Welcome to the SHIV Forums, sandblastedskin.



What OS are you running, have you all the latest drivers. Not to be too negative, but I've heard that the 8600gt is not the greatest graphics card in the world, but I could be wrong on that.

i got a 8600gt and i have that problem only later in the missions. it has gotten so bad that i can't play this fantastic game anymore. i can run at over 8k compression in the beginning of my mission but later if i pass 100 compression i get about 1PFS. it is not the gfx card because every single other game i play (even the most gfx intensive ones @ max settings) have absolutely no problem.

Happy to see that I'm wrong about the 8600gt. It's funny, but SHIV runs differently on different computers. Sometimes changing the settings ingame or for your graphics card makes a big difference. Having the AA or AF set too high can also affect the way the game runs.

unfortunately, im stuck with vista. more hassle than its worth. all my graphics settings are as low as they go in game, and most stuff is off in the graphics card menu. the card is excellent for all my other games, but this i think is vista!!!!! i'l play around a bit more, but if i cant fix it by wednesday, its going back. shame, cuz it looks really good.
