invisible water Graphics Glitch - Invisible Water

Recommended Posts

:classic_blink:Bug Report

Description

Upon buying and installing the game, I immediately noticed that I had to change it to LOW graphics settings to avoid the impervious lag, and it worked - mostly. I'm used to playing ARK on DirectX 10 - Low-End Graphics Settings, but I noticed that ATLAS doesn't have this as a launch option. When spawning into the world on Single Player, I noticed that there were creatures swimming in mid-air, :classic_blink: and that there wasn't any water (until I fell in) :classic_laugh: . I continued to wait for another 10 minutes to see if it would eventually spawn in. I switched to Medium Graphics Settings, to no avail. Finally I relaunched the game with Low Memory launch settings. The same thing happened, and unfortunately, until there's a fix - I cannot play this game. :classic_sad:

Did you find any solution?

As of right now, no. 😒 After re-installing windows and updating my graphics definitions to their latest and re-launching the game after a fresh install; no luck🙁 The Dev's still haven't implemented Low-End Graphics Direct-X 10 mode like they did with ARK.🛠️  I'm hoping they do, but a voice deep inside tells me they won't; at least, not for awhile.⏰

I've looked all over for a laptop PC that can match the minimum specs for this game. At this point, I'm about to just say **** it and buy an Xbox. I won't have access to mods for ATLAS or ARK, but at least I'll be able to play the damn game. Since posting this, ARK even stopped working for me as well after the recent patch. SO LAGGY IT'S UNBEARABLE. Takes FOREVER to load.  I'm willing to bet none of the devs have even taken a look at this, and according to their road map as of recent; optimizations are NOT on the menu, at least from what I've read. So Great. A wonderful game that people with normal PC's can't play. I've taken all the steps to update my drives, turn my laptop onto performance mode, and a bunch of other stuff to make these games run. It's frustrating and it's sad. I've spent 3 weeks trying to figure this out and it just turns out I need to buy a super computer, and that I do not have the finances for. I'd hate to switch to console, but the way the devs are putting it: I have no other option at this point. These games are amazing all I want to do is play the damn games I bought. Like, how could they not optimize this for lower performance mode like they did with ARK? Why?

Because people want better not worse. Apparently your laptop is unable to run any sort of physics whatsoever. You cant just buy a game that wont play on your laptop and then expect to get it dumbed down so you can play. Kinda like asking why you cant cook a pan pizza in the toaster oven you just bought.

See the thing is, it has run pretty good once before. Recent updates soiled it. My laptop is a decent $1,200 machine, but it's not a beast like it was 5 years ago. It used to play well on the Unreal Engine, but as of last year it's just - kapoof! Nope. And even though it runs DirectX12 perfectly, for some reason only wants to play ark in DirectX10 mode. I'm just asking for the OPTION, not for this to be a thing for people with beefier computers than mine.

I'm kinda just asking for a microwavable pizza at this point because I can't afford an oven.
