RAGE PC Texture Fix Coming

John Carmack tweets about plans for a new texture option in the upcoming patch for the Windows PC edition" of RAGE, id's new first person shooter: "We have a bicubic-upsample+detail texture option for the next PC patch that will help alleviate the blurry textures in Rage." A follow up tweet offers more on this: "@DesignerDon our first test of a higher res page file didn't help much, because most source textures didn't actually have any more detail."

Game is fun, and I got a new system specifically for this (and BF3/Skyrim) but the blurry textures is a real head-scratcher. The game looks beautiful, and has the best draw distance and clarity of any game I've ever played (I am a big fan of that as it makes everything much more believable)...but up close the textures are terrible, even with the new option checked. I guess it will be patched as above but how did this stuff not get out during testing or the beta or whatever. Maybe it was all known and no one cared enough to make a big deal about it.

Now I keep reading they only released half the game. Apparently there is a whole town with quests missing. The town Gun Barrel and they are releasing the rest of the content before the holidays as dlc.

Apparently $60 US is not enough for the full game of their work, lol.

Id be surprised if that was the case, it would explain the ending though. Time will tell, if the DLC turns out to be a 500k unlock file then well know for sure.

I finished the game, took me 29 hours and that wasnt a 100% job still left lots to do. My complaint, it was way too easy. I didnt play on the hardest difficulty but I doubt thats going to make much difference. Regen health and med packs and second and third chances IE defib, plus fouth and fifth chances with recharging of defib... Health boosters, Damage boosters, Regen boosters (non of which I ever needed to use) I dont think its possible to actually die in this game, and Im playing on a PS3, must be a total cakewalk on the PC. The ending was very lame and really summed up the only real problem I had with the whole game, not enough enemys, double the bad guy total and this game would be GOTY because everything else about it rocked.

i still get ridiculous amount of screen tearing in this game.. and not on any other games ive been playing on my new machine

i suspect it has something to do with the way they implement the framecap and working the game for a 60hz refresh rate on TVs.. but what is weird is that my monitor is already set to 60hz - but somehow its not happy

ive forced vsync in the nvidia panel, ive switched it to every vsync mode they have in rage.. nothing fixes it

and its a weird kind of tearing, where you just barely have to move to see it.. its almost like there is a band of output that just doesnt line up with everything else.. really annoying and weird looking - total deal breaker, makes it unplayable

been playing witcher 2 and it looks like pure awesome.. same with the BF3 beta...

i dont get it, id.. oh how the mighty have fallen

Well at least they're fixing it, hopefully at some point it will actually meet the original (reasonable) expectations people had for it. Though first impressions mean a lot, so they'd have to do a lot to fix its tarnished reputation in the minds of gamers.

I wouldn't mind picking this up in a GotY edition for ~$40 in a years time.

Rage the ugly duckling.

Again and again and again. Wait to buy games, you will be much better off.

Quit impatiently supporting games 85% done.

On the other side, what is the mod community shaping up like to transform RAGE? Doom3 is an amazing swan now.

Dude, its a new engine. Of course they are going to have to figure things out as they go. But anything released after wards should be golden. Texture issues aside, this is still a great game. I loved every min of it. Going to go through it again on Nightmare mode.

I was more disappointed with Carmack's flippant attitude towards the PC version than I was by any of the negative reviews RAGE got. The technical issues will eventually be worked out, but John's view of the PC market, when he is one of the virtual pioneers of PC gaming, is disheartening.

Sure, I expect that anyone would want to make a console version of their game because they invariably sell the best, but his unprofessional attitude towards the PC gaming market is so dismissive that he has a lot of us long time PC gamers wondering if he, the father of the FPS, is even relevant to us any longer.

the texture "pop-in" is horrific. I'm somewhat surprised that Carmack allowed the game to ship with that level of visual issues.

What kills me is we are losing the pillars of great 3d visuals.

To me the first two in 3d after frame rate were and really still are:

Texture clarity
AA

AA's been under attack for a while, I like how many years ago we'd have nearly free 4xAA and that is all I ever needed. No we have these new methods, they aren't as clean and most clobber frames.

And Now blurry textures.

If you're using the recommended beta drivers make sure you go into "Program settings" under "Manage 3D settings", not just "Global settings". In Program Settings uncheck "show only programs found on the computer" and you'll see two Rage entries. Change them both to Use Global Setting under vertical sync and the tearing will stop if you have vsync "on" in the game. I know it's retarded they didn't catch this in beta testing the driver, but what can you do.

The game is already 20gigs, I can't imagine what a texture patch would come in at.

If they're just tweaking a graphic setting then I don't think it'll really fix anything, as long as your not standing around looking at textures on paint cans then it's not that big of a problem.

I'm pretty sure that with regards to vsync you want to either enable it through your game or through the graphics control panel, not both.

rageConfig.cfg goes in your Steam\steamapps\common\rage\base

seta r_swapInterval 1 //VSYNC 1 enabled, 0 diabled

that's the optoin to enable vsync.

sucks that you can't free roam after finishing it but when you go back into areas that aren't part of your mission they're completely void of enemies to kill.
