What settings are you using in game?? I can see the whole wet objects thing in your pictures. I have all that stuff on and I don't see that on my machine. Aparently 3 way is worth it for this game.....wonder if 3 way 260s or SLI 9800GX2s would do it...
GUH, seing all those artifacts makes me crazy. BACK TO THE GAME!
I read the PDA when i wait for respawns in the wild territory. I hide in the truck's back (the one by the levelchanger to the bar) and read while i listen to monster grunts.
Having trouble? Are you stuck? Or do you just want to know everything about it? Here are Dawnrazor's Guides to SoC and CoP!:
