How to show your FPS in Valorant

Seeing how many FPS your game runs at can be very useful for a quick paced game like Valorant. Luckily for is it's very easy to find out how many FPS you have while playing, and it can be done easily from within the game itself. 

To see how many FPS you have in Valorant, head to the main menu and click on Settings in the top-left corner. Click on the "Video" tab, then the "Client" tab and select how you want the FPS to be displayed from the "Client FPS" option (at the very top)

This allows you to play the game and see exactly how smoothly the game runs. If you ever want to turn it off again, simply head back to the same menu and turn it off from there. 

How to respawn the Ender Dragon (Minecraft)

The Ender Dragon is the final boss of Minecraft, and can be a challenging fight. Once you beat it, you complete the game, so what do you do if you want to fight the Ender Dragon again? 

Luckily for us, it's pretty easy to respawn the Ender Dragon. You will need 4 x End Crystals to spawn him. These can be found on top of the obsidian pillars in The End, or crafted by combining the following:
- 7 x Glass
- 1 x Eye of Ender.
- 1 x Ghost Tear. 

When you have four End Crystals, go to The Nether and locate the Final Portal. Place the 4 End Crystals on each side of the Final Portal, and upon placing the 4th End Crystal, the Ender Dragon will repsawn. There's a little bit of a wait while he respawns, but you get to see a cool animation while waiting. 

And that's all you need to do in order to respawn the Ender Dragon. Good luck with fighting him again! 

How to download Veloren for free

Veloren is a voxel based MMO game where you can explore the automatically generated environment, fight enemies and group up with other players. It is currently still in development, but it's possible to play at the current point. 

The game itself is completely free, and you can download it from the official Veloren website located at https://veloren.net/. Just hit the Download button there, and it will take you to the download page. Choose if you want the most recent stable edition, or prefer the nightly build. The latter option is sort of like a beta test with a lot of bugs and things like that, but will also have more features that are being polished before being released to the stable release of the game.
 

How to dumpster dive (The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle)

The new Eco Lifestyle expansion pack in The Sims 4 is all about being environmentally friendly, and one way to be this is by going on dumpster diving. You can let your sim search for food and other items in the dumpsters, and save both money and the environment at the same time. 

So, how do you go about if you want to go dumpster diving? To go on dumpster diving in The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle, simply find any big dumpster in a city or a neighborhood and left click on it. This opens up a wheel of choices, including an option to go dumpster diving in it

And that's pretty much all there is to dumpster dive in The Sims 4. When you use this to search for food, items or even furniture, you can get lucky and score a free item, but you won't always find one. 

Note that you do need to have the Eco Lifestyle expansion pack installed to be able to dumpster dive in The Sims 4. Without it, the garbidge bins cannot be interacted with in the same way.

How to get Perfect Asgardian Steel (God of War)

You will need to find Perfect Asgardian Steel if you want to craft some of the best Gear in God of War, but these resources are difficult to come by. So where do we even get Perfect Asgardian Steel?

The answer is that Perfect Asgardian Steel can drop from any Valkyrie enemy in the game. You get them randomly by killing them, but expect to kill a lot off them before you get one. You do however get an increased chance as you kill more, since there is a limited number of Valkyries that you can kill, and the game will give you all the Perfect Asgardian Steel in the game when you have killed all the Valkyries.

The best method to farming them is to just keep killing all the Valkyries you come across in the game, and you will likely get enough Perfect Asgardian Steel soon enough.

Should you sell Artefacts? (God of War)

When you are playing God of War, you will soon find a lot of different Artefacts all around Midgard and the other realms. If you collect an entire set, you will get a lot of XP, but you can also choose to sell these Artefacts at any point. But should you sell the Artefacts you find?

The answer is that you should always sell all the Artefacts you find at the first chance. Most of them can be sold for a nice sum of money, and they have absolutely no use to the player after you have picked them up from the ground. So sell them for a decent amount of Hacksilver when you have the chance to, and use that money on something more important than Artefacts.

You can sell your Artefacts before you complete the entire set, since the collection tab will register how many Artefacts you find, not how many you keep. So you do not need to find the entire set before you sell the Artefacts you find.

How to launch Red Dead Redemption 2 without the Rockstar Launcher

A lot of players have been extremely frustrated with the lackluster Rockstar Launcher that is needed to play Red Dead Redemption 2, but there's a very easy fix that will allow you to play the game without using the launcher at all.

