Watch Dogs 2


       

Watch Dogs 2  is an open world action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Most of you might be knowing it is a sequel to the 2014 game with the same title. It was released on 15th of November worldwide for PlayStation4 , Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.



Set within a fictionalised version of the San Francisco Bay Area, the game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. Players control Marcus Holloway, a hacker who works with the hacking group 'DedSec' to take down the city's advanced surveillance system. There are multiple ways to complete missions, and each successful assignment increases the follower count of DedSec. Cooperative allows for competitive one-on-one combat and connecting with other players in order to neutralise a player who is actively causing havoc.

Ubi also announced a number of "special enhancements" coming to the PC edition of the game, which is why it's taking the extra time to nail things down:
General

  • 4K support
  • Stuttering/lag framerate optimisation – We employed a fix that makes all controls much more responsive and less framerate-related. We’ve optimised resource creation, GPU VRAM upload and required VRAM for the game.
  • No FPS cap
  • Full SLI/Crossfire support at launch
  • Multiple save file support – This feature allows players to have up to three autosave slots for three separate playthroughs.
  • Multi-monitor support with borderless mode and advanced settings that allow for customised placement of menu and HUD.
  • Multiple windowed mode options – Windowed mode with flexible/resizable windows, multi-monitor borderless.
Improved Graphic Features
  • Screen Space Reflections
  • Headlight Shadows – Support for additional shadows from car headlights
  • Extra Details Options – Increases the level of detail for all objects in the game, and adds more details to objects in the distance.
Improved Graphics Options

  • FOV sliders
  • Pixel Density sliders
  • Sharpness sliders
  • Ultra Textures pack available at launch
  • Ambient Occlusion options: Ubisoft proprietary ambient occlusion techniques (SSBC and HMSSAO), HMSSAO
  • Anti-aliasing options: TXAA, MSAA, Post Processing Anti-Aliasing options (SMAA and FXAA)
Improved Keyboard/Mouse controls

  • Full adaptation with mouse and keyboard
  • We’re using raw mouse input to reduce latency and use the Windows hardware cursor throughout the game without any additional signal filtering to smooth or accelerate mouse movement by default
  • Advanced keyboard support – Keyboard hotkeys for every menu and app for faster access. Additionally, all hotkeys can be remapped.
  • Mouse-centric UI – Any UI screen, menus or smartphone app supports full mouse interaction, so the player can finish any UI task with the mouse only. Everything is clickable and has appropriate button states.
  • Toggle/Hold modes for different controls (aim, sprint, walk, inventory, etc.)



Driving
Driving has been adapted to suit the keyboard controls, with adjustable steering sensitivity. Same goes for driving camera sensitivity and auto-centering camera behaviour
Gamepad support

  • On-the-fly switching between mouse and keyboard to gamepad, without any additional options, UI will just switch to gamepad mode
  • Supported gamepads: Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, third-party XInput gamepads (everything Xbox-based), PlayStation 4 Controller. We do not officially support Direct Input gamepads, Steam controllers or game wheels.
  • To be fair, that's a lot of extra jazz, and if the extra couple of weeks means Watch Dogs 2 comes out smooth and stable on a wide range of hardware—including the really high-end stuff—then it will be time well spent. Whether it can prove itself to be more than another stylish hacktivist yarn that refuses to follow through on its premise" remains to be seen, but one thing at a time.


That's all for watchdogs 2. The gameplay is awesome and overall seems to be a pretty interesting game. Go for it 👍

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein.

→These rays are also known as canal rays.

→This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton.


Apparatus Used A discharge tube was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve).The tube was filled with an inert gas.A perforated or porous cathode was used.
A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode.There was a vacuum pump in the tube.High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system.It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure) no change was seen in the tube. When thepressurewas decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Android Versions Named After Sweet

Have you ever thought why are Android versions always named after sweet names ??

Everytime a new Android version is launched its name is kept after a sweet name. Many people have researched about this topic and many have asked Google also. Have you ever tried to find out the core reason behind this? If not then you would find the answer here .

First of all let us first see what Google says about this :

In 2008 i.e. the year when Android was launched a reporter asked the reason for the same. At that time Google said

“It’s kind of like an internal team thing, and we prefer to be a little bit — how should I say — a bit inscrutable in the matter, I’ll say,” said Randall Sarafa, a Google spokesman. “The obvious thing is that, yeah, the Android platform releases, they go by dessert names and by alphabetical order for the most part."



Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment
Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first:

Things You Must KnowSome basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u.Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons.Alpha particles have an atomic mass of 4u.Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets.



Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles.He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results in illumination. This helped to determine the path …

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes

These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass.They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same.But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different.As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons.Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Pokemon Go 0.33.0

SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONS

SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONSSets are a fundamental part of mathematics and it’s knowledge is very important in present. It defines the concepts of relation and functions. These functions are also very essential for present day maths. SETSSets are denoted by capital letters. They are similar to matrices whose elements are denoted by small letters. But in sets an element comes only at once. Sets are matrices which give a sense of belonging. This sense of belongingness is represented by ∈ .We can write anything in a set like rivers of India, Wonders of the World .etc.  For an example let there be a set of positive single digit. Let the set be denoted as A Therefore, 8 ∈ A  Also we can write, 17 ∈ A Set can be represented by two types  ROSTERIn roster form we write elements in curly brackets and separate them with comma.  If there be set of positive integers less than 10. Therefore the set will be {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}  SET- BUILDER FORMIn set-builder form we take a variable x and then gives its…

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897.This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen'This experiment helped to discover electron.According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles.He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons
