The game is optimized for AMD cards, and thus Nvidia cards can post low FPS for the auto detected settings. Setting "Enable Quality Anti-Aliasing" and "Screen Space Ambient Occlusion" to Normal should noticeably improve FPS.
But you can remap ↑+↓+←+→ to work like W+A+S+D and vice versa using AutoHotkey. After installation, when prompted to create the first script, choose Yes in the dialog box. Then, delete everything from the Notepad file which opens and paste the following: http://pastebin.com/9FvTujrT.
After that, right click on the AutoHotkey icon in the notification tray and choose Reload script and you will be able to use the arrow keys to move the player and cars. In the future if you want to use the arrow keys in the game just start the AutoHotkey application you are done.
To be resolved issue.
Running the game in compatibility mode seems to resolve the issue.
Running the game in a lower quality seems to resolve the issue.
When selecting resolution in video options, only pre-made presets are available, user can't choose to change refresh rate, which often force players to play in windowed mode.
The game starts in windowed mode and no matter what you do it just stays in windowed mode. Alt+↵ Enter doesn't work and neither does setting the video option to fullscreen.
POTENTIAL FIX: Close TeamViewer if installed. (Note: The issue with TeamViewer is the "QuickConnect" feature, which puts a little arrow next to the close, minimize, etc. buttons. Go into TeamViewer's advanced settings to disable this, and you can run TeamViewer with Sleeping Dogs in full screen at the same time.
POTENTIAL FIX: Close (or stop) Actual Multiple Monitors, or other multi-monitor software if installed.
POTENTIAL FIX: Would not go full screen at non-native refresh rate, changing refresh rate to 60 Hz fixed the issue.
A potential fix is to reinstall the game.
