Anyone with a top of the line rig like Jakup try running King Kong:Gamer's Edition? This game seems to bring any system to it's knees so I'm wondering how the new setups are doing (nana2)

My buddy has it on his E6400 @ 3.6gHz paired w/ an 8800GTX. Rarely, if ever, dropped below 40FPS w/ maximum settings. Ran at 70-75FPS a good bit of the time.

I've been playing KK a bit lately. Didn't buy until I had the 8800GTX. For me it runs pretty good in the 30-50 range most of time even with my semi aged Proc. I'm in middle right now. Haven't even reached the good part were you get to play as Kong yet been playing too much TDU and R6V.

Why is the gamers edition so demanding compared to the normal version? I remember playing the normal version with no slowdown at all on even my internet PC.

Is the gamers edition a direct port of the 360 version? As the normal version was graphically inferior to the 360 version for some dumb reason.

What does it have hdr or some such thing?

Yeah, the GE version is supposed to be a direct port of the X360 version.

Haha (xmasgrin) That's about what it's really like. What's it going to take to keep this game above 60fps cranked!

Better programmers / better drivers.

It's not a hardware issue.

Crap, forgot to ask. Was any AA or Anisotropic filtering enabled?

I swapped out my 7900 GTX w/ an 8800 GTX and 1024 was running pretty good. Intense areas would still choke a bit so I'm hoping to get it to run @60fps constant minimum @1024x768 no AA/Aniso once I get my Conroe & EVGA MB (xmasgrin)

Unfortunately AA/AF dont work on KK:GE.

If the Gamers Edition uses StarForce, then that's another crappy game I'll refuse to play.

I don't think the one I downloaded uses StarForce. I just had to put a key in once and then it ran *shrug*

Why do you say that about AF? Does overriding it not actually work? I enable it in the NV CP and the game runs fine but I haven't looked close enough to see if it's actually working or not.

Does anyone have this game on DVD that came with their 7900 GTX? I'm willing to plop down some cashola to whoever is willing to sell (xmasgrin)
