Hi. Somes of my friend gave me computer part so I couldplay games with them. It's a 500Mhz(Celeron), 288Mo of SDR RAM, Voodoo 4 4500 AGP(32 Mo of RAM), AGP 2x compatible video card and mother board. When I run the game and I put all setting to low/off, I still get crappy fps in the game. I was wondering if there is a known way to get around this. Is it possible to reduce the resolution more than the game let you(I think it would help alot) or desactivate some features in .ini files that could help increase my FPS? I was also wondering where you enter command for the game(in talk menu???) and what is the command that show your fps.

Your first problem is your CPU. Since Celeron processors have so little cache, they perform much slower than Pentiums of equal speed. Additionally, have you made sure you have the latest video drivers? The video card itself may be the problem, since 3DFX (the company that made the Voodoo cards) is out of business. As for your other questions, what kind of commands? Console commands? The console doesn't exist in AvP2, but the readme has a list of debug commands you can use, which include the command to display the FPS, I think.
