View Full Version : Graphics curiosity
05-04-2012, 12:12 PM
I'm trying to play the demo at the moment but it' giving me some framerate issues. I'm sure this could be easily solved by turning off shadows and tuning down the graphics in general...
But in game, I'm unable to do so! I can change them at the start menu, but the options are all greyed out if I try once the demo has started.
Am I the only one with this problem? I'm curious as to whether this is because it's only the demo and not the full version, or if it's a bug.
Game looks nice; eager to try it :S

What are your PC specs? On my rig (specs below), the game performs very well. My frame rates are 60-70+ even with a bunch of stuff on-screen.
Intel i7 860
8 GB RAM
ATI HD 5870
I'm also not really sure what problem you're having in regards to turning down the settings. On the main menu, all of the graphics options are available to me. Have you changed your settings on the menu? Are the settings just not being applied in-game? I'm not entirely sure what problem you're having there.

Sorry, I should have been a bit more specific!
What I meant was, I can change the graphics options in the main menu but it doesn't apply the changes to the game, and I can't change them in-game.
Intel i5 2410
Intel HD 3000
Pretty awful card, but I can run Skyrim with lowered settings just fine. =/

I figured it out! Apparently, the graphics settings menu is bugged. Try changing the settings to suit your PC, then starting a new game. If the settings don't take effect, close out the game entirely, then re-launch it. When you're taken to the main menu, change your settings once more. Now, when you start a new game, your graphics settings should take effect.
Here are two screenshots I took showing the difference between the highest and lowest settings, just to prove it worked. My frame rate also jumped from 60-70+ to over 150!

I hope this bug isn't present in the full game!

I tried it; unfortunately, it didn't work! :(
I'll keep trying I suppose, thanks for the reply. Not sure if I want the main game or not if there are bugs in its future =/
