Feel Like an Idiot

So I’ve been playing on TV for a couple years, never realizing I didn’t have it in Game Mode. So a couple months ago I switched over to what I thought was Game Mode. Still late on everything and feeling like there is no difference.

Fast forward to last night, I go into settings and see I turned the picture to Game Mode and not the actual system.

Now that I am finally on Game Mode the difference is night and day. I am early on 100mph pitches up and in, I NEVER caught up to those before.

For those saying it’s just a small difference and not really needed, sometimes a small difference can make a world of difference. Went 3-0 in ranked afterwards. I feel much more confident now in this game. Pitching timing is off since I use meter, but I’ll figure that out in due time.

Can you elaborate on the difference between the picture game mode and system game mode? Im on a monitor so it doesnt really matter for me. just seems strange ?

SDS

The PS4 has its own game mode. TV's have their own game mode. it basically tunes your tv as close to a gaming monitor as possible

My TV is an older Vizio, probably 5-6 years old at least. In the display settings it has a Game Mode section, this changes the picture only. It also had a Bright, Deep, Normal, and a couple of other options for visual display.

When I changed that I thought I had switched the system itself to Game Mode, but alas, I had not.

Basically the game visually was crisper than it had been, but not running any differently.

Are you talking about the settings in The Show where you set it to smooth, fast or ... whatever the other one was ?

Yeah thats what i meant... but i never notice that doing anything but game mode on my samsung makes it feel as close to a monitor as it can get.

@ItsFroggyBaby try renaming your HDMI input to PC.. it’s “tools” on your tv remote. Graphics take a slight hit but reduces even more ms. Game mode will still be on also

@bonion thanks bro. Appreciate it

So how would one go about changing this setting on their PS4?

I played for years with the game looking brown, found game mode and only managed to get a lighter shade of brown, said BLEEP THIS & got a new tv.

Its smaller but its not brown.
