How to: Guide on enabling SLI Updated 02/06/2016

This section is for discussing technical questions relating to the Beta version of Survarium, including game-bugs.

13.12.2015, 16:16

Required: Nvidia Inspector & 2 or more NVIDIA gpus.
(optional) Either 7-zip or WinRAR can be used to extract nvidia inspector.
[Nvidia Inspector] http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/nvi ... nload.html
[7-Zip] http://www.7-zip.org/
[WinRAR] http://www.rarlab.com/
Driver: 361.75

There are 2 methods of getting SLI to work below, AFR [Alternate Frame Rendering] and SFR [Split Frame Rendering] in the section below it.

Before creating a user defined Survarium Profile the GPU clock speeds must be stabilized.
To do this right click on Windows Desktop and open NVIDIA Control Panel. Contained within the "3D Settings" drop-tab open the "Adjust image settings with preview" toggle the selection titled "Use the advanced 3D image settings" and click apply. Open "Manage 3D setting" under the default tab "Global Settings" scroll to "Power management mode" set to "Prefer Maximum Performance" and click apply. Then Reset the computer to apply changes to the system hardware.
[Method 2: Creating a user defined Survarium Profile using Nvidia Inspector] Open driver settings key *icon resembles a wrench and screwdriver, under "Common" find "Power management mode" to "Prefer maximum performance" to stabilize the GPU clock. Then Reset the computer to apply changes to the system hardware.

*Toggle "Fullscreen" in Survarium game options before beginning testing. This condition must be met to provide results in consistancy with the statistics contained within this SLI guide.
Test parameters: log in screen; 100% resolution scaling; "minimal" graphics; resolution at 2880x1620; fullscreen mode.

[Creating a user defined Survarium Profile]
Once Nvidia Inspector has been extracted open the driver settings key *icon resembles a wrench and screwdriver. Either add Survarium as a program via Nvidia Inspector or Nvidia control pannel.
*How to add Profiles:
[1] Nvidia Inspector: click "create new profile" name it, next "add application to current profile" found at Survarium\game\binaries\x86\survarium.exe
[2] Nvidia Control Pannel: Manage 3D setting- Program setting's click add, add Survarium and hit apply.*now Survarium will be found in Nvidia inspector under the file in which it is contained. Using this method, search for Survarium using the letter of the Data Drive Survarium is located on. D:\C:\survarium.exe

[First method of applying SLI: AFR [Alternate Frame Rendering]]
35 to 56 fps (62% increase in performance)
One of the four working sli compatability bits must be placed in SLI compatability bits [DX1x] under the "Compatability" section of Nvidia Inspector:
CONDITIONS THAT MUST BE MET- to reduce stuttering
[1] Resolution Scale MUST be set to 100% (set to the resolution that gives you best performance.){method 2 of SLI rendering(SFR) does not have this problem}
[1a.] NVIDIA Driver: 361.75 does NOT need to meet condition [1] so it is highly recommended to update to this driver version. A guide on how to correctly install new drivers will be near the bottom of the Guide otherwise you may have to meet condition [1] above.
[2] Keep the system frame rate above 60 to reduce stutter. {method 2 of SLI rendering(SFR) does not have this problem}
[3] Fullscreen
Place one of these compatability flags in the SettingValue section "SLI compatability bits [DX1x]" located within the "Compatability" tab of Nvidia Inspector.
[1] 0x000020F5 (Anno 1404, Lords of the Fallen, Just Cause 2, Warframe, ArcheAge)
[2] 0x000820F5 (World Of Warcraft)
[3] 0x080020F5 (Dark Souls II, Alone in the Dark: Illumination, The Witcher 3, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil)
[4] 0x0C0020F5 (Victor Vran)
Unlike SFR which is below this section, do NOT need to edit the section "SLI" of nvidia inspector.

