I did, too. It seemed quite a let down after such above par game play.
i've heard a lot of people say that, and i really don't agree. i do think they didn't do as much as they maybe had planned, but i was very happy with what i got and well entertained. i'm looking forward to another playthrough soon here... and i don't think i've done that since... the original Deus Ex
really though, I enjoyed the entire game and the ending was good. it served very well to give understanding to the earlier games, and also left it quite open for another sequel-prequel
I got that feeling to, but not from the ending. The ends felt a bit extreme and I don't think any of them played on the original games.
And what the frakk happened to Sarif? He just dissapeard.
@spoiler, lol yeah i know.
see i think the end served to explain what the environment was in the original. in my mind it falls very much in line with it. especially because it is still left open - those were different options, and every one of them was hard line. the only real answer imo is in the middle, and i think that was the point of making them all extreme.
Lol I don't agree at all here. I think the opposite actually, I didn't like the ends in HR because none of them felt in line with the first game.
It was a while ago I played the first game though..
i was going to add the same disclaimer ... maybe we both need to go back and play
Does anyone know if the retail box version of DXHR has achievments or is it only the Steam version that does?
Pretty sure it's a Steamworks title anyway.(Dunno got mine on Steam in the first place)
According to Wikipedia contributors, it is a Steamworks title. Can someone that has the boxed version confirm? I'm thinking about buying it and would prefer the boxed version to download.
Yes, it's Steam only. I can understand you wanting to put the retail box to put on the shelf, though. I got like that with all my Valve games. Getting retail from Amazon is often cheaper too, unless Steam has it on sale.
I got the boxed version and yes, its fully steam integrated, which i found handy as i got the missing link DLC in the xmas Steam sale cheap.
It also installed the game from disk, rather than ignoring the disk and downloading it all as some steam titles do.
I got the boxed version from local shop because itr was like 15-20 EUR cheaper than on steam...
...though likely not the $10 USD I paid over the Steam holiday sale.
me too : )
I am tweaking the graphics, looks very outdated to me on max settings. Will test disabling Depth of Field, seems that is the only option to have an effect on the washed out looks.
Stuttering like a fricking biatch on the fully patched Steam version And I waited so long to get this game.
¿Stuttering? I see many talking about that. Your equipment seems pretty good. Maybe full reinstall of video drivers and game? (in case some settings are messed up)
Yes it happened/happens to a helluva lots of people. Very frustrating crap. Disabling annoying SSAO however fixes this somehow.
Like Drone said, it just seems to affect random setups. People with behemoth machines have also suffered and then there are people with very modest rigs who can run it full details no issue
Other games I'm currently playing without an issue at all include -
I've pretty much finished Alan Wake and Deus Ex HR was my next playthorugh game except I can't because it's practically unplayable whatever settings I choose
Just bought the new-ish DLC from steam during the Deus Ex HR weekend sale for a few bucks. A nice change of pace from Skyrim.
I have the game fully patched via steam, and no performance issues whatsoever. Even running at max settings, FXAA on, etc. And my pc is far from a behemoth.
Which was exactly my point, some people with the most powerful systems have had issues and others with modest rigs can run it full whack with no issues.
Thanks for rubbing salt in the wound by the way . I can play a multitude of CPU and GPU intensive games, no system issues here. This game however is a pain in the backside for me not to mention there seems to be no more patches forthcoming.
Any solutions to this issue would be very much appreciated
Is something like BOINC or F@H running? If the CPU is loaded, it can cause stuttering.
I don't run BOINC or F@H.
However, running resource monitor whilst playing the game showed CPU 0 100% loaded at all times whilst CPU 1,2 & 3 where at about 20% EACH.
Interestingly, the only other game I have had issues with on this rig is Portal 1 which also seems to suffer from weird/erratic CPU usage.
What is the source of this issue? (excuse the pun)
GTA IV plays like silk, Witcher 2, SC2, Portal 2 etc...
Have you tried turning the settings down? Maybe one of them is causing a loop to take excessive cycles.
Just tried DX9 with all low settings at 1920x1080p, here's the CPU usage -
I currently run my CPU at 4.2GHz but it can do 4.7Ghz just as easy.
Use the google to find out how to turn off core parking in windows. Also, set your PC power profile to high performance. It could be throttling due to some strange windows settings.
Also, I just checked your system specs and you are using your caviar black for both your OS and games, that could be causing an issue if windows has anything going on in the backround. It could cause stuttering if the system is accessing the hdd at the same time as your game.
I am running the game off a caviar black 640 that has only games, and a dedicated ssd for the OS so I never have windows running any backround stuff on my gaming hard drive.
