PromptCritical is creating a series of reports which collate data points. We're matching this up to changes we've made in the game and identify where things are going wrong. It'll help resolve current issues and give us a heads up on future problems.

So after reviewing, this isn't much of a surprise and falls in line with what we expect hitching to originate from. Autenil's comment: Unsurprised here. Although it would be nice to know what operation is causing the spikes when we have low memory situations. I'm speculating that it's the VirtualAlloc calls in the MemoryManager or some other memory allocation operation, but it would be nice to have empirical evidence. Regardless, we can improve our overall memory usage and probably reduce per-frame churn.

Action for now: We're changing system to not use virtual RAM and testing that out internally.

They are a bit harder than you might believe but yes they are in process with an undetermined release date. We'll obviously let you guys know when we are close.

Not gold, but there will be some exclusive cosmetic variants. Waiting for Bishop to finish them up but we'll be showing them off soon.

^ Yep. PTS is nowhere near accurate.

We are looking into issues with our EU servers which are unfortunately taking some time to resolve. We know it's frustrating but we have folks who are dedicated to continue working on this until it's resolved.

Possible? Definitely.

But its a matter of taking someone off their current tasks to figure out how much time it would take and what else would need to get done to make it work.

At the bare minimum it would take 2 coder's to make it work. One that deals with how the assets are exported into the game and another to update the UI to give players the option to turn on and off camo.

So will this happen in the immediate future, probably not. But if enough people want it to happen, it can always get slipped in somewhere. But it means other things get pushed back.

To be clear - this was a bug, and a fix was just checked in that'll be going up with the next Test build. It's not a communist plot by the illuminati to turn PC players into batteries =)

(...but's that's just what I'd say if it WAS a plot and I was in on it, right?)

Thanks for the thorough reporting/testing - we'll take a look.

I believe I corrected that issue some time ago, is it still not accepting camo?

Our train of thought has always been: If someone buys camo, and buys a helmet, they should get to use both at the same time.

There is probably equal parts people who want to use the camo on the beret vs those who don't. But i'll chat with some folks and see if we want to remove the camo from them..

As stated above these were removed for non-members in a recent update. Members still get their passive certs.

It's a step on the ladder from what we get after auto turrets. Nothing from H1 yet, but we may take their pathing stuff soon.

We have guys who have specialties. There's probably @ 6 guys off the top of my head who could solve this...but it'd take them 5x the amount of time it'll take the guy who is familiar with the system. So it gets queued up behind hitching, so we can move forward with the other guys working on things are are more familiar with, if that makes sense.

The Elam is never a joke. The Elam is always very, very serious.