Known Issues:
[1] Longer Map loading times
[2] Stutter may be experienced below 60 fps

[2nd method of applying SLI]
SFR [Split Frame Rendering] - Performance increase of (20%), maintaining a smooth frame time. 35 to 42 fps.
Scroll to the section "SLI", in this section edit 6 values which will be named and ordered below.
[1] Number of GPUs to use on SLI rendering mode: Select the number of gpus in PC.
example:if there are 2 GPUs in your PC then select SLI_GPU_COUNT_TWO.
[2] NVIDIA predefined number of GPUs to use on SLI rendering mode on DirectX 10: Select the number of gpus in PC.
[3] NVIDIA predefined number of GPUs to use on SLI rendering mode: Select the number of gpus in PC.
[4] NVIDIA predefined SLI mode on DirectX 10: select the option below SLI_PREDEFINED_MODE_DX10_FORCE_SFR
[5] NVIDIA predefined SLI mode: SLI_PREDEFINED_MODE_FORCE_SFR
[6] SLI rendering mode: SLI_RENDERING_MODE_FORCE_SFR
*MAY reduce stuttering in SFR- 0x000020F5 can be placed in the compatability tab under DX 1x

Test parameters: log in screen; 100% resolution scaling; "minimal" graphics; resolution at 2880x1620; fullscreen mode.
Known Issues[SFR]:
[1] When editing graphics config in game [resolution, fullscreeen toggle, graphical settings] the bottom half of the screen space may go black. To FIX this simply alt+tab out and back into Survarium.
[2] The transparent black box that is meant to give player heath and status contrast is misaligned.
[3] Longer Map loading times
*None of these issues are Game-breaking or are Outstanding.

System tweaks not related to SLI:

Core Parking and System Power State:
Disabling Core Parking, Setting Windows Performance Mode, Increase Processor Responsiveness. Useful Utility named Park Control created by Bitsum. https://bitsum.com/parkcontrol/

Ball - the heart of the[url=http://www.zjautoparts.net/]Motorcycle Carburetor[/url]r . Leading manufacturers attach great importance to the quality of the surface of ball valves. Brass Balls are diamond grinding, they applied anticorrosion coating of nickel or chromium. As a result, the ball gets a perfect mirror surface. Symptom of products of low quality - a dim, muddy or rough surface of the ball.

With the advent of the market brass ball valves, they immediately appreciated was evaluated, and the demand for these products increases, as well as their scope. Now such products can be found in any economic stall. However, despite their apparent similarity, not all ball valves are really reliable and durable. Along with high-quality Italian taps, more and more pushed over in the trade cheap Polish, Chinese and Turkish valves, whose quality is far from perfect? In the struggle for the vast US market, some sellers have begun to distribute cheap "consumer goods" for branded products, quite simply to sell a fake, so I'd like to give some practical advice to buyers' brass ball valves. As a rule, forgery in performance is much inferior to the original products. Their use in water and heating systems can lead to accidents and big material losses. Counterfeits can cause serious damage and human health.

Wright Valves BVT034D recognized world leader in designing and manufacturing valves water Italy is known for such major firms as Matca-Norca, Wright Valves, Bugatti, Giacomini, RBM, Rastelli, Tiemme etc. Italian province of Brescia consists of a huge industrial zone, where the hangars is fittings under the brand name companies from Germany, Britain, USA, UAE and dozens of other countries. In practice, up to 70% of all ball valves entering the world market, made in Italy, where the business is engaged in more than 2000 companies. Stiff competition forces the firms to constantly improve its products and production technology. At the heart of high performance ball valves of the best world producers is the perfection of their design, precise adherence to the requirements of production technology and strict control of chemical composition of materials.

It is useful to say how counterfeit [url=http://www.zjautoparts.net/]Motorcycle Carburetor Float[/url] masquerading as the original. One of the techniques - misspelling the names of famous companies, such as, Bogati instead of Matca-Norca. Formally, this is not fake, because the original brand is not used. There are cases of writing only the names of countries, for example, USA, instead of adopting a made in Italy. The distortion of the famous logo, placing it, for example, not a diamond, but a square or a circle, also serves to confuse the buyer. Evidence of fraud may be the absence of any of the markings required for specific manufacturers. The sale of gas valves, and found such a primitive form of deception, as replacement faucet handles on native yellow - gas (gas Motorcycle Carburetor Float are more expensive). Price savings may be too high, so choose the ball valves are safer from the range of recognized brands.
