Guide to make COD4 Run faster

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay, well i had encountered some Horribly low FPS issues, due to my machine, which specs are listed below:
Pentium 4 2.4Ghz
2GB DDR 400
e-Geforce 7800 GS CO Superclocked (Plus, my hefty O/C gunner2.gif)
Rosewill RD-450W PSU
Antec Superlanboy ATX Midtower
Creative labs CT4057
Realtek Family Ethernet
Maxtor 250GB HD w/ XP Pro

So, as said, i had encountered FPS Problems. (It was originally Windows 7, so i wen't back to XP. Ran good for a bit, But here comes the trouble again....)
So, this is what you need to do, in-order to get over 50FPS Constant.
1) Use Yitch3.cfg Configuration! As many said, it will speed COD4 like crazy, depending on your specs.
2)Use the setting "Dual Video-Cards" - That takes advantage of your GPU 100%, so if your having a temp issue already, don't do that, unless you mock up your GPU w/ fans all over it.
3) NO Shadows, Dynamic lighting, Ragdoll (or i call it Ragdoo) Map Detail, AA, AF, Texture filtering to Auto, And so on. IF, you cannot stand no AA, 2x should be sufficent, because it chews on GPU usage.
4)OVARCLAWK! - As long as your CPU has aftermarket cooling, or it's temps are in the 20C's of idle, and around 30-40C Load. For GPU's, Try to have sufficient cooling in your system (And i dont mean three 80MM fans, I mean like four 120MM 2000RPM Fans, in a ATX Full, or midtower or better.) Better cooling for a GPU = Higher Overclock, and same goes for CPU.
5)Run game @ Native Resoultion. (For all you people that doesn't know what "Native" is, meaning run it @ your desktop resolution, (eg. 1280x1024)
6) Run your Refresh rate @ native refresh rate. (eg. 60Hz, meaning 60 refreshes of the screen, every second.)
7) Only run Texture resolution - This is the key thing for Eye-candy. If your running anything below 1280X1024, turn it on extra for the "Life-like apperance". If you Are running 1280X1024, i recommend setting it on High, but if you have more than 256MB of memory (Like a 8800 GTS 320MB) set it on Extra.
8) Try to ONLY have this game as a task up. (Also, setting it to a High Priority will give a FPS boost, and help with lag)
9)Try Gamebooster, An application that defrag's RAM to use for your Game, mainly taken up by system resources that arent the least bit useful, and won't harm your system.
10) Try to get the recommended requirements! Do everything you can, to Get a better system! More RAM = Better loading times, and better system performance.
11) Use the command line: \cg_fov 80
That gives you a bigger view range, which actually Improves FPS Because of it being a bigger field of view, and it doesnt require as much GPU Usage to Make it look smooth.

I hope this crap helps, because I hate Anything below 50FPS.
If you have Questions, just ask me!

ummm isnt this just saying put more fans in your case cause your over heating
and turn down the settings? o.O

also with 5, if you run it at 800x600 instead of 1280 x 1024 itll run faster? but look worse. ofc

If you have No Airflow, your GPU/CPU/MEM Gets extremely Hot, and slows down to keep itself safe = Crappeh Ef-Pee-es
Putting more fans in a case, or modding a case to add more fans = a Cooler CPU/RAM/GPU, to overclock higher. No, If you run it @ your native desktop, it will perform faster, Raising or lowering Res. doesnt really do much, with the older cards. I might gain like 3FPS, for the price of losing Eye-Candy. And, Some people's monitor's can't run 800x600, unless looking like utter crap out of a cow. (I run my desktop @ maximum res on my TV, which is 1360x768.) I Get more FPS out of my Native Res, compared to 800x600. And, with my old monitor, 1024x768 was better than 800x600.

I am sorry, but adding more fans does not give you more performance. I don't get where you get that logic. It prevents it from overheating and artifacting, but it doesn't give you more FPS.

You will always get more FPS out of a lower res than a native res. Compare any benchmark for any game between two different resolutions and you will find one gives you more frames than another.

Now Yes, I might have a crappy system, But there's no sense in trying to crumble my self-esteem. I'm upgrading to A Pentium D 3.8Ghz w/ 2GB DDR2, and a 9600GSO.

Well, if you overclock, yes. I was trying to emphasize the point of adding more fans to Overclock. Now if you read that posting carefully, you will get it correctly, and please stop skimming, and actually take time to read it carefully, and understand the point, before correcting someone that's been doing this as a job for over two years.

I would save your money and get a better upgrade, just my 2 cents. Although its an upgrade, its not a huge step up.

Congrats, I have been doing this for 8. Lets not compare job records shall we? I was merely pointing out the flaw in your post, I did not skim anything because you wrote that case airflow will affect clocks on the GPU, which isn't entirely true. I have a closed case with not the best airflow. My GPU is on stock and it doesn't underclock itself. All video cards provide adequate cooling to ensure that the card does not overheat. Obviously this is OCN where people OC their cards and install aftermarket coolers, but its not necessary.

You also state more RAM = more performance, so why is that the top benchers in the world use 2-4 GB, instead of 12 GB? You are fine with 4 GB of RAM, I have seen people do fine with 2 GB. I know when I stepped up from DDR to DDR2 (same quantity) I got more performance than 2 GB to 4 GB.

I think this is kind of obvious, no? doh.gif

If you're overheating, you need to cool things off.

If your games aren't playing well, turn settings down.

Common sense? confused.gif

Nope, Don't have the money to upgrade to like a Q6600 w/ 4GB DDR3, And SLI GTX 280.
