival pvp compared to old DZ pvp. So, hopefully that has some bearing. I don't know which has more importance, mini maxers or casuals. Which have more import to a successful community?! Cater to casuals can make it too soft, and catering to minimaxers just breaks the game for a gankers-fest. Now, my point is that in 1.4 pst they were bending over backwards to accommodate the players' concerns. Survival/1.5 pts they were really limited to debugging issues with their vision. I expect the next round of pts to be the same. ... I.e. you already had your chance! Mark my words! Now, I have done zero Survival experience, and feel DZ pvp is not so arse-holic in my timezone (as multilingual timezone; seriously, it pays to know how to say "hi" in a few languages in this tz) as other timezones A stroll in the park compared to antidotal ganking reports from the main timezones. Opening up the central park as new terrain sounds promising. Untill now, they go underground or make better use of the current pve map; nothing to sneeze at. In the 1.4/1.5 it has bern a good improvement. As for vanity items, the last Xmas pom poms seemed to be rehashed old shit. (Happy to be proved wrong; honesty). So as silly as"vanity" sounds, a good gaming community caters for a breath of players. This means cosmetic interface counts. How are those permanent sunglasses going for you lol.? I'm a subscription player, so I've already put my money forward and will sit back and hope for "Last Survival" ... surviving, lol.

  30. And in other news @CymroMi, my sympathies with your partner being a nurse. Had a friend who's partner was a nurse. Ironically, he got zero sympathy when sick. She'd just remind him of the people with more serious ailments that she dealt with on a daily basis, than the humble flu or cold.

    Survival Stories.

    Had 3 runs tonight over about 1.5-2hrs, all were 2-man PvP 1st run: about 75 mins & 2800 pts - Started down S of the BoO and E of Camp Hudson, but not exactly in the row houses. We were going along fine for a while, but my teammate couldn't find tools and wasn't able to craft a mask. He got them at one point but something happened and they disappeared from his inventory. My teammate ended up with a mediocre LMG and I had a SRS, so we were doing fine engaging NPCSs and managed to avoid confrontation with the only players we bumped into. Aside from that, this run would have been ok, but I had to leave in the middle for about 10-15 min to help my wife clean up the bathroom that our toddler straight up destroyed (bandaids, makeup, hair ties, ointments and perfume everywhere). When I got back we only had about 17 min and couldn't get tools for my teammate so we didn't really try to get to the DZ. We had some meds, but not enough to make it worthwhile. 2nd run: about 2 min & 360 pts- Started by the train tracks on the far W side of the map, near the Erskine PvE boss. Basically we grabbed our crap from the starting point, crossed the agreed, hopped a wall and stumbled onto two other players. They tagteamed my teammate and I couldn't shoot for shit so they dropped him without either of them going down. They then 2v1'd me and that was that. 3rd run: about 50 min & 1100 pts - Started absolute far SE by Warrengate. We did ok running thru the buildings by the HVT spawn by Warrengate. The only real issue we had was getting clothing to increase our temp rating. We needed up with M870's and we're going along fine until we decided to engage a lvl 30 elite LMG, and he kicked the crap out of us. We got into a spot where we really couldn't run and we were way undergeared. All in all, at 0-3, I still had fun and look forward to more runs. I know there's a learning curve, so right now my goal is to try to continue to steadily up my personal best. For the night I ended up with 2 Survival caches, a gun cache (?), and I think a field prof cache. I didn't get anything worthwhile, but I could have fared better if I didn't have to wait like 2 hrs for Survival to DL. Thought it would auto DL since my box was in rest mode, but that was wrong so I had to run old content while it DL'd.

    Change to Full Screen Crash

    OK, I can finally work on this. I hate notepad... But wait - no xml editor - but wait - installing VS 2012 ultimate. ... And thanks for the tip - being a SW engineer at heart (PM now) - I always put safe copies away And I understand, XML is very unforgiving for a txt file. No full screen ever, this is my first experience with "The Division" - so after a couple of hours playing in 1/2 res mode I started mucking with settings. If it counts I play borderlands 2 full screen... Not that it counts . ... ... .... I mean darn, it's a computer, you hit return and the install should be done - right ? On another task - how do I verify my game is up to date - everything else is. ...gene

    Video content: Ideas?

    That's a good idea. I also liked SideStrafe's duel point of view videos he did of The Division which were similar (aka semi-roleplayed) and whilst I can't do the complex editing required for that, something similar to as you suggest might be a good idea. I'll have a go over the holidays on some recordings, not 100% sure as I don't have much of an "acting" voice but I'll give it a go. Nice suggestion! Thank you

  40. I agree - great post - fascinating I would add one thing - morale for the NPCs (except the berserkers - I love those). Some should run, some fall back and regroup, and some charge - just as in RL. It should be random so even when you go back you probably will get a slightly different game play. While I have very little time in this game, I am having fun and that is the point. Again, fascinating post ...gene

    Survival Tips

    NOTES: Like to Have's & Some essentials we forget. 1) Remember to craft the BASIC (i.e. green) Extended magazine BEFORE you convert all your materials to Blue. There are no higher level extended magazine blue prints the closer you get to the DZ and more ammunition trumps most things. 2) Try to craft the extra Medical slot. 3) Max out on Medical kits before you go to extraction. Make sure if you craft First Aid that you REPLACE the medical kit you used to craft it. 4) Blue Weapons are needed. Purple are inviting but ultimately insufficient to the task at a basic level. You CAN manage an extraction with just Blue weapons but try to craft High End when in the DZ if you have time and materials SPARE (or, more likely, find one dropped by a dead agent). Bottom line, the Hunters have three medical kits. You need to out-DPS them AND out-self-heal the Hunter. 5) Numbers = more chance of success. Team up with Agents in the DZ if you can at all. They bring more Hunters but there is still strength in numbers and co-operation. 6) Ultimately remember its still Dog-eats-Dog. It may even be PvE but you can get killed and its always a 60/40 chance when in the DZ if you get picked up or kicked whilst down by another player. Outside the DZ its UNLIKELY someone will pick you up, chances are you are dead.

    Lol. Please clarify. You lost me there. If you want DPS on paper to be high you spec into headshot damage via talents and weapon mods along with reload speed. Always spec into magazine size and rate of fire on mods. For PVP real world power spec into Crit hit chance over headshot damage unless you can actually headshot players which I cannot lol

    Survival Tips

    Whilst the 'Give yourself 30 mins DZ time for a more relaxed experience' is very sound, I have never entered with more than 20 mins on the clock. Another tip, don't give up... I had a terrible run last night where most stuff was looted wherever I went. I found pills everywhere but not decent clothing or much of anything else but tools and electronics (had plenty of those). By the time I fashioned the mask, I had 8 minutes left on the clock but ran for the DZ to try and get a bit of extra credit for XP at least. I jumped the wall with 6 mins left, popped pills and syringes (3 / 2 receptively) when I could, found the AV fairly close to my entry point so managed to get that fairly easily but could not find weapon parts to craft the flare gun. Went to a point of interest and found another player taking on the AI. we were shooting from the outside scaffold in to the building and 2sec in the line of fire and I was down to a slim sliver of health, no health kits but had first aid skill (took time to recharge). Turns out the guy had a friend and we cleared the building, I got 4 div tech but with 2 mins left, had no hope and then they rushed to the LZ and popped a flare. I chased after them, helped with the hunters (they did most the work TBH) and then extracted with them with 1 min on the clock. Keep going, you never know what may happen in the DZ.

    Game takes hours to load

    Also, are you connecting to your ISP router via WiFi or via a network cable. Your ability to download takes in a number of factors... Source ability to supply the data (bandwidth / contention / storage speed etc). Internet congestion (New round of cute kitty picks / Kardashians butt on display again ?) ISP to players home connection speed (ISP package subscribed to). Players home to PS4 connection speed (WiFi / Lan cable). 13.4GB is quite significant on a slow connection. If you are connecting to your router via WiFi then run a network cable, even if just for the download and then go back to WiFi.
