I've had it with Wolfenstein The New Order
Shoddy Code, Shoddy Optomization, and piss poor frame rates.
I am running the game at minimum settings and it still is barely playable. GPU usage at around 25% on low and 40% on max settings.
I have tried about 20 differnet combination of graphical settings already and this is just getting old. Some games perform worse at minimum setting than at say medium due to offloading processing to the CPU, but this isn't one of those games so that is out.
My BIGGEST issue isn't that I get 45fps avg on lowest settings possible. It is the shoddy code with it
Remember this? Titanfall fire rate affected by code? You can read through the comments but some games are coded in a way where frame rate affects the gameplay. This is one of those games. At 25fps, There actually isn't a lot of sudden lag. There is, however, a slow down of everything. You suddenly walk a lot slower, and guess what? So do your enemies.
At 60 fps, both you walking, and your enemies shooting and falling are EXTREMELY fast.
ok. Stop, I know some of you think im crazy. This sounds like the general idea of how 'lag' and FPS works. But you don't get what I mean unless you actually see it. The FPS and gameplay are literally locked into each other. I get naseous playing it due to how sudden the movement speed slows down or enemies start speeding up with my shots.
This here, was after updating everything to even get the game to run in the first place. Do a quick search and you'll find that multitudes of people are having technical problems. One being where the game won't run on Windows 8/8.1 unless you run it in compatability, and also that you absolutely need the latest driver patch or else the game won't start (for some, this included me).
Did I mention the audio synch messes up constantly?
