    Go to www.seriouszone.com
    They are the best place to look for Serious Sam maps, mods and news.

    Also, I wouldn't worry too much about what the upcoming DLC could/would be. Croteam are extremely active in their fourms and really take the fanbase's suggestions to heart.

    Much like Remedy did with the PC release of Alan Wake, all of Serious Sam 3's testing was done by members of the forums. Fans. :)

    Yeah, it's a really lame joke.
    Specially since Devolver and Croteam said a few weeks ago that they would announced DLC news for Sam3 in the coming weeks.

    And Croteam have never jumped on the "April Fools" bandwagon in the past.

    This game needs a engine rewrite, I was very disappointed when i saw what's going on. Its mostly single threaded game with few multi core bits here and there..
    I checked via logitech G15 lcd and when fps drops occur (30-35fps) gpu usage drops to 50-60%, but the funny thing is cpu usage stays the same no matter what (1 core 80%, other 3 20-30%) >_<


    This new patch before DLC didnt do anything, even though they mentioned improved multi core support, yeah sure :bang:

    I hope next patch does a better job.

    If you bang every single setting to max it will run like crap, what do you expect?

    even if i turn it on low it stutters like crazy. i tried it with a single 480 and 480 sli, and 460 sli. runs like poo. one 480 and i can barely get 40-60 fps. 460 sli it drops below 60 fps but yet gpu usage doesn't go up, it stays at 60-70 % a lot of the time. i have given up. it's unplayabl;e for me.

    my computer's no souch it should run this DX9 game a lot better imo.

    I don't know why you are having so many issues. It runs perfectly fine for me.

    I don't know if they fixed it because I haven't played in a while but what worked for me is to set both the CPU and GPU performance to custom and then from the custom menu set everything to max.

    If low 35-40fps drops is fine for you then ok. Its not for me and i bet Burnt_Ram would agree.


    75fps on average (using 75fps cap) then boom sudden 35-40fps drops kills the mood really quickly.. I bet that's why its so empty online :(

    Best single GPU card to date being the best single CPU card to date for a game... DERP :nerd:

    Did not expect that :p


    Parallax mapping is still the nr1 gfx thing that sticks out for me in this game. Never seen it done so good as in these specific floor tiles:
