    I dont know if anybody else has this problem, but on my 1520 w/ Vista and medium settings, the game crashes every time it loads Fort Frolic. I can load the level by turning visuals and res to minimum, but it still crashes sometimes after that. Additionally, every time I hack a machine, it gets really slow and choppy.

    Anyone else have this problem? Im running on DX9 mode, and all extra options turned off...

    thanks in advance for any help

    As far as I can see, they both ran about the same. I've just loaded FRAPS so next time I play I get an objective measurement.

    I'm happy so far and hope to stay that way.:yes:

    For those who have an M1710 with a 7950GTX - what kind of settings are you playing at? I've tried playing on high settings at 1440x900 rez and I get some stuttering. Ive also oc'ed my gfx card to 600/700. I'd like to hear what kind of performance you guys are getting so I know if I'm pushing my card to the limits with the settings I currently play at.

    Thanks! :)

    hrmm i run at at high settings on 1440x900 the fps can be kinda low (12 - 60)but it doesnt affect the game that bad. Only get stuttering rarely.
    remember to switch off dynamic lighting.

    I'd get BioShock, but the thing is, I'm scared I'm going to become mentally disturbed. :eek:
