Agony Q

Does Spectator mode chew internet with downloads?

Recommended Posts

This is an odd and most likely stupid question.

 

When going into spectator mode am I downloading a 1080p video like if I were watching twitch.tv on high quality?

 

Same question for Theatre

 

Any help would be appreciated

No.

 

Spectator mode and theater aren't just videos being played back. Think of it like this: 

 

You're watching someone running down a hallway. You make note of when their leg moves, how much it moves, where it moves to and how long it takes. As they're running down this hallway, they are about to shoot a watermelon (why not) that's at the end. You would take note of which gun they're using, where it is aimed and when they fire it.

 

That's what Theater/spectator mode does. Replaying data that your game has kept track of. This is why sometimes the reticle is off and events look a little different.
