Hi all smilie.gif When I play on Joint Operations now I normally have a frame rate of about 35FPS. But sometimes when I'm playing the screen stops for a sec and I find myself several paces in front of my last position. The sound still flows smoothly, just not the picture. Could this be down to any of these or something else entirely; overheading (gfx card, hard drive, cpu, ram), power supply, damaged hardware. I have updated my graphics drivers, and flashed my bios My PC specs are:

  • Abit IC7 Motherboard
  • P4 2.8ghz
  • 512mb Geil Value PC3200
  • GFX 5600 256mb MSI
  • 80GB SATA Seagate hard drive

IF this occurs when you play online and yo mostly play online, then I would believe that it most likely be caused by internet connection latency. But it could also be a combo of high ping latency and your video card getting bogged down. IF this is occuring while playing single player, then prolly just your video card. Try restarting your comp just before you begin to play everytime to empty your comp of miscellaneous processes and data, and then try turning down some graphics settings in the game, maybe lower the resolution. If this doesn't help then Defrag your HD to make sure your system doesn have to do to much searching if it has to go into the pagefile to keep running the game. 512MB of RAM is good but some games these days after playing for long sessions will completley consume 512MB. so you may want to think of increasing your system memory with another 256 to 512MB.

It's probably a connection problem. If the server has a bad ping and you enter it with a bad ping, I suggest that you should try and find a less laggy server.

also joint ops engine is one of the more demanding ones out there. My 9600pro256mb will barly go 30FPS even with a low res, and medium settings so the game is not ugly... Try adding some more ram and if you have the $$$ go for a better card:lookaround:

AtrixJoint Operations... 35fps... I have updated my graphics drivers, and flashed my bios My PC specs are:
  • Abit IC7 Motherboard
  • P4 2.8ghz
  • 512mb Geil Value PC3200
  • GFX 5600 256mb MSI
  • 80GB SATA Seagate hard drive

If it ran cooler it might help a little... the 256mb 5600 is a decent card, are you SURE its running in AGP 8x mode? Often that can be overlooked. Also, the aperture, try increasing the memory size.

Penium 4s aren't the best gaming processors, is that an HT version? How much L2 Cache does it have? If it is a cheaper one, the L2 cache may be too small to play games good.

I agree with everyone else though. It may actually be the card... or the Antivirus software or a "high ping" connection, of 60 or more.
