Got my 2nd BL2 Co-op video up if anyone wants to check it out.
Why is everything dirt cheap in India? I remember same issue with BF3 Premium, so they had to raise the price since tons of people were using VPNs to get it for half price.
I'm posting my question here since it feels like this would be the appropriate thread
Hi, I have a 6950 2gb (sold my 2nd one a while back)...
Wondering how to get a solid 60fps in Borderlands all the time... It drops to 30 when I a big vista in front of me with lots of far-back details shown on screen...
I would love to know if anyone here has a 6950 and has recommendations for me. Also wondering if d3d overrider helps with this game (meaning, I wonder if d3d overrider V-sync is better than the in-game one)...
What drivers are you using and do you have the latest CAP installed? Are you sure CrossFire is working by checking the load on each card?
I have 12.8, I'm using a single 6950 2gb (sold my 2nd one a while back) so I'm not usin CF right now...
I tried turning off ambient occlusion, and when I do, I get almosta 20fps boost (when starring at huge vistas)...
I think what you are experiencing is normal with your setup. According to benchmarks I've seen (using an i7 920 in this case), average frame rates are around 60fps with fps going over and under the mark.
Yes, I do believe that my fps is not terribly bad... Most of the time I have 60fps... it's just that IF I put AO on and face vistas, it drops to 30fps...
Now, what I would like to know is, how much of a performance hit do you think physx has ?? I don't know much about physx... is it compatible with radeon cards ? or just nvidia?
And if it does work with readon cards, do I need to manually download physx software onto my pc and configure it properly for my radeon card?
also, do you have any idea why is it that the AO eats so much FPS when I face vistas in the game ??
EDIT: What does "mouse smoothing" do ?
Yes, sorry re post - I messed up the embedding last time.
I wonder if this is a natural error or something they allowed for as an Easter egg- it looks SO much like Han Solo in carbonite it's almost intentional.
Since you are using an AMD card, PhysX will be automatically set to "Low" and it will put the minimal PhysX load on your CPU, so nothing to worry about GPU related here. Ambient Occlusion and the AMD 6 series cards don't work together very well. You're better off leaving the option disabled.
Mouse smoothing does just that. It smooths the motion of the mouse. It should not be turned on unless you are using a very old "ball in socket" type mouse. The best thing to do is to keep it off and just adjust the mouse sensitivity to your preference.
I finished the second playthrough a few hours ago. Currently I'm farming The Warrior until I find a legendary (any). Managed to find a 32k damage non-elemental sniper. Also, leaving the side-quests until the end was a good idea, all their rewards are level 50 now. The level 50 Law is awesome.
I'm on an ATI,
I changed the following to :
On average I'm getting an extra 15~25Fps now, depending on the scene.
With Vsync that took me from dippy staggery 45's and 55's to a near permanently constant 60 fps - Nice and smooth.
Gotta be honest I would have done it anyway though, I hate bloom and blur.
Just wondering if BL2 is any better optimized for PC than the original Borderlands? I might pick it up this weekend from Amazon for ~$40
Thank you very much for the reply. Indeed, Physx was set to "low" from the get-go, but I found a way to force it up to "high" thru the .ini files...
Which doesn't take too much fps away. you're right about the AO tho, that's the real performance eater in all the settings I can touch... Aside from that, everything is working great. Again, thanks for your input, very much appreciated
One more question:
I've grown quite found of physx effects in games that support it. All the objects that explode and the particule effects are VERY nice indeed. Isn't there any way to tweak something or install some mod of some sort to force the computer to use the GPU to run physx instead of my CPU ???
(I have a radeon 6950 2gb)
I am on 6950 2gb Xfire and I noticed the same thing when I played once with Xfire disabled. In big fights it would drop down to 30-40FPS but then I realized Xfire was disabled and once reenabled it was a steady 60FPS.
nope. wont work on AMD GPU's.
you can either run it on CPU, or with a secondary nvidia card.
what would be the best nvidia card to run as a secondary with my current radeon 6950 2gb ? (bang/buck)
yup... can't wait to buy myself another 6950 again...
Which file and line did you change to get the Physx on high?
I tried out these other .ini tweaks that are listed below, helped out with the ammo textures alot!
Ok, figured it would be that one. But do you know which line to change? I'll mess with it once I get off work. Thanks in advance
Use this wiki to find out what to tweak
To be honest I think this link should be put in the OP
I got bored of farming The Warrior -since he wasn't dropping any legendaries- so I went to finish of the quests I hadn't touched until now. The first time I killed Hunter Hellquist he dropped The Bee Shield...
Thanks Brandon! I'll check that out later after work.
wow, that site isn't blocked at work like most game stuff, amazing!
