Batman: Arkham City DX11 issues

Batman: ArkhamCityreleased for PC on Nov. 22nd roughly a month after its console counterpart. Many were excitedly awaiting the PC release only to be disappointed with the games performance on the PC. The game itself isn’t the problem, the issue lies within the games DX11 features. To be exact the problem is with the way the game handles a DX11 environment, essentially the game is conflicting with the utilization of DX11 causing intense stuttering and lag, and on some systems renders the game unplayable all together. The good news is that Rocksteady is aware and currently working on a fix. When the problem will be resolved is unknown but it would behoove Rocksteady to appease their paying customers by making the fix a priority and releasing a patch sooner rather than later. In the mean time if you bought Arkham city for PC you can solve this problem by disabling DX11 and running the game in DX9 making the game playable. WB and Rocksteady have given instructions on how to disable DX11 using the game’s launcher.

 

The Launcher can be accessed on Games for Windows LIVE and Steam to change DX 11 to DX 9 in the Settings menu.
Change both DirectX 11 Features and DirectX 11 Tessellation to OFF.

2. Select All Programs and then the Games folder
