  • a little guidance with settings

    Hi guys,I'm sure this gets asked a lot so I apologize if this is beating a dead horse.I'm thinking of reinstalling this very realistic and fun game,but the main reason I un-installed it was because of the horrible frame rate I was getting.

    I have a pentium 4, 3.0G
    2G ram
    Nvidia 7950GT
    windows XP pro

    I thought I would be able to run it decently but I was very wrong.Any pointers to make this a better experience?

    by the way I played it at version 1.06,has this problem been fixed at 1.08?

    turn off shadows... it'll almost double your framerate

      No offense, but I think the main problem in regards to performance is in the player's mindset. I've rarely heard anyone on the server playing with OVER 30 FPS (UnDeaD, maybe, but even he drops when using scoped weapons at trees, etc.) especially in the cities themselves. I get around 25-30 frames in cities, and as low as 15-20 when looking through the binocs at vegetation. This is not a game that demands a monster frame rate. If you enjoy the mechanics and logistics of the game itself, the frame rate shouldn't be that big a problem. Just my opinion.

      BTW, your machine is better than mine. Wouldn't have written this if it wasn't.

        Oh no I do understand the pace of this game,very deliberate planning and execution of the plan.The thing is when things go south or when the firefight gets heavy frame rate for me drops and trying to do small things like break contact becomes a chore.The game is fine when things are quiet but when the sh&*t hits the fan it drops.

          Performance is better in 1.08. What settings are you using? I run everything on high and get better fps than with things on low. That is the general report from everyone. Turn off post processing and turn off shadows and you'll get some extra frames.

            Turn off render frames ahead, turn off VSYNC. Helps quite a bit.

              I average about .5 fps during MP missions and still find the game very enjoyable. My only gripe is that I can't snipe as well as I'd like to because any time I scope a city or a tree line I'm pretty sure that I'm actually running in negative fps. So I just don't snipe.
