    UT2004: The FPS in the demo is BAD.

    They must have some seriously unoptimized maps in the demo. That or the engine has gone down hill. The reason I say this is because the demo is giving me really bad FPS (28 to 35). This makes it almost impossible to hit people that are dodging in convoy because they warp from one sode of the dodge to the other or merely warp while running.

    Now I know some people are goign to flame that I should turn down the settings and I tell them now that I have all details on low and screen size on 800x600.

    Then they will say, "You need to upgrade n00b." To which I will reply that I have a brand new self built computer with the following specs:

    AMD Athlon64 3200
    Asus K8V Mainboard
    1.5 Gig. DRAM (400)
    Club3d Radeon 9800XT 256
    Maxtor 7200RPM 160 Gig drive.

    Well those are only the relevant specs. Its not my system boys. Either the enginge needs to be optimized o the maps do. A system with the horsepower that I have should be able to handle 80 to 100 FPS in this game.

    Me and some 85% - 90% thinks the other wise.

      Agreed, Convoy is very hard map of fps, it needs optimizing. I still had fun playing it though.

                  Torlan? Thats the onslaught map? The onslaught map is nice to my FPS. Convoy is nasty.

                    If that is your lowest FPS then you're a lucky guy, don't complain.
                    28 FPS is my avarage FPS in Convoy.

                        No, that just means you should be agreeing with me.

                          Run it with "stat fps" on and in a 16 player fight and watch the FPS and the warping.

                            I agree. Convoy really brings many systems to their knees. I get ~80 fps on most areas in CTF-BridgeOfFate (which is really good for my Athlon XP 1600 + Geforce FX 5200 with 1024x768 and normal detail), Torlan and Rankin give me average performance (~40-50 fps)... and I get ~25-35 fps on Convoy If I turn all the detail down I get a ~2 fps boost, which isn't really worth all the uglyness IMO

                              Yes and No........................
                              Convoy is a nice map but I think the 'moving cars' are responsable for the FPS drop.
                              Eye candi or .........
                              I think it's optimized enough.
                              I think this map will disappear from the servers just like other FPS sucking maps.
                              That's what I saw happen with UT2K3.
                              Time will tell.......................
