View Full Version : Anywhere to find some kind of performance tips?
03-20-2010, 07:40 PM
So basically this game runs like trash, and its obviously not something new judging from the forums. Just curious does anyone have any tips or idea's other then lowering settings which I refuse to do because well my computer should kill this game.
I7 920 @ 4.2ghz
ATI Radeon 5870
6 gigs of Kingston Hyperx 2000
I turned off any physics effects because obviously I have an ATI card, but I'm at 15-25 FPS. That's clearly unacceptable to me so basically anyone know if the devs plan to actually support this game anymore or has anyone figured out a work around to this poorly optimized mess?

Even nVidia hardware has trouble with it and the game is optimized for their cards.
Anyhow, if I recall, someone made a performance mod, it should be on the Cryostasis forums (the official one, not the Steam one). It's been a long time so I don't know if the topic is still there or not.
The mod does disable/change certain graphic settings albeit mostly unnecessary ones, you probably wouldn't really notice. The guy made a lighter version intended for lower end computers as well but that's not the one you want, obviously.
As for support, well, they won't come out with a patch anymore, I really doubt it.

There are a lot of games out there that are far worse off for optimization, plus I've always observed that ATI have always been pretty lousy with their drivers on the lesser known games, The 5870 being pretty new on the production line would increase the effect of not quite right drivers, plus this was a pretty heavily NVIDIA game from the get go, so until the drivers get updated, you might just have to deal with a lower framerate or lower settings, otherwise I'm afraid your just SOL.
