|If you are getting Texture Popping then you have exceeded the amount of available video memory.|
Ahhhhhhhhh I see so it is our "own fault" is it, I shall make sure I never exceed the available video memory in future ............ oh wait I never have exceeded the video ram but I still got texture pop in. I run GTA 4 on the Auto settings that YOU guys recommend (in fact I have to turn them down a bit because the frame rate is still crap). Any way at least we know where we stand with the texture pop in problem, you aren't going to fix it you are just going to blame us
Sorry I did not mean "YOU" as in the end user, I meant the combination of the video driver, OS, game, etc. Again, if you are seeing issues with texture pop in then please see the thread I quoted above.
"auto configure" is not an exact science, it is our best guess based on what is reported from our queries to the OS.
For example, if you have a 9400 card with 1 Gig of VRAM, auto configure settings will be too high because the 9400 GPU cannot keep up with the load from using 1 Gig of Video Ram.
Also it is a requirement that by default we set the games resolution to the resolution set by the desktop, which can overwhelm a GPU in some cases.
