Please post if you have any information regarding these. Audio levels in every other program lower when SR3 is running quote: "As soon as I enter a game, all other audio that is not saints row has it's sound levels reduced. This is rather annoying since I like to talk on ventrillo as I game." solution: None was posted, but i expect that this is the Windows 7 communications volume reduction in action. Open your sound properties, go to the "Communications" tab, and set the option to "Do nothing". I keep falling through the world or have missing pieces in game scenery solution: WorkingGames eventually discovered that installing his motherboard chipset drivers fixed it. If i had to speculate, i'd say that communication with the hard drive was slow or not working well, causing data not to stream in properly. But it's just speculation. Turning on video recording mode makes the engine and gunshots silent or quiet quote: "I turned on the Video Record option to capture the moment and my car engine turned silent and a large amount of gunshots were silent too. Is this a possible bug with the game or my PCs sound system (Logitech G35 Headset). As soon as I turned record off the sound went back to normal." Audio seems to be coming from only one side Performance drops for a few seconds on occasion explanation: This is my own entry. The game is sensitive to CPU usage, so you want to monitor and minimize CPU use by other processes. In my case, the Windows Superfetch service seemed to want to take some cpu time when the game was running. I'm not running the latest video drivers, though, so i can't promise updating them wouldn't help. I'm just lazy. Disabling the Superfetch service while playing mostly smoothed it out for me, because i found svchost as the culprit, and the Windows Resource Monitor helped me pin down the service. solution: Use Process Explorer to keep track of what is using CPU time and when, then take care of it. The gameplay (but not the audio) freezes for a second frequently quote: "Anyway, these freezups occur all the time, regardless of graphic settings, or DX9/11 mode. They happen ingame, in the main menu, ingame menu, intro and cutscenes. Have the latest sound and video drivers. Windows up to date." my response: I wonder whether he had his chipset drivers, too. Or, maybe a background process is grabbing all the cpu for a short time, though i'd expect that to affect the audio. The game minimizes when launched quote: "Hay everyone I was having the problem with launching the game and just having it minimize to the taskbar. The problem I found was with a bad Bink video player. After I downloaded the newest one from there web site that solved the problem." explanation: The game ships with a Bink codec, but an independently installed one may take priority. solution: Uninstall or update your Bink video player: www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm The Cat & Mouse diversion unfairly populates traffic for the players quote: "I played 3 times with my boyfriend. He was the host, and for some reason, whenever he was the mouse, he had no traffic around him, making him an incredibly difficult target to kill. Yet, when I became mouse, traffic was every where. I kept getting blown to bits in one shot because he blew up a car that was near me which caused my car to explode too in the chain reaction." my response: I wasn't even aware this diversion exists. Apparently you can start it if you're killed by the other player? I don't know. Streets are glowing white quote: "Hello all, been having a metric ton of problems with this game and I'm at wits end, whenever i try to boot the game in DX9 it crashes immediately. But the bigger issue I'm having is that when i play in DX10/11 mode, all the streets are glowing bright white with black flecks in it, any advice, already tried everything I could think of." Controller sensitivity is way too low quote: "the highest setting is what the lowest for any game is... i dont get it... there needs to be an update that changes this or a setting .ini. its unbearably slow" The framerate is okay, but everything is in slow motion quote: "I am able to play the game now but everything is slow motion. Not choppy, but as if the game is running really slow? Like everyone is underwater.. That's the best way I can describe it." The Three Way mission breaks when i get to the docks quote: "So I'm playing the mission as normal and when I finally clear all 3 of the initial waves the choice comes up to either save Shaundi or kill Killbane. Every time I choose to save Shaundi I get to the docks and nothing happens at all. The boss says "How bad is it?" or something along those lines and all the symbols on my GPS vanish. Am I missing something or is this a bug?" my response: I expect that verifying the game cache files might have helped. If not, this could be a mission bug that affects a small number of people, like The Belgian Problem and Free Falling. It may be possible to work around with a mod. Framerate sometimes drops to incredibly low levels, 1fps, when looking in a certain direction quote: "What happens is I might drive around town for an hour or maybe only 20 mins. I get solid 40+ fps, theres no meter but its definately at least that, everywhere. Then I might run into a spot where I look down an empy road and my frame rate drops to 1 per second instantly. I look away to a huge scene with dozens of cars, many many people and a huge city scene and frame rate is instantly back to 40+. Look down the empty road and 1 fps again." my response: I've actually had this sort of thing happen to me in World of Warcraft, sometimes, back in the day. There was practically no information about this online. The best i could tell was that it was either a bug very specific to my video card, an extremely rare driver bug, or an even more extremely rare DirectX bug related to... z-buffering or something. solution: Updating video drivers, and all other drivers, might help. Might have to get a new video card. Audio noise when video recording mode is on quote: "When I turn recording on in DX10 mode, I get lots of noise on my sound. If I disable Recording it turns back normal."
