    It's part of how I end up at the top of the server...the higher FPS really lets me play better. NO differnt than quake players turning hte settings as low as possible!


    There's not alot of lost visual detail, either. It's different, yes, but I don't feel I'm missing a thing.

    To be honest that's how i felt last night. When i set it at Ultra then it's 35/40 fps, High is around 50/60 and Medium i got up to 90fps. I played Metro and the lack of detail doesn't really bother me in this map. I could really feel the difference in Medium and High. High is what i play mostly but medium really did not look all to bad and was a lot faster and felt better when playing.

    yeah 35 to 45 can be fine, but it does affect my playing in a large way. It could be becuase I use a controller, and that syncs in controlelr input with the display output or some other such thing, I'm not exactly sure why, TBH; I just notice the difference, and my scoring seems to reflect that difference.

    I play on all low, 2x msaa, low post process aa, and triple buffering and vsync through D3Doverrider just to keep a constant 120fps. Helped me out alot.

    I switched between all the settings and I think the game still looks gorgeous on low and the jaggies gone and the smoothness of 120hz/fps is really hard to beat.

    There's the problem. The graph doesn't show any frames per second, none. It shows the render time for both the CPU and GPU, so lower numbers are much better than higher ones.

    Ah well that explains a lot lol. I missed that important detail and have been reading this graph wrong. Thanks. I couldn't believe my CPU at 4Ghz was that "slow". And actually have not been bothering to OC my GPUs lately because I figured that would just worsen the gap so definitely need to do that and retest. Still think not enough for 4X MSAA though as I'm sure I tried early on. Earlier drivers then, though...

    The graph shows a few spikes that can go high sometimes but I dont see the two colors splitting.

    CPU: ~21-23 AVG: 23.72 Min: 8.58 Max: 65.48
    GPU: ~20-23 AVG: 23.58 Min: 23.66 Max: 31.13

    The graph reminded me of a Ham Radio graph

    If you have not already, you might try setting the in game smoothness down to zero. I don't know what in the world they came up with a lag setting but setting that down helped smooth things out at lower frame rates for me.

    My coworkers would not get off my back about how I should play it and how the graphics were epic and the story was awesome yada yada yada.

    i play it, it sucks. End of story.
    Online blows
    Graphics remind me of CS:Source Beta
    Physics? N/A
    Realism? N/A
    Ballistics? N/A

    Returing tomorrow for money back? You bet!
    Should have picked up Kingdom Hearts instead. Much better game actually worth the money.

    In his defense, I am sure he ment he just played the game. He doesn't own a 360 so I am fairly sure he wasn't dumb enough to drop $60 on it.

    And the graphics are not that bad. CS: Source looks like ass. You have nostalgia vision going there.

    Does anybody else have the issue with the latest nvidia driver and their SLI being buggy? Every now and then, my fps will drop to single gtx 570 performance and then later go back to sli level performance. And it is really annoying, especially in firefights. I remember playing on a single gtx 580, and while the two 570s had higher max fps, the single 580 had more consistent fps?!

    WOW you couldn't be more wrong about it all .
    Graphics are more real to me than in any other game I have ever played to date ! I could careless about Physics .
    Realism ? Man nothing more real than dog fighting with another jet or getting your throat cut with a knife ! Or driving a M1 Abrams TANK ! Ballistics ? Yeah tons of guns tons of rockets tons of fun !
    Online blows ? Maybe because you were getting smoked and ran like a 10 year old kid running from the bully ! How long did you " Play " it ?
    Or is it because it took that CPU of yours to the MAX and your computer just couldn't hang ? And maxed out your RAM and video card so hard that all you got was stuttering ? You can say it sucked cool but from what I have seen from what I have played this is the best game since crysis ! And is far better in terms of maxing out your entire computer and giving me the best game play I have ever had hands down . But then again I have an Intel Q9650 and no problem with Ultra settings . :twitch:
