I just upgraded my video card to this awesome Radeon 290x and I am getting worse FPS than I did with my gtx 660 ti I had. I am not sure if this was because of the new patch between the time I waited to play the game with the new card or not. However, It could be PATCH 5 is just a very laggy issue. My screen name is Geezus on steam, and I posted this. I brought every DLC and the blood patch, and I attempt to run the game on high and I get serious lag when zoomed into battle.
My RIG setup
Video card = Radeon r9 290x, 4gig 512bit.
Processor = Int I5-3570k CPU CLocked at 4.2 HZ
RAM = 16 gig
Motherboard = Assrock z77.
Not sure what I am doing wrong here, but I am getting some really bad lag and when I switch between graphics I get serious black squares on the map. I reformatted my computer, updated the AMD driver as the forum topics "PLEASE READ" says to do and the problem still exist.
Perhaps this has to do with EYEfinity? I have three screens and I run it at max resolution and even with settings set to high, and I have of course the armies set to max, I engage in 40x40 battles and my computer becomes a slideshow. I can run ANY ANY other games MAXED, full screen, no problem. Is this a game issue? Be great if I could get some feedback.
I truly love CA, and the wonderful games they offer and deliver. I am truly excited to get this game running and be able to play. I actually preorder the game before it even came out. Some feedback and help would be truly helpful. However, if this is the case for many players, I might just have to steer cleared of this game for a long time. I am one of those guys that like to EXPERIENCE the game that DEV meant the GAME to be experienced like.
