Make DNF Duel’s Character Models Look Better

While DNF Duel for the PC looks to be a good port, there are several things that have soured me with the game. One of them is that the character models are not as smooth as they should be. I suppose blurry is the best way to describe them. Thankfully, there is a fix for that, as I’ll explain. However, to correct this, you’ll have to edit a file. But not to worry, it’s not that hard. How to fix the DNF Duel character models • Before you can fix the low-res models, you’ll have to start the game

Use PlayStation Buttons in DNF Duel for PC – The Outerhaven

If you’re playing DNF Duel on PC, then you already know that the button prompts in the game are only showing for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S controllers.

Ubisoft Leaks Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Release Date

Dang it, Ubisoft, you just had one more day to announce the release date for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

F1 22 Review – As Always A Track Master
