    MY fps is down in the retail version by 50%!!

    My fps went down 50% in the release version. I have texture at 5 and World detail at 1. Same at the Demo.

    In the demo I was getting 65-70 on my fps. In the release version Im only getting 25-35 max fps and im running a Geforce 8800 768 OC with the latest drivers ( Beta ). WTF is up with that? I have not changed anything on my system?

    Anyone else see a decrease in the retail version?

    This might not be why you're having lesser framerates, but remember that if you're running the game on your computer with bots, the bots will cause dips in fps for some reason.

        texture detail was capped at 4 in the demo, even if you had 5 set. Try dropping the texture res back to 4 and see if that helps.

            Ill say it again
            The maps in the demo "Videocard friendly" dont compair to the variety in the retail.

            You will see a decrease in framerate, if u decide to turn the texture's all the way up. Especially when playing in warfare.
            How much? Who knows, depends on your card.
            Moving the slider all the way to 5 in the demo only used medium. Now if u move it all the way up, its a different story.

              My lowest framerates in all of UT3 come straight out of Shangri La. They included pretty much the harshest map on videocards in the beta.

                  K well it sounded like u took it a little to personal
                  Well anyways your framerate will drop, playing on server with warfare/vctf with like 32 player and having everything maxed.

                    Well my FPS of the retail is like double the demo for me...

                    with the demo : 1920*1200 with everything on low to reach 30-62 fps
                    with retail : 1920*1200 as well but with everything high for a 62 fps with bots and all

                    oh and i didnt uncap the fps... ME LIKES IT!

                      There are other people complaining
                      "not me" about the retail not running as good as the demo.
                      I disagree about Shangri La.
                      There are maps in the retail the use your systems resources more than Shangri La.

                      You could be a little more detailed in your post
                      What maps? acually it dosnt matter, dont really care

                      There are maps i can get 50FPS with my old x1950 "DM-Gateway "and others that are unplayable "like most warfare maps" with everything maxed.

                        Just an FYI the range is between 0 and 4, not 1 and 5, so that is why 4 is the highest you can go. And apparently you can only set it to 4 in the ini file, because in the game if you turn everything up, it only goes as high as 2.

                        My experience at least.
