  1. You want to be going to here: https://support.ubi.com/en-US At the top left of the black menu bar, there is a flag. Use that to select your country, and submit a ticket.
  2. What GPU for at least 50FPS

    15$? Damn. Can't pass up a monitor for that. My monitors are just ones I pulled out of the recycling closet from my old job... lol. Yeah, especially because that card is PCIe3. So defiantly some untapped performance there. But nonetheless, those are pretty good results. Even on the XW.
  3. What GPU for at least 50FPS

    Let this be guidance to us millennial's when we have disposable income. Buy 16:9 monitors. Or whatever is current then. Lord knows. We may have pet robot monkeys by then.
  4. Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC)

    To answer @Oh. daesu from this thread: http://www.thedivisionforums.com/topic/4832-what-gpu-for-at-least-50fps/?tab=comments#comment-28448 I currently have not taken any medical courses since Spring. I was working to become a certified EMR (Emergency Medical Responder), but the state of Ohio prohibits me from becoming so till I am 17 years of age, and/or am in my last year of secondary school. So I have to wait till next year. I responded to one medical incident back in October, and have dealt with suicidal and depressed individuals in the past, however. If you haven't read by posts in the past, I'm looking to commission as a Combat Rescue Officer in the United States Air Force. It's Tier 2 Special Operations that aeromedically evacuates wounded soldiers and civilians. It's one of a couple reasons I am interested in emergency and trauma medicine.
  5. What GPU for at least 50FPS

    Exactly what I meant. OBS is free, and pretty easy to use. I'd try that if you look into it. Made that post. We should move this conversation over to there, and not derail @genedjr's thread.
  6. Hey Agents, Thought I would talk a bit about a program here in the United States today, and hopefully, get some opinions on what you all think about it. Especially veterans. From my experiences, the older vets (WWII, Korea, Vietnam) all really like us, but so far, vets from onwards, such as the Global War On Terror (GOWT) are not as big of fans. Anyways, let's start. JROTC, or, the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, is a federally sponsored program by the U.S. Armed Forces. Each branch of the military maintains a corps. And yes, even the Coast Guard. But I believe the few that exist (as far as I know, they only have 2 or 3 units) are in Alaska. I may be wrong. Moving along. It's offered as a high school (secondary school) elective, typically lasting only a single period, and lead by retired veterans. One an Officer, the second an Enlisted. At least in AFJROTC, we call the Officer that SASI (Senior Aerospace Science Instructor) and the Enlisted the ASI (Aerospace Science Instructor). I myself have been a cadet for the past nearly 4 months now. C/AMN Scott, Flight F, Squadron OH-20052, AFJROTC. Each branch puts their initials in front of JROTC. AF being Air Force (Yay Chair Force!), A being Army, MC - Marine Corps, N - Navy, you get it. Also, regarding ranks, and addressing cadets. The C/ of C/AMN stands for Cadet. AMN = Airman, an actual USAF rank abbreviation. We do not hold that rank, we hold the cadet equivalent to it. Cadets are typically addressed as "Cadet", but by other cadets, it varies. Some units address each other by rank, but the majority just seem to do last names. I personally tend to address the cadet officers by rank. A question I get asked (and I assume many other cadets get asked) a lot is "Are you going into/are in the military?". Although we are in a program funded by it, no, we are not. We have no contract, service obligation, or anything. We are simply cadets. Now, if you do (some say serve, but again, some veterans do not like us saying that) 2 or more years in it, and decide to enlist in a branch, then you will get some benefits. I understand the wiki page says 3-4 years, but that is incorrect. I have heard, however, that each branch may handle it differently. This is what I know though. 2 years will get you E-2, and 3-4 years can get you E-3. I have heard that it is slightly different for the Marine Corps, and that it takes 3-4 years to get E-2 with them. A friend of mine did 2, and he has enlisted in the Corps. So I will check with him on that. Another question is if we get military training, and what do we learn from it. Military training, yes, and no. Is it like Basic Training? Absolutely not. But it will help you do better there, and obviously, once you graduate from it, you may get advanced rank. But this is not a mile run for PT every day, or even every week. It is not firearms, or tactics. It's not hell week, it's not anything near that. It is typically the more formal part of the Armed Forces. I'm talking marching, rank structure, uniform wear, courtesies, and for myself, also astronomy, and leadership and communication. There are teams, and guards you may join however. Armed, and unarmed exhibition, Honor and/or Color Guard, Raider Teams, and I have no idea how many units, if any at all, have air rifle teams anymore. I know the majority do not. I'm trying hard not to drag this out too long, so if you have questions, I will reply, but I'm trying to give a brief overall of it. To end things, I'll say what it's personally allowed me to do, and what I think of it. I haven't been in long, but some highlights have been being selected for my squadrons Raiders Team (Which is a physical fitness team), doing Color Guards, community service, parades, ceremonies, and using AN-PVS-7 Night Vision Goggles (I call them NVG's, or Nods, for short). My personal opinion of it, is that it's full of great experiences. Your under the supervision of veterans who have served 20+ years, and trust me, they have a great amount of knowledge and wisdom. Once you've been there for awhile, you can really start to look up to them, and be mentored even. That, in my mind, is invaluable. If you're looking to enlist, defiantly a good choice. Get a little ahead of other people, and go in with some knowledge that others won't have yet. If you don't plan to serve, you can still get some great experiences from it. You can even get scholarships. Which, nobody will really turn down. Any questions, opinions, or comments, are welcome!
  7. What GPU for at least 50FPS

