VERSION 1.2

* Version number reported on Title Screen.
* Invert Y-axis Mouse option added in Game Options menu.
* 30FPS cap has been removed. The game can now run at higher frame rates if your video card supports it.
* Refresh rate is set by default to the lowest available within the Configuration Tool.
* Potential desync in Multiplayer resolved. This could occur in Co-op Survival / Versus matches when Tower Objects were collected. Only affects games containing a machine with an Athlon 64 processor.
* Minions can now cross the entire length of a bridge in the Ruborian Desert while carrying a health upgrade back to a Tower Gate.
* Fixed an exploit which allowed players to forge/upgrade equipment without losing any minions.
* Melvin will now never reappear in the Halfling Party Area after he has been killed. Existing Save Games affected by this issue will also be fixed.
* The "Kill Kahn" quest will now always show as completed when Khan is defeated. Existing Save Games affected by this issue will also be fixed.
* A number of additional minor / rare issues resolved
* All 1.1 fixes

Hmm... more incentive for me to pick this one up soon.

I wish I had more time to play...

Superb, the game does not play bad at constant 30fps, but I prefer to double this rate :)

Excellent, I might replay it at 1080p with 16AF, 16AA, and 60fps. Console this m3dude. :p

I assume this wont kill previous savegames right?
You never know these days..

No problem with my savegames and how to higher ur fps, or does this goes automically?

I assume it goes autoųatically :)

This game is one of my favorites so far this year. Far too short (to me) though.

Thatīs how I play TDU and Dirt and all other games already. :lol:

Sorry to break to you the hard way, but one 8800GTX (mine overclocks nicely to 660/2050) is about 4 - 6 times faster than your crappy console GPU. The Xenos crap was already beaten by PC hardware when the X360 was released. :p

Sorry about the offtopic post. ;)

660? wow thats nice! x360 got nothing against that.

does this game support co-op online? if so, is it crossplatform?

What's the consensus on how it plays on PC vs 360?

Is the game long and deep(varied) enough to warrant a $40 price?

I've tried both and its a toss up for me. It plays well on a controller, but since you can also play with a controller in Vista, I use that for the added graphics. Frankly, either is fine with this game.

Yeah, I really doubt you're playing Dirt at 60fps.

Now Overlord, I'm really liking this game. Really fun. Gonna try this patch ASAP.

The 360 is lucky to maintain 30 on it. :p
Of course my pc sucks at it even more!

u dont play any of those games at 1920 x 1080 with 16xaa/16xaf at anywhere near 60 fps. you could overclock your 8800 to 900 mhz and u wouldnt play at those framerates.

and no pc gpu is 4 to 6 times faster than xenos. xenos is about even with r580, better in some areas worse in others, and u should know g80 is not even 2x as fast as r580 across the board. so explain to me how g80 is 4 to 6 times faster than xenos?

Thats TDU, sure itīs not always at 60fps but itīs visually a lot better than the 360 version. :p

Iīll post screenshots of the other games tomorrow, itīs late here.

Xenos specs are closer to R520 specs but it has even lower PQ, and actually when I had my old 6800 I ran tests with Oblivion, Quake 4, Prey, Hitman Bloodmoney (and a few others) at 1280x720 with no AF and AA, and all three games ran better than their X360 counterparts with the comparable visual quality. How many times again is a 8800GTX faster than a 6800? :confused: :p

Sorry but the Xenos has no chance vs. a 8800GTX, especially not if it had to render at a higher resolution with proper AA, AF.

I also clearly remember plenty of benchmarks where a single 8800GTX was beating CFīed R580. Crap, a single 8800GTX beats the 2900 in (almost) all benchmarks and itīs suppose to have a superior unfied shader architecture compared to the Xenos. :lol:

but why play with a controller. Tried both with K+M and Controller. This simply plays better with K+M.

xenos is about equal with r580, u rly have no wiggle room here. it has better usable shader performance but worse fillrate. the pq isnt any worse, xenos supports 6x/16x just like r580.

those pics u posted dont mean anything, post pics in 1080p.

6800 doesnt run oblivion better, its ludicrous that you would even make such a ridiculous statement.

8800 is not 2x faster than r580 across the board, it is in some cases, but in many it isnt.

ill be waiting proper pics with fraps on in dirt, overlord, and tdu
