Default Vin Diesel IS... The Wheelman: Official Thread

Got this today at Gamestop... hate buying from them, but the woman was shopping and I needed to waste time.

Haven't played it yet, but I wanted to post a pic of the MASSIVE list of video options this sucker provides. Seriously... you thought it was a console port... how wrong you were!! Look at this insanity!!!

I'll report back on what you can force through nHancer... I hope a lot.

I'm kind of scared to launch this puppy.

Game actually looks really good and is DAMN fun. Color me surprised.

Trying to force AA though... only thing the game needs really.

Also, at 1920x1200 it runs at like 90fps on my rig, so it is well optimized. This is no Saint's Row 2 (thank God).

Have you tried renaming the .exe to the UT3 one?

No, I will try that later. Forcing AF works, for the record, and looks a lot better.

Just wrote this on the Steam forum as a mini-review:

Quote:
VERY fun game. The controls are spot-on on PC and the visuals are nice, but what really stand out is that the game is just madcap insanity kind of fun. Every moment feels like an over-the-top Hollywood action movie and the story is the same way. Car chases are insane and so it the "car melee" dynamic, which has you swinging your mouse around Wii style in order to bump other cars.

This is not realistic at all, you can ram a car head on riding a motorcycle and not even be thrown off sometimes, and when you are you don't even get hurt. This is balls to the wall fun and I very much enjoy it, sort of the opposite of Grand Theft Auto IV (though I love that game for different reasons).

Performance is great, on my GTX 260 the game flies at 90fps in 1920x1200. Sadly there are NO graphics options other than resolution, so it feels like a port. It takes up the whole screen though, and as I said it controls well, so it's not too bad. Forcing AF through the control panel works great, but AA does not, sadly. Maybe that can be worked out soon.

In short, if you like madcap racing games with tons of action I HIGHLY suggest a purchase, unless the lack of AA and other graphics options will highly annoy you.
It's really fun to play.

Changing the .exe to ut3 or UTGame makes the game a black screen during 3D gameplay... fail.

Tried super sampling, enhance in-game setting and override, nHancer and normal control panel, nothing works at getting AA for this game... double fail.

The game would actually look really nice if it had AA, in my opinion, as it already looks pretty good for how well it runs (which is to say very, very well).

Also: fun game, in case I haven't said that already.
