Quite frankly I am about 30 seconds from uninstalling Rage. Two hour + Steam download only to find that it's not a FPS at all, it's a hybrid. Talk about not getting what was advertised to you. Then there's the graphics - I mean...really? For a minute there I thought I must have loaded a new Borderlands expansion. Then there's the constant crashes - and the texture rendering flaws - and the screen tearing with no in-game vsync - and no advanced graphics control options - and no Anisotropic-filtering - the list goes on and on and on and on....ad infinitum, ad nauseum. I'd ask for a refund, but I know how that goes. Suffice it to say that I'm more than a bit disappointed. I thought Bulletstorm was bad... For those of you who keep playing it, I wish you good luck, but to be frank, I'll have more fun with a Mass Effect 2 replay this week.
Goddamn it people, if you cant race then just use the console cvars: "cvaradd vehicle_boostMPH 300" - or bigger number to increase boost speed "cvaradd vehicle_god 1" for vehicle god mode "cvaradd vehicle_infiniteboost 1" - no comment needed and if you're slow to react, use: "cvaradd timescale -0.5" for 2x slowmo
Well, the graphics problems stem from a few different problems.
1) The game was made first for consoles and brought over to PC. iD feels that PC gaming just isn't what it used to be and will now be making games for consoles and porting to PC. BOOOO!
2) iD tried to make the game for PC be more compatible for the video cards and systems out there but in the end they're also blaming driver conflicts, the drivers out there for the cards just can't adequately do justice to the game, apparently.
I tried the AMD driver fix released myself but it didn't really fix anything, the game just sort of .. well, lagged, lagged so horribly that I couldn't even play, I just had to exit as soon as possible. It would seriously take me a couple of minutes just to move a few steps, it was just that laggy.
