Any idea what is was all about, as no notes - something about caching regarding Open GL and Vulkan?

Yeah that is something they mentioned on Steam forums, nothing official yet. Bug fixes and Vulkan stuff. (More stable supposedly)


Is this thing on?

Eh, that's disappointment. I wonder how much development time they are going to lose to getting Vulkan to work, hope it isn't taking time away from expanding content.

Given how badly Vulkan worked on my machine I wish they just shelve Vulkan and focus on the system that works.

First of all Vulkan works great, it gives me about 60+ extra FPS, if it does not work on your machine, well, to bad for you. Also, other then classes and races, you won't get any new content in EA. Just bug fixes and mechanical changes. Anyway, they should not drop Vulkan because it does not work for you, you are not the only player out there.

@cylion We're all very lucky to be in the presence of somebody who works for the company and really has the inside track. Or perhaps you just that much smarter than the rest of us and can divine details from official announcement that mere mortals cannot?

In either case thank you so much for this valuable contribution to the discussion.

Um, the devs had said more classes and content WILL come to early access? So I don't know what this is about

Classes and races yes, no new quests or locations.

They've said that it'll only have act 1 in the EA, not that there won't be any extra content. It's not actually clear that we've reached the end of act 1 - for starters, they've said that you'd be forced to commit to a party instead of having access to everyone at the end of act 1, and there doesn't seem to be anything like that happening yet. Secondly, there's still all of the content specific to playing as an origin character that's missing from act 1.

And you know 'content' /= quests or locations, how, exactly?

I mean anyone who comes across as aggressive and cocksure must really know what they are talking about, right?

Don't worry, The team that is responsible for tech stuff is not the same creating content. Different teams are working on totally different stuff. Just because one team is working to fix hardware/software issues or try to improve their performance, doesnt mean the content creating team is doing nothing.

And don't lose sight of the most important things. It doesn't matter how much sub classes are in the game if it doesn't run properly

Vulcan is a newish alternative to DX11/12 which are drivers needed to run games - Vulcan is supposedly 30-40% faster than the other options.

Vulcan is a huge improvement in performance on my machine - DX11 runs like poo. I have an I9 7700 and a 1080ti. I think Vulcan struggles on older hardware /shrug.
