I've given up on playing the game until a patch is released, so hopefully it comes soon.

It's great you have hope a patch can fix that mess of a port. I feel we have another Double Agent on our hands. ::

Did THQ do the port in-house? Or did they outsource?

Outsource.

And when you say Double Agent you need to do it in front of a mirror, three times fast, and then Sam Fisher hops out and slits your throat.

The game can't even use one video card right, let alone two.

patch is out

http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/44...Patch-Released

General performance increase around 20%

This will vary depending on both the computer specifications and game settings.

Fixes

3rd Party controller scrolling issue has been fixed.
Corrected various crashes reported across all versions.
Corrected a crash in “Drive-By” Diversion for Danish version.
Corrected a crash in “Streaking” Diversion for Spanish version.

Removals

Original frame cap of 32 FPS has been removed.

Additions

New variable frame cap has been implemented. This will smooth out spikes in overall framerate.

Dear Voilition,

Thanks for fixing your game with a patch relatively close to release. I appreciate it.

The draw-distance is still ****ed though.

And GTA4 is better, no matter what Crainger says.

But I really do appreciate the fact I can actually play the game now.

Thanks,

NarcissistZero

Patch did basically nothing for me except allow me to use my Rumblepad2 now.

Frame rate is still total crap, high teens to low 20s but seems worse because the game is constantly hitching.

My performance inscrease was immediate and obvious, I would be surprised if you got no bump at all. I'm playing on max settings except for shadows, which I have on simple, and AA, which I have at 4x. I get 40-45fps when walking now, which is SWEET. It still dips down when driving, but only to the high 20's, rather than all the way down to single digits.

ATI is too slow with driver support. The game more than likely doesn't have a CF profile. Try renaming the .exe to oblivion.exe.

This is why I stick with NV right now, monthly driver updates suck when a new game launches and your card has no support for it.
