Draw Distances OP
« on: August 20, 2013, 04:31:38 AM »
I can run the game fine at high, around 30 fps, but when I leave the base, I find my fps instantly drops to 5-15. Lowered all my graphics to minimum and figured out that if I look down, It runs at smooth 60 fps. Any way I can reduce my draw distances?

Best general, well except the toxin general, because that guy's basically a sure fire win.

Definitely try the CCC utility Bruno posted. It's amazing.

I used to run MWLL on my ancient computer with only a 2.3ghz dual core, 2 gigs of ram, and a Geforce 8600. Except for stuttering on certain maps (due to low RAM) I could get about ~20 fps because I ran the game with everything disabled via CCC.

Try Win Vis 9.0C or Win Vis 10.0, I think it doesn't matters much. 10.0 might give a few shader bugs that you can solve, but if you wanna avoid that just use the 9.0c.

Yeah the shader bugs really are not that big a problem either tbh.

If you're referring to the glitch where player names and cbill transfer screen don't appear, that is easily solved. Just hit the tilde ~ button whenever you join a server to bring up the console and it will never happen.

Prodigal son my ass.

Best general, well except the toxin general, because that guy's basically a sure fire win.

The infantry general is surprisingly good... Though I've always liked the laser general... because lasers...

Dr.Thrax was mainly good cause the other two kinda sucked.

Air General, cause planes and bombers and shit are cool.

In a skirmish, anything involving infantry, producing non stop. Yeah, because I rush.

Honestly guys, the toxin general would wipe the floor with all others in 99.9% of battles.

Not needing power, toxin trucks and tunnel networks. It all adds up to game winning.

Personally, I like camping myself in my bases, building mass defences and massing gigantic armies while I wait for my Nukes to charge. After I launch all my nukes at 1 player, I send my army for a mop up.

(P.S The CCC didn't really help. My FPS Is at 40 when not rendering much and gets to about 10 when rendering large distances. Is there any way I can reduce the render distance or increase the fog? I don't really mind....)

Do you know what model your CPU and GPU are? OS version and amount of RAM?
