I think (from my expirience) 25 FPS but that realy is the minimum because with eye you can see a bit lag from 22 FPS and down.

ok thats really weird and ive never seen that when i played the game, i think these are called "artifacts" and u see them in most games when u overclock ur GPU too much, or maybe cuz the grass/plants always had these black backgrounds behind them but u only notice it in the light and not the dark cuz it blends in

thats the only thing that causes seeing artifacts in games, but it seems like a lot of other people are having this problem so the problem is in the game, but on my system which is similar to urs, i never saw these and the game looked beautiful, also they might've patched it, so update the game if u haven't already

Me too, I just like the feeling of popping the disk out of the box and into my DVD tray. Also the smell of the box and manual is also nice :D
Plus when I bought the DVD for this game, they also included Alan's journal and stickers! Well worth it.

Can you create ISO file from DVD. Try using poweriso. But i dont think this will work. Install poweriso then insert DVD into your PC then right click your DVD drive and there you will see poweriso label move your mouse there and click add to image file then choose iso and choose where to save and click ok. Next moune that iso you created and see if its working.
