Crazy FPS lag in Just Cause 2

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well I don't know if it's going to be this 1 area, but the beginning of the game is fine. I'm running it at 1920x1080, every single thing max, even the nvidia simulations, and 32x csaa. Anyways, the second part, where you start near the casino, the foliage gives me insane massive lag, like 20 fps at certain views. This normal? Anyone else experience this?

yeah the not needed 32x AA probably has something to do with it. Lower it to 4x.

Yea, I turned it off, it helped a bit. Why go down to 4xaa? Won't that reduce image quality?

Well, anything over 4x is hardly noticeable imo. It just smooths the edges of objects.
4x is fine, 8x if you really want it.

4x and 32x will have little difference due to the fact that you're playing at 1920x1080

If you don't want to, at least try putting it on 8x/8xQ (Q has a blur effect, which is quite nice)

Turning off high-resolution shadows helps, and its a hardly noticeable difference.

Changing shadows from high to medium helps a lot as well. I haven't been able to tell what is lost by doing this.

So is VSYNC known to cause lag on this game?

Because with 1920x1080 AAx8 AFx16 Highest settings (Everything maxed) on my HD6970 with vsync it can do stable 60fps but then drop to like 28fps or 30fps and lag like hell for few seconds.

But without VSYNC it never goes below 80-90fps...

Does this happen to Nvidia users too?
