No, I wasn't able to - maybe 30 tries now. But I watched the cut scene after you do. Some day I'll probably replay it when there are a few patches and I have newer hardware. Till then, I consider it done

"IGN is so damn biased, they acted like GTAIV PC was a game worthy of gods when it was riddled with bugs and problems, and they're tearing SR2 apart. SR2 is clearly somewhat broken, but not nearly as messed up as GTAIV was."

What are you Quad core guys showing after playing a while? This is what my dual shows. Dual at 3.8GHz btw.


Also, I turned off 1 GPU and there is ZERO frame rate difference between with and without Crossfire. Another CPU limited game?

It's way more messed up than GTA4, in my opinion. Way more.

Perhaps try renaming the game's EXE to something recognised as AFR? (FEAR.exe, 3dmark06.exe perhaps).

I wouldn't say the best of all time, but it does have a good story and a main character you can like.

Saint's Row 2, well you're character is just plain nasty. I mean take what he does to the 'red' gang. Harsh. Still it has a story you want to see though.

my advice is to do as many mini games as you can, not only do you unlock cool weapons and cars, you can obtain inf respect then just do all the main missions in one go and follow the story unbroken.

It doesn't really look CPU limited by that usage. Doesn't look like between 90-100% usage but even lower. I think it's just a bad port and will run poorly on just about any setup.

It's a bad port. ::

Interesting to see how Quads run it though. Though Velvet has a Q6600 and it runs crap for him.

Its not GTA IV but it's fun. There is a hard FPS cap that cannot be disabled. I went into custom and changed things a bit, runs great now!!! Like GTA IV you cannot run it all maxed out, but I dont have an issue with that if a game is fun! See my post above for quad core utilization.

Im using the res changer for 1680x1050, CP shows 640x480. You can get it here to override the resolutions - http://blog.gib.me/2009/01/06/saints...lution-editor/
