So apparently its running very well on teh PC, also nVidia and AMD have released drivers so be sure to upgrade your GPUs.

And apparently there wont be additional HD textures after all, what you download from Steam is what you get.

Not gona lie, kinda bummed.

I'm fine without the HD textures. I didn't want to download thirty gigabytes of data.

Still looks and runs better than consoles also here is some gameplay looks fine to me and textures are good.

#4 Edited by Colourful_Hippie (4367 posts) -

Didn't they say that there was going to be HD textures or am I imagining that?

#5 Edited by AlexW00d (6281 posts) -

The high res textures are included with the Steam preload.

So there are high res textures then...

My copy's pre-loading now. We're doing fuck-all in class tomorrow, I'm seriously considering skipping to play Bioshock...

#7 Posted by crimson26 (49 posts) -

@colourful_hippie: there are prob built into game no extra download there with preload.

#8 Edited by gike987 (1758 posts) -

He did not say that the PC version won't have higher res textures. All he said was that they are included in the game and not an extra HD pack you have to download.

#9 Posted by Corvak (1093 posts) -

Skyrim only split them into their own pack because it would have changed the system requirements significantly. Bethesda wanted to be sure a wider range of systems could run the game.

Most PC games have higher res textures built in these days.

I have my pre-load installed. I'm looking forward to this game, reviewa aren't bad at all, also.

I might get it for PC if my laptop can run it above 30 fps (ATI Mobility Radeon 5650).

#13 Edited by Glic2000 (14 posts) -

Does anyone know how big the PC version actually is? I just wanna know how much HD space I need to free up.

#14 Edited by BeachThunder (11987 posts) -

The textures are pretty good; so, I'm not sure we really need an HD texture pack.

Also note, I had anisotropic filtering down because my little 570 didn't like it when I tried running the game on the highest settings :o

@glic2000: Apparently it's 17348MB.

#15 Posted by KenLevineIsCool (23 posts) -

Just unlocked for me. Played for around 1 hour, so far it's amazing. Playing on my macbook pro retina, the top config. on Very High, stutters a bit but playable. Yeah, I know I need a real gaming rig...

#16 Edited by flakmunkey (82 posts) -

The PC version is 10GB larger than its console counterpart. Those extra gigs are your high res textures

#17 Edited by thetenthdoctor (291 posts) -

Glad to hear. If I get this, it will be on PC.

#18 Posted by zenmastah (920 posts) -

Use the Konami code to unlock 1999 mode, no joke.

LOL

sweet HD textiles.

Here's hoping it scales well. My PC is aging hard and fast (Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 was a particularly painful wake-up call), and I don't want to have to wait until I build my new one.

#21 Edited by zenmastah (920 posts) -

Its still a UE3 game so itll run just fine even on older rigs.

*Its unpacking in EU right now..omgomgomgomg

#22 Edited by EndlessObsidian (476 posts) -

All pre-loaded and ready to go. I believe in T-minus 4 and a half hours I will be exploring Columbia and loving every minute of it i'm sure. Also, at the risk of sounding blasphemous, does the PC version support 360 controller as Bioshock 2 did not? I ask because I have my tower hooked up to my TV and want to play from the couch.

#23 Edited by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

My PC can't really run this at 1080P without a sub 30 FPS. When I try to switch it to a lower rez, it doesn't stretch the image to fit the screen, it just scales it down leaving a black bar frame. Any idea how to fix this?

#24 Posted by Tearhead (2169 posts) -

Why does the game dip to 30 frames so often when turning on vsync? I hate screen tearing, but I don't see why my frames should take such a hit with that enabled.

Have you tried reducing your desktop resolution as a workround?

#26 Posted by CollegeGuyMike (389 posts) -

3 hours and 15 min left until it unpacks. :(

#27 Posted by Svenzon (720 posts) -

Goddamn it. I've been spending a lot of time tweaking graphics settings back and forth, since I got some annoying framerate dips. Five minutes after shutting the game down, I realised my computer was set to a lower performance mode. Will try it in actual gaming mode and with fresh drivers again tomorrow.

#28 Posted by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

@dauthi693:

Your, Sir. Deserve a medal. It totally worked. Not the most optimal solution, but it works.

