Occasional tearing and FPS drop with Siren (Forbidden Siren 1)
Hi, everyone. I've browsed previous Siren threads but I wasn't able to derive some recommended settings from them.

For the most part, it runs okay. But I've run into a couple of problems:

a.) Occasional tearing (is that what it's called)?

Here's a screenshot from a movie early in the game:

Again, this only happens on occasion, and I usually get nice crisp shots like this:

b.) Whenever I get to stages where there's a light drizzle, my FPS drops to 30 or so. It seems it has difficulty rendering all that drizzle?

Core 2 Quad Q8400 @2.66 GHz
4.00 GB RAM
Windows 7 32-bit
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

Thanks in advance!

8400 GS is pretty bad. Like worse than modern integrated graphics bad so you might want to turn down your internal res/scaling. As for the first issue, that's called interlacing, not tearing. You can change interlacing options in the Video (GS) Plugin Settings menu. I usually use Blend BFF.
