Windows 7: The Force Unleashed Slow framerate... a fix?

09 Sep 2010   #11

64-Bit Windows 7 - Home Premium Edition; Linux Mint 11

Aspyr's PC porting job of The Force Unleashed was sloppy. The game is a resource and HDD space hog so it is expected that you may get slow framerates depending on your specs. The best you can do is experimenting with the compatibility settings, and/or patching the game up with 1.1 which allows you to have a low graphics setting -- which is more like high than low, the default being very high -- and/or upgrade your graphics card and/or CPU with something more compatible (gotta warn 'ya that there are high-end hardware out there that wouldn't speed the game up).

Thank goodness Aspyr is no longer doing the PC port of TFU2. Let's just wish this one's a better (and more decent) port.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

As i said i fixed the issue problem solved with high graphics and no lag everything looks perfect and very nice
you just have to tweek yea settings in ati catalyst abit and switch the settings to application managed for anti aliasing and that and then it works perfectly other people with ati cards should do this

my card is as near high end as you can get it is a sapphire hd5850 direct x 11 graphics card is about the 3rd best card out from ati so i dont think you would find anything else more compatable

as i said its just the settings and ati drivers have always been touchy when it comes to games as they want everything set in the settings correctly or i have even seen some games freeze apon loading because of this and when ya set ya setting right then it goes perfectly

Could you please walk me thru that? I got similar lag with TFU on my 4200 radeon. I plan to upgrade to a better card in a month or two, but I'd like to improve performance any way I can.
