      Hang on hang on hang on..woah woah.

      Are you people saying that you actually get higher average FPSs
      w/ UT04 over UT03? With the same rig and all and say standard 1024x768 and normal settings etc??????

      That can't be right. Can it?:bulb:

        Got a p4 2.66 with a ti4200 and a gig of ram and I've not seen any map drop under 80 fps running in 1024 res.

        Maybe I'm imagining it but all the people complaining about this seem to have next gen gfx cards. Wild guess here but maybe swapping rendering device to D3D9 would help?

        ;RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
        RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice

        probably wouldn't hurt to try anyway.

            Maybe you don't understand the design complexity of convoy, Epic have done a great jop to get the frames where they are.

              You have no video? :haha:


              anyway like I said it was a wild guess. Not tried it here as I have no need to. Am getting higher fps in 2k4 than in 2k3 I would say. Frequently saw 2k3 hit 40 fps on a full server.

                  Shame. Like I say I was guessing

                  Edit: but it sure does seem that this problem is something people with new gfx cards are having. Us lowly ti4200 users are having a great time.

                    I dont have any problems, Im pegged at 85fps cause I cant disable vsync in UT2k4...

                    I have about the same system as yours, except i have my 9800NP @ 479/800 which is faster than your XT.

                      and the demo is unplayble with this lowframe ****

                        Hmm...
                        I have:
                        AMD Athlon XP 1600+
                        256 DDR Ram
                        GeForce2 MX400

                        Granted, I don't get the best FPS, but its tolerable(it also helps I'm used to 40 or less fps)

                          It's not the code, Derisor. You machine is more than muscular enough. Look to your drivers.

                            convoy is a Great map, it kills fps because of the moving cliffs in the background and the dust from the convoys tracks. the real one will probly kill fps more considering the texture and sound quality will be upgraded in retail and the lighting will be more dynamic. But also the netcode will be better thats a pluce you never know mabye cliffyB will delet some unseen faces and make it run 30% better :up:

                              Your are pegged at 85 online to stop you sending more than 85 packets a sec to the server as for some reason this game uses your fps to determine packets sent rather than using a fixed number. If you set you netspeed low you will see the fps drop even lower. Try the game in instant action and you will see higher fps.

                              I assume all the people moaning about fps arn't just 56Kers who have yet to try the gasme offline...........

                                May I ask what settings you run at? I have a lil' over what you have (mainly a 512 ddr ram and GF3ti200) but most likely am getting worse which means i really need to optimize my shiz.
