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.

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

The high res textures are included with the Steam preload.

So there are high res textures then...

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.

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

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

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.

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...

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

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

@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)

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.

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

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

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.

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.
