Hogwarts Legacy - How to fix stuttering and frame drops

However, if none of that works and you’re still suffering from issues, there’s one more thing you can do to ensure your game runs as smoothly as possible. Hogwarts Legacy uses an old NVIDIA DLSS file by default, and you must replace it with the updated version of the DLSS file.

Watch this story and subscribe to Xfire on YouTube.

You can either do it automatically using the DLSS swapper or manually do it yourself. The manual method is not too difficult either, as it is a simple file replacement in a particular folder. Here’s how you can update your Hogwarts Legacy DLSS file. Note that this solution will not work for AMD GPUs.

  1. Go to C:Program FilesSteamsteamappscommonHogwarts LegacyEnginePluginsRuntimeNvidiaDLSSBinariesThirdPartyWin64
    Hogwarts Legacy Stutter Fix (nvidia Dlss Solution)
    You will find a single nvngx_dlss.dll file inside the folder.
  2. Make a backup of the existing nvngx_dlss.dll file inside this folder if you run into any issues. However, after multiple tests, it is highly unlikely you will face any issues.

    You can quickly make a backup by renaming the file and adding .bak after the dll at the end.
  3. Go to this website and download the latest version of the DLSS.

    There is a possibility that a newer version of the DLSS file is available by the time you’re reading this. If it does, download it.
  4. Copy the download nvngx_dlss.dll file into the folder and replace the old nvngx_dlss.dll file (which should now be renamed to nvngx_dlss.dll.bak).

Yassin’s Falafel House owner raises over $188K, travels to Syria to help earthquake victims

As nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and humanitarian groups rush to help with earthquake rescue and relief efforts in turkey-earthquake/?id=96913081″ data-ylk=”slk:Turkey and Syria;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “Turkey and Syria, one Syrian refugee-turned-restaurant owner in Tennessee has amassed over $188,000 and counting in donations.

After hearing about the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked northwestern Syria and southeastern Turkey, killing more than 20,000 people, Yassin Terou sprang into action to help on the ground.

The owner of Yassin’s Falafel House in Knoxville — which won the Reader’s Digest Nicest Place in America accolade in 2018 — traveled from the U.S. to Turkey on a mission to help provide food relief, medical care, fuel and shelter to those in desperate need.

Terou has provided updates at the scene on Facebook live with videos showing the barren camps where families are in need of basic essentials like blankets to stay warm and milk for their children.

“We have no blanket, we have nothing to warm up,” Terou translated for a local man in the video. “This is what it looks like … we have nothing.”

Terou said “it’s very sad seeing how people are living right now” in the shelter camps.

“There is a lot of need right here … we’re just doing everything we can and changing our plan one or two times a day because every time we do something they need more,” he explained.

Before he left the U.S. to help, Terou told “Good Morning America” that his motivation was “helping people” who have been impacted “to keep building bridges of love between different communities.”

This quest is very short, and it is a type of quest that occurs often in Hogwarts Legacy. These are the ‘go here, talk to this person’, quests, and they are pretty darn straightforward, as you can imagine. 

In this case, you need to report to Professor Weasley and update her on your progress in both Charms and Defense Against The Dark Arts. This conversation will take a turn for the suspicious when she starts to interrogate you about your unusual arrival.

Daa warned regulator about impact of cuts to charges

The company responsible for running Dublin Airport warned the aviation regulator it would not be able to afford extra staff to keep passengers happy when it came to security queues, cleanliness, and unforeseen problems with airlines.

In correspondence with the Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) over plans for passenger charges, daa said there was a political and public expectation that they would step in, in the event of flight delays, weather issues, or other unexpected cancellations.

The airport authority said the new charges were being set too low given the pressures they were under “in clear unanimity across print media, radio and TV, and social media”.

They told the CAR that calculating staff needs based on pre-Covid levels was failing to heed “operational lessons” learned during the pandemic.

daa said it was clear that passengers at Dublin Airport expected to see “greater resilience and system redundancy” in place to avoid some of the problems that dogged it last year.

The airport authority said the Department of Transport had repeatedly raised issues both during last summer and in the run-up to Christmas 2022 about how the airport was functioning.

A letter from the daa chairman Basil Geoghegan said: “[We] share the view of the ministers, the department, the JOC [Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport], the airlines and the travelling public in this regard. We believe that the correct staffing levels must be higher than the pre-Covid era would suggest.”

In a last-minute plea for charges to be set higher, Mr Geoghegan said there was an expectation on daa to deal with any problems that cropped up, no matter whose fault they actually were.

They had been expected to “step in” after mass airline cancellations due to IT problems and a build-up of unclaimed and lost luggage, even though they were

Head to the marked location on the map within the Hogwarts Valley and approach a small cluster of them on the outside perimeter of some ruins. Cast Levioso on the beast to briefly hold them in the air, and begin grabbing them with your nab-sack. After landing on the ground, if you haven’t caught the beast, they will briefly dig into the ground, leading to a long time of them standing still, making

How one Brazilian startup’s pivot to corporate cards has paid off

Portão 3 was founded as a corporate travel startup in 2020 and had released its product just as COVID hit Latin America and “all airports closed,” recalls co-founder Bianca Pereira.

Although the timing was “terrible,” she said, the company didn’t give up.

Pereira and fellow founder Fernando Nery concluded that the software that Portão had built could still be used to help enterprise businesses with corporate spend generally.

“We also realized that corporate cards are a great tool,” Pereira, a serial entrepreneur and former Cargill employee, told TechCrunch. “However, CFOs in Brazil hate them, and we get why since all they receive at the end of the month is a transaction statement that is impossible to trace back…CFOs also worry that by decentralizing payments and empowering employees, they will have to deal with fraud, payment reconciliation and an overall mess in operations they will have to fix.”

Portão’s platform combined with its corporate card, according to Pereira, solves the problem by doing two things. Firstly, it builds a company policy configuration into the platform that approves transactions.

“We call it budgets; each gets configured into where employees can spend money, how much and when,” Pereira explains.

It also connects to a centralized invoice platform, which automatically reads and interprets QR codes on receipts uploaded by employees to match the details for that transaction, cross-examine it to check against fraud and ensure that each item was purchased in line according to company policy.

In 2022 alone, Portão 3 says it facilitated over $60 million worth of transactions and issued more than 1 million physical and virtual cards. Nearly 600 enterprises throughout Latin America are using the technology, including companies such as crypto company Bitso, CredPago, health insurance giant SulAmérica and 123 Milhas. And impressively, Portão claims to have achieved
