    Here is my config i use opengl settings.

    [Render_OpenGL]
    TexQual=3
    TexMipFilter=3
    TexCompress=2
    TexFlags.UseDither=1
    TexFlags.UseAlpha=0
    TexFlags.UseIndex=0

    TexFlags.TexEnvCombineDot3=1
    TexFlags.DepthClampNV=1
    TexFlags.SeparateSpecular=1
    TexFlags.TextureShaderNV=1

    SpecularLight=2
    DiffuseLight=2
    DynamicalLights=1
    MeshDetail=2
    VisibilityDistance=3

    LandShading=3
    LandDetails=2

    LandGeom=2
    TexLarge=1

    Use OpenGL in Video Settings tab, and be sure that you are running in 32 color, not 16.
    Once in game set your landscape settings to Perfect
    (and max everything else out lol ).



    That is about it.

    water=0,1,2,3 are a bit different with only one notice water=2 should not be used as this is some kind of testing value. Water=1 works just fine as water=3 is a fps hit at least for me it is. I am mentioning this to you because I see that you have water=2 setting, change it to water=0,1 or 3.

    If you do not set something right (openGL, 32 bit) you will see in game that you can not select "Perfect" landscape it is 'greyed' out:

    Kuna's advice should do it for you. Your conf looks fine. You may want water=1 as I find little/no difference between that and water=1. Doubtless someone will be along to correct me shortly.

    lol I just saw (noticed) it. I absolutely agree with you Vipez.

    I have FX5600 which is newer and stronger nVidia card and fairly good machine Athlon 3.2 with 1GB RAM, but I get less than 20fps in Perfect mode with few aircraft one map.

    I run it on excellent on 1024*768 16color.

    I used to have that card (440 MX) and it can't run perfect, it's either a new video card, or excellent settings I'm afraid.

    It has no pixel shaders. So no go.

    Besides ogl ,32bit color you need the stencil buffer on.Mx440 is not going to cut it.
