Yeah, ultra settings really seem to vary. I tried it and it dropped down to 10 - 15 fps which I consider unplayable. Normally I get 50+.

It all depends on your rig. Forcing ultra moves more work from the CPU to the GPU, which is why many people see improvements. For you, though, that 2500k will handle more of the game than your 460, so it makes sense.

Ultra settings are a way to get around being CPU bound, if you're already GPU bound they'll significantly decrease performance.

I played the other night for about an hour, but I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to be doing. So, what are you supposed to do? I would just wander around trying to kill the enemy players if I could find them. Flying those plane type things was pretty fun, but I crashed a lot.

Ultra settings are really just a different way of brute-forcing the game to perform better.

Excellent mate. +rep for you.

I'll definitely post back with some results.

Easiest way to learn, join a squad and just follow orders...It will take A LONG TIME to learn the maps, but usually the squad put waypoints and such. A mic will also help you a lot, as most players are more than willing to help if you have a question. If you're not sure how to join squads, as soon as you join the server hit "insert", which will "auto join" you to a squad.

Anyone here play TR on SolTech? I've been flying a lot lately, thinking about starting or joining an air outfit. Would be a blast to have a few Liberators/Galaxies certed to be bombers with several Mosquitos to scout and protect, and just run dedicated air support for a while.

Hey Bros just started to get back into PS2, was in beta but didn't spend much time with it.
I play NC on Waterson (?)
Named Abaticus.

Had some glorious fights last night. Really enjoying tank driving while 30+ infantry swarm around me. Good times.

Does any of the recent patches affect the Ultra Settings config posted earlier? I want to try this. And the PhysX looks awesome! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I play TR on Soltech, but I am exclusively infantry and armor. I've spent exactly 5 certs on my planes, and 5600 on everything else. biggrin.gif

I do have a skyguard though, which is always handy when you're doing galaxy drops. Just tell me where to be 90 seconds before you get there and the skies will be clear.

More on this later, but I will say this: Do what you want, your imagination is what's currently limiting you.

I'm NC on SolTech, therefore I must dislike you.
