    Wow , i am getting awful FPS in the Kane and Lynch 2 demo with all the settings turned up with a res 1680-1050 (20-25 FPS) and with all the settings turned off i get (80-110 FPS)
    I get around 60 FPS in Starcraft 2 with all the settings at full.

    Any suggestions ? I am using 10.7

    When i turn CAT AI off windows crashes, actually all my games crash when i turn CAT AI off (Never happed before)

    Did you install the app profile, also most likey ati doesnt have a CF profile for the game yet. Then it could be demo related bug and may not be there in the final retail release.

    Going to give the demo a spin, using 10.5a. Might be able to rename the .exe to force crossfire.

    The framerate in the Kane & Lynch 2 demo is worst with CrossFireX (40 - 60 fps) than it is on just one card (constant 60 fps) on my system but this is typical of ATI drivers so it wasn't completely unexpected. I've reported the issue to ATI so hopefully they'll add full support for the retail game in the 10.8 WHQL drivers as it isn't released until 20th August here in the UK. (Alternatively, ATI may just decided to disable CrossFireX support altogether as they've been doing with an alarming number of recent titles...)

    FPS all over the place but not too bad (40-60 vsynced). 1920x1200 4x aa and 16x af.

    But just a crap console port, the FOV is ridiculously low feels zoomed in and so obviously meant to play on the sofa a few metres away from screen. Up close makes me dizzy.

    Black borders on 16:10 screen.

    Mouse sensitivity sucks, on lowest it is bearable but when aiming it is too slow. Do one notch faster and 3rd person is too fast. Also mouse acceleration on and no option to disable.

    designed for 120dpi mouse? sigh.

    No command to chat in multiplayer or option to disable morons on VOIP/ kick in loby.

    Uninstall.

    I've had the game crash twice on me, once during a campaign run through and the second time when I was waiting for the multiplayer lobby to appear.
