I grumbled about ordering PF from UBI, and them not sending it. They had sent it, but didn't update the site to let me know. I ordered it Thur night at 11pm, and I just got it now Mon 3pm. It's an option for you if it's not released her on time. I even got the really cool postcards.

Now where did they park my Corsiar?

BUZZ, your average 156 fps?? What kind of rig you running that on?

I am running a the AMD64 bit FX53 processor (fastest chip out right now), 6800GT card, and a gig of RAM.

With this set up I average about 60 fps. Do I have something wrong with my set up?

Actually, 156 was what I was getting in that shot. The average is 212. Looking down on the water is almost like looking at the sky. You get high fps. If I jump in the cockpit, and look forward i'm down to 70 fps.

I only have a P4 3.2 1g of Corsair, BFG 6800GT, blah blah. It's built bt Falcon.

Nice picture. That looks like water=1. Possibly water=2. Definitely not water=3

Buzz, thanks for the shot of the frame rate. I too have a new Falcon. I can't wait for PF! All the best, LongHorn

There's something strange with the water in that pic, it seems like you are forcing shaders 1.0 instead of 2.0 that will give you much more complex waves (not talking about water=3 for ps3.0 with 3d waves).

Check differences ITT (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=49310655&m=7421062332)

edit:bleh! nevermind, I checked for my self, you're using sm 2.0.
Very nice fps indeed!

Hey Mantis,
You a fellow Gator Fan? I really hope our savior Steve comes back home. Zook is a great guy but not a great coach.

Buzz lovely shot, lookin in Wal mart today and hope PF is on the shelf.

Just want to clear something here man.

Your average is so high because you have a skewed max fps when you started the counter. Thats why I dont recommend the in game counter. You need to start play, pause game, start counter, then resume play. This will give you a more realistic average. You also have a min of 0 which is throwing things off.

Coastie, i've always preached the average fps in FB is useless. I've told that to everybody who gives the average fps for the Black Death track. I always look at the present fps, and the lowest fps I get. The lowest fps is the most important for me. If I see less than 30 fps at any time I lower the settings.

I don't claim to have a super system. I had just installed PF. I set it on perfect, and took a screen shot. That's all! Yes, it's water 1. Water 3 is a huge hog, and I can't run it unless i'm willing to accept low fps, and i'm not.

I'm not the type to brag about a system. I think that's childish. Anybody can buy hardware. What's the big deal? I was simple showing a screenshot.

Buzz,

I like bragging about things I can barely afford.. It makes me feel better about my rash decisions.

I also like bragging about my online persona. In real life, I may not be particularly special, but online I am absolutely increadible! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif


Offline, I never mention a word about myself or what I do for a hobby--that would be embarrasing.. Other adults would be like, "Oh...hmmmm. Very intersting.." And then I would really feel childish.

Actually, I do brag about a couple things in real life.. Like, I have a great sense of direction and I have mentioned this in numerous discussions. I wonder if I can attribute that to my this flight sim as well...? :S

How 'bout that? Online experiences helping to deal with real life problems.. That's got to be the only recorded case of such a situation.
