Extreme lag even on low settings!
I bought Shadow Warrior a couple weeks ago and started it up, only to find that my fps was about 3 frames per second! I checked, and I more than meet the minimum requirements, and i also put all the settings down to their lowest, including resolution, and nothing. I really want to play this game, and I'd appreciate it if I could get some answers!

Minimum requirements means will run... it doesn't mean it will be playable. Recommended requirements are what is recommended in order to play the game properly. I had the same issue with HL2 & Oblivion back in the day.

Anything I can do? I already upgraded all my drivers.

what are your hardware specs? I'm assuming they are below recommended as you made a point of saying they were above minimum rather than recommended. Based off that I would have to say that the only real thing you can do is upgrade your hardware.

lol, thats not true at all. minimum sysreq is minimum of what you need to be playable. that info would be useless if thats what you need just to launch the game

By unplayable im talking the game will technically play but with issues (like the ones this guy had) that could render the game relatively unplayable. That's what recommended specs are for. They are specs for running the game without issues. When I said I had similar issues with HL2 & Oblivion I wasn't joking. I was just OVER min specs for them and could technically play them but not in a very playable fashion. HL2 had horrible horrible lag/framerate and crashed right at the half way point. Oblivion had game killing framerate issues & Crashed unless i set the draw distance to a game breakingly close distance.

Try turning off mirrors, that setting gives me the biggest FPS hit.
