Oblivion - Every PC ; Us - 0 - Page 3

post #21 of 44
Ummmm, here is a post I made, it might defenetly help at both improving gfx quality and increasing framerates.

http://www.overclock.net/1257859-post7.html

BTW, your PC isn't something that is looking to have both quality and performance in oblivion. With my rig I drop under 20 outside (I use a lot of texture replacers also) and I don't complain because there is no difference to me.

Another thing, you cant really see a difference in oblivion over af 16 and 8, or 8 and 4. Especialy outside. And for us nvidia guys, its only a dream to put up aa and hdr.

You are processor limited and gpu limited and ram limited.

My setting ultra high, HDR ,1680x1050 @ 60fps outside intense fighting 40-45fps.
I don't think the game goes above 60fps mine stops at 60.
Before I had SLI I was getting 60fps inside, 30fps outside intense fighting 25fps.

Awhile back when I posted I was getting 60fps a few people said I was full of crap that was inside the caves when I first started playing. But outside was totally differn't it did drop to 25-30fps.
They were comparing it to 2048 x 1536 also, now that I think of it I was set at 1680x1050 my 21" monitor can't even goto 2048 x 1536.
Wow, lots of naysayers there coming from people who's PC is about 1/2 of what yours is.

Oblivion CANNOT be optimized to its fullest. It craps on whatever you got, especially outside. The foliage is not optimized at all, most trees were taken from speed tree without being run trough any kind of optimization, they use worthless parallax mapping with is experimental at most on a lot of little objects, bogging down your system even more, and than they dump a little more with outrageous textures and worthless implementation of texture-maps such as the lod witch is a ridiculous way to do texturing.

Rant off-

And you are limited at 60 fps because of the vsync, it maxes the frame-rate to your monitor's refresh rate. Vsync might also be buggy in oblivion, as I never experienced any tearing anywhere without it.

They also bug down your system by the use of sounds.

Oblivion is crap, crap development and crap implementation compared to the praise it receives.

My settings, leme see.

AF 8x, all optimizations off, high quality.
Grass is set at 60 (very dense) hr on, shadows 5 and 5. Water all reflections, tree clones=1, full level of detail trees=1 ugrids to load 7.
I also run qarl's texture pack 2, captn kill's no tilling textures, and quite a few mods to make-it look as good as it can.
I am amazed I can keep it that high. Here are some screenshots of what quality I get though, and when I get some more time I'll make a video, because I cannot capture how great the grass looks after major tweaking, especially as it sways in the breeze as you gallop on a horse.

Uploading to imageshack right now. Mine are over a mb.

the only thing that can really run oblivion REALLY well at high resolutions and maxed out is some crazy expensive quad sli or 1900 crossfire setup.

I play mine at the recommended settings for my PC. It recommended "high" for mine. I play at 1280x1024, and everything is VERY smooth in towns, but outside I can feel my fps drop into the 20s. I know it's my textures. I'll be getting 2GB of ram soon, so maybe that'll help.

Anybody killed Bruma yet? What level were you when you killed her?

TeLu, those are stunning graphics (bad code or not they are worth the price of admission for this game alone) . I'm using your sunset pic as my desktop background - it's that good.

Can I ask you which exact textures mods you are using? You mention Qarls, do you mean the 2048 x 2048 or 1028x1028 version? And do you use or combine any of Jarod's textures or Shaja's textures? I'm planning to work on my mods soon and its difficult to figure out what is truly the best.

Maybe you could post the list of mods you're using?

I think a phased X6800 at about 4.5 Ghz with a X1950XTX CF system might be able to handle it... MIGHT.
