Yikes, those betas have been sketchy lately. Thanks for the verification though.

Finished it 5 minutes ago and i liked it a lot Bought the original ages ago but never really got around to playing it.I enjoyed them both equally though,since i never got into the first one until now both games felt like one.

So is anyone getting surround sound in this game? I'm running Windows 7 RC x64 with an Asus HDAV 1.3 Deluxe card and I'm only getting stereo sound. I do have an old X-fi Prelude card on a shelf and Vista x64 on another partition, so if anyone is actually getting surround sound that might convince me to start experimenting.

EDIT: Alright, this is now one of the stupidest things I have ever encountered. So just for fun I decided to set the windows sound to 7.1. In the Asus driver controls you can set the windows speaker setting and Asus driver speaker setting separately, so I left the Asus setting at 5.1 so 7.1 would be mixed down to 5.1. Lo and behold I suddenly got surround sound in Riddick! If I set it back to 5.1 in windows I only get stereo, but with 7.1 activated it's no problem at all. Good job Starbreeze.

I've been playing this and noticed the 182.50 drivers force AFR1 in SLI. This causes random crashes and lockups within 20 minutes of play. Forcing AFR2 is worse with less than 1 minute of play before a lockup. SFR seems to work, but is not as ideal as AFR. I don't want to use the 185.85 drivers. nVidia needs to fix vsync before I start using those.

Do you use SSAO in this game? That could make a difference because I have it disabled in order to use AA.
Yes, I have SSAO enabled with AA disabled.

The 185.85 drivers fixed the SLI crash plus I managed to get vsync working. I have everything enabled minus AA.

Played more of it yesterday and the game was solid stability wise. I have everything enabled including SSAO. Using 1920x1080 with 8x anisotropic filtering forced in the CP and no AA. OpenGL looks great!

I can't get this game to look right on any of the screen settings. I have a 19" monitor and the perspective is weird and looks distorted when you pan around on all screen settings. If I stand in front of a square object it begins to distort and change to a oblong shape when I pan around. What's going on? You can't honestly tell me it's supposed to be like that lol. Any fix?
