[UPDATED WITH DRM DETAILS] Tales Of Symphonia PC Locked At 720p, 30 Frames Per Second
[UPDATE] More issues on the game have been confirmed. Apparently, the game uses a DRM called VMProtect which creates a new .exe every time the game starts. Some people are also experiencing random crashes
[ORIGINAL STORY] The PC port of the classic Bandai Namco role playing game Tales Of Symphonia is now available for purchase on Steam and several fans of the series are now enjoying the game. Or rather, not enjoying it, as the PC port comes with some issues that make it far from being the best version of the game.
According to online reports, Tales Of Symphonia PC is locked at 720p resolution. Trying to increase the resolution just scales the image, resulting in very bad quality. Making matters worse are the frame rate lock, which makes the game run at 30 frames per second and typos that were not found in the PlayStation 3 release As the PC port of Tales of Symphonia is based on the PlayStation 3 HD version which is, in turn, based on the PlayStation 2 version, all this was somewhat expected but it’s disappointing to know that very little effort has been put in this port.
Tales Of Symphonia PC comes with some additional content that was not available in the original Nintendo Game Cube release such as new bosses, new costumes for all characters, new Artes and Mustic Artes for all characters, new skits and more.
