Yah. Where is my FarCry 2 DLC?!

I'll think I'll pass on extra Time Trails too.

Relic has DOWII right. The game ships with the basic content (Four races isn't that basic though) content, then gradually they are adding free content up until a paid for expansion, then back to free content till the next expansion.

Sweet!

Although this guy solved his issue the same way I did (uninstalling/reinstalling PhysX), he points out that the reason why things are all borked. Check it out here.

I'm happy that the guy narrowed it down to what it was. Maybe now the devs can fix it.

I hope it does get fixed, this un-installing/re-installing between two games rubbish is a pain in the ass.

This is something that probably needs to be reported to NVIDIA, as it's a problem with their software.

Already reported it earlier when I found out the problem myself, and sent a report this morning pointing to that topic with more detail.

I don't know why there needs to be so many PhysX folders that support games per revision. If PhysX picks up and gets adapted with more titles, I don't even want to think about how large the folder can get. Granted the AGEIA folder is only about 95MB right now, but still. This is something that seriously needs to be redone, and fixed.

I'm sure there's TONS of people out there that are compaining about game performance that don't even know it was an underlying PhysX issue. Heck, most people didn't even know Mass Effect supported PhysX to begin with. Almost all of the majority of posts I've read trying to hunt this issue down are always complaining how Mirror's Edge or <insert game here> performs like crap with PhysX enabled. Who would have thought that it was as simple as reinstalling PhysX? Unfortunately, there's no ON/OFF configuration for PhysX in Mass Effect, and I'm sure certain other games don't have it as well. Editing the .ini files for Mass Effect has no change, either. But the performance boost with a proper installation of PhysX makes the game so much smoother.

One post I read somehwere was utter crap. Some individual even recommended the person having issues to go out and buy a 200 series videocard for SLi - when he already had a 8800 GTX. People are just so retarted sometimes. Yeah, let me go spend 500 bucks on something I can fix in 10 seconds... for free.

Working here via the menu but I never use that, V- sync off and mouse smothing of it's the only way to go!

But if you prefer terrible mouse lag it's your choice, me and jackup dont

Not every game has mouse lag in v-synch you know.

Mirror's Edge does have terrible tearing though.
