Hello all first post :woohoo:

Ok my problem I am having is the game does seem to use all of my cpu power I have and is limiting me fps :(

I get about 15-50, mostly 20fps when there is a lot of cars about.

My cup usage in the task manager is only 35% so I am thinking that is the problem?

Graphics low or high it will not matter the fps will be about the same.

My specs are.
amd 955 @3.8
5870 1gb.
4GB of 1600 ram.
Windows 7 unlimited, 1920x1080p monitor.

Is there any tweaks or something to help me out ?

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Current release of CCD makes almost no use of multiple CPU cores, so on your quad-core CPU it uses a single core at a time, that's why there only 25-35% of CPU usage.
So, there are no tweaks for now, but things could change in future versions.

Your system is way more than enough to run the program, except it could probably use a little more ram.

Update your drivers, especially video card and sound card and run the game, lower the anti-aliasing to 2X or turn it off and see if it improves. I have a GTX 285 SC 1GB which is comparable to your card (yours is a bit better) and I can run the game on max, but with lots of traffic it will lag so I lowered the anti-aliasing to 2X. You wont really notice much of a difference in graphics.

Also, you have a high-res monitor and this game doesn't take it easy on your graphics card at high setting, so if you're running it at full 1080p resolution it will bring your card down to it's knees when it tries to render all those objects in 1080p HD. You might want to try taking it down to something like 1680x1050. Mess around with the settings, see if it helps.
