Performance Issues
« on: July 02, 2010, 03:32:53 PM »
Okay, so basically what I found was, after an agonising wait, I've been able to download and get 0.3.0 up and running, only to find my FPS is total crap, more so than usual.  I was like "Okay, sure, people said they had FPS issues with the new patch, so what did I expect on my sub-par machine?"  All seems okay, although it sucks.

But then I go to play TF2, and the FPS is unplayable as well.  Noticing a pattern, I load up Mass Effect, which I have running in a window so I have absolutely no issues playing normally.  Laggy as hell.  I've tried lowering my resolutions too, just doesn't seem to work.

So... any ideas what's happening??  My specs are:

E7400 2.8ghz Dual Core
4gb RAM
9400GT

Let me know if any other info is needed.  The graphics card will be a moot point in a week as it's being replaced with a HD5770 but I would still like to know what's going on :(

Have you just recently updated any drivers? Or have you not updated or ages?

I haven't touched the drivers, so I'm guessing that there's a problem with the ones I currently have.  How would I check the versions etc?

9400GT is the issue. You'd be lucky to pull 10fps at 800x600 with that thing.

Once your new GPU arrives everything should be fine.

Would you believe me if I told you I got somewhere between 10-20 fps at 1680x1050 with it on previous releases of MWLL?  ;D  Don't know exactly what it was, but I could play, and decently (most of the time).

Well, thanks guys, I guess I can wait a few days until I get the new card, mean while, I'm relegated to the 360 for any gaming.

10-20fps is unplayable and I would smash my head against a brick wall before playing a game at that fps. Just saying XD New graphic card will fix everything.

you should get better performance BUT 030 introduced some bad FPS for odd sets of people.  So far we haven't pinpointed the issue.  Though the devs might have but is keeping is hush hush till 032

Guess if you never seen uber graphics you don't know what you are missing and it doesn't bother you. XD
