Tips for playing SWRP

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I used to play on the server for a brief time a few months ago and I've been considering coming back to gmod and I just wanted to ask a few questions. (I hope this is the right forum)

 

1. What's a good starting regiment?

 

2. Any tips on improving fps? I have bad performance on servers like this.

 

3. How many hours per week do I need to play to be considered active?

 

4. How do I properly role-play? I came from a server that was very chill and I went from Sergeant to Captain within about a month of joining a dead regiment and thus I am not the best at properly role-playing.

 

5. It's taking me a long time to load onto the server. Are there any fixes to this?
 

To close off I would like to apologise for the recent incidents involving me and a few of my school friends, I never intended to do harm to the community even if my friends did. I would greatly appreciate if you guys would forgive me and answer these questions.

 

Thanks, I hope I'll join the server soon.

 

EDIT: Fixed broken paragraph.

1. No regiment is better than another, Chose depending on your play style.
2. Lower settings, Use !fps Command or Open a support ticket.
3. At least 2 hours every 3 days. I would recommend hopping on for an hour a day.
4. Experience is the best teacher. If you join an RP heavy regiment like Navy or Engineers you will learn fast.
5. Not sure about this one, Open a support ticket??

1. What's a good starting regiment?

I would tend to suggest a military based one. ISB, Navy and Gov require you to have a deeper understanding of the rules and intricacies of roleplay but within military it's up to you. Guarding regiments are more for chill players that just like to chat. Attack regiments for people that prefer the event gameplay and the combat elements and recon regiments for people who enjoy the communication element as well as having a more specialised role off-ship.

2. Any tips on improving fps? I have bad performance on servers like this.

Honestly, just go into settings and turn off/ turn everything to low. Graphics aren't exactly important to gameplay but fps is. Sometimes some maps are laggy for everyone so don't stress!

3. How many hours per week do I need to play to be considered active?

Depending on the regiment, you need to be hopping on at least once every 3 days. Ideally 1-2 hours everyday.

4. How do I properly role-play? I came from a server that was very chill and I went from Sergeant to Captain within about a month of joining a dead regiment and thus I am not the best at properly role-playing.

Don't do anything your character wouldn't do. Don't mention things in the real world like I'm lagging or is my mic to loud? It's up to you how serious you take the roleplay as different regiments vary. Although in saying that, don't FAILRP. Any serious breaches in roleplay can result in a warn but that's only for the extremes so just don't do anything troll. Ask lots of questions.

5. It's taking me a long time to load onto the server. Are there any fixes to this?

Try uninstalling and re-downloading your content. Other than that, it's probably a PC/ Internet related issue but we have a support team within this community that is really good at helping those kind of things, so get in contact with them!

My tips on playing Star Wars RP.

1. A good starting Regiment depends on what you want to do. No Regiment isn't a starting Regiment, you can do whatever you want, every Regiment can be a starter Regiment for you, because I am sure everyone in the community will gladly teach you the ropes if you're eager to learn.

Want to guard? Join 996th, Chimaera Squad, Deathtroopers or 224th.
Want to be in the frontline? Join 212th, Shore, Jump Troopers or Widow Squad (A Sub-Regiment of ST's)
Want to hunt Jedi? Join any 501st Regiment (Vader's Fist, Imperial Commando's, Cinder Squad) or Inquisitor Troopers.
Want to gather intelligence? Join SCAR, Rancor Battalion or Shadow Troopers.
Want to be Roleplay Intensive? Join ISB, Navy, Engineering, Governmeny, Medics or Pilots (who also pilot shit.)

Nothing is out of your grasp, trust me.

2.  The FPS problem can be fixed using the command !fps, as well as, running GMod at high performance (may lower other programs response times), as well as turning down your settings as far as they can go, it goes a long way with low settings on GMod servers, can help you out drastically.

3.  So, activity is based on every Regiment, but an hour a day goes a long way honestly. Just showing you're making the effort to be there.

4. Do your best to think as an Imperial, do as they would do, don't join the Rebels, get me? Watching and learning also helps.

5. Refer to 2.

Performance Tips is where I shine!

As a resident potato PC member, there is a couple things ill always do to make Gmod run a lot smoother.

First in console ill type: gmod_mcore_test 1 This enables multi core usage on Gmod, giving you more fps, and if not will still make it much smoother, so not as many massive fps lag spikes.

 

Also no idea if it actually works but it feels like it does, ill do !fps when I join, and ill do it on off maps as well time to time and it seems to work, maybe placebo is at work idk.

 

 

And another is a bit more complicated so ill have pictures.

First,  go into Task Manager

Then you need to click more details arrow,

Then you need to find gmod on that list, i dont have it open so im gonna use Nvidia as an example, you then right click it and press go to details

Now you will have that process highlighted in the new tab

If it doesnt highlight or there is alot, you can tell by what used the most resources.

 

Then you need to right click again, and click set priority - then high. (NEVER DO REALTIME) You will then get a prompt saying are you sure, this could cause system instability - but that can only happen if you do real time, hence never use it.

And boom! Gmod should be running alot better now!
