is it just me...?

post #1 of 22

Or does Homefront need some optimization done? With my rig i get 50-60 fps in this game in multiplayer. It just dosent seem that demanding of a game.

Interesting. The graphics look very dated so it should run well on any medium rig.

Yeah, you would think that. Im guessing that it's a straight up port from xbox or something, cause my rig should run that game no problem. I think it might be the same situation as black ops was... how it was not optimized at all, but gradually it got better. It's a shame because this game looks like it could be a lot of fun, if they'd only get to run like it should on pc.

I thought Kaos Studios hired the people who did Bioshock 2's PC version to do the PC version of this game...? And that it wasn't a simple port?

Not really. Although things like textures are very similar, viewing distance, particle effects, and physics are improved and all of these things add a toll. Also the 5870 is sadly starting to show it's age.

5870 is more than enough to run pretty much anything, i just wasn't that impressed with the new gen of cards...

Ha, who cares if you weren't impressed. The fact is your older card can't handle newer games the way it once did. Its just what happens lol.

No.
If PC devs want to see the industry continue, they are going to have to optimize games for people who aren't willing to spend $500+ every year on new cards.
If that's the only way that newer games are going to run properly, they are killing their own market by restricting it to less than 10% of the PC market.
This is a case of bad optimization. Homefront doesn't look half as good as BC2, yet it requires more out of a rig?
Not even mentioning the 3-4 hour SP...
Lazy garbage port that was all hat and no cowboy.
