      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Did the L.A. Noire Patch add DirectX 11? (Looking good!) *Update: Yep, added 2/15/2012

11 posts in this topic

I don't remember DirectX 11 being an option in L.A. Noire. I just now decided to start it up for the first time since January and it asked me to install a patch first.

After the patch installed I clicked on the pre-launch setup to make sure everything was set to the Max. I noticed there was a drop down menu and that I could now select DirectX 11. I would have definitely done it the first time I started it, so I'm wondering if they added it. It does seem like the game has more "pop/atmosphere/quality/lighting/shadows/etc".

Maybe I'm crazy, but here are some screens from a little bit ago.

Just found my answer. They did in fact add DirectX 11 only SIX days ago, LOL. 2/15/12

The facial animations alone would keep it from being a "Snore" for me. Glad I can appreciate it and love it for that, everything else is icing. Hoping for an L.A. Noire 2 after GTAV and RDR2.

I honestly think we will get the game on PC in the future. I believe the reason it's not been announced, and is taking so long, is the size of the game. I'm hoping they're doing what all of us would want and not "just porting it". The game is massive, the vista's are beautiful (even on a 360), and the draw distance is quite good.

Personally, I want a proper upgrade and I think that Rockstar may actually give us one on such a great game.

Of course it's possible we'll never see the game, but I'm keeping my hopes up that it has not been seen because it's getting a massive overhaul. That, or maybe we'll get RDR2...at the least.

How do you pronounce snore?

:lol:

Thought about that myself...just didn't ask.

Just to help him understand.

Noire is Prounounced;

Nwaa

or

Nwaar

Depending on where you are.

The above doesn't even come close to rhyming with "snore".
