Some Serious Daddy Issues. Let's Play Perfect Dark Zero
- date: January 8, 2011
Perfect Dark Zero is a first-person shooter video game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Game Studios. The game had a difficult development cycle, during which a substantial part of it was initially designed for the Nintendo GameCube. Due to Microsoft's acquisition of Rare in 2002, the game was eventually released as a launch title in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan exclusively for the Xbox 360 in late 2005.
Perfect Dark Zero is a prequel to the successful and critically acclaimed Nintendo 64 game Perfect Dark, made in 2000. The game takes place in the year 2020, predating the original Perfect Dark's storyline by three years.
As the prequel to Perfect Dark, there were great expectations on this game. For many reasons including a strange development cycle, and being a launch title for a new system, these expectations were not met. Its reception by the gaming community was, to be frank, pretty lovely.
I will be playing through this game on the hardest
Game Threatening Texture Issues
- date: December 20, 2012
Hello. I hope I've put this in the right place, I'm sort of new to Steam AND the forums.
I received Portal 2 as a gift from my boyfriend on Steam a few weeks ago. (I've had to wait this long to post this because they wouldn't activate my account.) And... I have game threatening texture problems. I have to use console commands to get through nearly all of the levels because of how badly messed up it is. I have no lag or speed issues. It runs fast. It's only the textures that are killing it. Here are the issues:
1) Upon starting the game, (Menu is fine, I mean single player mode) everything is black. I can see the crosshair, I can hear everything, and I can move. The only way to get vision it to type "mat_postprocess_enable 0" into the console commands. This also means turning cheats on, which means no achievements, and when I play co-op with someone we can't open any new chambers.
2) Screwed up portals. I can't see through them most of the time. They also seem to tak
Reinstalling while MW3 initial release issues get ironed out
- date: November 14, 2011
So, I'm waiting for all the initial release issues to be found and fixed before I try/buy MW3. A friend already owns it so will definitely be trying before buying, but thought I'd reinstall and get my trigger finger back on form. To that end, how is MW2 these days? I've not played for ages and was wondering if there has been any more ban waves, noobs migrating to the new version etc.
Massive FPS Drop issues
- date: July 4, 2011
I've scoured the internet for solutions. My specs are well-over the minimum. I can easily run Crysis with everything on High.
I've tried forcing vsync off in the Nvidia Control Panel, changing the heapsize, etc.
The only thing that works is changing the resolution in game, and that only works for about 10 seconds before the FPS drops again. The game is entirely unplayable. It's a great game, but are you ♥♥♥♥ing serious? It's been 4 or 5 years since release, and support has been completely dropped? That's some major bull♥♥♥♥. Especially considering that these problems aren't listed on the Steam store page.
Does anyone know of any other fixes? And no, I'm not installing XP on another partition for the sole purpose of playing this game.
Stuttering issues with Darksouls
- date: February 26, 2013
hey to anyone in the chat..ive just recently got darksouls, and while i have the whole dsfix and have updated my ati drivers... i still have a lot of issues with stuttering during gameplay. I found it pretty much is the same regardless of how low i set the rendering resolution so i dont feel like that's the problem it will look decent but will stutter every other second or two and the menus can be a bit unresponsive (aka having to hit enter or the end key several times before they work)...anyone have any experience with this issue and/or know how to fix it?
my processor is an amd anthlon dual core 3.20GHz, my installed ram is 8gb, im running windows 7 64bit, and my video card is an ATI Radeon HD 5570
Any help would be appreciated. Thankyou!
Update from the THQ CM regarding PC Issues
- date: August 15, 2012
Thought this might provide some hope that some changes/ a patch is been worked on by the devs. The problems people are expriencing have been acknowledged and its seems like they will do what they can. *fingers crossed*
During the Community Summit both Jay Fitzloff and I (Mathew Everett) were under the impression that full .config files and final keyboard/mouse and controller hookups were going to work as promised when the PC version of the game launched. That was the plan at the time from a specifications perspective.
Unfortunately, especially at the end of the development cycle, sometimes things change at the last minute, and this was one of them. This puts us in an uncomfortable spot as we were acting on the best information we had at the time, and it has turned out not to be in the final game (at this point).
Since it was always the intention to implement these features, as I type this, the development team is checking to see what ite
Keyboard issues with Darksiders
- date: September 22, 2010
First, i think it's an very bad design descision to let the player no choice of the kind of control, he want to use.
To my Problem, the game detects an xbox360 controller which simply is not there. As an result of this, i cannot play the game.
I have tried the following things:
- Unplug special hardware. (like usb devices, mouse and keyboard)
- deinstall special hardware from the device manager
- looking for ini files
- a lot of reboots
Still the same Problem. Anyone have a solution for this? Except buy a piece of plastic for approximatly 49 Euro.

I'm not new to PC Gaming, though I'm sorta new to building my own PC.
The issue I've ran into is only with a few games. Games like Dishonoed, Darksiders and even Far Cry 3 I can run on Ultra settings without any issues. Though, games like Risen 2, The Witcher 2 and Metro 2033 give me huge FPS loss and I can't figure out why for the life of me.
Current computer setup.
Windows 7 64
Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67GHz Bloomfield
12GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 532MHz (7-8-8-20)
Gigabyte Technology Co, ltd EX58-ED4P (Socket 1366)
GeForce GTX 550 Ti (EVGA) 2047MB
2x WD 932GB Sata HDD
Not, when I bought most of this stuff it was due to the price not going to lie but for the most part i've been able to run anything I get my hands on no problems at all. Until now.
The witcher 2 is almost unplayable unless I put my screen resolution down to 1280 x 720 and event than I get around 40fps
Risen 2 is my biggest concern though, it's not a very intensive game like say Far Cry
[EU/UK] Steam CD Key issues anyone?
- date: April 28, 2011
Patched with the EA Launcher by running the Darkspore.exe, but it seems it's not accepting Steam CD Keys at the moment. Putting the key in takes me straight back to... putting the cd key in.

Hearthfire Issues breezehome crash and freezes.
- date: October 5, 2012
So I just wanted to highlight some of the issues I've had since installing this. Load order is perfect, not an issue, and save isn't corrupted in any way.
- I can no longer enter Breezehome, instant ctd. This also happened with another user in a previous post.
- The display cases don't work, you can't put weapons in them.
- I go into Lakeside Manor the game pauses for a couple of seconds and then resumes as normal. Like it JUST about to crash but doesn't.
- Crashes happen outside of Lakeside Manor also.
Probably mod incompatibility related, not sure which though because BOSS aint flagged anything up. If anyone has done any fault finding please 'pipe up', but I know it's early days yet.
