[Update] Elite Dangerous: Beyond - April Update (2019-04-23)

Postby cyberbofh » Tue Apr 23, 2019 1:35 am

CMDRs,

The Elite Dangerous servers will be offline for all platforms from Tuesday morning (April 23rd) for the April Update.
(Frontier didn't mention a start time, so we can only guess 09:00 UTC)

The downtime is expected to last for approximately 6 hours

There is a chance that this might take longer.. Don’t Panic!

I doubt that will change the effect from gankers as much as they pretty much destroy any other tactic for PvP than ubertank.

A cutter gank team jumping a type-6 was always a very one sided fight.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Nice main menu, i like it.

Apart from that, nothing works at all. I guess the servers are still down or overloaded. I'll give it a try this weekend.

Also, there seems to be an egregious issue with the post FX settings.

Settings that has been yelding me near solid 90fps in vr before patch now starts locked to 45fps, and in less than a minute drops below 30fps.
This isn't just for VR but a lot of players are reporting at least 50% drop in performance unless you completely turn off POST-FX.

My module priorities reset every time I go out then back in game.

Almost impossible to use mouse to sell large amounts of items, using keyboard disables mouse completely for selling until sale is completed keyboard only.

Jump countdown is only coming out of right ear for me.

Can't enter map while jump countdown is in progress.

So many issues, so situation normal I guess :roll:

FSS seems to be working much smoother for me though so big plus for that!
