Rage PC has Texture Pop-in and Lacks Graphics Options

Quite a few PC gamers are raging about the current state of the Rage. Unfortunately, some gamers are having issues with texture pop-ins and poor texture quality. Check out this video below which shows the horrid pop-in.

Fortunately, there seems to be a temporary configuration fix that you can apply in the meantime. This involves enabling the console and entering a few commands.

C:\Steam\steamapps\common\rage­\base\default.cfg

Add “set com_allowconsole 1” without quotes to the top

If you launch game directly from Steam the console will now be enabled.

Type in console: “cg_usecompression=0” without quotes and hit enter, then enter “cg_useprecompressedtextures=0” without the quotes.

Hopefully that fixed the problem for you. However, that’s not the end of the story. Unfortunately, there’s also a lack of graphics options. Currently you can only change things such as your resolution and anti-aliasing amount.
