Can anyone tell me the optimum setting for UT2k4 with maximum details without sacrificing performance? My PC is:
AMD Athlon64 3000+ 512 MB DDR ATI Radeon 9550 256 MB
well set everything to maximum .......DUH
Resolution causes the biggest performance hit, keep it set at 1024 for the best performance/quality ratio. For the other settings, just try setting them all to maximum, then individually turning them down until you get a good framerate.
First set the screen resolution to 1280x1024, this will not hurt fps. Almost everyother setting is a trade off between fps and visual quality. I found that a site will explain every setting and adjustment tweek your game to your own preferance. http://www.tweakguides.com/UT2004_1.html I would advise not printing all of it, will take over 50 pages. But I will recommend using the benchmark utility, either the one found in some of versions of the game or the one downloadable from UMark.