Originally published on http://powerupguides.com/

All you need to do is to rename the "rdr2.exe" file to "gtav.exe", and the game will launch fine without the use of the launcher. This is probably not intended to work, but it really does, so change the file name and you won't have to bother with the subpar Rockstar Launcher anymore, and can just enjoy playing Red Dead Redemption 2 without all the issues from the launcher.

How to fix the "there has been an error communicating with franchise server" error in Planet Zoo

Some players who tries to start at new save in Franchise Mode in Planet Zoo get the "there has been an error communicating with franchise server" error. The bug part about this error is that these users are actually connected to the internet, so there is something else that is causing this problem. This prevents them from being able to actually play the game, which is very frustrating, but luckily for us there is a very easy fix for this error.

All you need to do to fix the error is to give your company another name. The bug comes as a result of the company name you are trying being the same as a name you used for a beta save, so the game bugs out a bit. So just try another name, and you will most likely be able to create a new Franchise Mode save in Planet Zoo without any more problems or errors.

How to get Sugary Soul Shards (World of Warcraft)

Sugary Soul Shards are a consumable item that gives the entire world a dark tint, while also turning the sky purple. It gives a very ethereal look, and each Sugary Soul Shard buffs the player for 5 minutes.

You can likely only get the Sugary Soul Shards during the 15 Year Anniversary for World of Warcraft, and right now we do not know if they will return in the coming anniversaries.

Anyway, you can get the Sugary Soul Shards by purchasing them from a vendor called Waiter. He is found in Caverns of Time, just next to Chromie and the Chronocrystals there. He will only be there for the 15 year Anniversary, and will disappear when this event is over. They cost 5g per stack of 5, so effectively 1g each.

Them item does not seem to be limited to the event, meaning that you can likely stack up on them if you want to, and use them after the event is over. You just won't be able to buy any new ones.

How to walk around in the park as if you were a guest (Planet Zoo)

Have you ever wanted to walk around in your zoological park just like if you were a guest in it in Planet Zoo? While this is not something that is readily available in the game, it's actually possible to do this by using a "cheat code". Cheat codes in Planet Zoo works by having you rename a staff member, and their name is the cheat you want to use.

So if you want to just lock down the camera and walk around in the park as a guest, rename any staff member to "tegidcam", save their name change, and you are ready to go! Just change their name back again to something else when you are done with this new perspective of your zoo.

Will Planet Zoo be released for Mac?

Mac players are wondering if they will ever be able to build a zoo in Planet Zoo just like Windows players are, but right now there is no official word on the matter.

Despite the developer not having said anything, it seems very unlikely that they will ever release a Mac version of the game. The reason for this is that they have removed all Mac support from their previous titles just a little while ago, so it seems likely that they have chosen to focus completely on making the game for Windows.

This means that a Mac version of Planet Zoo is possible, but extremely unlikely.

Bugfix for when Planet Zoo freezes right after launching

Some players experience a bug where the entire game freezes just after they launch the game, essentially preventing them from even playing at all. This is obviously super annoying when you are excited to play Planet Zoo, but luckily there's a pretty simple fix for the problem.

The solution to the bug where the game freezes upon launching is to set compatibility mode to Windows 7. This emulates the game to launch in Windows 7 instead of the current OS you are using, which will usually make the bug go away.

What the different types of staff are for in Planet Zoo

There are a total of 4 different type of staff that you can employ in Planet Zoo, and they are all essential to have if you want to run a successful zoo. In this post we are going to be taking a closer look at what each of the different type of staff actually does in your park.

The Caretakers are the type of staff that are involved in cleaning the park and making sure that there is no litter around, that the toilets are clean and stuff like that. In addition they can help transporting animals between facilities and habitats.

The Zookeepers are working directly with the animals by feeding them, refilling their water containers and cleaning their living areas. If you forget to hire any zookeepers, your animals will get very unhappy very quickly when they have no one to feed them.

The Mechanics are responsible for all the mechanical stuff in your park, which is a lot more than it might look like. These guys are responsible for making sure that your Water Facilities and Power Facilities are running smoothly, and these will break down if you don't have Mechanics to check up on them somewhat frequently. If they do break down, you will also need Mechanics to fix them again.

The last type of staff are the Veterinarians. These work on treating illnesses and injuries that animals get, help capture escaped animals, and can research animals that are in the zoo to improve the food and supplements that you give them, or improve the breeding successes of your animals.

All the four different types of staff are important in their own way, and it is close to impossible to run a zoo without having all four types present in your park.
