Exclamation [SUPPORT]Rage Issues, Bugs And Fixes Thread

So here is where you can post your issues, bugs and Fixes; For the game RAGE and I'll keep this thread up to date.

And Remember to keep this thread Polite!
[ADVANCED Users]PC Rage Complete Commands(listcmds) and CVariables(listcvars): http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2165723

Note: The Fixes are below in the 2nd post.

Patches:
  • [10/3/2011]Launch Release Version 1.0.0.1 - Exe File Version 1.0.27.6901
  • [10/8/2011]Patch Version 1.0.0.1 - Exe File Version 1.0.27.8258, More Info here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2163657
    Note: this patch Broke the game for most people including myself and is a forced update by steam...[Solved with v2.0 Configs read the fixes for the link]


Issues:
  1. No Custom settings for Video Cards - Having to resort to using Config files
  2. Video Cards not being detected properly by the Auto-Detector Resulting in using 0MB of Vram and using the lowest texture/gfx settings... http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2154243
  3. No Console command Read here to enable the console key: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2154191 & via config file here http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...7&postcount=89
  4. No Vsync options - Results in screen tearing - Forcing Vsync causes the game to crash the drivers and game(AMD)
  5. Unable to skip intros??? To disable the intro videos put this "+set com_skipIntroVideo 1" in the launch options of Rage Via Steam.
  6. Mouse acceleration?
  7. Can't use Crossfire or SLI..
  8. Bad FoV for PC's - Short-term solution: FOV adjustment howto
  9. (Nvidia)Enabling V-sync by forcing it in the control panel causes the game to Stutter and have lines appear: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...&postcount=351
  10. OpenGL Issues: The Game Crashes to the console with this errors: GL_ARB_draw_elements_base_vertex not available or wglCreateContextAttribsARB failed or "Couldn't get glConfig Strings" <- Missing Files or GFX card not compatible? - List of compatible card: http://feedback.wildfiregames.com/re...ts_base_vertex this issue seems to be common with laptops and mobile video GFX processors meaning the game may not run on a mobile GFX chip(Laptops) Requires new drivers for mobile chips and possibly a Game Patch to fix this issue.
  11. Steam issue with continuously launching "Microsoft VC Redist Package" upon game Launch, Possible Solutions: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...&postcount=834 or http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...&postcount=508
  12. Highly and Over-Compressed Mega-Textures results in Blurry and Large Pixelated objects and scenery: http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/54...6F056318558C0/ <- Requires New less-compressed Mega-Textures to resolve this issue!
  13. Logitech Gaming Keyboards(LCore.exe Gaming software v8.01): Causes Lag and stuttering in RAGE due to the gaming software using OpenGL for rendering the keyboard view in it's window. <- Possible Solution: Uninstall v8.01 and Use the Legacy Drivers to resolve this issue: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/441/34...tion=downloads
  14. The AMD HDxx30 Series cards are cut down versions of the AMD HDxx50 cards and are designed as a Media card for HD Videos. This is why it won't run High-end Games and RAGE's engine is demanding. <- The Only way to resolve this is to buy a new Gaming video card, ex: HDxx50's or HDxx70's.
  15. Using a 32Bit OS on a 64Bit CPU to play Rage Causes Game Instabilities...: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...postcount=1309 <- Redo your computer with a 64bit Version of Windows to solve this issue(Recommended Windows 7 64bit). Then follow through the performance fixes listed below.
  16. Using Compressed/Encrypted Hard-Drives For your Steam/Games and Windows Drive Causes Major Rage Game-Play Issues(CTD's/BSOD's, 0fps and game breaking events)...<- To fix this, restore your Hard-drives to a NONE compressed/encryption State BEFORE Playing Rage; As this game requires Constant access to big files and Cache to work properly.


Bugs:
  1. Texture Streaming is bad and slow resulting in always reloading the same textures thus causing the textures popping in effect. [Fixed] With the use of config files See here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2156747
  2. Missing/blinking textures...
  3. Random Crashing: when exiting the Arc, after intro video, including when trying to start a new game and loading new areas. <- Requires Patch to resolve this.
  4. LoD issues(popins dispersing items)
  5. Audio stuttering and not blending properly.
  6. Occasional Artifacts appearing- http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/9...0322215294.jpg
  7. Low Frame rates with occasional fps spikes
  8. Loading saves causes videocard drivers to crash...
  9. Game Fails to start with error code #51.
  10. Shadows turn Green: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...&postcount=438 My Eyes...: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...&postcount=547
  11. Binding keys don't always save and remain unbound and unable to be set
  12. No Sound? this is a common issue with creative soundcards - Possible Solution: Buy a new soundcard or try and use your onboard sound.
  13. Random hangs/lockups where game audio continues
  14. "Rage.exe Has Stopped Working" Cause Unknown...
  15. Radeon HD4000/HD5000 series has missing and corrupted mega texture issues: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...&postcount=283 - Possible fix: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2164454

The slow texture loading is an abomination. I can't believe that this is an ID Software game.

I guess I might as well add that for a lot of us:

-The game just doesn't start up.
- Black screen with maybe the starting animation of that white cube thing followed by...CRASH!

Top issues for me:

1) Major horizontal and parallel lines where the video is out of sync (screen tearing)
2) No options to adjust Field of View angle
3) No options to disable motion blur
4) No options to adjust bloom and other lighting effects/shadows

Game crashes after the beginning intro vids. It doesn't crash technically it just stops working. Alt-Tab and end the process being the only solution. I've verified game cache, run the game in admin and tried several compabilities with zero success.

Win7 32bit
GTX 570
Intel Q4Q 9650

All drivers up to date.

Same, was hoping it would be an easy fix. No go on everything I've tried. I have noticed it tries to install Microsoft C++ redistribute whenever I launch.

Can't play the game. It immediately crashes on startup.

EDIT: Updating my GPU drivers fixed it.
