That is a deal! I personally loved Mafia 2. Scripted as all hell but the great characters make it.

Really looking forward to this Tomb Raider reboot, even if it seems to lack the actual Tomb Raiding. I've really enjoyed the last few games.

Not even going to try it until it gets patched to work with Nvidia cards. Seems people are having a spot of trouble..

The real question is whether the house is back to being the same as in TR1?

I want to lock the butler in the fridge!

Played and finished in two sessions with a GTX 560Ti (latest 314.07 drivers, W7 x64), disabling "exclusive full screen" (prevents the game to start at all) , tessellation and TressFX (TressFX impacts very badly on the performance).

I only had a crash at the beginning of the second session (and then I happily discovered the game sets checkpoints every major action you do, so you don't lose any progress as well).

Seriously, if you already own, go and play it, you're missing a very very nice game :) (I hadn't enjoyed a TR so much since the first one on PSX, probably).

There's no Lara's Home in this episode ;)

I will only play the game in max detail, the way the Devs wanted it to be played. :)

No turning down setting, I just won't do it! :D

This is why this game sucks ATM...

A quick vid I made on what I get. (Sorry about the poor picture quality. Recorded with my S3 phone...) (Also used masking tape - taped to the ceiling to hold my phone in place whilst I recorded lol.)

I'm playing it fine on my 560TI with tessellation enabled, just can't run TressFX for very long before it slows to a crawl, I think it has to do with double precision shaders that Nvidia Didn't implement as well as AMD, that and the fact Nvidia didn't get the Final game code until 2 days before release. Otherwise it's fine, TBH her her looks fine on normal.

I can't get past the QTE where you need to fight the dude off twice with F then side to side then mash e! Don't really want repetitive strain injury!

So all games should be perfect simulations of reality? You do realise that games are well... they're just games!

But maybe you have a point:

FPS issue 1 : Gunshot victims recover inside of ten seconds by hiding behind a low wall.

FPS issue 2 : Reloads are consistently too quick, and running over a loaded weapon wouldn't normally transfer all ammunition to your personal stash.

Temple Run issue : Runner never gets out of breath and actually speeds up the longer they run for.

Pac Man issues : Eats all those powerpills and never once stops to take a dump.

Donkey Kong issue : Ape never seems to run out of barrels

Frogger issue : Cars seem to ignore giant frog jumping across road.

Machine gun jetpack issue: The machine gun jetpack!

Have you tried without EVGA Precision? I find it stalls DX11 games Like Arkham City and Max Payne at certain points.

I have now fixed the issue!

Goto NVIDIA control panel, Manage 3D settings, and click on 'Program Settings Tab'

http://i.imgur.com/ii9oGut.jpg

Untick the 'Show only programs found on this computer' (Shown above) Then click on 'Select a program to customise' from the drop down. (Shown below.)

http://i.imgur.com/iR6OEx7.jpg

Now the 'Tomb Raider (2013) will show a blue and white icon next to it, like the rest.
To get NVIDIA Drivers to recognized the launch of a selected program and use NVIDIA Profiles, you need to manual add the .EXE for that game.

Pictured below, will show you how to add the .EXE to that profile. (Depending on where you installed the game, will show differently to my screenshot.)

Those that have it installed on Steam will have to go into Steam Folder\streamapps\common\YOUR GAME\ Click on .EXE

http://i.imgur.com/5mFdTY5.jpg

If all done correctly, then re click on 'Show only programs found on this computer' in the first pic. \then click on the drop down, and this will show you all games installed on your computer with NVIDIA Profiles enabled.

If some of your games ain't showing, then you need to follow this guide and enable them all, to take advantage of the Profiles.


Hope this will solve everyone's issues! :)

Cheers,

Simon.

Good work, Si.

I've put off buying the game because of these issues, but I may pick it up now. :)

Right, I think this is the final fix, with 314.14 Beta drivers. Before I update to 314.21 Beta drivers.

Copy these setting, and all problems when running the game maxed out should be solved. BTW - No more dips in FPS with tressFX enabled. :)

Yes, me too!

Great game though - am very surprised. Right up there with the Batman series.
