    I'm sure this has been talked about a lot, but I'm hoping some nice individual can talk a little about it, and help me out.

    I have 1 Gig RAM, AMD 64 3200+ and a Radeon 9800 Pro.

    You may want to try it your self.
    To see fps on the game do this.
    "Shift-Tab"
    Type: fps START SHOW
    "enter"
    then "shift-tab" again.
    to stop do the same but type
    fps STOP SHOW

    (I run OpenGL i get better frames)

    Do you have a Radeon card?

    Even though ATI cards prefer DX to Open GL, IL2 runs faster when in OGL mode (most of the time).

    DX works best for me. OGL runs like poopoo.

    AMD Athlon XP 2600+
    1 gig ram
    Radeon 9600 Pro

    I don't know about fps, but OpenGL just looks so much better.... I can't stand looking at the DX render after seeing GL in action.

    Good hunting,

    What if there were no hypothetical questions?

    I've been using DX, but lately I have tried Open GL and have been using Perfect settings with no problems.
    The new Ace expansion pack seems to be running alot smoother than the old Forgotten Battles.
    My machine is a
    Dell 8200 series
    1Gig of Ram
    ATI 9800 Pro 128
    2.53 Ghz Processer
    Auidgy 2 Sound Card
    Not the best but does the trick.
    You have to play around and see what works best for your machine.
    Good Luck!
