    I think he means if you have a athlon chip,then most likely there are 4in1 drivers for your mobo.

    If you have a intel chipset then it would prob be Intel chip software and Application Accelerator for your mobo.

    There also sis chipset as well.So the best thing to do is goto your mobo site and see if there is any mobo drivers for your mobo.

    [corrected my error]
    i was ment to say what chipset your mobo has.not cpu lol

    stupid question: by chipset drivers, do you mean updating my BIOS?


    .........I wondered about this for a long time..... cuz I get rather crappy fps with my P4 2.0 ghz, 768 PC2100 RAM, Radeon 9800 Pro........


    .........so, I was wondering......... I haven't updated BIOS (is it the same as chipset?) ////I have everything else updated tho

    My system is a 3200 Barton 400 MHz core, 1GB PC 3200 Dual Channel ram, and a Radeon 9600 XT. My average fps on Convoy is about 40 and Onslaught is about 45. And that's with AA and AF turned up. I'm getting average of 75-80 in all the other maps. Do you peeps with the low fps have the latest drivers, etc? What about the sound? Are you running hardware audio rendering, or software. I know in UT2K3, most systems performed better by using software audio rendering.

    Here too, Convoy obliterates my PC.
    The other maps are ok (axp1800+, gf2ti)

    well the dm map and the ctf map run both very well, but the ons one kills my system.

    Game runs outstanding accept on convoy, that map is a fps killer.

    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:
    Setting the world detail to low kills the cliffs, and I barely get any FPS increase. It's not just that.

    P4 2.6c
    DDR 400 1 Gig
    Radeon 9800 pro

    Every single map in this game runs smooth i have no framrate issues!

    1024x768 Everything in the demo maxed the same with ut2k3, plus high settings in the Ati display panel plus 4x AA, 8x AF! The game actually runs a bit smoother than ut2k3!


    Halo is the only game i can't play with steady fps!

    If people with similar systems have no problems, your system is the fault. Maybe not all drivers are up to date or there's some settings causing trouble

    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.
    About as low as can be...
    one thing to do is go into the UT2004.Ini and set "Use16BitTextures" to true

    Runs smoother than UT2k3 or Unreal 2 for me :

    1280x1024, everything at full detail, very smooth fps on every map

    Athlon XP +2600
    512MB DDR
    Radeon 9700

    Don't want to be a whiner, but this happens in pretty much every game. People don't get the fps they expect and they come to the official game forums demanding that 'the game engine should be optimised' and making posts like "game doesn't work on nVidia/Ati cards!", because they can't get it to work, although majority of people can .

    If people with similar systems have no problems, your system is the fault. Maybe not all drivers are up to date or there's some settings causing trouble, just one of those things you have to live up with a PC. It's impossible to make a game that works on every hardware/software combination without problems.

    Rant over

    ummm...with those specs you should be able to run NO problem...

    what res/how much AA/AF. AA cna KILL FPS in UT24 is you set it high enough (2x + high res works best)

    My system isn't holding up too badly. XP 2600+ 512 pc2700 and Radeon 9700 (non-pro).

    Getting anything from 60-80 in most maps, around 40-45 in ONS, but only about 25-35 in Assault. That convoy map is brilliant, but it seriously hurts the FPS. I think it needs a little more optimising, even though they've done loads already... fly around the map while speccing, you'll see all sorts of bits appear and disappear as each objective is completed.
