With today’s launch Callisto protocolThere is a consensus across the gaming media that this PS5 is decent dead spaceSimilar, but awesome PC game. The reason is that the game stutters dismally, even on high-end hardware. I’m here to tell you that it isn’t You have to stutter, but you need to turn out some of the bells and whistles.

This morning, Rock Paper Gun He said It can be a fun game “if it is played on PC,” Eurogamer suggested it “PC is almost unplayable”, while computer games invited him “The stuttering nightmare”. This is all reflected by Callisto protocol‘s Steam pagewhich currently has the game title Deadly Orange “Mostly Negative”, based on over 4,000 player reviews.

The problem, other than anyone’s specific complaints about the game itself, is that it runs like utter garbage when you run it at settings your PC should happily support.

Callisto protocol It launched on PC today with some pretty hefty spec requirements to see it perform at its peak. While it claims to be able to run on graphics cards as low as GeForce 1060 or Radeon RX 580, When you reach the topIt’s eye watering. For what you oddly call “Max” settings (although there is a level higher than that), it asks for a Radeon RX 6700XT or GeForce RTX 2070, running on either a Ryzen 7 2700X or i7-9700. For the over-the-top “Ultra” level, he suggests a Ryzen 9 3900X or i9-9900K platform, with either a Radeon RX 6900XT or a GeForce RTX 3080. People who can match those requirements don’t seem to be getting the performance they bargained for.

My PC, an increasingly modest Ryzen 5 5600X meets a GeForce RTX 3070, comfortably Recommended game specs From a Ryzen 5 3600 and a GTX 1070, which would make me assume I should be able to enjoy some fancier options. For example, I would expect a bit of ray tracing action to be available, and to be able to go beyond “average” in the default settings. Hey, my computer has almost reached “Max” – not an unreasonable situation!

But bloody hell, no. If I turn on any amount of ray tracing, or set the core spec to high, the game runs at a unstable 12fps. It’s laughably bad, and it’s pretty easy to see why people are instantly pissed off about $60.

The good news is that I’m sure anyone who meets those recommended specs will Being able to run the game, if they are willing to make some honest sacrifices.

Now, I must absolutely stress that the days of PC launch are Always A bunch of rage, given the near-endless permutations of PCs, there’s always going to be a whole lot of gamers bumping into an untested developer setup. So, I have no way of ascertaining if my (fairly generic) machine might just get lucky here, but I don’t think so. Most importantly, I have no way of knowing if it is for you The setting is one that will malfunction until the patches are eliminated. That all being said, try this:

On the main menu (and note: you can’t access most of the options while playing), select Options, then Graphics. At the bottom of the list is Run Benchmark, which will test the game against your computer. She told me, no matter how much better she should have performed, she recommended “enable FSR2 performance mode.” Again, it’s Options – Graphics, then Advanced. There, at the top of the list, is “leveling up”. Mine is set to “Temporal”, which I assume prevents the game from time traveling. However, this should be changed, to “AMD FSR 2.”

Then, I can change the next setting, “FSR Quality Mode 2,” from the exhilarating “Quality” to the more depressing “Performance.”

After that was done, the game changed. I’m now able to play it at a very stable 60fps, sometimes dipping to 45 for a few choppy seconds when entering a new area, but then as fast as 60fps.

Honestly, it still looks great. I mean, if you like grim, dirty spaceships strewn with mutant corpses and guts. I didn’t really realize what I was missing, though I would expect it to be better reflections in the pools of human blood, and perhaps more hairs on the bumpy faces of the ship’s frantic crew.

Having said that, no, of course that’s not good enough. Either the specs were wildly inaccurate, or the game is in desperate need of a significant amount of patching. Which is always frustrating especially when there is a PS5 version, which works without any of these issues.

We’ve reached out to publishers Krafton to ask when we can expect a patch.
