    Yep as I said GPU usage is high for me, so there's no way I'll get 60fps when they patch it. I wouldn't call it a good looking game, so I'm not sure why it's hitting the GPU so hard at 30fps.

    Shoddy port aside I'm really enjoying the game. In an age that is very PC (not computers lol) it's a very brave subject to have racism in the game.

    You are very welcome :dave:

    No easily mistaken really, no clue why I had it disabled in the 1st place.

    This is not a problem. Don't know why people make such a huge issue about a 30fps cap. Your eyes can't see past 30fps anyway.

    If that's the case, then, you don't need that graphics card either. GTX970 would be more than enough for 30fps gaming.

    Where are all the posts stating that you don't need over 30fps anyway since the human eye cannot see more than 30fps......:stewpid:

    Wrong.

    Consoles provide 30 FPS optimal experience to give some margin for "superhuman" sight.

    If you are on the States your maximum human capacity stops right at 29.97 FPS.

    If you cross to Europe it will fall to 23.976 FPS during the flight.

    There are also "cheaters" who buy 144Hz monitors.They get an upgraded sight limit to 144 FPS after they pay the monitors.

    LOL

    Very interesting this subject popped up today as I downloaded Forza 6: Apex from WS last night.I'm on the backup monitor (AOC 1280x1024 @75) again waiting for the Asus VG248QE.

    The in-game options give display res @ 1680x1050.Unlocked graphic options at max, aa inluded.I can't see any difference between their "60fps+vsync" and "30fps+vsync" except the heat exiting my case.

    So I think it comes down to the game engine really.

    You guys aren't, surprised, now are ya? This is going to keep happening until it becomes a mainstream decision to cap ALL games to better compare the PC gaming community to the consoles. Why devs want the "same gaming experience across all platforms" is beyond ridiculous to me. I didn't invest in all this horsepower & triple monitor setups to play at that refresh rate. I"m not alone, but I feel that they just keep pushing it & eventually it'll become a normal thing. I hope not, but what else is there to think??

    And this is why I stopped pre-ordering games long ago. There is always some type of crap accompanying new releases.

    The statement they made put it all in perspective: "...The team has been hard at work ensuring that Mafia III’s performance is consistent across all platforms..." This same experience across all platforms needs to stop. OS wise it may make sense to a point but it does not translate to anything beyond that. This attitude could be tolerated if consoles were still like the initial ones were; better graphics and gameplay for a fraction of the cost of the pc hardware needed to achieve the same results. It has not been like that for years upon years upon years. Enough of this imbecilic "we cannot make anyone feel bad" attitude. This whole kumbaya ****e needs to end. It defeats the whole incentive to save up for the best one can get within their means. There is always going to be those that can afford more no matter where on the ladder one is.

    Why is there even mention of options for 30 and 60. The only option that should be is unlimited, period. They still do not understand...idiots.

    I pre-ordered the deluxe edition , installed the game, played for less than 10 seconds and closed the game. Not touching this crap. 2017 is around the corner and a game this big is released with 30 FPS cap and the developer didn't know about it !!!!!!

    I am seriously thinking about a refund .. but I will end up buying it again when it's fixed... But this really sucks .. what's wrong with all the crap PC releases lately ?!

    All I can say is that if the game played as good as that video shows, I'd be perfectly satisfied.

    Submitted a refund ... Not playing this crap. It's better to have my 80$ back in my pocket and wait for it to be properly fixed than having my money with *******s.

    Do you know what f**king makes me laugh? the (few) members on here saying that the human eye can't see the difference between 30 and 60 FPS. SERIOUSLY?! You guys need to go to Specsavers.

    Next you'll be telling me that 1080p is all that people need (no, it's really not).

    People that say the human eye can't possibly see more than 24/30 fps are correct but there's a massive caveat to that.

    The eye can't see individual frames beyond 30 fps but the brain can still detect a difference between 30-60, 60-120/144.

    Anyone who has gamed at 144Hz with 120+ fps can't see the "frames" but can feel the sensation higher frame rates produce.

    So it has nothing to do with actual fps and more to do with smoothness 60/120/144 creates.

    If you played a game at 144Hz with matching fps and then switched that same game down to a locked 30fps and couldn't feel any difference then you are either a liar or just need your eyes testing.

    I love those "The human eye can't" comments.
    It strikes me with immense pride to read the comments of the scientifically acclaimed professors whom went through 6 years of med school with those few more years of internship to become doctors.
    Not to mention their most exciting journey and extensive scientific research to receive their professorship and academical acknowledgment of their research on the limits of the human eye.
    I wish i had the ability to go through these years of hard work and learning experiences and be just as them.

    However...
    Some of us do get lucky to be born genius, and my friends, i was blessed:
    *he reaches to his keyboard and googles 'test ufo dot com', he would link but he does not posses the points*
    Can you spot the difference with thou human eye?

    I acknowledge i only put in like 0.00000000000658% of the work of the other acclaimed professors, but should i be deprived of a Nobel Prize because my lactating of genius was acquired via natural selection? that is the real burning question of the day.
