Can't Start Up Saints Row: The Third...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Let me start by saying I have a rig that plays what I play regularly (Sleeping Dogs, Psychonauts, TF2) well at high settings over 60 FPS. The free weekend thing for Saints Row 3 piqued my interest, so I downloaded it, and upon startup, was surprised to find out that I can't even get to the main menu! After the AMD Evolved ad plays, the following little credits screen either only fades in about halfway before freezing or doesn't even load at all, leaving a black screen. And by golly, i can't figure a reason why it would do that. Anyone experience this before and/or know of a possible solution?

So I deleted the game data, re-downloaded the game and now it works...in windowed mode only. Full screen it and it slows to a crawl. This is why I haven't fully given up consoles yet :/

All I know is the it runs worse on AMD cards. I can't max it out. Have to run medium. They know it's bad too.
