@ComebackLogic Im in the same boat, elaborate please.
I have an ASUS monitor, it’s not ultra modern by any means, I kept it for the PlayStation when I got rid of my PC. The settings aren’t very varied and I usually don’t touch them at all. It does have a display setting for games and graphics however. When I had a power cut, it had reset itself to default settings, which disabled the graphics mode I’d always had on. I assume it’s the equivalent of putting a TV into game mode, removing any overlays which cause delay in response time and frame rate in favour of improved appearance.
So what settings, exactly, are you using?
Right, this Acer monitor has extremely limited settings. When you go into the display settings you have brightness up and down, sharpness up and down, colour tint (warm, cool etc). I changed the temperature tone, it was on warm, which I don’t usually use, so I set it to cool and upped the brightness. That made me wonder why it had changed to the warm setting I don’t usually use, so I looked for more settings. The only other setting that was for the display was a button that apparently shifts through a bunch of preselected settings. Options like “user” “movie” “standard” “eco” and “graphics”. Not expecting any change more significant than an alteration to flesh tones, sharpness and all the stuff I’d been adjusting manually in the limited settings, I selected the option for “graphics” anyway.
Went back to the game and I was like wtf. I can see the ball a lot better. It was like there were more frames. Tried a swing to see how it felt and yanked a 102mph Nate Pearson fastball out for a home run. I was like hmm, maybe. Next batter R v R, turned another one around, early/good. I was like ooooooh this is gonna be a game changer. No problems hitting now apart from the problems I’ve always had (I suck at hitting, mostly). The difference is, I don’t feel helpless at all. I can be too late on a fastball and that’s fine, because I know I can hit it, provided I’m tracking the ball and I get my foot down. It’s challenging facing 102 on HoF, but it’s in no way an impossible task, which is how I felt before and was killing my enjoyment of the game. I had fun hitting yesterday for the first time since launch, even when I got my [censored] kicked, even when I got blown away by sinkers. Now if we can stop pitches from randomly hanging on slightly missed meters and have outfielders catch balls at the wall, I’ll be happy.
