Did anyone get the new 185.20 drivers? Did it help your GTA performance?

Stash unsure...

But I have the pros...and cons

Pros
  • Comicial
  • The Cars break up(sort of) like real cars
  • More realism in the game. When you have an accident you go through the windshield.
  • Great cars and fast ones
  • Police and AI are slightly smarter. They actually come after you if you punch or smash into them.
  • The enivronment is more destructible than SA
  • Huge game
  • ... I am sure there is more but haven't had time to play the game.
Cons
  • Some cars are impossible to drive.
  • No side missions wth? I wanted to some pizza missions and some police races
  • Very few stunts that you can do. You don't even get awarded any money
  • Game is still graphically buggy. Certain textures still don't load or load after a while.
  • Stupid restriction that has been placed. - Graphics
  • No SLi/Crossfire support absolute stupid.
  • The graphics are good but not ground breaking.

I will add more once It comes to me.

Looks like a console port...

Never have I seen a game ever say please don't turn off system when its saving... Which suggests that its a port rather than build from the ground up.

OK I have been asked several times about the last mission glitches so thanks to Fusion Racing telling me how to do the spoiler Here's what to do. BTW these don't happen to everyone, but it happens a lot. And it is for either of the last missions. Also I'm posting this because Tooly who is a new member E-mailed me to get the answer and I missed his e-mail so I'm putting it here and in my other thread in my sig. Sorry Tooly.

This starts after the chase and right after the cutscene with Little Jacob.
First you can skip most of the fighting by running away from the car towards the water. Then jump up to the dock and up the stairs and veer right to the back of the casino. Then go up the stairs and onto the casino roof. There are holes on the roof that you can shoot everyone before jumping in and going after either Dimitri or Pegorino depending on if you did deal or revenge. Then jump down and go to the room with the stairs where they are. (if you did the mission before you know the room) After the cutscene just get to the helicopter like normal and when you jump to it and need to climb up you have to hit the space bar as fast as you can. Try using both hands. Then another glitch many had including me is the helicopter doesn't look foreward so you're basically flying blind. There's 2 ways around this. 1 is to hold down caps lock and that will focus on who you're chasing. The second is to hold down the right moouse button and steer the camera that way. Both are hard and you don't have a lot of time. Don't worry about shooting just follow and you will eventually get shot down and end up on the island with the statue of Happiness. You can take it from there.

I can't put my res to my native 1920 x 1200, and when I use the 'norestrictions' and set it to my native, It doesn't render properly.

When SLI is supported, do you think I'll be able to turn it up?

Anybody know when the patch is coming out?
