Does anyone have any suggestions to make FH run faster without turning my graphics down or buying something. My loading time is rediculous it probably takes about 4 or 5 minutes and im using a brand new Dell! so if anyone knows a trick or something like that i would greatly appriciate it.

Well, pal, first of all, I guess this is a thread for the Support forum. If at all.

Second, what is it exactly you're having problems with? Long loading times (really improved by more RAM) or low in-game speed (improved by fast graphics card and fast processor)?

Thirdly, a few specs on your PC might be helpful - like processor speed, amount of memory, type of graphics card and so on...

The thing that really help the loading speed for FH or BF is getting more memory. I have 2 gigs and FH loads like in 45 secs.

Which obviously means you can run any game out right now at full settings with 16xAA and 20000xAF and have solid 200fps.

We can't do much to help this really. We did improve it a bit though. But the shear size of the textures, sounds, and amount of vehicles per map makes it this way. That's why BF loads so fast....because look at how many vehicles are on each map. Don't you think if we knew how to make it load as fast as normal BF we would have?

Post your specs.

Factors that affect load times include, but are not limited to:

processor type and speed frontside bus speed hard drive RPM hard drive cache size file system (NTFS is faster than FAT32) RAM type, speed, and amount CD-ROM speed virtual memory settings page file size time since last defrag

If you want anyone to help you, you need to post this stuff. As someone else has already said, "brand new" doesn't tell anyone jack, especially since you have a Dell, which gives customers, shoddy, propietary components at absurd prices.

EDIT: What the hell does 'bad in-game speed mean'? Low FPS? If you bought a Dell there's a good chance that they didn't even give you a video card and you're using onboard video. If they did, chances are the video card they gave you is a piece of shit. Either way, you won't be able to run FH at full settings with any decent framerates. Again, post specs.

Don't change any settings until you post your specs. You don't know whether he's running poorly because his hardware is insufficient or what.

Post your specs dude.

A new Dell could be anywhere from a 1.2ghz to a 3.4ghz. You need to post system specifications. And guess what - you're going to have to either spend money or turn down system settings. That's how you make things go faster with computers.
