Has anybody played this game yet on Vista, I think it looks quite stunning, but its a little stuttery at times, has anyone played it on DX9 does it look as good or have the stuttering problems, the Nvidia drivers seem to be coming up to scratch finally. :)

I've played it on both Vista and XP. It runs smooth for me on either side. I did not really see a major difference between DX9 and DX10, of course, that could be becasue I was paying attention to playing the game. Either way it looked great!

One machine in my house has Vista and I've played on both. Surprisingly, the Vista machine has a 7800GT 256MB and it doesn't run too bad. My 8800GTS 640 on the XP machine obviously gets better framerates, though.

Running it on Vista right now at 1680x1050 all maxed (no AA) and it runs very well.

Maybe I should down my settings a little, I thought a Quad Core and Dual 8800 Ultra's would do the trick, maybe not :)

Running with that system, there must be something going wrong somewhere if you have to turn down the detail setting to play in Vista without framerate stuttering. Vista does, however, have some audio stuttering issues. It's all over the Bioshock forums, too.

Running a single 8800GTX, I haven't had any stutters, with video or sound. I have all settings maxxed, including AA, running @1680x1050.

Do you have all the visual effects on like realtime reflections etc, I figure that would give the cards some troubles, 16x AA may be a little excessive, I could make do with 8x I think

Just hit him repeatedly with the wrench, dont waste your health or ammo, just die and then respawn, theres no penalty for dieing so it takes a little while but you'll get there in the end

Armor piercing bullets take him out fairly quick without you dieing.

well it runs pretty smooth on XP with my HD2900 XT. I'm still trying to go through the game though.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
