Bro i had a lot of fun playing this shit, the soundtrack a dope asf too. It really is a great game if you start making yourself laugh playing it.

Wow I absolutely love this game! I've only played passed mission 1 but I already love it and the only reason I've only played so little is because of a bug. For some reason when I leave a building my frame rate drops massively. My PC is capable of running GTA 5 at the highest settings so it should be fine with running this game (no offence meant just so you know, your game is awesome!). My drivers are all up to date. Any idea what the cause could be?

Hi, thank you for your feedback! Can you provide me your full PC specifications?

Intel Xeon E3-1271 v3  @3.60GHz 

16GB RAM

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

Windows 10  Pro

Thanks! Those specs look great, I only have 256MB of VRAM on the machine I created the game on. The framerate will drop for a few seconds on the first time you exit a building (it has to draw the whole city for a few frames) but it should speed up again. Do you encounter the frame drop every single time? 

I'll have a look when I get a sec. I'm working for the next 3 days but when I can I'll run an FPS counter and play the game for a bit then send over some footage to you. I'm pretty sure though that it happens constantly when outside of a building. When I last played it I felt like the character moved very heavily when outside and the cars took a very long time to respond to inputs.

Hey! Sorry for the late reply. Here's a gameplay video I made. I've nevr done this before so you might want to skip through it. :)

Thanks for the video!

Your PC definitely hates running the game for some reason. I've not seen anyone with PC specs as good as yours struggle, which is a bit strange. I'll be honest, it's not the best optimised game (and Game Maker isn't designed for such large rooms) but any modern dedicated GPU should handle it. Perhaps your configuration is a rare exception.

A few general things to try:

-Try turning V-Sync off in the game settings. Also try running with Frame Skip turned on. Make sure anti-aliasing is turned off.

-Check the Windows task manager while the game is running. Is the CPU or GPU at 100% by the game? If the usage is still low, you should be able to increase the priority given to the game.

-I believe NVIDIA GPU's have a software controlled option to clear the cache. This may help, I don't have an NVIDIA card so I can't testify.

-Check all video drivers are up to date. 

-Decreasing the resolution of your main display may improve performance. To be fair, Total Anarchy doesn't look much different in 720p than it does in 1080p.

Hope this helps :)

Oh and by the way, is David Firth a voice actor in this? I swear I've heard his voice on the radio. The humour is so good in this game! Also the beats...big bad ass tunes! I'll be paying for this game.

I can see some good old GTA 2D inspiration. Well if you need an audio guy for a jam then check out my portfolio

what do i do?

Hi! What are your PC specifications please?

i got a windows surface pro 4

That error message usually relates to insufficient GPU memory available to load in the city. How much VRAM do you have on your machine? It may also help to keep your video drivers up to date or try a better graphics performance setting on Windows. If this issue persists, I am releasing a new update in a few weeks which has improved the video overhead, so hopefully will help. 

for sure i'll look into what you said and look out for the update.Thank you for getting back to me on my question. The game looks amazing and i cant wait to play the whole thing. keep up the great work

How is dev progressing?

I've been keeping quiet , but I am hoping to post an updated version in a few weeks.

Looking forward to it :)
