I'm sure this has been talked about a lot, but I'm hoping some nice individual can talk a little about it, and help me out.

I have 1 Gig RAM, AMD 64 3200+ and a Radeon 9800 Pro.

You may want to try it your self.
To see fps on the game do this.
"Shift-Tab"
Type: fps START SHOW
"enter"
then "shift-tab" again.
to stop do the same but type
fps STOP SHOW

(I run OpenGL i get better frames)

Do you have a Radeon card?

Even though ATI cards prefer DX to Open GL, IL2 runs faster when in OGL mode (most of the time).

DX works best for me. OGL runs like poopoo.

I don't know about fps, but OpenGL just looks so much better.... I can't stand looking at the DX render after seeing GL in action.

Good hunting,

I've been using DX, but lately I have tried Open GL and have been using Perfect settings with no problems.
The new Ace expansion pack seems to be running alot smoother than the old Forgotten Battles.
My machine is a
Dell 8200 series
1Gig of Ram
ATI 9800 Pro 128
2.53 Ghz Processer
Auidgy 2 Sound Card
Not the best but does the trick. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
You have to play around and see what works best for your machine.
Good Luck! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I have a radeon 9600 pro and definitely see better frame rates and smoother play with DX.

Some good tips here and I found that I got a better FPS after running through this guide and using OpenGl with my 9700pro.
