Re: DirectX/Vista runs like poo, tweaked Dx9/XP much better
I actually played through the game with everything on Ultra High except for shaders which I left on medium. For the most part things ran fine except inside the mountain (zero gravity area) and in the snow. The frame rates went to pot then. In the KPA areas the frame rates where mostly acceptable, but could have been better.
I'll play it again once we have new video cards that can handle it maxed out.
