  • No, everything does not "go back to normal" because if you turn off crossplay then you will only be matched with other people on the same platform as you who have also disabled crossplay. You will not be matched with people on your own platform that have crossplay enabled if you have it disabled. As an Xbox player that…
  • Watching Bahroo play DBD before it was out on console. I liked it so when Bahroo was not playing I started to watch Hexy & Pug play instead. Then DBD finally released on console so I bought it.
  • I was just about to post the same thing, you know it's comming now at some point, one of them stupid power gauge boxes around your power icon that has to fill up again before you can use your power. They are a "feature" of most of the modern killers with the old original ones not having one such as Nurse/Billy but after…
  • Another thing, "Xbox One X enhancement". In a game that needs to run at a higher frame rate why would an "enhancement" patch be a GOOD thing? Look at games like The Elder Scrolls Online where the enhancement patch gives higher resolutions and improves textures at the COST of frame rate. PS4 Pro in boost mode at 1080p no…
  • The game runs great on X1X since 2.7 and it's about to get another "BIG" performance improvement this June with chapter 12 as per the roadmap. The 2.7 update brought optimization improvements which on X1X sees survivor hitting 60fps and killer a little behind but it's BY FAR the best performance the game as seen in a long…
  • 1 Haddonfield, 1 Meat Plant and 1 Hospital map is ALL we need of those horrible "tilesets" (killer main), personally I'd even say 1 is 1 too many ;P
  • BBQ Adrenaline This thread is going to turn into a thread about weather or not you should use Ruin though, just you watch. It's already started and the thread only has a handful of replies.
  • Indeed, runs just fine as survivor and a little bit less so as killer but still great on the 1X. I can still remember launch day on the original Xbox back then what we had was terrible. I'd love to see some sort of frame rate counter on the 1X version todayy with 2.7, I'd wager it's running between 50-60fps depending on…
  • Runs great on mine almost as good as other 60fps titles such as Overwatch, Warframe, BO 4 etc. No idea why its bad on your 1X though, I use a 50" 1080p (non HDR no 4k) TV but can't see why that would make it run better on mine compared to yours.
  • I really wish you could see how amazing the game runs now on the X1X which is also "on console". (50-60fps) I wonder if all those still on the original base PS4/Xbox will invest in the PS5 (announced) or Xbox 2 (if they call it that) which may be as early as 2020. How old are the base consoles now anyway, (looked it up)…
  • Yep as unbelievable as it sounds (for the X1X at least) 60fps has become a reality. I didn't think they would do it when they made that statement post about it either but the last patch has been amazing for the 1X. I'd imagine the PS4 Pro is looking good too but there's probably more work needed for the original PS4/Xbox…
  • yeah, I edited my post a little :)
  • This is a PR disaster but he looks very well designed and rogue ish. Seems really easy to notice he's there though due to the red stain and the terror radius only going away for a couple of seconds. Should wait until PTB before making any assumptions but he does look really cool and very creepy. Imagine him on dark outdoor…
  • X1X Player and this new update has made a drastic improvement to the games frame rate, if I had to guess I'd say survivor is 60fps and killer around 50fps based of other games that I know run at 60fps such as Overwatch. Amazing job, now if they can just add mouse support it would be ideal considering keyboard support is…
  • Survivor on X1X is easilly 60fps, yes 60fps. It runs as well as Overwtach for example which is a 60fps game. Killer is a little behind but not much, even playing as Doctor on maps like the Game or the Hospital map is decent now. Killers such as Billy on older maps like Shelter Woods feels very close to 60fps as well. DBD…
  • I IMMEDIATELY noticed those about 2 seconds into the animation as well. It's as if they were added to his design just to make sure that he's not super hard to notice and to give survivors a chance at spotting him before he get's too close. If they float and flap about as he moves he will stand out a lot more than if he…
  • It's already out on Xbox by the way.
  • On my Xbox One X todays patch has made the game run tremendously better. It was good with the last patch too but todays performance increase is nothing short of amazing considering how bad this game ran just before Christmas. I think PS4/Pro users are reporting the same, are you guys both on the original Xbox/S?
  • On the 1X the frame rate is FAR better than pre 2.6 (playing Trapper on Autohaven map last night felt like near 60fps) and it doesn't appear blurry to me at least. There does seem to be some kind of slight "fish eye" thing going on though, the kind of thing you see when you increase FOV above 90 in other games. The frame…
  • It isn't 30fps locked, at least not on X1X. Feels closer to 45-50 when playing on the older maps like Coldwind / McMillan. Especially with less demanding killers such as Trapper or Billy.
  • Just played Trapper on Coldwind and when it's down to 1v1 the killer frame rate feels like the tutorial, 60fps. If you can just squeeze some more optimization out of it I'd say the game running at 60fps regardless of killer/map and player count is certainly doable, at least on the X1X anyway. Now to try Doc on a map like…
  • For the frame rate to not be crap on console, I guess PS5 and Xbox 2 in 2020/21 might do it if BHVR can't.
  • You mentioned The Division, the new Division 2 goes live for the standard edition on the 15th or rather on the stroke of midnight just as Thursday ends your local time. That's 22 hours from now at time of writing.
  • The patch notes say this: "Feature - Integrated an updated version of the Unreal Engine (4.21, from 4.20)." "This update also contains some additional optimizations for all platforms" It says both of those lines here: That appears to indicate two things, an upgrade to 4.21 Unreal Engine and some additional optimization as…
  • Unreal Engine 4.20 -> 4.21 and "optimization improvements across all platforms" was in the patch notes for the PTB so we "should" see some kind of improved frame rate (not 60fps though) when it goes live. I'll be no life'ing it up on The Division 2 by then tough so I'll check the forum instead :)
  • The tutorial runs at 60fps as killer on the 1X already btw, not quite the same thing but still it shows that the game "can" do it. A large factor in frame rate on the console version when playing as the killer has to do with player count, as each survivor dies and is removed from the game in turn the frame rate…
  • Native mouse and keyboard support rolled out for Xbox One in November 2018: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2018/11/14/november-2018-xbox-update-available-now/ "Mouse and Keyboard Support for Xbox One As revealed by Phil Spencer on the September episode of Inside Xbox, the November update brings mouse and keyboard support to…

  • Been playing the Overwatch winter event atm, the DBD one is next week? Thought they didn't say when it was yet, at least it's something to look forward to next week then :)
  • I just tried this on Xbox as well which just got native mouse and keyboard support (game devs still need to support it in their game) and I was able to use WASD to move as well. I plugged in a mouse but sadly it didn't operate the camera, I also noticed that if you hold enter on the keyboard on the pre-lobby screen the…
  • Just left the dev stream where they said that optimisation is a PASS (not a patch) and that it's... (wait for it) an "ongoing process" so I wouldn't hold your breath for a patch to fix the frame rate in the next 2 weeks of December. I don't want to complain too much because the unreal engine upgrade made the game run…
  • Ask them on today's dev stream, I know I will be doing so too. Hopefully we get some info and/or confirmation it's still comming in December as there's only a couple of weeks left.
  • In the patch notes the new "map scheduler" was added to the game and the general consensus is that the new map has been tuned to appear more often at the moment, which certainly "seems" to be the case.
  • It's sharper, brighter and runs a little bit better due to the unreal engine upgrade that the game runs on which was included in this update along witht he new chapter. The patch to address optimisation later in December should see a big difference.
  • Nowhere near PC performance (as killer) hopefully the upcoming optimisation patch later this month will improve the frame rate substantially, I'd check back then.
  • I play in 720p on the One X and since the update to the new unreal engine the frame rate is better but far from good enough, oh that's playing as the killer BTW. I hope this update did NOT include the "optomisation patch" too because if it did... oh dear. However, if the optomisation patch is still to come then should be…
  • Hillbilly Hang Man's Trick - Iron Grasp - Agitation - Ruin Had enough survivor chops for the hammer in somewhere between 2-3 hours, it was easy. Although I did have a BBQ offering every game on top of the default 2 you start with. 90 Generators seems like the more long winded task to me especially considering the reward…
  • Wonder how long it will be before he comes back "again". When someone REALLY quits a game you don't make a goodbye video/speech or a big long post on forums as to why you're quitting etc. People who do that just want the developers to take note and change the game so they can keep playing because they're addicted and don't…
  • Yes it's fine by me , I don't mind survivors trying to sabo event hooks, I'll just use Hangman's Trick like last time during the Howling Grounds event where it was no problem then too, I enjoyed the challenge of it tbh. Good luck doing event generators and any generator as it's the build I usually use to slow the game down…
  • Yes because it will be hard to get special gens (or ANY gens) done vs that build, that has nothing to do with camping speical generators only.
  • Trying to stop survivors doing generators as the killer particularly the special ones for the event is neither petty or being a bad apple and has nothing to do with trolling. I'll be going for any generator that is being worked on weather it's an event generator or not, regardless of that it will still be difficult to get…
  • Don't want the Kate cosmetic so that's half the work needed. I want that hammer for Billy though so here's what I'll do. When I need the hammer by getting special hooks: Hang Man's Trick - Agitation - Iron Grasp - Ruin When I have earned enough to qualify for the hammer: Overcharge - Pop Goes the Weasel - BBQ n Chilli -…
  • "There wasn't even one good point for killers in this Q&A" That's what I got from it too. I watched a near 30 minute video preview of things comming in Chapter 9 and the good things for killer to look forward to was... 0, zero, nothing.
