Dead Rising 2 really stressing?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I got DR2 from he Christmas sale and when I was playing it (specs in sig rig) I was getting sometimes as low as 30FPS. I get about 80FPS on the main menu.

This is on 1920x1200, all the eye candy. I would've though my rig to be able to handle this? I'm running all the latest drivers, DR2 is fully updated.

Is it just a really demanding game or is there something wrong?

Thanks for your time

Turn down the AA a bit and im sure you will be fine. It can get pretty taxing trying to AA all the zombies when it gets hectic.

Yeah thought that might be the case.
I'll hardly notice it anyway, I'm not that much of a visual freak. I do enjoy a good looking game though.

Out of curiosity, what controller are you using to play the game (if you're not using KM)?

Game does support up to 1000 zombies on the screen at once so it should be somewhat demanding

Well, atm I am using the K+M but I was thinking of using my XBox 360 controller.
Standard XB360C + Wireless thing I'm using

Or, just one of these would do too.

Your using a 5970, You shouldn't have to turn anything down. If I were you id want to be punishing my card for the price I paid for it so would accept nothing other than to maxx it out. Its up to you, But your card should be able to handle it.

I don't think the game supports crossfire
5970 is out

I think its an NVIDIA game, because my specs are slightly worse than yours (Not on my sig server rig), and I can max it out perfectly.

Oh, so no Crossfire means I'm effectively using a 5870.
+ Respect for the 5870 :3

I hate the whole support or not support crossfire/SLi. Makes me sad. Ah well, what can you do?
