View Full Version : GW choppy in Persicope and free view?

07-03-2006, 02:34 PM
Am thoroughly enjoying the GW mod, however it gets really choppy and the framerate drops dramatically when in persicope and free view modes.

I never had a problem with the unmodded version, so wondered if anyone else had this, and if there is a fix for it?

My specs are:

AMD 64 3000 754 skt
Asus K8V Se Deluxe Motherbaord
Gigabyte 6600Gt 128mb Silent Pipe Passive Cooled
2gb Crucial PC3200 ram

Apart from that, I'm very pleased, oh, aside from the contacts not showing up as which ships they are when I am close enough and have identified them, and there is no 'torp track' in F6 mode.

Hi BR, How u?

Thanks for replying my friend.

I'll take a look at my GFX Card settings.

PS: Been a nightmare to get on the forum today - You had any troubles?

Tried first thing today - no joy.

It's 21:53 BST (UK Time) and the main Discussion topic page doesn't seem right!

Server up the creek without a paddle?

I was in my office yesterday morning, got onto the forum, looked at another site but got an error message when I came back. I hyperventilated for a while, touch and go for a moment.
I have always had a spray and chop thing on my periscope in bad weather, only the uzo gives me a flat/calm view

Thanks everyone. When I say 'Choppy' do you all understand I mean the game slows right down and stutters. I wasn't referring to the sea state or waves lapping the periscope view?

Just wanted to be sure we were all on the same level!

in other words your frame rate drops like a rock?..

Yep, bang on BR. It's really frustrating, it's a real effort to drag the mouse pointer around, .i.e. to select a torp tube or id a ship.

Anyone else had this? only in periscope and free view modes.

i'm not shure if this will correct the malfunction..but gw has 4 visability files ...you may try installing the 8k folder ..{if your using the 16k version}..also as i said try dropping the aa and af on the vidcard...hell man..at least we got ya running..now for the tuneup .. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Hey Br.

Shouldn't you be out celebrating? Ah, time zone difference huh?

Anyways. I'm not sure where these files/options you mention are? Could you elaborate a bit more for me?
