View Full Version : Weird vehicle bouncing issue/framerate issue

5th May 2010, 23:29
I have this problem, whenever I get into a car, it starts bouncing up and down. The engine revs up when the back tires are up, and then back down when the tires are down. It is extremely difficult to drive. I found a youtube video displaying this:


I also have another question reguarding framerates. I have tweaked my settings useing this: http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=104723, however I am still getting 20 FPS even with all the settings turned down. The weird thing is, even at default settings, the FPS remains around 15-20. I've seen people run this game using the same video card (and with FRAPs to record the videos!) without any problems.

The weird thing is, the game generally is slow when I look at a certain object...like if the object uses certain properties, though I can't say for certain what those properties might be. In any case, when I turn away from a certain object, the FPS shoots up rapidly and is just fine. I was wondering what's up with that as well, is there a certain aspect of the settings I should turn off?

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Steam version of the game. Only DLC installed is the ice cream truck (forgot it's name). 4GB RAM, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T8300 @ 2.40GHz, and 8800 GTS video card. Specific/additional specs are here:
