I also had a graphics related crash(can't remember the error but it was something with 3D-related issue). I was already using the latest nVidia drivers.5 hours in, first crash. That's 1 more crash than I'd like, but not bad. It was an nvidia driver error, so might not have been completely the game's fault anyway.
I'll give that a try, mine crashed a couple of times yesterday while trying to tweak the graphics settings. Not sure about the drivers on my rig, before tweaking the settings I was getting strange slow motion every few seconds.The new drivers seem to have worked. Also, for anyone who alt tabs a lot, set the display to borderless window.
Well deserved guys. I absolutely love the game!We're the most successful non-Valve game on Steam apparently, which is nice.
I haven't played Unity yet but I've read that it will barely work with my GPU if I'm lucky. GTA 5 runs smooth as silk. And Unity vs GTA 5 is more than a fair comparison. Or we can bring Watch Dogs into the equation.He claims to have it maxed out but missed all the Ultra graphics options.
Also it's pretty sad to see even TB claiming that it looks great, when actually it's little more than average in 2015.
Why not? The openness and seamlessness are not unique to GTA. Content streaming tech exists for a reason in game engines. The graphics engine is just something that lives on top and uses your rendering horsepower to make what's your screen look as awesome as possible - limited by view distance and LOD. In the case of this game it's using about 1/2 of TB's CPU, anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 of his GPU, 1/2 of his VRAM etc, to get 100+ fps of something that looks like a PC game from roughly 2-3 years ago. And frankly some parts of it look 10 years old without even nitpicking. It was really bad that they left a horrific example of that in the first tutorial level. The gang's getaway car looks absolutely horrible even though the scene has hardly anything in it.Compared to how open and seamless it is, you can't expect more.
I know, that's probably why he missed them - and also because the menu sucks. Infinitely scrolling vertical scrollboxes instead of dropdowns so you can't tell what level each setting maxes out at without literally trying and failing in each box separately. Console UI at its best.Also, I don't have any of those options available. Not every slider goes to ultra.
I can't believe it. I just can't. I want whatever pixie dust the Scots are snorting these days, because it can apparently cause magic to happen. It runs on my PC at more or less a constant 30fps (lowest I saw in the benchmark was 23 in a rainy transition from night to day) and looks better than the 360 version I had been playing on. I can't obviously crank it to the highest, but it wouldn't be a stretch to grab a refurb card from the "recommended" spec to fit on my board and get even better looks out of it.Well I have no self control. Just bought it, rig is an ancient email@example.comGHz + Radeon HD 6850 2GB + 4GB RAM, so we'll see how this goes.
