The jumping high is connected to the FPS, so if you have problems reaching a certain point, try to increase the FPS by lowering the solution and turning off V-Sync.

If the game is turning black every few seconds, then disable "Auto-adjusting" in the option menu, it changes your resolution everytime it detects an increase or decrease of FPS, which is nearly all the time for me.
