    Well this was taken using the DX11 settings...

    Every graphics setting at full aside from 'bloom', which i always have at 0% because it pisses me off lol

    native resolution of 1920 x 1080... i have been tempted to see how ST would play in windowed stretched over 2 monitors, but don't fancy having my main character split down the middle lmao....

    How did you get it to DX11? Did i miss something in the graphic settings?

    Oh and, I look nothing like me in STO, and I don't have any more federation slots. I can fix a KDF officer that looks like me tomorrow, just for the fun it. In the meantime, this is my character:

    I just realized you can't tell from that pic, but she's a Trill.

    And here's my ship :D

    Gotta say though, I've never understood the whole thing of looking like yourself in a RPG though. Don't I play the game to pretend I'm not in my normal world? And why not have something nice to look at in the meantime, hence why I almost always play as a female character.

    Here he is with his fiance and XO Commander Kristin "Danger" Nelson:

    The option is under the troubleshooting section. You have to change the video card option--there should be a pull down with your card listed twice: one with dx9 and one with dx11 (beta).

    Okay, fixed it as an edit of one of my officers. This is about as close as I can get.

    /renderscale 2 or /renderscale 3

    I've tried both and /renderscale 3 nearly crashed the game completely.


    Here's my main toon Jonozia Lex, who bears more than a passing resemblance to me, with his wife Sara Parker on the bridge of the USS Argus.

    Appreciate the info. Does "/renderscale" effect normal play or just when you punch Print Scn?

    Btw, whatever happened to the restrictions against fraternization in the military? I see you all guys having relationships with your crewmembers. I transferred my first officer when she got a little too friendly. ;-) Have to maintain crew discipline and morale. Hey, crew morale is a variable that would be cool to have in the game.

    It effects the normal play too, so I tend to switch it on to do a screen grab and then switch it off again.

    BTW you can also do decimals, so /renderscale 2.5 is valid (or /renderscale .5 if you need to reduce the quality because the game is running slow)

    Lex and Parker's relationship predates his command of the Argus by several years, going all the way back to the Academy. They married while serving on the USS London and initially they weren't serving together on the Argus.

    I have no such excuse. She was a direct suborninate and hot.

    Also: Romulan Ale is a powerful beverage. :lol:

    I build a new toon specifically for this...

    I forgot my real life scar... have to correct that eventually.

    and I may tweak it down the line if I can make it match me even better. so far i jast had a couple pics to work from, mirror doesn't work.
