I keep hearing about them. Is there a way to check on the performance of my installation?

Or is everyone just throwing around made-up numbers? :-)

Cheers

Two ways realy
When in game type the following in the chat window:

>fps START SHOW

or use a utility like FRAPS (which also lets you make screenshots and can record movies)...

to access the console hit <TAB> and <SHIFT> together;

Then type"fps START SHOW" and hit enter to display constent readout at top of screen.

To stop type"fps STOP SHOW"

Not to hijack Oso2323's topic, but I was wondering the same thing. I have done the fps Start Show but it doesn't show up. Do I need to have Speedbar turned on?

You must be in CONSOLE COMMAND by putting the "&gt;" character on first position of chatline!
Then "fps START SHOW" .... the whole thing should look like this :

"&gt;fps START SHOW"

notice that console commands are CASE sensitive too!
Try "&gt;?" or "&gt;? command" to get help on console commands.

Is there a tool, with FRAPS or otherwise, to get AVERAGE frame rate? I see average frame rates discussed, but do not know if this is a rough guess or not.

Bring up the chat window and type in &gt;. This will bring up the command console.

Then type... fps SHOW START

But this is for online play.

For offline hit Shift TAB to bring up the command console.

The in game fps meter will show your average fps as well as current,max and min.

After you enter the command hit the enter key and it will display.
