This probably ought to go to the official forums but I'm too lazy to log in there.

The ARR benchmark is throwing an error on my laptop. I know that the error is probably the benchmark's way of saying "...the **** are you trying to run this on a 2 year old business laptop?!" but it is a string of unintelligible memory access code violations.

There, I've criticized SE.

Ah yea i wanted to ask something about the benchmark. Should it be in windowed mode? I mean i put my settings all high and resolution at 1920x1080 and instead of being at full screen it goes into windowed mode. That happens in any resolution i may pick, so that's why i am asking if its always in windowed mode or i am doing something wrong.

It's always windowed.

That's the primary reason you don't see performance boosts from SLI/Crossfire as those require fullscreen mode

Hmm, that's a shame. Any reason they are doing it that way?I mean i have seen other benchmarks that go full screen, that's why i thought it was strange.

The benchmark is just supposed to verify whether your system is capable of running the game or not and give you a rough estimate of how well it can perform. If you're running with an SLI/Crossfire setup, you already know it can handle the game.

Probably best to wait til beta phase 4 and tweak with the full screen settings then.

I had issues at first running it as well on my laptop. I had to run the DX9 install twice before it started working.
