Optimization Problem?
This game will run at nothing but 60 FPS throughout Green Hill Zone, but when I reach Chemical Plant Zone, the game starts stuttering. This problem persists on and off throughout the game. I have read online that certain people are experiencing an optimization problem.
Does anybody know a fix for this?
My GPU is an EVGA GTX 560 Ti.

Yeah, Chemical Plant is the most heavily unoptimized part of the game (apart from the game itself being quite so, such as only utilizing one core processor of your computer as opposed to two, from what I remember) and tends to leave lingering framerate problems throughout the play session. Even on newer rigs, running a steady 60fps on it is practically impossible.

My laptop at 760m with i7 can't run it at solid 60. My budget 7870 with Phenom 956 can't run it at soild 60 either.

It lags on any modern computer.

no it doesnt. i never get any frame drops.

OH WELL IT MUST HAVE BEEN MY IMAGINATION.
Perhaps you have not yet developed the idea that not everybody has the same experience with everything?

Same problem, constant lag, with intel I7 and Ati 7000M series.
With my old config (core2duo + 9600GT), better framerate, ...

I have best peroformance with Sonic GMI + FXPipeline shader (on windows 7, no i'm on windows 8.1 x64)

The game is poorly optmized. I have a FX-8320 + GTX 760 and I still get a few slow downs here and there. On the other hand, Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed runs 60 FPS+ all the time. Good thing that Sonic Team learned how to optimze their games.

Sonic Team didn't make All-Stars Racing Transformed, neither did they handle the PC port of Generations. :P

Optimizador?

The reason it "lags" is because it's loading the textures, polygons, enemies, etc on the fly as you progress from your HDD and you can either have a VERY fast normal HDD which I use and I get a solid 60 FPS on that level, or you can buy an SSD, but that's the cause of the lag. And I'm running this game in 1080p on a GTX 550 Ti, so no, it's not the GPU. Hell, even people with super high end GPU's have this problem. It's your Hard Drive.

If only it could actually use a good portion of those 16Gb of system RAM I have to load what it needs for the stage completely beforehand before starting.
Those optimizations were to allow the game to work within the limitations of the console hardware. :(

Well yeah I'm not saying the game isn't optimized. Lol But for now, or probably ever, to get rid of that so called lag, that's what you need. But as a general rule of thumb your computer is only as fast as it's weakest part, just like a chain.
