[Linux] Dying Light changes nice level to 19 (lowest) for the entire user.
This one is an astoundingly absurd issue.

Starting Dying Light renices every single last process from the user that is starting it to 19 (including itself), the lowest possible niceness level and every new process started by that user will also have niceness level 19.

For the uninformed, niceness describes the priority of an individual process with a nice level of 19 (or 20) being the lowest and -20 being highest priority. 0 is the default for my user.

Oh wow. Talk about terrible coding :/

Can confirm it also puts all my apps including itself on 19.

I can also confirm this.

Happens to me as well.

Well that's not nice. :(

Sinedio, we really need to be patient with developers working towards giving us releases. It's a system they don't fully understand and they should get props for working towards it. comments like that are counter productive and do your OS no good in moving forward. I really wish comments like that would just go away. OpenSSL was a cluster f*** of code and we used it for years. Same holds true with many applications you probably use from day to day. Give the devs a break, and if you feel you can do better, show us a link to your project so we can check it out.....

Sorry but that is not an excuse.

And this response got old. It's a response that people use when they have nothing else that they can use.

You went a bit overboard there don't you think? I don't see what's counter-productive. He shared his experience, and expressed his opinion that it's pretty absurd, which I agree with.

He didn't insult the game, the devs or said he was better. He just said that this specific issue was happening and gave his opinion on it.

"Talk about terrible coding :/"

If that isn't an insult I'm not sure what is....

This is an issue report not a "being right on the Internet" contest. Please keep your discussion about code quality and developer competence somewhere else.

It's a response because someone that most likely knows nothing about coding is telling someone they are terrible at coding. Please show me that you know a tiny bit about coding at all then I may find your opinion more than BS.... Until then, pffft....

The whole "do better if you think you can" is tiring, since the devs job is to be better than the consumers. Something like this deserves a bit of ridicule in my opinion.

I'm a programmer for a living, not games, but I have an idea of the problems faced. Still, it's not my job to fix it, it's the developers.

Lol, what is this thread. xD

1. There is no such thing as a nice level of 20, 19 is the max.

2. 19 means the process is the MOST nice, meaning it allows ALL OTHER processes to go first and function, meaning things like desktop processes so you can ALT-TAB to your desktop.

So, what the hell is wrong with that?? It's GOOD that it is 19 niceness, it is the nicest process that it possibly can be! xD

Try reading and learning about things before posting on them and going crazy.

man nice
info coreutils 'nice invocation'

Girls, stop bickering, and leave it as a bug report.
Cranky Penguin Jan 27, 2015 @ 7:06am 
It's not good that it's making ALL the user processes 19. This is not just about the game process itself if you read the initial comment.
