bf2142 framerate

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
playing the game on all low with 800x600 resolution...what kind of framerate SHOULD i be getting with the system that i have? (look at my system) This is one of the hardest games ive found to get really buttery smooth framerate on in any server/ situation. If i could get a steady 60-70fps on any server i want such as large servers with 64 player population (taking internet out of the equation of course) i wouldnt ask for anything else.

I tried buying an 8800GT and also tried a 9600GT but i returned them because they did not increase my framerate at all on low settings.

but then of course i find the problem which i should have known before

Use some benchmark test with PCWizard it showed that my processor (Pentium D 805) was a glaring weak point in my system. My first thought was to overclock but i cant do that because i have a Dell and all that.

Im just wondering what kind of processor can i actually get for my motherboard that it will actually work that would give me the kind of modest performance that i want? Because i found that even though i have an LGA 775 socket i cant install new core 2 duo processors because of some voltage issue and they have smaller transistors.

Any advice because i've played this game alot and sometimes bad framerate and stuttering has made the game much less enjoyable than it could have been. will get 15fps avg when on a loaded titan or 64 player servers sometimes when im in a dense area i will get that same kind of performance and im not exactly happy with averaging an inconsistent 30-50 fps on most conquest maps when they are decently populated

thanks

BF2142 shouldn't be that stressful on the CPU. Your current card should be able to play it at native resolution with all medium settings for 60+ FPS.

Do you have the same problems on a single player map against bots?

yeah if i play cq with alot of bots in single player the framerate will also drop. But you cant get 64 bots in single player but i will get poor fps on large conquest.

if im playing 8v8 on a small infantry map ill usually get a nice 60-70fps but the problem occurs when more people are on with 60 people i will have only 20-40 fps usually on the low side.

So.... what are your framerates with 2 bots? 8 bots? 16 bots?

I am trying to see if you are experiencing a massive CPU bottleneck. The 8800GT and 9600GT should be able to play the game maxed out.

16 bots in single player i will get 60-70fps. very nice

the 2 gpus i tried were funny because they played Cod4 maxed out with smooth frames but bf2142 they didnt improved my framerate but they just allowed me to play on higher graphics with similar framerate to what i would have on low. but it didnt improve my framerate on low settings. of course im looking for framerate here not graphics

You shouldn't have any problems playing all medium settings. Your cpu may hold you back a little but not that much. I can play BF2142 almost maxed out and do pretty well. I don't have any specific numbers but it's really smooth. Do you have the card OC'd?

Edit: Do you have vsync enables in game?

Ok, it could be "Optimized Shaders" are wrong.

Uninstall BF2142.
Delete everything in: \\\\Documents and Settings\\[username]\\My Documents\\Battlefield 2142\\Profiles\\
Reinstall BF2142.

I constantly delete my shader cache files. any time i change graphics or change them back i will delete the cache.

I defrag like every day almost just because

I have McAffee antivirus on when i am playing but it doesnt look like it consumes a huge amount of resources

i did a complete factory restore about 2 months ago.

I've reinstalled this game at least twice after the restore.

my gpu doesnt get hotter than 50-60C i dont think.

hehe me too! I started playing again....according to my G15 stats I have 500 hours logged on this game
Insanely fun game......the only game that beats it in fun factor (for me) is BF1942. I'm pretty sure I played that more.


To OP:
What other games do you play? What sort of performance do you get? I used to play BF2142 maxed at 1024x768 when I ran a CRT TV with an X1950 Pro 256Mb and an AMD 3800+X2 at 2.7 GHz.....I think I got around 45-60 FPS......that's a really rough estimate though. I know it was playable.

What type of Internet connection do you have? Are you running a Torrent? What's your ping?

Sometimes I get so pissed off with other players.... it seems like 3% of players actually know how to work in a squad.
i.e. I told a guy to cover me as I jump in the rail gun to kill a walker. He doesn't. I get knifed.
