I'm confused as it seems I’m the only one who complained about bad performance in that area. It also crashed there a few times as well

We'll see what the re-download does.
I didnt get any crashes ... but
Those last few rooms were a bit laggy I guess you could say. For lack of a better term. (Actually a large portion of Act 3)
For me, any room that had lots of water and the electrical effects was when I would notice it, in all Acts.
It wasn't unplayable though .. Just a bit rough in spots.

I put particle effect at Med, and left the rest on High though. Maybe reducing Shadows would have helped a bit.

You can see my system specs below i want to know if i change my GeForce 9600GT and get something better like GeForce GTS 450 or something similar or even better in performance in same price so will it be a good decision? Coz in my country i cant seem to find a Quad Core processor anywhere even in Used and i dont have enough budget right now to upgrade to Core i5 etc. I wanna play The Witcher 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Crysis 2, Fable III, Dirt 3, HomeFront, Just Cause 2, Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, Hydrophobia Prophecy and some others before December Please advise.
Get your hands on a GTX 260, its a sweet card. I highly recommend it, its a beast.

That is a bit odd. Im curious what would be causing it to loop at that point.

But, you didn't miss anything. I seen everything you did, except Mine went straight to credits rather than back to SARAH again..




Im not even sure what to suggest, other than maybe verify the Game cach .. but a re-download should have been suffecient.



I'd keep posting on the STEAM forum, and the Devs should answer , or so it seems from browsing thier forum.
Im going to post about performance issues I faced as well.

While some of these issues are disappointing, you gotta give that team a bit of credit. You dont see Devs that active on a games forum often.

Hopefully they get all of this sorted out before long.
It is a really good, albiet short, game.

Well I don't know what the hell is going on either but I posted the issue here - Steam Users' Forums - View Single Post - SUPPORT - POST ISSUES HERE. Not holding my breath for any quick solutions though.

Anyway it appears the game is crashing just before the credits roll, thus not allowing the game to complete. Have a few crash files in the game's directory folder, including one for the last CTD I got when I beat the game yet again.

I'll send those to tech support and see what they say.

Other than that I'm done with the game as I usually don't do time trials or stuff like that so I'm not missing anything.

Anyways thanks for letting me know I didn't miss anything at the ending.

BTW.....

Sorry for the late reply. I got it via Steam. But i know Coolshop.co.uk are doing it as disk version. There are a couple of other retailers selling it also on disk. It's just a matter of finding them.

ATM Im playing through Tomb Raider Underworld again. Its been a long time since I played it, and Ive always enjoyed the TR games.


Im actually considering playing through New Vegas again. I have Dead Money but not Honest hearts yet.

Lemme know if its even worth getting Sygnus, please.


I have so many games I want to play through..
I get started on 1 with intentions of finishing it, then get distracted starting another one. LOL

Oh .. and i finally got the last DLC for MAss Effect 2 I needed as well .. Overlord.
I have everything else (even the Alt. Appearnace packs) so its complete now. So theres something else to play ....

Well, given the fact that my PC doesn't have the greatest specs in terms of performance (1.6 Ghz Intel Celeron dual core processor and an ATI Radeon X1650 series video card, I tend to play more classic games, like I just finished up Starcraft: Brood War, and I play Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst (It's on a private server so i can't say more) when I want a little MMO time. These games may be ancient in terms of specs required to run them, and the fact that sequels are or already have come out for them but I still enjoy them.
