Ok, downloaded the beta patch, but build id says 788549? Will do some testing soon to see if it solves the stuttering I get, my full post detailing the issues im having is on the performance thread.

Update 2:

Didn´t found out how to attach a file so i uploaded it here:


ok, after restart the game the stuttering is back again :(

So i tried a few things by changing the gfx settings. What i found out by now is when everything is maxed out but the slider for the texturequality is set to "medium" there is no stuttering at all. Fine 60fps.
After i switch it to "high" ingame still no stuttering. The textures have to reload and you see a little different at close look. Everything fine and steady 60fps.

But now comes the bad thing. When i close the game and restart it again the stuttering is back. A look at the fps tell me its switching between 58/59-60 fps at some areas and that breaks the v-sync. Testing area was the entrance after the second ocean walk. Before i had no problems with stuttering.

Maybe some settings/filters are only activated after a complete game restart, after you change the texture quality. But because you see a different ingame without restart i realy don´t know.

Either "high" texturequality is only 100% active after game restart and my system is to slow or there is still some issue left.

So i hope it gives you a clue and you can fix it completely.


BuildID is 788549. Beta Patch worked for me. No more stuttering. Smooth framerate with fixed FPS@60. Before i had random hickups.

GTX 970 Driver Version 355.98

Thx for the quick fix !

My issue is detailed here: link because possible spoilers -

the patch seems to resolve the issue, i could at least play a bit past the part where i would crash but sadly don't have the time to play more.

2 * GTX Titan Z (quad SLI)
32GB ram
2 * 512GB samsung 850 pro in raid 0

tl;dr : patch fixed issue, thanks! look forward to actually finishing the game now!

My game just finished downloading a 14mb patch without me even opting for the beta and the build number is 787129, is this the same as the beta patch or what?

No that is only added visual c++ installers that might be needed for some users.

Still not starting. How do I upload the files you need?
Lord Zannin Sep 24, 2015 @ 3:44pm 
I still have crashing of the game and I don't know why. Before any updates I was playing fine and now it seems to crash after 5mins of play.
Alverick Sep 24, 2015 @ 4:12pm 
Hey guys, I never have this question answered by anyone, but when I go fullscreen in this game, unlike any other game, none of the resolutions stretch across the entirety of my screen (excluding the 1920x1080 res). I want to know if there is a way to stretch the game screen across my monitor screen. Can anyone help me out here?
