Aaaaaand the patch has made the game absolutely unfuckingplayable. I get probably a frame every 5 seconds now.
Fantastic. Thanks, John. You're a goddamn fucking champion.
Steam forums rife with people for whom the patch made things a fuckton worse. A few who say it fixed stuff. Large majority it either completely broke the textures, or can't even run anymore.
I can't even play. I can't get out of the bar. It takes a minute for the screen to update a single fucking frame.
I reckon this patch got tested on their in-house testing equipment again. Well done, id. Truly, job well done.
Edit : Somehow got it working again. Deleted all cfgs and startup options, still wouldn't work. Turned off Vsync in driver. Still wouldn't work. Turned off CCC AI. Still wouldn't work. In a fit of aptly named rage, fiddled with every fucking option in existence, and now it runs...
Patch still broke Vsync, though. You can try to switch it On or Smart in the video panel, it doesn't do anything.
Christ what an incredible clusterfuck of a launch.
