Red Faction Guerrilla DX9...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the retail version of RFG and decided to reinstall it. I remember the last time I played this game it lagged pretty badly. I had a dual core AMD and a 6600GT (good times). Now with a better rig I hoped to max it out and enjoy high framrates with no problems.
Well, I was partially right about that. In DX10 the game's fps is in the high 70s causing screen tearing (vsync doesn't work) and also a weird sun glare glitch, flickering buildings and textures in the distance, and fraps and MSI Afterburner overlays don't work. I read all of this is caused by DX 10. It's a massive headache. I've tried adding -nod3d10 in the target space on the shortcut to rfg.exe but this doesn't work. It still launches in DX10 mode. How do I know? Because in order to get MSI Afterburner overlay to work is by alt+tab out and reopen the program. When I do it shows D3D10. Changing the settings doesn't work either. Now I found a weird way to get it into DX 9. Right after double clicking on the icon to start it, I have to immediately right click anywhere on the desktop. Wut?
Why do I have to do this? And why isn't -nod3d10 working? Do I have to buy it on Steam? I'd rather not because it's $20 there. I don't want to take that risk of having the same problem, and owning two copies of the same game that won't work properly.

Clicking the desktop seems to be the only way to do it based on what I found in the Steam Forums. You're doing it right.

Hey, thanks for the reply. It was starting to drive me insane, but I've gotten over it. Now the only problem I have now is the v-sync. It still doesn't work. I'm getting frames in the high 90s to low 100s when not doing anything (just standing still) and 30-40 when destroying buildings. You know what that means don't ya? Massive screen tearing and lag. Forcing it through Nvidia Control Panel doesn't work, and Google searching does me no justice. I just see old posts about people wanting to disable it for performance problems.

I've had some problems getting "old" games to run (The Movies, Fahrenheit, etc..) but this one is just..madsmiley.png
Anyway thanks again. You potentially saved me $20. I thought it was only the retail version. If only a way to actually cap the frame rate and I'll be good.

EDIT: I don't know what happened but it seems that the vsync works now. Either the in game vsync or the one from nvidia control panel.
