Tell me about it. After blasting you all last night on TS with my new mike (sorry about that), I spent 30 minutes fiddling with settings to get it near where I thought it was right, then I loaded up an instance of dayz to find my FPS had gone to shit for some reason (less than 2 when i normally get 30-40).
Cue another 30 minutes of fiddling and then its nearly midnight and when i finally get it working, I think bugger it, I'll head into the nearest town to get some ammo. Then I find out the zeds are on roids and my 1911 is a peashooter.