  • Me too, on X1X though not PC.
  • Probably the store bug. If you so much as even click on the "store" icon then try to play a match you will experience a soft freeze or "hiccup" every few seconds until you restart the game. This bug was introduced when they recently added the new Ace, Dwight and "white hair" Meg skins. Restarting the game fixes it as long…
  • Use the ping indicator shown in the bottom right during the lobby screen. If your connection to the killer is bad then instead of clicking "ready", leave to find a new game.
  • In the video you are INJURED (and have a medkit that has maximum charges) then he downs you and it reveals NOED, how was this clip demonstrating him being carried by NOED?
  • Just be careful what you write or say to people when you message them regardless of what they say to you because if you don't report them their message goes unnoticed but if they report you it could result in a comms ban or worse. You cannot get banned from reports, such as "unsporting" or "quit early" etc no matter how…
  • Indeed, it's one of the best quality of life changes killer has had in a long time. Let's hope they don't give in to the pressure from the minority that's vocal on the forum (people tend to only complain on the forum, happy satisfied peple just continue to play the game) and stand by their decision to implement this step…
  • Feels just right to me, always hated the old pick up speed how slow and clunky it felt. Really glad they made this welcome change looking forward to the hatch and DS changes now, hope they don't take too long.
  • And how do you de-rank from 16-20? rank reset? because you cannot de-rank between 16-20 when the next patch comes. Ranks 20 to 16 will never lose pips even if you leave the match on purpose. If you do mean by rank reset you wont get many games before you have to bench yourself and not play anymore until the rank reset, not…

  • He won't be able to do that next patch.

  • Just in case anyone couldn't be bothered to read the opening post by the topic creator, he's not talking about camping and tunneling killers, quite the opposite. He is talking about survivors camping a generator by not leaving the area until it's complete, he's also talking about survivors tunneling a generator by staying…
  • Doesn't look like it, he probably assumed the TC was talking about camping and tunneling killers... spoiler: he wasn't. I like the openinng post, it's the equivalent of survivors camping and tunneling generators and it made me laugh.
  • Ok then, we will see if it comes out this week, if not you're wrong, if so I'm wrong, 4 days to go including today. Oh and "millennial" "kiddo" ? I was born in 1974, you?
  • As someone that usually stays at rank 20 as killer on console even though I have over 1500 hours and 1400/1700 achievement points on DBD I can tell you what I was doing and what I will be doing. What I was doing is as soon as I hit rank 18 I would throw 3 games and be back at rank 20, it only takes 6 pips to go from 20-18.…
  • Maybe on PC let's hope so, on console? NO CHANCE.
  • Indeed, after the exhaustion nerf Sprint Burst should have an EXTRA nerf to address it.
  • "No, it doesn't. People who want to harass rank 20s clearly don't care about their rank and will just DC if they think they're going to pip from a match." They also never lose so they will have to DC every game, do you think NEVER earning BP/shards for the rest of the games lifetime will be something they want to do? They…
  • Read somewhere on here that the next 3 are original, Curtain Call was 1 so that's 2 more. If the next chapter did turn out to be licenced I'd just spend the 18,000 I'd saved on cosmetics instead and get 18,000 more in the 3 months before the next chapter again. I'll always bank 18,000 before a chapter regardless so it's…
  • I prioritise getting 18,000 for the next chapters killer and survivor at 9,000 shards per killer and per survivor. After that I spend shards on cosmetics. I get more bloodpoints than I'd ever need by playing killer with BBQ and a party streamer/pudding. Allready have every teachable unlocked so don't need shards for those…
  • I think you mean Dance With Me which is the one that hides scratch marks when you vault. Windows of Oppertunity shows all pallets and vault locations as yellow auras until you use one in a chase.
  • As killer: 3 kills or better. As survivor: +1 pip or better. However, I consider the following a "draw": As killer: 2 kills 2 escapes. As survivor: a safety pip. This is a loss: As killer: 1 kill or worse As survivor: -1 pip or worse.
  • People still think that the hatch change and DS nerf will actually make it into the live game this year? Early 2019 more like it after a handfull of new "revisions" before they actually decide on something and bother to implement it in a patch.
  • Guessing Tusday 24th July for the patch.
  • Yes it was. Losing a generator in the opening seconds was FAR too strong, then factor in that there can be as many as 4 of them per trial. The dev stream where they announced the BNP nerf also had the following buff's to BNP: * Rareity changed to Purple 6000 bloodpoint cost, will be in the bloodweb a lot more often. * No…
  • He's the only strong killer console has (Nurse and Huntress are much harder on console) that if you nerfed him we would only have the Doc and Myers left. So no, nerf something else instead, how about Nurse? :P
  • I mean that secret offerings would not be on the screen at all, non existant. What happens currently is people see the black face down offering and close the game on the offering screen to dodge without penalty as they know it's a mori of some sort. Some people just adjust their playstyle and be carefull, others dodge…
  • I'd settle for "secret" offerings which are "all variety of mori / start the trial seperated / with someone else / all together / as far away from the killer as possible" from not being displayed at all on the offering screen.
  • The new Feng Min set with a long ponytail, black hoodie and black pants, if that looks good in game then bye bye Claudette helllo there Feng!
  • 100% of the generator via many skill checks - Red "ultra rare" costing 7000 BP Consumes the toolbox on use. Will become: 25% of the generator via 2 skill checks - Purple "rare" costing 6000 BP Does NOT consume the toolbox on use. HEAVY nerf but you might see them more often as they will be purple, 1k BP less to buy and you…
  • I'll just say what I said in the last thread about it:
  • This is what I think too.
  • I loved how Stefan had the BALLS to stand up and justify all the PTB changes to all the whiners in chat and reinforce why they are needed and why they are going through next patch. It would of been a lot easier to give in to survivor pressure (like they did with Freddy) and revert or put off the changes. The fact that he…
  • Yep! exactly this ^ BBQ will NOT be seeing any nerfs and neither will aura reading perks as they are to stay, adapt or die!
  • I've been online gaming for years, my top 5 online games of all time: 1."Vanilla" World of Warcraft. 2.Quake III Arena. 3.The original Counter Strike. 4.Warcraft 3 the RTS and it's expansion The Frozen Throne. 5.Dead by Daylight. Would definitely put DBD in my top 5 even if it's at the bottom.
  • The something they are doing right is FINALLY bringing the games balance back into line by bringing some excellent and much needed changes to help killers. The changes so far along with the PTB might just make this a blanced game. The only things left to do once the PTB goes live would be to make Hex totems last longer…
  • Aye true, rank 20-16 will just be the "tutorial ranks" that everyone who simply plays the game will get out of and be at rank 15 which is where the killers that de-rank on purpose will play. TBH all it does is remove 1/4 of the ranks in reality.
  • The event ends on literally the very first second of the 10th, in other words, at 23:59pm on the 9th you have 1 minute left of the event because 1 minute later it's 00:00 the 10th (UTC). hours:minutes:seconds 23:59:59pm on the 9th 1 second later it's 00:00:00am on the 10th Should be easy to understand now.
  • Playing killer on the original Xbox was a slide show compared to playing it on my Xbox One X. No idea where you got this idea from, do any Xbox One X users that used to play on the original Xbox think they have more FPS "issues" on the X? For me it was a massive leap forwards and apart from certain killer & map combo's…
  • What rank are you? ;)
  • Are you on Xbox?
  • 1.Lobby dodging. 2.De-ranking. If one or both of these ever get removed, that's the day I uninstall DBD. I also check the profile of every survivor in the lobby looking at their DBD gamerscore (X1X).
  • It happened this way on Xbox too, first comes 2.0 which was sometime in the afternoon then later that night just after midnight came the DLC Curtain Call.
  • Patrolling the hooked survivor (camping) and going for the recently unhooked survivor who is injured (tunneling) are part of the game and valid killer strategy as are aura reading perks (wall hacks) too.
  • I mean that if the killer is using Insidious to stay near the hook and fool would-be rescuers, a system where the hook sacrifice progress stops if the killer is too close to the hook would make Insidious pretty much useless.
  • And what would be the point of Insidious, you know, a perk the devs put into the game.
  • Currently it's: 00:40 UTC July 5th, no 2x BP event yet.
  • All the official information can be found on this developer post on their official forum: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/7172/ps4-2-0-0-update- PS4 EU will have access to the DLCs on July 6th at midnight local time (between thursday and friday). PS4 NA will have access to the DLCs on July 9th at midnight…
  • Yes you will, there will be two and one of them starts tonight, read the official post by the devs on it.
  • I've noticed when playing killer that the framerate DRASTICALLY improves the more survivors die and are removed from the game. When 3 survivors are dead the frame rate is far better, I'd assume this is down to the CPU. Oh that's on the X again.
  • X, plays like normal for me and I mostly play as the Hillbilly. The Clown seems to run well too even when I'm spamming toxic bottles. Survivor has always been fine, the Doc suffers on some maps like Haddonfield and Red Forest etc but he did before 2.0. No complaints from me.
