No matter what I do after the first mission, my FPS drops to a max of 10. And I notice in MSI afterburner on screen display that it says the game is running in OpenGL mode. I think I will shelve this until a patch is issued. Was fun before I ran into the 10 FPS wall. EDIT Stayed up waaaaay too late trying to figure this out. Apparently some smart people from various forums cooked up a temporary fix here's a link to the steam forums : http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2154053&page=11 Also, if you cut and paste this into the launch options of the game in steam, it'll improves things a LOT. +cvaradd g_fov 20 +set com_skipIntroVideo 1 +set com_allowConsole 1 +fc_maxcachememoryMB 1024 +ik_enablesmoothing 0 +image_usecompression 0 +jobs_numthreads 4 +mem_phymemblocksizem 512 +m_smooth 0 +m_rawinput 1 I just copied these from the steam forums, and my FPS went up a lot. There's still some issues with streaming textures, but this is a step in the right direction. Now I'm gonna grab a smoke and get a few hours of sleep.
