News Comments > Deus Ex: Human Revolution "Special Message" Tomorrow
105. Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Aug 29, 2011, 10:00 rist3903
 
DirectX 9 or 11? (edit: Guess you're running 9 is you're using XP)
Looking at this chart (last one, CPU Usage) it looks like if you're using 9 and 2 cores, it could take up to 100% of the proc, which may be what you're seeing.

Also, Blue posted this, and you cold try and tweak your settings a bit.

Hmm that guide said Directx 11 had more CPU utilization than 9. Perhaps it is finally time to contemplate upgrading my operating system.

Thanks for the prompt replies!

What's your proc? I saw something awhile back that basically said the more cores you had, the better, performance wise.

Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00 GHz with more ram than I need for Xp, which I am running.

I thought I should have no problems with this and I am only running at 1280*1024 which is my monitor's max.

I am absolutely loving this game, but it is not running well on my computer and I am extremely interested to know why. I have a GTX 460 and a decent two year old motherboard so I don't think I should be getting choppy frame rate while turning on the larger maps, but there it is. This crops up whenever I load as well, unfortunately. Any suggestions?

I can't believe Gamestop is making me root for Onlive.

Lesser of two evils, I suppose.

I originally ignored all the chatter about this game, because it read bad 'on paper', but holy hell, they did a good job with 3D side scrolling looking great...

Now if only castlevania could do this...

I constantly daydreamed while playing through the first one about what these guys could have done with the Castlevania or dare I say Metroid license.

Just because there are positive examples of people in a community does not mean that gameplay mechanics of the genre do not lend themselves to people getting extremely irritated at new players. One person on a team can cause the team to lose, making the others pissed at him.

If you consider that this is a very common occurrence, it is easy to extrapolate from that that quite a few in the community are somewhat unfriendly to the uninitiated.

This actually made me want to see what it was... I don't see the irony though... Isn't To catch a predator about youths? This guy is 51, shacking up with a 30 year old... Again, where's the issue?

The issue is most likely the sexting while married, which has been shown to be an accurate intelligence test of late.

There is some Schadenfreude to be had due to the fact that he was implicitly putting himself on the moral high ground as host of To Catch a Predator.

What do you guys think of the +10 you see during a kill?

I would very much like for them to have that be something you could turn off.

They did work hats into portal 2 with robots wearing them

I would be very interested in seeing how many of those they have sold. The game structure does not seem compatible with microtransactions.

Still amazes me how far Family Guy and its associated properties have gone given that the show nor its creator have had an original idea ever.
Everything is derivative.

Jesus, is it possible for me to go online and not see at least one grotesquely racist message per day?

Welcome to the internet.

As far as the game goes, can anyone translate that video? I am wondering why the blue soldier with the Hitler mustache is speaking to a platoon of red soldiers.

Female sniper! I hope Valve steals that right back.

One thing I have found useful is to make sure you are full when you go food shopping.

This makes it a lot easier to pay heed to the shred of willpower I have in the store and helps me pick out much healthier food to have around in the house for the next couple days.

I recently picked up a big bucket of sunflower seeds

I find it to be a good rule of thumb to avoid food that comes in buckets.

These guys seem like they are doing a great job of getting internet security people hired.

Or fired.

I would play the game more if it didn't force me to be available to my friends list. It would be very nice to have an 'offline' mode. Nothing quite like being in a heated 1v1 and having someone try to chat with you.

How are they going to handle mercenaries for zerg? That will be strange.

I wonder if the choices you make in ScII affect the path of the game in Heart of the Swarm.

No invert mouse workaround. Damn, guess I have to wait.

No Witcher for me until I hear this is available as well.

I wonder why the graphics look so bad.

The graphics look quite good if you are trying to make a game that will have lots of monsters on the screen and not cause quite a few computers to choke and wheeze.

Blizzard, like Valve does their best not to make games that only people with the latest and greatest equipment can play.

They also do quite well for themselves.

/s It is probably a coincidence though./s
