I've seen a few posts regarding loss of FPS with the patch. Was wondering if anyone with low end systems had probs as well or made the game unplayable. Pre patch for me was ok at 1024x768 with most settings at medium. If alot is going on (the dive on sinking the Marat for example) it slows to less than 15 fps. But most of the time, I'm above that.

Hiya tmdgm1,

My rig:

*P3 866
*512 sdram pc133
*ASUS GeForce2 GTS 32 MB
*Creative SB VIBRA 128
*Win 98SE

That low end enough for ya?

I downloaded and applied the patch a couple of days ago. I've been playing FB pretty solidly ever since (stopping to sleep, eat and go to work!)

I've not noticed any significant difference in frame rates or overall performance of FB. I've notice some improvement in sound and FM - no doubt due to the 'fixes' in the patch?

I also run at 1024x768, with most settings at medium or slightly above medium. It falters occasionally when the action gets heavy, but most of the time its OK.

Hope this is helpful for comparison purposes.

I'm saving up my hard-earned shekels to build a new rig. In the meantime, I get by, I suppose!

Best regards,
