From what I have gathered its the latest generation of video cards that seem to be most likely to be affected. I have a 9600 (nvidia) and it doesnt affect me either. The nvidia 200's and the ati 5000's seem to be the ones that it may appear.
Makes one wonder how many people were in the closed beta for this to have not been a big enough issue for them to have not fixed it already? Maybe they need to get a broader range of test PC's involved in closed testing.
Also, how hard would it be to implement the command permanently, so we dont have to put in at all?
This is really unforgivable at this point in the games development, considering how easy it would be to avoid without expecting the users to have to figure it out the hard way,....at the cost of expensive video cards.
My 9800gt seemed to be running warm going by the fan noise. I ran across this and decided to check mine and 0.00. so i set maxfps to 60 . now it is quieter so it must have done something . Would be nice for it to save the option or have a choice in the options so its permanent....
How can you see the fps you are currently running? I know its /showfps (or whatever) but where do I input it? I don't have the ~ (standard console command key) on my laptop keyboard (azerty), so i'm purty darn puzzled.
