Incoming patch for Batman: Arkham City; DX11 performance and stuttering addressed

Good news for Batman fans as Rocksteady has a new patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham City. Although we don’t have enough info about it, we do know that this patch will address the stuttering cut-scene issue that some players have experienced and – most probably – the game’s DX11 performance. According to Sarah Wellock, Rocksteady’s European Community Manager, the patch is with G4WL for submission and awaits Microsoft’s certification. And as we’ve said and before, this is precisely why developers should ditch G4WL. Continue reading Incoming patch for Batman: Arkham City; DX11 performance and stuttering addressed

Batman: Arkham City – PhysX FPS boost in DX11 and DX9 with custom apex.dll

Now here is a great find. Guru3D’s user ‘gerardfraser’ decided to try Mafia 2’s apex.dll file and see whether or not he could gain any performance boost with it in Batman: Arkham City. Apparently, there is a nice performance jump as the user witnessed a 20fps boost from using this apex.dll file. In other words, this is a must-have file for those that wanted some of the PhysX effects, but were put off by its atrocious performance. Continue reading Batman: Arkham City – PhysX FPS boost in DX11 and DX9 with custom apex.dll

Rocksteady is working on a new PC patch for Batman: Arkham City

It seems that Rocksteady is currently working on a new PC patch for Batman: Arkham City, as Steam had accidentally released yesterday its preliminary version. So, if you were unlucky enough to try and play your game, you’d notice major game-breaking issues. Moreover, GFWL was not working properly with that preliminary patch and the game was – pretty much – unplayable. Naturally, Steam released a rollback update and the game is now back to its previous, stable state. Continue reading Rocksteady is working on a new PC patch for Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City PC Performance Analysis

Okay, this is a game for which we really wanted to write a performance analysis. Given the fact that Rocksteady was preparing a patch for it, we decided to hold off and see whether the update would introduce any performance boost to the DX9 path. Unfortunately though, Batman: Arkham City is an un-optimized mess when it comes to its PhysX implementation. In other words, Rocksteady relied on PC’s additional raw power to overcome any performance issues. This is not shocking at all as Rocksteady used an old version of the PhysX SDK. But let’s start with our analysis, shall we? Continue reading Batman: Arkham City PC Performance Analysis
