    Glad to hear it mate, it's a nice simple solution and with the preview drivers I was getting driver restarts like Erocker had. This way, you have the latest drivers and other games should work fine also :toast:

    No it does not... I can enable the option - but then as soon as I set it to on, and click ok, it will say that it is on for the duration of the time i am in the option... but the tearing will still be there in game, and when I re-enter the options the on/off toggle will go back to off.

    Also, even if I force global triple buffering and v-sync in the nv control panel, it will not stick in game, the game will still run at whatever frame-rate it feels like.

    I am moving to a new apt right now so I did not have a chance to test out the solution of applying the settings directly to the exe yet... but thanks guys for all of the help. The game itself rocks... just the tearing was killing me. It's not a single line tear for me as in other games but like a huge strip that moves around on the screen like an old VCR with bad tracking.

    A cheat program that allows to add money, health, ammo, etc in game with just pressing a button...
    Much like cheat codes but easier to use...
    There are ppl that dedicate themselves to create this stuff for games and even profit, like a well known place called cheathappens.com, legit stuff but they require membership to get access to first hand cheats...

    I dont think i ever managed to get console working on any game, so i will skip...
    Jut playing clean again, i installed a bunch of patches and stuff and the game is running smoother, less glitches and it seems to me textures improved a whole lot too, the game looks fantastic, i installed like 2GB worth of extras...

    Something called crash fix worth over 1GB and a Rage patch worth 1GB, i think the patch is something that was said to improve textures...

    "You can choose to design a game around the specs of a high-end PC and make console versions that fail to hit the design point, or design around the specs of the consoles and have a high-end PC provide incremental quality improvements," Carmack replied. "We chose the latter." - John Carmack


    Well this tells everything ... PC guys should wait ... a few months , lol ...

    Yes, wait a few months until we've all forgotten about the game.

    I've finished it and it was entertaining but then so is watching squirrels climb along wires to get at the bird feeder. I'm left feeling let down. I always viewed Id as a powerhouse of supremacy. But this soulless, pretty game was like flicking through a glossy lingerie catalogue with air brushed models.

    If Doom IV is a reality, I'll certainly not pre-order it. I've already dismissed it as Carmack now has his focus on consoles. I'll watch that bargain bin.

    Would I be foolish for waiting on the new patch that fixes blurred textures?
    I was hoping that issue plus the 8k texture and others would be fixed in the patch as well.

    I expect the wait to last after BF3 release and ... let's say ... could be as well even after skyrim and MW3 ...

    one thing Rage could benefits from heavily ... is the fact that not MW3 nor BF3 will have modding tools.

    Im very interested to see BF3 jets ... shacks, we'll have to make one in Rage ... if the tech proves it ... in crysis was hard, making all that physics code.
    As reviews didn't like the jet handling in SP ... i hope it's better in MP , but i don't want a crappy jet physics and wonky version thrown in, i rather have no jet or some broken physics flying around.

    Tell that to the gaming industry - that's the whole bullseye and you got it damn right.

    I have been stressing out to bethesda admins about this... the more you wait the more peolpe go bye bye.

    That's the whole point in today's PC gaming. It's so much harder to get player's trust back.


    And it's quite surprising how ID would kind of forget about this aspect, they should have payed attention to how are things on the PC today that in older times stuff got released months after and everyone jumped back to see the new patch. Not anymore, there are too many games, markets saturated, also a lot of crap so ... that's so simple to understand.

    So i think ID was kind of ... presentationally or should i say "mindset" kind of behind of what's going on, i expected them to be AHEAD of everyone else, so to find that carmack was surprised about the intensity of the PC "crap no-options menu" was really surprising ... they've put out console style menus on a PC game with the PRESS ENTER kick in the balls right there ... how they couldn't expect that - mind boggling, time to research the market, PC is demanding as it's ever been - you're product quality speaks on the PC if you're best of the best to MEET those demands - and it looks like ... nobody can really do it in one shot ... oh let's get down the lane , SC2 wasn't great at launch (bnet unfinished and rushed) but it is now great, modding is still not revolutionary in SC2 ... still let's see if SC2HOTS makes major engine and editor updates. Blizzard has never been very good in technology, PC yes, but come on with the multiple kinds of stability issues that hardly get fixed (sp memory leak, cloaking units fps-drop bug, ..etc) ... i could go down , but currently let's see how BF3 does.
