If they will just help ATI/AMD users then they will loose alot of customers buyers from nvidia if they wond help them out, this is f-ing pathetic that they dont answer or show any support, and im using nvidia and i can play just the game for like 5 min and my game will restart the computer so i have to save all the time and quit the game all the time. So Volition/THQ if you are reading plz make an update or answer that you are making an update.

If it is too much for Volition to post a simple acknowledgment on the forums (nothing that stupid happens by mistake, it has been set that way for one reason or another, selling out comes to mind), then what are the "chances" of them actually fixing problems with the game.

they don't even give us a word on a new update, it's been 4 days and no reply, i hope they come out with a new update asap, i just hope now, my hope is diminishing slowly. if they don't, i will have to sell the game , can't play at 20 fps. They are paid for fixing ati problems as they are linked to ati and ati paid them heavily. i don't think, they would have a fix for nvidia users, i have started feeling like i wasted my 50$.

i dont think theyre ignoring nvdia users, I myself am a ATI user, the CAP update that was released yesterday has not helped the majority of the problems, i still suffer huge lag/stuttering and poor sound quality (fixed the sound by customisng the sound levels)


 


Ive only noticed that the stuttering has improved only by a minor amount, the gameplay still has very low framerates, so the game is slow, I have a decnt PC so its the game,


 


What we need is a patch from the game developers and not some rushed driver update.


 


PS I also have the PS3 version and that still has major sound issues where the voices are muted, so Im using subtitles! so this game has issues on all its platforms (especially PC)

Stop saying that Volition is helping ATI/AMD users only. I have a Phenom II 940 @ 4.0 ghz (AMD) and 2 HD5850 Toxics (ATI) And i have ****ed up performance aswell 20 fps outside 40-60 fps inside. 

AMD released a CAP like they allways do for new games. Volition didn't release **** for AMD/ATI users so stop hating on them for only helping AMD/ATI users. Instead go ask Nvidia why they ain't working on a software update for you.



We all need a patch to fix all the issues that are out there. Both Nvidia and AMD/ATI users. Thats where you can whine about if you have to. But stop saying AMD/ATI users are on first place. 



And to Dodge34. Your 9600GT is worse then the 8800GT your friend has. Because your card has a 9 instead of a 8 doesn't make it a beter card.....  Your card is the slightly better version of the 8600GT while your friends card is the slightly worse version of the 9800GT.


Your card is just above the minimum requirements so thinking you could play on high anyways is kinda wierd....

the 9600gt is about the same as the 8800gt   depends on what game u benchmark it with  in most cases your right the 8800 is barely better..regardless  his friends cpu is weaker he mentioned..eitherway  no reason his friend should be vgettin way more fps than him.  this game is hit and miss..evryone is all worried about the ati drivers..its not a driver issue  when  u can set  the game on high or low settings and get the same results  fps wise..least thats how it is in most cases  in forums ive read.. we definately need a patch  ..this is obviously a optimization issue..and im willin to bet its  more cpu related than gpu.

We're certainly looking into any issue presented within this forum (and others) and if a patch is needed, we'll go in that direction. We have already started work on some optimizations across the entire PC version, but as always, there is no ETA on this sort of thing. We of course want to get it out as early as possible to help with anyone running into an issue, but we need to conduct proper testing on each little fix across the entire game, which takes time.


We're not ignoring anyone, just looking at what our players are reporting and going from there. We can't fix an issue until we can properly reproduce it and enable a fix, which is why we are always asking for more information.

Thanks for letting us know you are investigating these issues.


I'm sorry you have to sit through people trashing your company while crying for help.
