everytime i try to boost my framerate, i always have one thing slowing me down. whenever stuff starts blowing up, and the black smoke pillars erupt from the landscape, my fps goes down the drain. please please please, someone tell me there is a way to lower the intensity and quality of the textures that make up these special effects; otherwise i'll be permanently bogged down when i try to get those crucial shots.

Sounds like you may have some kind of issues either in software or hardware. Probaly not the place (as this is Gen discussion and not Tech support) but whats your specs and driver versions?

If you can run everything else smoothly, you may have some kind of problem on the system.

Drivers are the most likely cause.

ok i will post my directx diag tomorrow. right now i have to go study.
but basically i have 384 megs of ram, radeon 7500 with cat 3.8, and 900 mhz intel p3. i know it's bad, but i chug along just enough so my eyes don't bleed. just those darned special effects and their non-editable quality really bring me down.

-- and the black smoke pillars erupt from the landscape, my
-- fps goes down the drain.

For me, seeing dozens of black smoke pillars from crashed planes in one view have no effect on my grafix fps, visually or with the fps meter. You may be encountering CPU affects with your 900MHz P3. More than likely the smoke pillars can be correlated with the number of aircraft dogfighting and/or firing at each other, as this cripples fps along with AA firing at a limit even the worlds most expensive grafix card will not help, and even if you are on other side of map.

You need to be more specific about the "when pillars erupt" cos when pillars erupt, there is alot of CPU intensive thit going on in the air space around you. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The Radeon 7500 is the problem I'm afraid, it's just a slow card compared with whats out at the moment.

Of course a faster cpu would help too, but a new grfx card would help the most. Try for a Radeon 9500/9600 if you can afford it, otherwise try and get a cheap
Radeon 8500/9000/9200/GeForce3/GF4 (not a GF4MX thou) You can pick these cards up for about ‚£30/$40 now.

i would love to, but my mom decided a few years back when we got the computer that we didn't need an agp slot. so unfortunately i'm stuck with the 7500 until college, when i can maybe get my own pc.
any other way to help my fps out
