Additional Comments

Required dwrite override set to native. Performance is poor on the majority of maps. The cause of this is not a CPU bottleneck, and does not appear to be a GPU bottleneck, as the difference between the RadeonSI a Catalyst 14.9 drivers was a best a couple of frames per second. Changing the video settings only has an effect of a couple of FPS at best. This is possibly because it is not doing Occlusion Culling, but I am not certain of this. The frame drops are worse when facing a lot of things that would normally be subject to Occlusion Culling though. One thing is for certain though, increasing the available video memory in the registry helps a lot. I have 2GB of VRAM on my card, so I set it at 1792MB which makes it playable on most maps. With 3 or 4 gigabytes of VRAM, you should be able to play all but the largest maps without noticeable slowdowns. (An 8GB 290X is looking pretty good in this scenario; they work pretty nicely with the FOSS drivers, which work nicely with this game.) There is still a rendering issue where everything is too bright, but otherwise looks the same as on Windows 7. It is playable as long as you stick to the better performing maps and don't mind playing at 20FPS with several frame drops per minute. Tested on Phenom II X6 1090T @ 4GHz with 16GB of RAM, and an XFX 7870GHz edition with 2GB of VRAM.
