PC Owners Complain Of RAGE Texture Problems

TSA: "It looks like it’s not only the PS3 and Xbox versions of RAGE that have texture problems." (PC, Rage)

stupid id cant do anything right
ATi_Elite  +   1117d ago
They made Doom and Quake....doesn't get any righter than that!!

Help is on the way and it's called a Patch and id is making one right now so don't slit your throat just yet!! Besides this gives you time to go buy the game instead of just flaiming about it!!

I believe as much as you ATi!!!!

Now, to someone that doesn't know much about ID, this is how you sound. You shouldn't be "flaming" others for "flaming" someone else that rightfully bought it.

ID will fix this, I'm sure. Sit tight and be patient, it's only been a day or two since release.

*edit* On a side note though, I'm luckily not having any texture problems with my 560ti. I've been hearing it's mostly ATI problems though.

Do you think they will release a higher definition texture pack? That is what I would like to have.

Thats why I game on consoles, don't have to fuck with compatibility issues or tweek settings just to play a damn game.

That's not really a fair statement. Id fucked up..bad. This isn't a common thing in PC gaming. They destroyed any loyalty that PC gamers had toward them.

Hope the guy who made that advance graphic tool for Crysis 2 will make one for Rage.
ATi_Elite  +   1117d ago
or what about the Icenhancer Mod like the one for GTAIV?
yewles1  +   1117d ago
Why should mods have to fix this? It's Id's mess, let them clean it. Mods should be working on fun bonuses, not wind up making PR assists w/o even knowing it.
ATi_Elite  +   1117d ago
A mod to enhance the graphics not fix the graphics. Of course id will fix their issues!

its an amd issue mostly, which they fixed with a new driver a few hours ago. Its still not perfect, but before the update the texture popin was the worse I had ever seen lol. And for screen tearing, forcing vsync and opengl triple buffering works great. Im not sure how the graphics compare from console to pc, but playing with a gamepad is incredible awkward since the game is so fast paced and smooth. I actually had a gamepad for the driving and mouse and keyboard for shooting to be 100% honest.

This is why when I play PC games, I start with the oldest first and work my way up to the new releases, unless it's a multiplayer-centric game. It's usually better to let PC games set for awhile to allow time for patches and mods to be created.

friends don't let friends use ati or play on consoles!

Everyone I know with a pc is loving rage in true 1920x1080p at 16x anti aliasing! It loooks at least 1 if not 2 genrations ahead of the console version!

Everyone I know with a console is playing the inferior, sub-hd, jaggie covered, pop-in riddled port and it is NOT 60 frames all the time on console like it is on an nvidia equiped pc! Not to mention the graphical assests are SEVERELY gimped on console, the pc version utterly decimates the console version, like every multiplat game!


I use 16x anti

4x anti is trash....it barely hides the jaggies in fine lines, 4x is not even an option as far as I am concerened, 8x is the least i would use in a game that is dx11 and super demanding......... rage runs so easy, it does nothing to my i-7, i could run two concurrent games of rage at 60 frames, this game is mediocre at best.....sure it looks better on pc than any console game ever made, but it is nothing in the relam of pc gaming!

dont know which rage comparisons youve seen
Sobari  +   1117d ago
No one uses 16x AA at that resolution. 4x is the max you should use at 1080p.
Letros  +   1117d ago
I use 16X...running at 60fps, why turn it down?
Sobari  +   1117d ago

The higher the resolution, the less AA is needed to nullify jaggies. 4x AA is usually the sweet spot for 1080p. For resolutions around 1200 and beyond, you'll only need 2x AA or less.

This game is running fine for me using a gtx 570. I got it at 16Xanti aliasing and (gpu something) enabled, but I cant get rid of the screen tearing no matter what the setting. I read somewhere that we should roll back the nividia battlefield beta drivers but I haven't tried that yet.

force V-sync in the nvidia control panel under global settings and it will lock the framerate to your monitors refresh rate!

Hey guys just trying to help out. I updated my driver to this newest one that was just released a couple hrs ago and it made mine worse. To fix it: Rolled my driver back to 11.9 and its fine now.

Also for me Rage was randomly crashing to desktop and often and i finally figured it out as well. I have Win7 32bit 4gigs RAM. The fix: Enable the 3GiG switch= just look it up if your having CTD issues now mine never crashes. Dont forget to switch it back when not needed.


I hope this helps someone having similar problems as i did cus it was extemely frustrating when all i wanted to do was play lol. Id switch it back one id or amd find a better solution. As far as what 3gig swtch does? Im not sure really but i had to do this with The Witcher 2 when it first released. It be a good idea to keep the link to that page so that you can always refer back to it. It wont hurt to try this if your having this problem as you can always switch it back.

soon as i heard this game was developed around consoles i lost intrest.
HAF912  +   1117d ago
same. no issues b/c i didnt buy a buggy console port. only fools bought this game.
rattletop  +   1117d ago
the way carmack was talking in interviews i thought he and his team were going to make a proper PC version of the game. but it's just like most of the other studios' port. Also the reviews all say it's just another wasteland shooter with RPG elements with a mediocre story. must have must put in effort for the concept and storyline. rage looks like demo for tech5 engine.
kcuthbertson  +   1116d ago
The thing is, it's not like other studio's ports...it's worse. MUCH worse. I'm seriously very dissapointed.

Here's what I did to solve RAGE texture problems:


The guide can be applied to both AMD and Nvidia cards.
