update helped a bit, gained a few more fps with physx on. its very playable now
i don't get more fps but the game it's much smoother now....
They updated the physx installer in the "3rd" folder.
No difference at all with both PhysX and game updates.
actually it runs much much better ingame then in benchmark,..
i've just played a bit and got avg 50-55fps sometimes small dips to mid 45s, lowest was 36fps in house while staring out of the window (one particular spot) otherwise same 50-60fps.
Thats all maxed, apex high (Vito cloth), except medium shadows., lol not bad for single gpu and it ran smooth even in fire fights as here on pic
What a short demo, hardly finish the one mission which was kinda meh and I was in a hurry to get it out the way to see what more there is and it was over.
Liked the demo but who's decision was it to put a damn stupid timer for exploration when most areas are restricted off. The only thing that kind of annoyed me was the lip sync. Words coming out doesn't seem to match the mouth animations. Other than that, I'm getting this game on launch day.
Honestly the PhysX effects are so lame for such a high performance cost. Cryoastasis had a similar performance problem but at least the PhysX effects were top notch and the best I've seen.
Mafia II has to be the biggest letdown this year. Oh my god I still can't believe it...
this apparently gets rid of the timer( i havnt checked it yet, will in 5 mins )

I noticed that as well.
I ran the benchmark (after the update, and deleting the Cloths folder) and it said my FPS were at 35.
But with FRAPs running, in game it never dropped under 50. Pretty flawed benchmark.
Wonder how many people cancelled a pre-order, or decided not to buy this game based on the demo with the PhysX running poorly, and the benchmark giving far lower FPS than what you really get
Its great the PhysX issue has been lessened, but how many people just looked at the benchmark score and thought "feck this"
I did without a doubt. I refuse to play this **** on my GTX 470s.
Your posts came to mind when i posted that.
I've been fairly ok with my results, but i have lower expectations obviously.
You tryed it in single GPU, with the second card as a PPU, not like the game is particularly hard to render for a single GTX470, it certainly isn't for my 460.
Latest update broke the no timer patch.
I really don't see the point in having the timer if you are going to restrict the player to a small area anyway.
Wow, I'm surprised at the performance complaints, especially from guys with SLI setups. This game runs flawlessly for me in-game, with no stutters or hitches, and my PhysX card is being used all the time - something I can't say for other PhysX enhanced titles (have seen up to 60% usage). This has to be the most seamless implementation of PhysX in any game.
I was interested in this game from a tech point of view, but having played it, I'm now sold. I'm impressed with the level of quality and detail - the game just feels very well made.
Hell, the demo made me want the game.
But I can't afford it right now, having already pre-ordered Kane and Lynch 2, Fallout: New Vegas and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
Still works fine..
Honestly though, did Mafia have Physx? ..No, so just set it to off and enjoy "The Game".
This is only a demo and already the judgment, because of some frivolous effects.
As for my POV, I'm enjoying it, exactly what I've expected and couldn't ask for it to run better.
hex edit works for me after the latest update
Fun demo. Similar to GTA imo. The camera is a bit icky but the models are just fantastic. And no major problems for me. I installed the latest Physx before the Steam update.
Max settings, no AA, no Physx
Max settings, AA, Medium Physx
Same. I've played the demo for 8 hours. I can't @$$%ing wait, baby. The only one upset is Wanny because the physx effects aren't amazing like they were in only one game that I can ever recall; plus performance is lowish on high physx.
