Hey everyone,

My name is Michael Tsarouhas, I am the lead game designer on Insurgency: Sandstorm. As we said in our previous post, we’re still hard at work optimizing the game and fixing bugs. But on this day, April 1st, we wanted to take a moment to show off some exciting new content we’ve been cooking up on the side.

Get ready for our brand new game mode…Frenzy

What is Frenzy?

Frenzy is a brand new cooperative mode for Insurgency: Sandstorm where players must fight against brutal enemy AI who are only armed with melee weapons. Instead of using worn out 40 year old AKMs, WWII era Mosins, and the same boring old high lethality weapons, enemies are armed only with Kukris and a menacing bloodlust for players. They’ll spread out, encircle, and charge to take you down. It’s just like your favorite zombie modes from other FPS games...

INI Edits to Fix Hitching/Stuttering WITHOUT Reducing Quality (Updated for v1.1.3)

  • 7
  • 0
These tweaks don't always fully eliminate the microstutters, but they pretty much get rid of the big hitches and make things smoother overall.

First things first: navigate to your Sandstorm INI files and DELETE all them, then relaunch Sandstorm and redo your audio and video settings in order to recreate the INI files fresh. You can then quit Sandstorm and navigate back to the folder to do the editing.

The INI files are located here in Windows (you should back them up now, in case you want to just drag them back and go back to your previous settings): "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Insurgency\Saved\Config\WindowsClient".


Relevant parts of the system used on this guide: i7-3770k @ 4.5GHz...
