Hard Reset - a lot of lag after updating

Ok I've been playing a game called Hard Reset (Wikipedia link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_Reset) and when I first ran it everything went well. I had to set it to medium to get full speed though - I looked online (I went on Google and typed: Hard Reset patch) for a patch to see if it would help any. I found one (Hard Reset 1.24) and I downloaded and updated the game after that I started up the game and with all of the same settings I got a lot of lag... I am thinking about doing a clean install of the game and not updating (seeing as it ran better with no patches or anything).

** Additional info.**

patch_notes.txt (found in program folder): http://pastebin.com/f9HUAUAV

My specs...

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bits)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor @3.20 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 430 (1024 MB)
RAM: 8GB DDR3

Any advice?

Check if you have updated Windows and have the latest drivers.

Some patches also require DX11 support...see if this one does and update accordingly.

Best solution

its a DirectX 9.0c game and the patches does not require/add any of DX11 support.

Quote:
- New default shaders cache.
- Faster generating shaders.

that might be the problem with 1.24, try 1.23 patch, besides i finished the game when still no patches are out and didnt have any problem / bugs.
i have your cpu and a GTX470 all maxout, the GT430 wont handle the game on max settings.
