Default Re: Call of Juarez is out

just for fun i turned the res. down to 1280x960, and the AA and 16.
uhm..
wow.. completely playable, frame rates are even better than at 1680x150 with 4xAA..

also, noticed something weird..

i had stutters at first, and it also ran in windowed mode but gameplay was smooth..

i played around with the settings in the video options, and changed for example;
shadows from high, to medium and then back to high.

clicking apply resized the window to full screen and gave me a huuuge fps boost.
in fact it's looking the way it should be !

I spent the last few hours fiddling with this game. DX9 mode runs flawlessly in SLI and at a decent framerate for me in Vista. DX10 mode gives me some problems however. First, the SLI bars do not show up when I run it. For some reason the game does not seem to register full screen mode correctly because if I go into the video settings and change the game from full screen off and then back to on the SLI bars show up. Once I load a level I can tell the performance gain from SLI but as soon as I get to a checkpoint area where the game loads the next section, it hangs about 3/4 of the way through and the game stops responding. I have to disable SLI in the control panel to get the game to run without any lockups or other issues but I obviously notice a performance hit this way. I hope Nvidia releases some newer drivers to address SLI in this game as I do no have issues with anything else, including the DX10 Lost Planet demo so that makes me think its a driver issue. I am using the 158.45 driver by the way.

Yay! I'd like to know the status. Seeing as they lumped us Aussies with the EU version...

when SLi *is* working are you seeing a nice gain in frame rates?

The game looked a lot smoother to me from what I could see. FRAPS does not seem to work under DX10 to verify it though.

Yup, hence my statement.

Im looking to get this as soon as Nvidia fixes SLI in Dx10 (anytime Nvidia). I never played the EU version so Im looking forward to playing a western game.

I tried modifying the drivers myself by adding this line of code

/8800 Dx10 SLI = ON

but that didn't seem to work. I'll keep trying.

I can't seem to get it working. I thought I wasn't the only one which is why I assumed it wasn't supported. Ive been using the 158.45s. I should probably just start clean and do a format anyways.

Mine was choppy at 1600x1200 with everything maxed, but I backed textures down to 1024x1024 and also went to 1280x1024 and it runs without a hiccup now in DX10. Not that it ran "bad" at 1600x1200, but I'd push my mouse button and it would take a bit to translate into my gun firing. Now it's spot on with the timing.
