Weird Framerate!!


Recommended Posts

Ok, so I upgraded my PC quite a bit a couple of weeks ago, and everything was running fine, untill I loaded up me favorite game, Unreal Tournament 99 (also know as goty). At first everythin looked good, but when I got into a game its started going crazy, like frames droping, or lagging. Ive tried all sorts of drivers, but I get the same results. My friend thinks its becuase I use x64, he has the same prob too. and I read there was an app to make certian programs to run better on x64, but no luck, any one has info on this?

btw, the old specs are

AMD Athlon @ 1.20GHz

768MB ram

ATI Radeon 9600 series - AGP 256MB

the new are

AMD Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.82GHz OCed

1.75GB ram

ATI Radeon X1600 PRO - PCIx16 512MB

any help will be usefull, thansk again guys ^^

stuff should run much better on ur new machine, period.....there is no such app really - there are patches/fixes/drivers for dual core processors, but thats about it....

what frame rate are you getting ? .....does it seem it is constantly hitting some frame rate, sort of bouncing around it ? - if so, you probably have the vsync turned on, or some sort of a game internal command that limits frame number

yeah if you get 60 fps its 99% because you have vsync on. 

if not than try those 2 options:

1. get the dual core optimized from amd.com

2. clock your pc to stock speeds and check if it works than.

i dont trust fraps...it never shows me more than 60 fps...and i should be getting 100+ easy lol

hye guys, I went off to try the dual core optimize thing, but I couldnt find anythin, so I decided to try teh vsync thing. I disabled it... I got like 300FPS, however this didnt resolve my problem, in fact it made it worse... grafics going waaay to fast. so I decided to record a vid, but to my astonishment, it started recording at 25fps and the game actually got playeble!!! now, I guess the question is, is there any apps or settings that I can use ti limit fps of my monitor to 25 ~ 26fps when I play that game, so that I dont have to record each time I play?

thanks again guys!
