Dismemberment Still Does Not Work

#1 Posted by TyCobb (1945 posts) -

At this point, I have got to ask if anyone else is still having issues with this.

Everything I have ever read was that it was broken when Physx was set to High. Unfortunately, setting it low or medium has done nothing to fix it. Even updating drivers with a clean install has done nothing.

I am still on a 480GTX and on the latest drivers -- 320.49.

Searching Google I cannot find anything recent about this issue. Has anyone had as much trouble as I, or found a way to correct this?

I didn't even know this was a problem. Never had trouble removing limbs in this game.

Edit: AMD Hd7870, i5 3470, 8GB RAM. Incase you needed to know.

Edit 2: what about the rest of the game? Any other issues?

@believer258: Rest of the game is flawless. I was able to fix it originally by lowering the Physx setting. However, that no longer seems to work at all after the numerous updates. I don't even really care that it doesn't dismember, it's just that I know it should and want to know why it isn't.

@tycobb: Dismemberment also doesn't often happen when fighting enemies that are on or above your level. Can you try gojng back to an early area?

You're not connecting to Steam from a German or Australian IP, are you?

@believer258: Hmmm, I went back to Normal mode and went to first area, mostly everything was an instagib, but was able to get some shots where their legs or arms were being blown off. I tried on level 35s in TVH mode (I am 40), but couldn't cause a limb to go or a head to blow up. Been playing for the past 2 days and have not witnessed a single dismemberment in my main game. That just doesn't seem right to me, but it's obviously working after testing your suggestion.

@ravenlight Nope.

@ravenlight Nope.

It does the same thing on the 360 version, for what it's worth. I only remember ever dismembering enemies much lower level.

Actually, it appears it is only headshots that is not working. I loaded up my level 32 Assassin and can get legs constantly to go, but not a single head explosion.
