    I killed 100% of guards on level one and my save file got the high chaos label

    I killed 0% of anything on level 2 and 3 and my graph was waaaaaay up high in the top right corner and my game still says high chaos

    I assume it will eventually go back down but it seems like it takes a lot of no chaos to make up for just one level of high chaos

    I'm sure that eventually someone will find the exact number of satisfying murders you can perform while staying in low chaos.
    (This someone might end up being me, I'm not sure yet)

    If you end up doing that science you should also check to see how much it weighs taking the high chaos choice vs the low one

    If I do all murders but then pick the low chaos chapter decision is that enough to balance the scales (or zero murders but also the high chaos choice)

    Ugh, I think I'm going to hold off playing this any more until a patch hits.

    My frame rates and mouse speeds are still fluctuating so dramatically that doing any sort of remotely fancy movement in this game is a nightmare.

    Yeah I'm in the same boat. The performance is shocking, and the input problems are just so mildly frustrating and never ending that it ends up being the worst part.

    I have a podcast about Digimon called the Digital Moncast, on Audio Entropy.
  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    I've noticed some real performance problems when I move quick but for the most part I'm playing so incredibly slowly that it thankfully hasn't been a problem

    Except one time when I wasn't careful and some NPC's surprised me and I wasn't able to actually fight or escape because suddenly the mouse wasn't moving properly

    Did you try this list of fixes?


    Been working for a lot of people.

    This helped with overall performance a lot!

    But it did nothing to help the input lag problem.

    Which is the one problem I can't put up with. :/

    Ah dang that sucks : /

    Even setting the mouse smoothing to 0 in the file?

    That's one issue I didn't have mine was just chugging.

    Yea unfortunately after getting everything running great I ended up getting stuck at a hard crash spot right at the end so I had to watch the ending on youtube.

    That is not a setting anywhere to be found in that file.

    I had to add that in, and it had no noticeable effect at all.

    so has anyone found a way to restart levels if you haven't manually saved at the beginning of each level?

    edit: looking on other sources, apparently there isn't, which sucks. The autosaves happen so frequently, and the quicksaves get overridden so easily

    I had a save just right after I wanted to do a thing, that's apparently irreversible

    also makes the non-lethal route really annoying

    oh well

    guess I'll just have to do another playthrough at some point

    puts a bit of a damper on my enthusiasm

    Yeah and there's no way to select unlocked missions either which the first game had. Seems like a step back.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    You could just spend the runes to get the position swap upgrade...

    fake edit unless it has a maximum effective distance or something

    faker edit though I bet doing it that way would let you benefit from any bone charms that activate bonuses for kills or drop kills specifically

    got to clockwork mansion last night, it was super neat

    also I am obsessive about collecting runes but really bad at actually spending them so I still only have four powers and no passives

    e: decoy looks extremely good though, I'm going to get that next time I play

    I've got pull, dark vision and domino maxed, sitting on 10 runes and don't really feel the need to buy anything else right now. On mission 8.

    Upgrading agility so you've got a better jump is extremely worth it.

    Yeah I feel like I should be spending runes more than I am but for the way I'm playing I haven't felt like I needed much more than blink and dark vision

    The rune crafting passive goes a long way. So far I've stacked effects that give +speed for: crouching; weapons sheathed; and carrying a body.

    Net effect means sneaking around with a body moves as fast as sprinting. Ultimate kidnapper.

    By the end the most useful things I found were full upgraded blink and the first level of agility for super jump.

    And maxed out slow time is the most unholy broken monstrosity of a skill in the game.

    yeah it was pretty silly in the first game as well

    I also love in the intro sequence when you see what it's like for corvo to use it as a bystander

    I can still play as Time Stop - Chain Blink Assassin Corvo? Excellent! I aim to do a Corvo run where I kill everything so I can explore and plan routes in peace, then will do a more benign run with Emily later. Then probably a lethality run with her, too.

    seems like it would be doable if you were going high chaos

    Beat the game, ghost, clean hands, best ending with Emily.
    Enjoyable, but no surprises.

    The payoff with Billie Lurk was decent because I hadn't thought about her being culpable for the Empresses' assassination. But the whole thing where she probably did dirt for Delilah as Grim Alex goes nowhere. But her Search for Daud pretty much has to be the expansion content.

    Delilah gets trapped in her own painting by sabotaging her ceremony, which in a lot of ways is just a repeat of the end of The Brigmore Witches.

    And I just read on the Dishonored wiki that if you knock out Past-Stilton Billie gets her eye and arm back, which fuck I think I have a save back there so maybe I'll go back and play that half of the game from there again.

    however it turns out that there were even more really cool things that I missed after I passed one poorly signposted choice that I couldn't go back to because autosaves and quicksaves had written over each other.


    gosh these are some beautiful and dense worlds, tho

    I kinda want to jump back in to play it again, but when I did that I remembered that the first level or so is a very slow build without any of the fun nonlethal tools

    Depends how you want to do it. No Powers is for if you really want a challenge, and it's up to you how much you stack on that. Ghost No Kills is one extreme, High Chaos is the other.
    I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't already know the levels, though.
    I'm glad they put it in as an option anyway. A challenge if you want it, and easy to ignore if you don't.

    I would like a New Game + option that just lets you start with everything you finished with, but I think Arkane have made noises like maybe they'll be adding that and chapter selection in later updates? It's a faint hope, but I'll cling to it.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.
