I'm currently stuck on level 10 (End of days, or whatever it was called). I have made it to the shuttle, test-fired the engines and waiting for that mad doctor..

But then nothing more happens, comes about 5-6 monsters..I kill them and that's about it.

Cool game anyway.
Got my lvl. 5 suit, and the Big Force Gun has a really cool 2:nd fire (wish the reload was faster on it).

Get the regenerating monster behind the ship, use the time stopper thing on him and go activate the engine in that one room.

If the refresh rae on your screen is say 60hz,and your gpu can draw more than that,you get tearing.V sync locks the frame rate to your refresh rate so you get a constant 60fps.

My monitors refresh rate is 60hz,if i turn off v sync,i get teraing.I suppose my 4850 can draw a lot more than 60fps at 1440x900 though.

I think you could cap the fps to 60 somehow. I hate LCD's so I don't really know what tearing is...

Not sure if this is already posted, but Id definitely say that the in game Vsync is crap. It caps the game @ 30fps. My solution is to turn that thing off and then use driver level forced vsync on so that tearing will not occur and at the same time a 60 fps cap instead.

in-game Vsync on


in-game Vsync off


forced vsync on in nvcp


Also, having 2 control pads plugged in (an xbox 360 controller and an arcade stick in my case) will make the camera spin on its own. The way to mitigate this is to remove the other USB control pad. Prior to starting the game.

I got it, so what I did was disabled v-sync ingame but enabled it in my nvidia control panel. still a tiny bit of tearing, but not nearly as much without it on - and no mouse lag ^^

just thought I would pass on something I learnt yesterday. I reloaded my os with x64 xp yesterday and then installed Dead Space again but it wouldn't start. It said it couldn't find the d3dx9_38.dll. So I found two of them on the disk and put the one that was 3.67mb in the Dead Space folder and it worked perfectly.

I bought Dead Space yesterday and started playing it. Don't ask me why, but for some reason I opted to install and start playing it on my HTPC with surround and a 42" LCD TV. I only got about half way through the first chapter and suddenly realized that I was sweating shear anxiety at what might be around the next corner.

My wife enjoys watching me play certain games so I decided to stop and restart it when she got home. Well long story short... when I restarted it she made me pause it in less than 15 mins so she could go pour herself a stiff drink just to keep her nerves in tact.

Here is the best story I have to tell so far: The first time one of those little mutated octopus baby freaks latches on to you it made my wife freak out... and then for some insane lunatic of a reason she grabbed me and proceeded to try to hide behind me... which pretty much made me one squeeze short of shitting myself. It was sensory overload!! The game had me so damn worked up and then that little freak jumped out at me and was trying to suck my face off or some shit... and here in the real world I have my wife screaming and latching on to me. My brain lost track of what was game and what was real and pretty much just locked up entirely for a couple of seconds.
