  • frame rate?


    I am tweaking the display options and want to find out how this affects the frame rate? Is there a way of displaying the frame rate? I know there is some kind of console but I haven't used it yet.

    Never played Unreal before and just downloaded the UT2004 demo two days ago. Amazing!

    Hit the console key: tilde "~" and type: stat fps

    This will display your current fps and average fps in the top right corner.

          Adding on to that. Is there anything you can type in the console to set your max fps? Most times the default frame rate is set lower ,but the faster computers can play with a highter frame rate. I know for games like RTCW and Et , this could be done.

            I wish I had the problem of setting a maximum framerate!

            Anyway, what type of FPS is favoured in PC games...20...40...60?

            I'm getting 25 with most settings on normal, 800 x 600, 32 bit colour. My setup is...

            Athlon XP2000+
            XFX GeForce 2 64Mb
            256 PC133 Ram

            I'm guessing that 512 DDR Ram would improve performance a lot...

              Drop it to 16 bit colour - you wont notice the difference and your fps will be way better.

              And yes, another 256 megs of ram will make a big difference too to your performance.

                well, as far as I know, there isn't a 'favoured' framerate in pc games. The bigger, the better. I assume you're an X-BOXer or something?

                  25? Definitely get the extra 256. My FPS is normally 100, and I've seen faster. I also agree that the only dif changing to 16 bit will be improved FPS. Anyway, the faster the processor the better, and don't forget about video cards!

                    I was wondering after the previous question about setting a maximum framerate.

                    I haven't got an XBOX but I do have a Gamecube and a PS2. I got bored with consoles and am having lots of fun playing online with the PC.

                    I've set everything to the minimum and am now getting 30fps which plays fine. I'll upgrade my ram soon though. Get 512 ddr...

                      Just something for other UK based newbies, to get the console up you have to press ' and not ~

                        Well I own an xbox though I dont play it much. Im more of the online Pc gamer. For instance in the game of Return to Castle Wolfenstine or the follow up game Enemy Territory you could put this in your config file,

                        Seta Com_maxfps "125"

                        and if you had a fast enough computer you would play at this framerate. Currently playing Ut my framerate is at about a 60 average. Im thinking thats the default max frame rate. I was just wondering if it can be raised. I mean my game plays fine where its at , but like a earlier post said. The higher the framerate the better
                        When the full version comes out there will be sites that pop up telling people with slower Pcs, the things they can change to improve framerate. This goes way beyond just changing your colors to 16 bit. There is a cfg file. There will be things in that file that arent important to play the game. Some of those things will be able to be turned off or changed to improve framerate. An example would be seeing blood when your shooting someone.That takes away from your framerate. Im no expert on it, and like I said , it wont take long after the full version comes out for sites to pop up that address this. I was just hoping there was someone that may of figured it out already the way to increase max fps.

                          well tv shows and movies are < 30 fps (exact is something like 29.97 for US). honestly you might be able to tell the difference at 40 or even 50 but anything more is probably unnoticeable to the naked eye... at any rate it won't effect your gameplay at all.

                            I like...

                            Isn't the most the human eye can see about 60ish fps? I know when I play anything on the PC, i'm happy with anything 60 or higher..

                              26 True FPS is the most a human eye can see.
