    Hello

    I don't know what you mean by trying to access download. There is no download here. Welcome to Kametsu anyhow. Maybe you'll stick around.

  3. If you’ve ever wondered what it actually costs when one of these big video game services are giving away “free” games, well, the bill for the Epic Games Store was $11.6 million for the first 10 months of its existence. The information came to light on Monday as part of Epic Games’ lawsuit vs. Apple Computer. Writer and video game historian Simon Carless said a spreadsheet showing 38 titles, given away between December 2018 and September 2019, was “accidentally published early” as part of a trove of lawsuit documents and exhibits. The giveaways released during that period reveal interesting data points about how much Epic Games paid for the privilege to hand out free games in an effort to lure in new users. The first game released as part of that promotional push, Subnautica, proved to be one of the store’s most popular, with 4.6 million entitlements, netting Epic more than 800,000 new accounts. Subnautica was also one of the most expensive buyouts for Epic at $1.4 million. That worked out to a cost of $1.74 per new Epic account, which would appear to be a solid return on Epic’s investment here. Other games, like Super Meat Boy, Rime, For Honor, World of Goo, and the Jackbox Party Pack, earned Epic new users for about 50 cents each — in part because Epic paid far less (between $45,000 and $63,000) for those older titles than it paid for games like Subnautica, Mutant Year Zero ($1 million), or the Batman Arkham series ($1.5 million). Metro: 2033 Redux is listed as costing Epic zero dollars to buyout, but that apparent anomaly seems to be a result of Metro Exodus’ Epic Games Store one-year exclusivity in 2019. More interesting than the amount of money Epic threw around for these freebies, though, is the "UA Cost" column (aka user acquisition), which is the buyout price divided by the number of new Epic Store accounts that each game attracted. That metric, indie developer Rami Ismail said on Twitter, demonstrates that indie games are a very big part of attracting audiences: Big releases like the Arkham games draw huge raw numbers, but games like Oxenfree, Hyper Light Drifter, Super Meat Boy, and Fez add up—and at a fraction of the cost, too. In spite of all that expense and the number of users who have created accounts in exchange for free games, the actual impact of the regular givaways seems relatively minimal. The document indicates that only about 7% of EGS users who have acquired at least one free game have also made a purchase through the storefront, which does not strike me as a very impressive conversion rate. The numbers only go to mid-2019, which mean the doc doesn't tell us how much Epic spent for some of 2020's high profile giveaways, like Grand Theft Auto 5, and whether Epic's UA costs started to climb noticeably over time. If the chief goal is to attract new users, diminishing returns means it's going to become increasingly difficult to do so—and, you'd have to think, too costly to continue doing so at some point. Regardless of how it decides to proceed with weekly giveaways in future years, there's still a long way to go before the Epic Games Store stops burning money: CEO Tim Sweeney acknowledged in April that the Epic Store isn't currently profitable because "it has front-loaded its marketing and user acquisition costs to gain market share." He doesn't expect it to start making money until 2027.

  9. Speaking in David Jaffe's latest interview video, Days Gone director John Garvin has strong feelings on the sequel situation. "I do have an opinion on something that your audience may find of interest, and it might piss some of them off," Garvin admits. "If you love a game, buy it at fucking full price. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen gamers say ‘yeah, I got that on sale, I got it through PS Plus, whatever.’" Garvin's argument is that by buying a game at full price, you're showing direct support for the developer — you're doing your part to maximise profit. And in the case of Days Gone, Garvin's suggesting that if more people grabbed the game at launch, Sony may have been more open to a potential sequel. Jaffe asks how buyers would know if they love a game before they've even played it. Garvin replies: "I’m just saying, you don’t, but don’t complain if a game doesn’t get a sequel if it wasn’t supported at launch." Garvin continues: "I think the uptick in engagement with the game is not as important as, did you buy the game at full price? Because if you did, then that’s supporting the developers directly." Of course, it's not always that simple. The obvious truth here is that not everyone can afford to buy games on release. For many, gaming is an expensive luxury — and suggesting that these people are, in part, at fault for Days Gone's lack of a sequel is a slippery slope. We would hope that Garvin knows this, and he's just trying to make a point, but it doesn't come across particularly well.
  10. Patch 1.2 Release Notes Some new Features and Bug Fixes We have fixed some reported bugs and also introduced two new features requested by fans. Here is a list of changes: Fix a potential crash issue in very specific situations with some combinations of camera angles and field of view options Fix some more minor translation and typography issues New Feature: Add an option to disable the motion blur effect while running New Feature: Add the ability to select a specific target refresh rate in the launcher, instead of always defaulting to the highest available Improve crash dump generation to enable us to provide better support; crash dumps are stored in the windows temporary files folder ("%TEMP%/ToCS4") so as not to permanently occupy storage space Note: If you still see intermittent stuttering issues on systems with generally good performance, they might be shader cache related. Please look here for instructions on how to resolve them. While we expect this patch to improve the situations for all users, with the great variety of hardware and software configurations available on PC this is not always guaranteed in all circumstances. As such, you can return to previous versions of the game by selecting the any of the public "version_*" branches on Steam.

  13. Patch 1.1.1 Release Notes A Hotfix for Audio and Button Prompts While it is great to hear that yesterday's 1.1 patch improved the game experience for a lot of people, it also introduced an audio regression for some. Also, the feature to disable dynamic button prompts was not fully working as expected. This version 1.1.1 hotfix should resolve these issues. Here is a list of changes since 1.1: Rewrite audio backend processing to eliminate artifacts and further improve performance. Fix the "disable dynamic button prompt" feature not actually solving the performance issues it was designed to solve. Note: If you still see intermittent stuttering issues on systems with generally good performance, they might be shader cache related. Please look here for instructions on how to resolve them. While we expect this patch to improve the situations for all users, with the great variety of hardware and software configurations available on PC this is not always guaranteed in all circumstances (as we saw with 1.1). As such, you can return to the release version of the game by selecting the public "version_102" branch in Steam, and to 1.1 by selecting the "version_110" branch.
  14. Patch 1.1 Release Notes Optimization, bug fixes, and a new feature Hi everyone, Hopefully you are enjoying Trails of Cold Steel IV! We have created a new version which fixes various issues pointed out by the community. Here is a list of changes: Reduce the CPU usage of several threads, particularly in audio playback. These changes can greatly reduce overall CPU usage in some situations. Introduce additional caching to decrease load times, especially when revisiting previous maps and after battles. This will be particularly effective for longer play sessions. Fix save game thumbnails sporadically not showing up under specific circumstances. Adjust overall loading behavior to be closer to Trails of Cold Steel 3, in order to mitigate issues on some systems. Prevent the game from taking abnormally long to close on some systems. Make left joystick and WASD (or alternative mapping) behavior consistent across all menus. Fix button re-mapping involving X and O buttons along with displayed button prompts. Fix some remaining minor translation issues in game and launcher New Feature: Add configuration tool option to disable dynamic button prompt switching (primarily for Steam Controller users) Note: If you still see intermittent stuttering issues on systems with generally good performance, they might be shader cache related. Please look here for instructions on how to resolve them. While we expect this patch to improve the situations for all users, with the great variety of hardware and software configurations available on PC this is not always guaranteed in all circumstances. As such, you can return to the release version of the game by selecting the public "version_102" branch in Steam.
