Default Re: Singularity

The whole texture streaming thing was to alleviate load times for levels because developers assumed gamers all had severe ADD and that if a game took more than a few seconds to load we would lose interest and find something else to do like pick our noses or something. Its also catering to consoles that have to load the game from slow disc drives or hard drives and have low amounts of VRAM to work with for textures.

It's all understandable and whatnot, but what's not acceptable is that Raven let this issue slip through QA and not even allow end users to delve into ini files to fix it themselves. What happened Raven? You used to be cool.
