Gears of war Problems

hi i got Gears of war for pc today and i have a pretty decent pc but the frame rate slows down alot

My spec is:

Windows xp media cener 32Bit

windows vista ultimate 32bit

CPU Intel Quad core Q6600 2.40GHZ

GEIL BLACK DRAGON GAMING SERIES DDR2 4 x 1GB 1066mMHZ

Asus P5K Deluxe 775 DDR2 P35 motherboard

nVidia GeForce 8800 ULTRA 768MB GDDR3
 
is it all patched up?

i have the same cpu and 4gb ram and a 7900gs and it stutters a little at the start of areas etc. but for the most part its not too noticeable.

what drivers you using
 
I had a dodgy 8800 ultra, check if it stutters in other games, half life 2 loast coast is the best example of this...

what resolution are you playing at, on that system 1680*1050 Max settings DX10 and No AA is the highest i'd push it... should play fine with a few rand slow down scenes...

I see, I thought it used to say 'Banned' when someone was banned, unless I'm imagining things...

Sorry to resurect a dead thread BUT

Put in GOW today to play it once over again (very fun game) and to my complete and ecstatic suprise a new patch has been released (3rd March). The game should prompt you to install it via x-live.

Anyways the new patch COMPLETELY fixed any issues i had (stuttering mainly). Game is now 100% silky smooth 99% (except for the loading etc but not nearly as bad as it was). The game was tops before (most of the time) but now it runs like a dream all the time.

I thought I would give Gears a few goes online only to be greated with an update I cant install. Every time I go to install the patch it comes up with this:

old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match.


Does anyone know how to get round this.

Sorry might be a silly question. But have you tried downloading it (from the website at http://gearsofwar.com/GearsPC ) and installing it manually.

ALSO have you got the NoDVD crack? If so i'd recommend that you copy the original exe over.

Otherwise check this thread out. http://gearsforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=604485. Hopefully it will help.
