I have a question:
Does T3 have higher hardware requirements?
I was able to run Trine 2 at max settings at stable 60fps in 3D (120fps in total) but I can only get 40-60fps in Trine 3 on GTX760. CPU is 2500K overclocked to 4,3GHz with all the energy saving features disabled.
- changing the drivers to the newest ones
- OC the GPU (surprisingly, 58fps didn't change into 60fps, seems strange, since my GPU was at least 5% faster)
- changing the cap/lag reduction/triple buffering settings
I finally gave up, changed the setting to medium. And this is when I got really worried. The game with medium settings doesn't look as good as T2 at max settings which runs well, at stable 60fps in 3D.
Trine 3 drops not only to 5x fps but even to 4x fps, so even switching to the painfully flickery 100hz mode (50Hz per eye) won't help me.
I don't want to play any side-scrolling game with anything less than 60fps and everybody who has a monitor/TV with low persistence agrees with me on it - when you see a game at true 60fps without any (ANY!) blur whatsoever, you don't want to go back. And the difference between 57fps and 60fps is huge, believe me.
I wonder if I should stop playing the early acccess game and hope for the optimisations, or there is no chance for improvements. I'm afraid it might be improved but for the newest cards. That's what Nvidia does, I'm afraid - it doesn't care about the owners of the cards that are not being sold anymore.
I don't really care about postprocess effects (to be honest I prefer my games with all postprocess switched off), but I'd like to have the full geometry and texture quality.edit:
Was your advice for me? If so, I turned AA off in nvidia panel, in game launcher and then even by manually switching it to 0 in game .ini file (although 1 means off from what I understand, but I tried both). Still drops below 50fps in some places (I only played first level) on medium settings.edit 2:
Manually disabling glow in .ini file, and setting the game to either 900p or 1080p but 50Hz (100Hz in 3D) allowed to maintain stable framerate 99% of the time (there are drops here and there, but mostly it holds 50fps). I also disabled 3D for a quick test - rare drops to 88fps, mostly over 90fps and some places where it holds 120fps at 1080p with everything max, disabled AA and manually disabled glow. I guess that's it for my gtx760. If I want more, I have to upgrade my GPU (too bad it's not happening in the next year, but it's not bad as it is now, after this tweaking.
