How does the full game compare to the demo?
I tried the demo to check out how the game looks and plays, and while it is beautiful, the performance is not great. I do get a constant 60 fps, but I get a lot of stuttering when moving. It really killed the mood for me. It doesn't matter what settings I have it on, the demo stutters for me. I'm wondering if the purchased version doesn't have the same problem.

The demo is using a slightly older build than the released game, so it's possible there are some minor differences, but there should not be anything too major. It's likely that you'll experience issues with the full game as well, if that happens in the demo.

What operating system are you using? What are your system specifications?

It's possible something has gone wrong when downloading/installing the demo, so you could try to reinstall it and see if there's a difference. Updating your drivers and checking that you have the newest version of PhysX[] and PhysX Legacy[] installed could help as well. Is there any difference if you do these things?

Let me know how it goes. Cheers. :)

Thank you for your recommendations. I already have physx legacy from an earlier game, so I'm not sure that's it. I do have the latest driver for my GPU. I have tried verifying cache for the demo, but I still get stuttering.

I have a GTX 660, an i7 3770 @ 3.4 GHz, and 12 GB of RAM. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.

What I haven't tried is running the game through administrator. Or run the game through compatability mode. What would you suggest?

@Indianapolis Jones: You could try those, but unfortunately I don't think it likely that they'd help. :/ This does sound weird, so unfortunately I'm not sure what could cause this. Did you also try updating your other drivers to see if that'd help?

@KPCzombie; While this is not exactly the right topic for this, we'd be glad to help you with your issue if you tell us a little more. Have you tried installing the PhysX Legacy drivers I linked in my previous post? Doing that could solve your issue. I also recommend checking out the pinned FAQ thread at the top of these forums. If you can't find a solution that helps, feel free to email us with a detailed description of your issue. Also remember to mention your operating system and other system information. You can send the email to: support[at]frozenbyte[dot]com
