    True crime on xbox is good, but on the pc the game is horrible.

    Just bought this game.
    Installed the high resolution texture pack right from the start.

    Have to say noticeable jitter when driving around in the day time in the game.
    Night in game driving is fine though.

    Does your system fans run at 100% and system overheats?
    i faced this problem, and it is quite common, rendering the game unplayable

    My system has not over heated.

    I have had 3 crashes with this game which appear to be related to cut scenes within about 18 hours of gameplay.

    Will run GPUZ in the back ground and see what temperatures I get with this game.
    On average my GPU gets to about 65degC when gaming.

    This game is horrible when it comes to PC compatibility. My brother has a different motherboard but all of the other parts are the same, and unfortunately my game is unstable as hell. This is the only game my computer absolutely hates that I have bought recently. Seriously disappointing.

    very good gameplay!

    I finished this game, last week....
    excellent gameplay....i like it!

    My Old System (Core2Duo E7500-HD5670 D5-4GB DDR3) can run this game in high settings @ 48fps:D and it's good enough to me.:cool:

    and so...this game is one of the best games ,I played:)

    Seems this game really works the GPU.
    My GPU hit 75degC a few times.
    Hovers around 65-72degC most of the time in game.

    Those blanket "bug" comments could easily be more a reflection of inadequate hardware or one of many other things. Without such details as platform played on, system spec, digital or hard copy, patch version, driver versions, etc, it simply can't be taken seriously.

    Now why would you say that?

    http://gamebooze.com/fixed-sleeping...g-lagging-ctd-poor-fps-black-screen-no-sound/
    ^ The above are a compilation of game bugs and work-around fixes for those bugs. In my profession they don't call a work-around a resolution to a problem, and men of all professions know you can't paint an ugly girl pretty with food coloring.

    For my specs see my specs. Game is up to date. I use steam and it auto-updates the game. Drivers are up to date, I keep up on my gpu drivers like a bloodhound. If you even watched the videos you would see that it does not happen all the time. The fact that the errors are not consistent show that there are bugs. The issues I and a number of people have with this game are a reflection of our hardware interacting with the game's software. The software provided by the publisher who paid to get the game developed does not run adequately on my up to date hardware and patch versions for the game. You are hardly qualified to say who should and should not be taken seriously.

    I wonder if DX has any dealing with this, I mean I recalled DX having almost monthly updates, does that hold true for DX, 9, 10, 11?

    Binge says thanks.

    Every time I install a game, which is almost daily with all of the video game streaming, DX updates if the game uses Direct X. DX could be messing things up? I doubt it. I highly doubt DX is causing the battle sounds to just up and disappear, or subtitles to randomly stop showing up.

    Please clarify if I'm getting this wrong :)

    sometimes a clean sweep is in order, bro. Just I recall DX having updates often atleast 9C and some games would install updates that would affect another games playability. Id just get the latest Possible from MS back in the day. Sort of How Punkbuster screws up sometimes and only way to update it is through manual means per game using their updater tool which doesnt run in background just updates the files mainly.

    if sounds are suddenly disappearing it could be the driver for onboard audio or the game or even DX/open AL

    Had the same problem of high temps and low fps. low like 35, running two GTX 570s
    I turned High Quality Anti-Aliasing to normal and it now runs like a dream, hitting 172fps...
    the supersampling murders everything that tries to touch it.
    Turn that down to normal, see what happens

    If using high res texture pack, set shadow quality and shadow filtering to medium, and turn AA off(At 1080p or higher resolution the aliasing isn't that bad with this engine).

    Everything else can be at highest settings.

    Been monitoring my temperatures with the main games I have been playing lately and strangely Sleeping Dogs hits the GPU the hardest by a long shot.

    Very strange.

    Anyway, despite yet another Zombie pack for a game, I am interested in getting it, depending on what they are going to sell it for on steam.

    Bought the Street Racer DLC.
    Personally I don't really like it.
    New Bike, bullet Proof preset out fit, Dragon detailed bike helmet and three extra races.