#29 Edited by SlashDance (1818 posts) -

I'm not getting great performance over here (with a 670). Ultra is unplayable and very high stutters like a motherfucker in some areas and when opening doors. Kind of a bummer. :/

Installing the new drivers now, but apparently it's not miraculous.

#30 Posted by Optix12 (619 posts) -

@slashdance: Really? check your setup maybe because im running a 660 (not even ti) and only had very quick stutters when its loading a new section full of enemies/buildings. And I maxed everything to see how bad my card would do and was pleasantly surprised (this was also before i got Nvidia experience thing which told me my drivers were 3 months old)

#31 Posted by Heltom92 (713 posts) -

Playing on high on my laptop with a Radeon 5870 and it runs great. There's some occasional stuttering but its extremely brief and only seems to happen when first entering a new area. By the looks of the steam forum it seems to be a common problem.

The game itself is incredible. They absolutely nailed it with the atmosphere. The first 30 mins of just exploring the city is great.

I'm playing on hard and I've already died a few times (those turrets are a pain in the ass) but it's really fun to play so far.

#32 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5589 posts) -

Damn it. I should of preordered it on Steam.

#35 Edited by crimson26 (49 posts) -

If your using nvidia card new drivers came out increase fps by a large ammount.

#36 Posted by SlashDance (1818 posts) -

Indeed the new drivers make a world of difference. Between 40 and 60 fps at all times on ultra.

#37 Posted by PillClinton (3291 posts) -

This may just be the first game I purchase at full price in quite some time. I don't know if I can wait on this one!

#38 Edited by ThomasG666 (154 posts) -

I hope it'll run well on my 4890....

So I'm guessing your monitor is 16:9. You will get black bars if you run a resolution in another aspect ratio. if you try 1366x768 or 1280x720 the black bars should go away. There might also be a way to stretch non native resolutions into full screen either within the game or with a config if its allowed. usually UE3 supports stretching.

a hard v-sync can drop your frame rate down to thirty if you ever render below 60fps. So if you are above 60 most of the time and your fps drops to 59 then it drops your frame rate to 30. Some games have smart aka adaptive v-sync which doesn't drop frame rate like that but still blocks most screen tearing. The only thing to do is check and see if there is another v-sync option, turn off vsync completely or run the game at settings where your frame rate never drops below 60.

#40 Edited by Dauthi693 (130 posts) -

Just a reccommendation don't start it on 1999 mode out the bat atleast have a bit of a play without it to get the feel for everything first annoyed it checkpointed as i died losing me most my money while i was trying to work out how to aim down sights luckily it wasn't to far into the game.

#41 Posted by crimson26 (49 posts) -

Good to know game has fov slider if you were wondering.

#42 Posted by Shookems (474 posts) -

Unlocked at 12, took 30 minutes to be ready to play

#43 Edited by BaneFireLord (2941 posts) -

There is some MAJOR texture popin. I dunno if it's my machine or drivers or what, but it's damn near unplayable for me ATM, no matter what graphics settings I choose.

#44 Posted by kishinfoulux (2351 posts) -

Does anyone know how to activate the Industrial Revolution bonus stuff? Got the game off of GMG. I followed the instructions given, but I don't see the DLC menu available in the game. It's still grayed out.

#45 Edited by zenmastah (920 posts) -

Damn, even at 1920x1200 im maxing my 2GB card..knew i shouldve gone with the 4GB versions.

If anyone is getting drops to 30 from 60 btw, enable vsync and triple buffering via D3DOverrider and disable the ingame vsync.

Yeah, I was wondering this; I think I'll avoid using it though - don't really want to unbalance things. Anyway, it just seems strange that I haven't found a way to enter the code.

Thanks alot dude lol im not joking is in game vsync broke because i did as you said but with nvidia settings and i swear i got huge fps increase i went from 30-60 on gtx 580 to 60fps ultra no drops what so ever even in skyline or large battles.

#49 Posted by Syndrom (361 posts) -

So we need to upgrade our drivers?

Anyone running this on a HD 7870? I got the game for free cause i bought that card. Still have to download it.
