    Default UT2004 gets framedrops after some minutes of play (10FPS OMG)

    After not more then 5 minutes of play, UT2004 gets serious framedrops. Usally 30~40FPS, to 7~12FPS. When i bought this PC i had about 50FPS.

    I have a 2ghz dual core processor from intel.
    A Nvidia 8600M GT Video Card with 512mb video memory.
    4GB RAM.
    Super fast internet connection.

    Here is what i tried to get rid of this problem:

    Try playing offline and playing with less players online - FAIL.
    Scanning my whole PC of virusses, malware and other **** - FAIL.
    Checking CPU heat for a cause of the problem - FAIL.
    Checking active processes that eat up CPU during play - FAIL, no proces that eats CPU that much.
    Checking CPU - SUCCESS, the whole CPU is filled with....nothing? after not more then 5 minutes of play.
    Updating all drivers of the whole damn notebook - FAIL.
    Throwing the mouse around the room - FAIL.
    Giving UT2004 a high priority in task manager - FAIL.
    Disabling HID's in device manager - FAIL.
    Calling Acer for warrenty repair - FAIL, they are stalling time so they dont have to repair my notebook.

    More solutions i can try?

    Are you playing 'vanilla' UT2k4 (no mod or mutators)? A few mods (BW, OoH for instance) have very large memory requirements. Have you checked your UT2004.log file to see if a lot of script warnings are being written?

    Have you upgraded OSs recently? is your Hard Drive doing a lot of swapping?

    i play at servers that require mutators yes. but also in offline play, with standard deathmatch maps with no mutators, is making my pc get huge framedrops.

    in ut2004 log i found this:
    Log: (Karma Excessive Joint Error. Destroying RagDoll.
    and about 100 antiTCC warnings.
    Warning: AntiTCCSecurity AS-AmazingEggRace-WithEggs-v2.AntiTCCSecurity (Function AntiTCC2009r6.AntiTCCSecurity.O30970O:0078) Accessed None 'O86270O'
    No, i never did any OS upgrades or downgrades.

    Nope my hard drive only acts weird the first minute i boot the notebook. i hear alot scratching. then it returns to normal and everything's fine(that means i dont hear that weird sound anymore)

    Try reinstalling the game sometimes that helps. Clear Cache folder.
