So evidently this game and no other is heating up my video card. I was wondering if there was any thoughts on a fix besides buying another video card?

 

Yeah, I've been having the same issue.

If you have any software that came with the card - get it running and see if it can give you some control over the fan speed. My card was stupid enough to leave the fan on a low speed despite getting up to 90C and suffering numerous resets before I discovered the issue (seems the fan speed is software dependant, rather than built into firmware (the height of stupidity).

Now I can play with temps not exceeding 60C with the fans going at 80% of max. I get some artifacts, possibly from permanent damage done to the card (thanks, Pimps), but no more resets.

Any other game and it runs cool, with zero artifacting. It's just 7D2D that is brutal to it.

Weeeell, there are people on all sides (there are more than 2) who strongly feel that their version of what a zombie is must be the right one for everyone. ;)

 

A real zombie is

* a weaker Human

*Weaker bones and skull

* not able to smash a wood door

* Walks only

* works as song as the brain is intact

* Solar driven ? (can rest very long in darkness)

 

* So damn infectious that one scratch or bite will kill every human

 

But 7D2D´s interpretation,... i can life with, mostly ^^

Huh?

 

-Stronger than human but slow

-Doesnt care about pain so can smash through wood ez even if bones break it doesnt care

-Driven by smell, food, living flesh, brainsss (not solar powered)

-Moves faster/ hunts at night (Sunlight slows them down, in some cases can kill them or just make them extremely lethargic)

-Travels in packs (mainly because so many ppl get turned at the same time they just end up moving together)

-Infectious if saliva or blood touches open wound.

 

- The 1 I agree with is you gotta smash their brain.

 

But this is all totally subjective since "real" zombies are just as made up (imagination) as "fake" zombies.

Make it so half the player base has 7 Days to Die Blue version and the other half has 7 Days to Die Red version and the only way to get complete sets of books is to trade with people who have the other version. Gotta catch em all...

 

Or kill them all :strawberry::greedy_dollars:

show me a video of you destroying blocks (wood,concrete etc) with your bare hands (let alone rotting ones lol)

I've already got my horse and soapbox out and I'm fully prepared to gallop it up the moral high ground :-)

There's a bit of a trick to it but, with a bit of practice and a lot of physics, humans can indeed smash through concrete.

 

 

I'm going to assume the zombies studied Karate at the same university where they studied structural engineering :-)

but only if the rocks are painted red/blue/yellow and we have the chance of a player turning into a Zombie (Ditto)

I finished my thoughts as i read "porno magazines"

 

well, even World of Warcraft has "porn magazines" in the game... and thats rated PEGI 12 ..... but, yeah, they are kinda well written :D

So, something to read in the nights where you want to stay in your base and have nothing to craft, would be nice. At least, if you want and don't have to read...

I have no clue what you are talking about. I am not a fictional zombie, what I can do is irrelevant. Also I have lots of pics of me breaking through wood as a child during martial arts training.

 

In relation to the game, it would make sense that as they break a block their limbs get ground down to nothing, and they could only get through concrete with a group hitting the same block. But then where would the threat be, meh.

Just mentioning, I have posted this on the bug forum but not correctly I guess. Anyway, I absolutely love this game and have been playing it for a while now. Yet ever since 17.1 came out I have been unable to play it for more then 45 minutes at a time as it freezes my pc up. No other game does this. Then I took my PC into a different room that was much colder and was able to play it without issue. So evidently this game and no other is heating up my video card. I was wondering if there was any thoughts on a fix besides buying another video card?

 

Also check if all your fans are still working and turning when the PC is on. Don't use anything metallic to test this, use your eyes and a lamp. Or a wooden pencil if you really can't get a view.

 

The 45 minutes seem to indicate that your PC is slowly heating up. Doesn't sound like a hardware defect of GPU or CPU but more like a failure to get the heat out of the case. So maybe clean the air filters possibly installed in your case. If this doesn't help, speed up the fans (in the BIOS) or add new ones (but make sure they support the current airflow direction).

Is this your input or are you speaking for The Fun Pimps Roland?

Let me get the obvious out of the way first: No game can heat up a video card beyond it's design specs aka running under max load.

 

Now the #1 thing to do is to get all the dust out. That can seriously hamper cooling.

 

After that it's hard to tell. Bad air flow / positioning of devices in the case? An extra fan for the case would certainly be tons cheaper than a new video card.

I think a cool book would be one that documents the fall of civilization.

 

"At first we thought these aberrations were like the plain and simple "zombies" of pop culture lore. However, we couldn't have been more wrong. Whatever metamorphic process has changed them to bestial feral monsters has also hardened their flesh and bones and caused them to ooze or in some cases actually vomit highly acidic fluid. They can pound their way through wood, stone, and even metal as it dissolves and breaks down beneath their acid secreting fists. They are relentless in their hunger for human flesh. In that way they are what we expected of zombies but these creatures are as far above zombies as a rabid wolf is above a cocker spaniel puppy."

 

Then FINALLY we would have some established lore to help all the Romerophiles finally make the leap over their immersion gap and maybe stop posting to tell us what zombie-like creatures should or should not do... ;-)

 

Many don't like the Romero zeds either, if they did, they would be fine with zeds getting smarter as time goes on, and using tools.

Also, make sure your PC case is far enough away from the back for air clearance. I run a i7 4570k processor/liquid cooled - I have to have the back of my pc away from the wall at least 1 foot for adequate cooling.

All the main Romero films include smart zombies - there's also Roger in Dawn, Bub in Day, and Big Daddy in Land.

 

I've said before that I'd love to see smart "ringleader" zombies in the game who can lead other zombies around traps and things and would therefore be a priority to take out. I think that's much better than the superpowered zombies we currently have.

OOOOO Snickers bars! I love those. Please tell me that they are going to be in the game. Yes? :)

 

Come and get them.

With the advent of random blood moons and variable zombie speed it would be a good idea if the backstory for the zombies was vague enough to account for all of these without obvious logical fallacies.

 

The cause of the zombie outbreak is unlikely to cause much controversy but it would be fantastic if TFP ran with the idea of it all being down to the sham products. It hits the spot for good sci-fi being a morality tale. In this case it would be the horrors of lab grown food, GMO, and corporate callousness which are often in the news these days.
