PC Rage players may need driver update

Written by David Stellmack


id working to resolve tearing & texture issues
Continued reports of PC users having problems with the PC version of RAGE continue to fill our inbox. Apparently, players are experiencing a variety of issues, but most of them seem to center on tearing and texture graphics issues that apparently can be fixed with driver updates.

id Software is working with both AMD and Nvidia to isolate and resolve the driver issues so that the companies can get new drivers out that resolve the issues. AMD users should update to the latest RAGE Catalyst driver, while Nvidia users should update to the latest RAGE beta driver.

In addition, id Software is apparently also working on an update that will allow users to better manage the configuration of their graphics card much more easily than is currently available. No news on when this patch might become available, but you can watch the Bethblog for additional release info.

Seems in the game industry now, 60-70% done = Release Ready. Whatever happened to releasing a finished, tested, quality product ?

Has never happened. Software is never 'perfect' or anywhere near that.

Can you give any valid example?

You just have to remember, this isn't a 2D game with no physics engine, advanced gfx like ray tracing, AI, etc. There's 1000x more content/features from a game just ~10 years ago. More problems are bound to arise due to its complexity.

Looking at it from hindsight there are most likely less % bugs per lines of code then there were 10 years ago, but due to the game's size, they are more noticeable.

I never said anything about perfect software, I commented on the growing and accepted trend in the gaming industry where it has become commonplace for an incomplete and very buggy product to be released to the public, only to have a slew of patches follow. From the HUD, to game continuity, to graphics. Almost every release in the last few years is guilty in some way.

i don't see how drivers are going to fix an engine bug where dynamic lod is concerned.

They couldn't have given this game a better name. Because what pc gamers are feeling is pure "rage", now is that irony or what?? :D .
Pc gamers always get the short straw, no wonder so many people pirate games.

AMD user use catalyst 11.10 preview 2+config file , google a little , game runs great, i came near the end of game, then decided to go from start on hard, cuz i have no more texture problems or flashing NPCs or rest of errors like CTD , and to be honest normal is way too easy.

No probs here. Updated to preview driver 11.10 v2 and went from 25-30 fps to solid 60 fps. Only one GPU being used still but looks great.Running on x-fired 5970's (ie 4 GPUS). Max settings at 1080p and smooth on 1 GPU. Wonder if additional graphic settings will appear in due course - more DX11 options? Only bug i've found is if you 'window' the game (eg to go to email / desktop) then back to game (fullscreen) it resets v-sync to off.

@trancer23 Crossfire support will be in few days if its correct what i read on web.

DX11 is not possible since game uses opengl and not directx.
More gfx options wont bring better GFX if you use config file...

Try this one: http://www.mediafire.com/file/1r35ni...Rageconfig.cfg

Copy config to: valve\steam\ste amapps\common\r age\base

This config is for 1.5 Gb Vram (or more) GFX cards, so you will have maxed settings.
