What I was wondering after I googled the quest, is that screens of the weapon show it being used back on the island. I thought once you travel to the prison you can't return to the island, that's all I meant.

So I'm wondering if there's another place in the game that weapon can be found. I'm searching everything, all quests available etc this time around. Really enjoying this game.

How did you guys get all the stuff you had in first game the second time you play? I started a second game after finishing it once and still started off with nothing (same character).

Sorry had a brain fart and didn't follow you. Not sure if you can find it anywhere else in the game. Maybe they are using it on a second or third play through.

There's all kinds of tweaks for this game. Go to the Steam forums

http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...postcount=1838

or here

http://forum.orbsydia.org/forumdispl...-Released-Mods


I have to say that for me, this is one of the best games to come out this year. I almost passed this game up cause a zombie killing game didn't really appeal to me. Man I'm glad I got it. The visuals are a treat. Great atmosphere and detail and with all that's going on, the game runs smooth. I've played the game twice already and have had no crashes. This game is a keeper.

I've taken advantage of some of the visual tweaks (got rid of Bloom, fog, dust, and did desaturate) and the game looks even better (crisper).

There is also a tweak to adjust the mouse sensitivity without it affecting sensitivity in the game menu. In this game (and COJ The Cartel) if you adjusted the mouse sensitivity in game to low (like I do), the mouse movement in the game menu became so slow as to be practically unusable. The mouse tweak fixes that (although no fix for COJ The Cartel).

Just run through. After I got tired of the sewers I just ran right through, only had to kill an occasional infected that would catch up to me. Same with the city streets.

Default Re: Dead Island still alive!

Ok just had my first real go of this game after buying it late last night ... Ive used a mod tool to remove motion blur & Bloom, Enable overcast weather, Adjust the FOV and forced x16 AA/AF via nvidia inspector, Im using the analog mod too, Its a load of fun, Adds a different dimension to the game .. First opinion it looks really really nice, A lot better than i expected.

BUT

Is it just me ore does the mouse feel weird while playing ... Kind of clunky/jerky, Kind of laggy ... Ive also noticed that i have to adjust my dpi on my G500 when the actual game-play loads because it way to sensitive/fast, When going back into the menu screen though its really slow lol.

Don't really mind the menu slowness i can cope with that but is there a fix for the mouse feeling clunky/jerky during game-play? ... I cant enjoy the game ... Its puts me off.

When you guys are in co-op, does it track quests for everyone in game or only whoever hosted the game?

My brother says he gets a message saying his quests won't be tracked when he joins my game - I'll have him host next time and see if I get that or not.


Other than that - this is my new addiction. I can't seem to get enough of dismembering zombies
