What do Game Hints, Strategic Hints, Tutorial Hints, and Tag Popups settings enable/disable?

8 replies 860 views Edited Jun 19, 2013

So what exactly do the Game Hints, Strategic Hints, Tutorial Hints, and Keep Tag Popups settings enable/disable?

Cause I started a Survivor playthrough, set everything to off, and still get tutorial hints, etc.

Dont think you get tutorial hints on survivor difficulty.

I'm definitely on Survivor and it's still telling me how to quick turn, how to apply a medkit, how to reload, etc.

I checked the options and it says Survivor difficulty. And everything is turned off, except Tag Popups (that's the icons for bricks, melee weapons, etc. right?)

I believe Tag popups are the popups in the top right corner you get when earning a tag,like hitting x amount of enemies with bricks/bottles e.t.c...

^Thanks

Anyone know about the rest? And I'm definitely playing on Survivor (that's the difficulty in the options) and the lack of supplies are consistent with what others have said about the difficulty

I would also love to get rid of all on screen prompts, I am still on my first play through and can not turn off tutorial hints, its really annoying.

 

And of course the pick ups shining in completely dark rooms is super stupid.

 

Why have a flashlight at all?  Just to find the door to the next dark room where you turn it off to find the pickups?

 

Can you say "Immersion breaking"???
