has anyone heard of a random bug that causes FEAR to lockup your PC *Immediately* after clicking the Fear shortcut? ..the hourglass appears then my PC locks up solid (have to hit reset button).. No other games ever do this and when Fear does work it never locks up during gameplay..if it happens its only right after clicking the shortcut .. Any ideas? =/ It did it with the Demo version and now the Full version, running the latest official drivers from Nvidia.com (6800GT) and WinXP SP2 with latest updates.

I have to wait till 12 for the shops in the mall to open.

I'll get there early, though. I have Castlevania on my DS to keep me company.

No hurry for me, I refuse to install it until I get my extra GB of ram and possibly a second 7800GT for SLi. Extra Ram at the very least.

I did a quick bench test this morning.
This is using the 81.84 Drivers (will try 81.85 later today and compare)
My GFX was clocked at 460/1300

These are my exact settings
Advanced Computer Options




Advanced Video Cards Options



Bench Results
1024 x 768 w/ Soft Shadows

1280 x 960 w/ Soft Shadows - 1280 x 960 w/ Soft Shadows 78.05

1280 x 960 without Soft Shadows

1600 x 1200 w/ Soft Shadows



Soft Shadows doesn't have that much of a hit I thought it did at 1280x960.
Game is very playable at those settings, and I wonder how well 81.85s will perform in FEAR.

They don't make any difference on my setup....

81.84
39/67/144
39/67/142
38/67/142

81.85
39/67/147
39/67/145
38/67/138

The test was run at the Auto Detect settings for both drivers
