post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
How do you measure frames per second in general? Such as when I am playing stalker? or other games? I know on fear you can run a test, but what about when you are actually playing

Most have a command line option, or as someone said, you can use FRAPS.

Yes FRAPS is good but never better than the built in FPS counter (unless the person(s) who made the game were idiots).

FRAPS works fine but generally most games today have commands to display an FPS counter and I would personally use this feature over FRAPS as it can display your FPS without slowing the game down as much as FRAPS does.

I am not saying that FRAPS uberly slows them down but it does to some degree, you may not notice it because it is very small but it does pile up when you get under some heavy gaming, especially on low-end rigs.

Like said above, FRAPS XD

Just don't run FRAPS if you're doing a FPS test. Like in F.E.A.R performance testing or in 3DMark.
