Hehe, that was pretty goofy. But it did disappoint me to not even see a bullet point about general optimization. I know it happens, as is confirmed every single week on the stream, but the fact that there isn't a single bullet point...

With the final update, and the retail "finished" game will all of the acheivments reset?

I'm totally OK with that happening, actually think it would be best if they all reset because after it's been tweaked for final release it's a different game at every level.

What do you guys think?

Played like 2 rounds of classic carma.
Was focusing on the bug i reported but are all gone now :-)

Oh and the games runs for the first supper smooth on all settings Best quality without tweaking the nvidia driver for alternative rendering. Dual GPU card.

They really did there best :-) Thanks a million.

one thing i miss, but gone try to mod it my self. If you slice a pet, you get a red round shape at each part. Would like to see guts, spline, bone stuff like that. Lets see if can change the textures of that. More MKX stile when you cut someone in two :D

Apparently performance "improvement" means less than half the fps you had before. Went from about 32 fps to 12 fps at the start of the first race. Also the detail/distance culling settings are missing and reinstalling did nothing to fix it. Anyone know where these settings are now? I can't find them and now re-increasing fps is impossible because of that.

Great update! From what i can see so far (played 10 freeplays) indeed alot of improvements. My overall fps went up by at least 10. I'm now getting 25-35 fps on Bleak City on max settings and a solid 45 fps at lowest.

I do find that the culling sliders should return though, as well as the advanced graphical settings that where there two or three updates ago; I think that could help squizing even more fps out of it.

Good job on this one!

I, for one, think there should be a full game reset so that everybody has to play it clean from the start tweaked and balanced. I think otherwise it would be unfair.

If you want to report bugs or want to ask for features DO NOT USE FORUM FOR THAT! Instead send it to developers HERE: https://carmageddon.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
