Resource Thread - Links, info & useful media
Since many have been asking questions both about specific mechanics and general state of the game and updates news, here is a compilation of Planetside 2 resources from the web:

- NVidia Game Tweaking Guide: Extremely thorough and well-written. Although by NVidia, the tweaks discussed apply to all GPUs (except for PhysX of course). For maximising your FPS and viewing experience: http://www.geforce.co.uk/whats-new/g...-tweak-guide#1
- Planetside 2: http://www.planetside2.com
- Forums. Biohazard warning: occasionally extremely toxic, as Cortosis once said "it's like the comments secion in youtube". The Announcements subforum is where they post update notification and patch notes: https://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/index.php

"Quantacat's name is still recognised even if he watches on with detached eyes like Peter Molyneux over a cube in 3D space, staring at it with tears in his eyes, softly whispering... Someday they'll get it."
"It's frankly embarrassing. The mods on here are woeful."
"I wrinkled my nose at QC being a mod."
"At least he has some personality."

Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I can't seem to start a new thread.
Is there a resource for the upload and sharing of various hardware profiles (for gaming mice/keyboards etc)? I just got a new Corsair M90 and was wondering the best way to have the bindings.

May I suggest we add the in house equipment and certs guides to this?
