contrary to many might say, i love this game, love everything about it, the visuals, the physics, and i can really feel the speed with them fast cars here.. maybe because it felt nostalgic, the visuals reminds me of gran turismo 2..

Guys i've tried to run this game before, not sure about the settings, and it used to crash as soon as the first cutscene end. Can i run this at lowest settings with lowest possible resolution and what fps? :)

I don't know why, but often the frames go under 40 and it laggs…
Look at my specs… I can even play Crysis 2 with DirectX 11 patch and HD Textures on tweaked ultra… My CPU is 86% better than recommended and GPU 82%…


I tried even lowering from High on FullHD with 4xAA to all Medium on 1680x1050 without AA. No changes. Still framedrops…

I looked up the utilization of my PC with MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner:


GPU: max. 35%, normally 25-30%
GPU-Mem: -16% : -500MB of 3GB
CPU: max. 45%, normally 30-35% at only 4 from 8 cores, the others in Idle


So why the hell does this lag sometimes?? :(?