    I would like to see how well it streams, personally. That seems to be the most stressful test you can run on a machine. Just eats at all your resources. At least from my experience. I have yet to get near Destiny 2 either, and that report is not the most reassuring. It is indeed. AFJROTC Full Service Dress. Considering talking about it on a post actually. You can read a bit about it on the link, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junior_Reserve_Officers'_Training_Corps) but it's enabled me to do some really awesome stuff, like use AN/PVS-7 NVG's.
  8. What GPU for at least 50FPS

    On a XW8400, it will bottleneck. No question. But I would like to see the results with Ryzen. See if they play nicely together for you. Hope you and your son enjoy some great gaming time!
  9. DX12 Renderer

    Hey TWSF, DirectX is really just an interface to send instructions to the GPU. DX12 being the newest version of that interface. Now, I personally have never seen a performance increase from it, but some people describe up to a 20FPS difference from DX11 to DX12. Assuming your GPU supports it, of course. Research whether your GPU supports DX12, and if it does, maybe give it a shot, and see if you have any performance increase.
  10. Finally joining the world of cosplay...

    Updated some things on the cosplay. Switched handguns, shirts, added some more stuff on the strap, and I have more gear getting ordered. Definitely getting better. (I've since adjusted the shears holster to face towards my right side, instead of straight up the strap.)
  11. Unable to switch to side arm or secondary weapon

    Reset your key bindings to default, then give us feedback on the result.
  12. Finally joining the world of cosplay...

    Alright! Now for those of you interested in what medical gear I carry, My IFAK in an Condor Outdoor Rip-Away EMT pouch. It doesn't meet MARCH (M - Massive Bleeding or Hemorrhaging A - Airway R - Respiration C - Circulation H - Head Injury or Hypothermia) yet, but it eventually will. This is what I've had around, and been able to stock it with currently. ----------------------------------- Acetaminophen (500mg Tablets) (4) Adhesive Bandages (Assorted) (47) Antiseptic Towelettes (13) Aspirn (325mg Tablets) (2) Benadryl (25mg Diphenhydramine Tablets) (4) Burnaid Burn Gel (3.5g) (1) Cortizone 10 (1oz cream) (1 tube) Eye Pad (4.1 cm x 6.7 cm) Fabric Bandages (Assorted) (4) Foam padded aluminum splint Gauze Pads (7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) (1) Gauze Pads (5 cm x 5 cm) (5) IBUPROFEN (200mg Tablets (2) Leatherman Raptor Shears (typically carried on my belt however) (1) Neomycin Ointment (.9g) (4) Penlight (1) Q Tips (10) Surgical Tape (1) Survival Blanket (84" L x 52" W) (1) Trauma Pad (12.7 cm x 22.86 cm) (1)
  13. V-Sync monitor vs. Gsync NVidia GPU

    Oh quinch, you and you're satanic rituals...
  14. V-Sync monitor vs. Gsync NVidia GPU

    What are his system specifications?... Can you give us a DXDiag? Just because the monitor is 144Hz, does not mean it will stay at that. It just means that is how high it can go up to. I personally don't notice a difference about 60FPS, but some people like the idea of 144Hz monitors. If that's you, knock yourself out. I think the fact it's an AMD FreeSync monitor paired with a 1080 is definitely a probable cause, but to be honest with you, I wouldn't know how to test the monitor to verify that. I will say this though, V-Sync always caused more problems than it fixed for me. Even CAUSING screen tearing for me. I turn it off, smooth and silky. I'm not sure why, but it seems some peoples systems run that way. I know I'm not alone on that front, as I have heard quite a few times the same issue from others. Maybe something worth trying. To top this reply off, I'll say I don't know of a software work-a-round myself. It absolutely is insane to spend that much and have it not work as intended, but I find that's common in the tech industry. I know a guy who bought an Alienware laptop, 3 months in it burns out. Sends it in to get replaced, replacement burns out. Was something like 1500$. You REALLY have to be careful, and put hours into research on hardware. You can't watch a dozen videos and decide off those. Watch, listen, and read everything you can.
  15. Finally joining the world of cosplay...

    Back with more gear pictures! Got my Leatherman Raptor Shears, 3M Half mask respirator, and IFAK all in there. I'll be posting again soon what I keep in my IFAK currently, in case anybody wondered what medical gear I'm always carrying. Been looking a lot more at getting a CYMA M870 to use as my primary weapon. There's a full metal one by them with a fixed stock and full barrel that has been calling my name the past couple weeks... Keep an eye on this space!
