More on RAGE Tweaking

The Bethesda Softworks Forums have all sorts of tweaks and tips for the Windows PC edition of RAGE, id Software's new first person shooter. Also, an update to the article on about unlocking higher resolution textures in RAGE hears from NVIDIA engineers, who share "new information about GPU Transcoding variables that can increase your frame rates, improve in-game visual fidelity, and reduce texture streaming issues." Unlike the first part of the article mentioned earlier, much of what's discussed in the update is specific to NVIDIA GPUs.

Many games only autosave when you enter a new territory.

You have the F5 button. Funny how you push 'lazy' off on the developers.
All modern games auto-save at sensible points. For instance, in Deus Ex: Human Revolution you often get auto-saves for new buildings, as if it only saved each time you changed city (like RAGE apparently does) then you'd lose hours of progress. If gamers rely on the quicksave button then it takes away all the tension - people tend to overuse it, which takes out all the tension.

Regular auto-saves have become so ubiquitous that I often don't even think of saving when I start playing a game. The last thing I'd want would be to lose an hour of progress, as I'd be pretty annoyed.
