• Why can't I run BioShock on at least medium graphics?
    42 replies, posted
Whenever I try to run BioShock on anything except low, it lags. A lot. I can run TF2 fine on high, but for some reason BioShock won't. Does anyone else have this problem?
Specs?
Maybe your computer is shit. It would be nice if you at least included your specs. "Hey guys my car won't go 100MPH but it can reach 60MPH. Does anyone else have this problem?"
Spex or no sex
lol sorry good point Intel Pentium 4 1.5 gigs of ram nvidia geforce 8400 shitty computer lawl
TF2 on high? Well, that sure gives us an accurate measure of your computer specs now, doesn't it? [editline]01:10PM[/editline] Oh, hai there.
coz your pc is old
[QUOTE=dustbusta;16048543]shitty computer lawl[/QUOTE] I don't understand. You seem to already know your problem.
i'm just wondering why it's the only game i have a problem with.
I don't know.. He should be able to run it Medium settings I think.. I have a friend who runs it medium with a worse graphics card. But he has more ram.. Edit: Oh yeah you could go ahead and check your results at canyourunit.com, since that'll give you an idea at what you're lacking in some places. It might or might no help answer your question.

[QUOTE=dustbusta;16048543]lol sorry good point Intel Pentium 4 1.5 gigs of ram nvidia geforce 8400 shitty computer lawl[/QUOTE] What kind of Pentium 4 and how fast What kind of RAM If that's PCI-e get an 8600 at LEAST, the 8400 is terribad.

get the pixel shader 2.0 patch
It's all in the RAM baby. I use: Intel Pentium 4 OC'ed 3.10 3.0 2.50GB Ram NVIDIA 7800 GS 256MB VRAM Windows XP My computer is worse than yours, technically. But I can run bioshock on high.
I recently bought this on steam, my comp is insanly powerful, i cant even run it on low, its an Nvidia driver issue, revert back to 182 and problem solved.
I had this too and the game recommended I run it on medium. Not like it matters I played it all the way through and ignored.

You have a much better graphics card. 8400=complete shit low end 8 series 7800= high end 7 series 7800>>>>>>8400 People really need to learn that higher number does not equal better.
[QUOTE=dustbusta;16048543]lol sorry good point Intel Pentium 4 1.5 gigs of ram nvidia geforce 8400 shitty computer lawl[/QUOTE] Just a wild guess here, but not enough RAM?

My friend kept saying his 8400 was tons better then my old 7800. I tried explaining but he didn't listen...
[QUOTE=dark_console;16051607]I recently bought this on steam, my comp is insanly powerful, i cant even run it on low, its an Nvidia driver issue, revert back to 182 and problem solved.[/QUOTE] specs of your so called insanely powerful computer?

People need to accept the fact that when they are wrong, they are wrong. It's so annoying and it just makes you look like a dumbass trying to "be right" all the time :downs:
So where does that put my geforce gtx 260? better or worse than the 9800 GTX+? Looked into it properly and decided that this card was better. Edit: I see you all have faulty sarcasm detectors there.
Gtx 260>9800 gtx+
[QUOTE=Yumyumbublegum;16057543]Gtx 260>9800 gtx+[/QUOTE] I dunno I've seen some benchmarks that show it's pretty close. It might have been a 9800GTX in sli though. See: [url]http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3334&p=11[/url] Yeah, I think the GX2 implies dual video cards, or something.
What resolution do you run TF2 at?
[QUOTE=Yumyumbublegum;16057543]Gtx 260>9800 gtx+[/QUOTE]only marginally
