As I’m trying to avoid any further spoilers or gameplay impressions, here’s a thread for performance tweaks, driver issues, and how to wring every last bit of fps magic out of this game. If this thread is unwanted, I’m sure it will wither quickly.
Hm, I’m not sure what you’re asking. I’m a PC-only guy, and my Steam copy is waiting for me at home right now. I’ll be doing some basic performance tweaking tonight and reporting back here, hopefully maximizing fps and visuals for all us Stusserbeast owners.
But as to how it compares to the 360 version? I dunno!
Did anyone else have the Steam vers of Far Cry 2 ask you to repair your .NET framework when you tried to launch it for the first time?
I remember getting something like that with CoD4, I think. It shouldn’t be an issue.
I had the black screen too, but my Maximized was set to 0 to start. So I flipped it, and it worked great. At this point all I can say is fuck you Benchmarking tool. I can’t stop trying out minor changes and overclocking my Q6600 from 2.6 to 3.0 (difference = 1fps). The good news is I never drop below 31fps minimum with ultra [email protected], 2x fsaa (very necessary with this title), and even vsync turned on. Didn’t bother OC’ing my 8800U. So, great performance but that was expected since it doesn’t look as good as Crysis imo.
It’s running like butter for me, too. I got very frustrated trying to make the new drivers work, but you really have to just follow the instructions at the end of the first post in the thread! I had to change “Maximised” to “1” as well, like Gendal, and after that all has been well.
It’s running so damn well, everything maxed, that I’m not even really tempted to drag out FRAPS or anything. I hope it stays like this, but you never know…
Playing at 1920x1200. Other than the annoying black window at launch issues, the game looks and plays quite well, for the 5 minutes I’ve had to mess around. Sadly, it’s obviously attended the Bioshock pre-patch school of Field of View. I think I may keep playing Crysis and STALKER until some brilliant 17 year old comes up with an FOV hack.
If you have the Steam version and are dealing with the black window, get properties of the game in the Steam games list, and add a line like this to your launch options:
