Keep us posted if you figure out why you're unable to play DX10.
Will do - won't be until after I get home from work today, though.
TBH, I think it has to do with my OS installation - I never got off my arse to remove Vista SP2 RC and install the final SP2 release . . . so, because of that, I was never able to install the Vista Platform Update (which includes DX11 support, amoung other things).
I think that is what's keeping the game from running the D3D11 update, which (I get the feeling) will allow me to run DX10.
Anyhow, will report back later!
That makes a lot of sense.
im downloading this game currently its at 48% dam steam is download at the speed of suck....anyhow ill post if it runz in dx11 for me....if not i shall burn my computer and dance until it rains! ah yes
Yeah, it does - and it wouldn't surprise me if removing SP2 RC and installing SP2 + Platform Update fixes the issue. I guess this headache is what I get for being lazy
I can say this much, though - in DX9 mode, with my hardware, the game runs smooth as butter maxed out at 1920x1200. I get the impression the game isn't as "unoptimized" as everyone thought it would be . . . but, we'll see how DX10 goes.
I have to wait until fuggin' Friday before I get this game.
Tacos and this game make a great combo
I don't have the internet at my flat, I hopefully get a phone-line tomorrow. I just moved out y'see.
I'm stoked to play this game, but I've got so many others on my list to finish first. Hopefully Steam will offer a discount on it at some point and I'll pick it up.
Game kicks major arse ..very good play especially as I recently watched The Road movie..if u liked STALKER and Fallout 3 pick this up also Metro 2033 recommended by me !
its like stalker in a world like fallout, works for me
I knew you guys would love it
I do. I wish it would run better, but there is no game that looks as good as this. Just watching people move around looks cool. I'm hoping these 10.3a drivers do something good for the game. Unfortunately I have to sit here a work for the rest of the day just thinking about it.
No problems running it on xbox360 and Optoma HD700x with 80" screen
I'm about to f'off home and I know as soon as I do, they'll friggin' release the 10.3a set. However, I can't get the game until Friday so it's not a big issue I suppose.
O NO not another TW.. It still installs of DVD though right and not like TW were having the DVD was so pointless ?.
Very nice, wow looks like it has what i liked about Stalker in fact it seems like it a lot the old worn out rusty dark. Not many games get that feeling.
Well that pretty much explains why there is not ATI cards listed in the specs lol. But makes me think they have a 470\480 to know this game runs there game.
Love 'em both.
Well, I can play just fine with my ATi cards. If the new Nvidia cards work great with this game, we would of seen it already. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt it. Anyways, I'm hoping these new drivers coming out today do something for the better...
will try this out later with 4890 and see how it goes btw people just to remind you.. bit off topic butwatch also original STALKER movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079944/ ..its long..but its weirdly good
Yeah, some of us have been waiting on this title for a few years now - I had started to assume it would be vaporware
It still installs off the DVD - that was actually how I had finally gotten it to run, via launching the game through the "backdoor" of the Steam directory.
Game is quite good, actually - I have a few small gripes (lack of head bobbing, footstep sounds), but nothing major.
Atmosphere is awesome, too - it's a nice mix of STALKER and Fallout (more the atmo of the original FO1/FO2).
Can't say there's anything "creepy" . . . I'm not one much to be un-nerved by games (TBH, only moments I can recall within the last 10 years was one point in STALKER:CoP, and the whole Shalebridge Cradle in Thiefeadly Shadows).
Although, if you were un-nerved AT ALL by your first run through of FEAR, Doom3, FEAR2, STALKER:SoC . . . there will probably be some moments in Metro that will quickly get under your skin.
I love the lighting, and the lack thereof . . . there've been quite a few times where I never even noticed some of the mutants until they were right on top of me . . . you can see clearly, but at the same time you can't. Pretty neat.
Call of Cthulu gave me THE creeps
wierd, my game keeps crashing on launch, the error is something about nvidiaphsyiclauncher or some shit...*sigh*
Maybe a driver issue ?. Sorry i did find it kinda ironic though due to the recommended system requirements. My sad humor might just bite me in the ass soon as i'm downloading it now and i have a ATI card lol. ( which it did LMFAO )
Just reboot your computer.
Kinda looking forward in trying it tonight just that i have others to play too lol.
Well glad ya sorted ya issues out with it.
