Something is screwy guys.
Honestly... I'm running it with all my settings on Full except shadows on medium and blur is off. This is on my Asus laptop with an ATI 5700 video card, 4 GB ram and an i7-720 processor. The graphic settings are on Auto for Shader Level, Level 3 for Anti Aliasing and windowed. Vsync is off.
On my i7-920 with 6 GB ram, ATI 5870 it runs even smoother than 2010 did at 1920x1080 full frame and same settings.
Checking... Chunx had hell getting his VHR 2010 to look right till he cranked his textures to high or full. Try that if you haven't already.
At risk of me being a one note charley, you guys have rerun DirectX redist? Get it here and try it again.http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=3b170b25-abab-4bc3-ae91-50ceb6d8fa8d
I'm having much more problem with getting a good drivers view. I've adjusted the fore/aft, up/down, field of view is cranked down to 35, the mirrors -- virtual and the big-arse mirror that practically blocks the windshield.
I'm uploading a video I just grabbed. I'll post in here.
