you can try this fix for win7/vista; but it didnt work as it should here..

all you need to do is either add/replace this line above/below your Fear "InGameRenderer=D3D9" entries in the "xfire_games.ini" in C:\Program Files\xfire.


So here's what all the entries should look like...

Code:

there's a bandwith issue with Direct Input and the JupiterEX Engine (F.E.A.R., and Condemned: Criminal Origins), and I use a Logitech G5 Mouse, and it's affected by this problem.. So yes, by disabling direct input hooks that XFire does, we ignore the Direct Input bandwith bottleneck issue, thus not crippling ingame framerates!



For users with Logitech G series Mice and Keyboards that suffer framerate issues? you may want to do this HID Driver fix too, cause it's known to cause framerate issues ingame due to the Direct Input bottleneck on the JupiterEX Engine (as I stated above, lol). To do it you must disable all "HID-Compliant Device" drivers with "046D" in the the HardwareID. Sadly, this makes Logitech's SetPoint Program totally useless.. but at least keeps your FEAR framerates up eh?

Here's Manual Instructions for that fix:

* Go into Device Manager (Start > Control Pannel > System > Hardware (tab) > Device Manager)
* Hit the Plus (+) sign beside "Human Interface Devices"
* Right-Click on the first "HID-Compliant Device" in the list and select "Properties"
* Click on the "Details" tab
* Open the drop-down list and select "HardwareID" from that list
* Check if it has "046D" in the HardwareID.. usually looks like "HID\VID_046D&PID" for where it would have it
* If it has the "046D" in the HardwareID, close the properties menu and select that "HID-Compliant Device" and Right-Click on it and select "Disable"
* You may need to check serveral "HID-Compliant Device" drivers, for me it was two of them, the 2nd and 3rd in my list
