Driver: San Francisco marks the return of the established video game series that has sold 14 million copies worldwide. Gamers will play as Detective John Tanner on a relentless manhunt for crime lord Charles Jericho through the hills of the City by the Bay. Thanks to a groundbreaking gameplay feature, players can now seamlessly "shift" between well over a hundred licensed vehicles, keeping them constantly in the heart of the action. With its timeless setting, unique car handling and renewed playability, Driver: San Francisco will revitalize the classic free-roaming, cinematic car chase experience for the current generation of gaming platforms.

Problems

Invalid Read Errors

Starting a new game spews many Invalid Read errors. Disable Panic Handers to avoid these.

Unlimited FPS

This game seems to update at whatever framerate it wants; meaning that on slower computers, even though it is running 60+ fps, the VPS will be under 60; resulting in audio/visual lag. The only workaround for this it to use dualcore and have a fast enough computer to satiate the game's demands for GPU. Single Core seems to be impossible to run full speed.

Cutscenes

The comic book cutscenes require non-fast Texture Cache Accuracy to display. Refer issue 10703.

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
