View Full Version : Massive Flights and Frame rates

I was researching the Niobe AA cruiser (nice flak....) and found an old mission done by the fellows at RaFiGer which simulates the Russian attack on the ship in Kotka. It has over 130 planes (and AA) in it! Looks like it would be fun to try, but it brought my old rig to it's knees...4fps sitting on the tarmack!
I have an AMD Xp 2000+, 1 GB RAM and an old Geforce3 Ti200 video card and usually run 1024x768, 32 bit and excellent mode.
Has anyone tried masses of planes like this and got decent framerate? Whats your spec?
Also perfect mode does not seem available to me. Is that graphic card dependant?
Just wondering......

perfect mode requires a decent card yes, running in openGL! The most ive pushed so far on my new rig is 80 planes but i was gettin average 40 frames then, with Ack Ack! And i use all the perks (water 3 etc) I think i could get over a 100 just cant be arsed to build that kind of mission yet!
