Hi. Is 30 to 40 FPS an acceptable rate for this game? It has ran as high as 55 and as low as 25..but only for short periods of time. Should it be better with my system? Am running Windows ME 950Mhz Athlon 384 mb ram 64mb GeForce2 mx400 SB Audigy gamer sound card Sound acceleration is off All back ground tasks are off....(accept systray and explorer) System has always ran very well, but this game is a real work-out for my machine. I also run Medal of honor and it's expansion and it runs VERY SMOOTH even at high settings........ Thanks a lot! insp-clouseau
I used to have a very similar setup. I found the game unplayable on large maps ( >32 player ) and even 32 player games would sometimes become unplayable depending on the map. The only significant differences between system setups were that i had a gf4 mx440 and 512mb ram.
windows Me does not have a good format for gaming.I ran Me for awhile and had lots of problems.Ive since upgraded to xp,and now i have no problems.
Hi insp- clouseau,
That frame rate is probably as good as you will get for your CPU and Vid card combo. With a 2ghz CPU and the same vid card you will probably get a increase of around 15% fps (but your mobo wouldn't take the CPU). With a new vid card (GF4Ti) you will probably double your fps (but your top fps will be limited by your CPU).
ME is not the best OS for gaming, however if you can't afford a new OS it will run acceptably as long as you keep background apps and uneeded processes to a minimum.
Most ppl don't realise, but MOHAA is much less demanding on the vid card than BF1942. The GF2MX400 is the almost minimum spec vid card than will run BF1942 succesfully. Would suggest upgrading the vid card ASAP.
Oh yes, and haven't I seen you around on some of the servers I play on, the names the same, I play on 3FL, Eftel Austarnet etc.
:cya: :cya: :cya:
Well...I am finding out that these low frame rates really aren't that bad. Apparently, it depends a great deal on the map how high it will go. So far, it has gone up to 80 fps...but again falls back down around 30-40. I have found that when I fly,the fps goes up really nice..odd, seems it should go the other way?? As apocalypse has said, I can't upgrade the cpu enough to make a difference..and the only way I can upgrade the video card is to replace this puny power supply (250 watt) Guess I'll save up for another pc......thats the pits! Hey apocalypse..I'll keep an eye out for you on that server...but I have to warn you, I am terrible at this!!! Thanks pilate ,Maj.damage and apocalype_kid... insp-clouseau
