FEAR unplayable


Mrred

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I have a dell inspirion 1520, intel core 2 duo T7500 2.2 ghz, 2 GB, 8600m Gt 256mb, windows vista business running laptop videos 165.01 drivers. Fear is unplayable on all settings, it runs at a near slideshow right when the splash screen fades and the sierra logo video begins. There will be seconds of extremely fast movement, but usually its a slideshow. Is it my drivers or what?

There is something seriously wrong if you can't play FEAR even on low settings with that, my dated dimension PC with a PCI 9250 video card, 2Ghz P4, and 512MB of RAM can run FEAR well on the lowest settings.

I suppose it could be anything from bad drivers, to faulty RAM, overheating (broken fan? using the laptop on a surface that doesn't allow it to cool properly?) or another hardware problem.

*edit*

Try reinstalling FEAR, using an older driver (dig around here for ones known to work well with your video card), making sure the game is patched to the latest version, and see how well it runs other games it should be able to handle (remember you can usually get demos if you don't have any).

i will reinstall, wut is a good driver for me, i hear the 163.14 are good, but i cant seem to find the xtreme-g ones, the website never loads. For the record, this PC runs Company of heroes, oblivion, and supreme commander exceptionally well, as well as all source games.

If it runs those games well, then it shouldn't be a hardware problem at least.

Well i downgraded to 163.14 drivers and everthing works much better now. Except i hear the Xtreme-G drivers are the best for 163.14, but i cant seem to find them anywhere, as tweaksrus dosent ever load for me. Link anyone?

make sure you turn off soft shadows.

soft shadows is a frame rate killer at ANY resolution and quality settings.
