So I finally fired up this game. Stopped playing it because there were just too many graphical glitches and I was really irritated that the only in-game graphics options was changing resolution.
Well, there are far more options available now for in-game graphics, and for the most part the glitches are all gone. Figured if I waited the patches and new drivers would alleviate most problems. Sure enough they have.
Still have pretty nasty "texture pop" or whatever you call it, but I think I can ignore that. So far the game is actually quite fun. Think this may be my new time-consumer.
I am curious though, are there any relatively simple fixes for the "texture pop" on AMD cards? Or is that something I'll just have to live with?
