Poor Morrowind performance.... on a 6600gt?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just installed Morrowind and the expansions (I've never played it, and want to before Oblivion comes out) and I've found that at maximum settings, the game stays around 20fps outside, even on hardware that can run FEAR at almost maximum with 35fps? Am I doing something wrong, or is that normal?

I ran Morrowind (and expansions) on a 9700 Pro, and the only issues I had were with scenes that had tons of shadows (large battles and one or two specific creatures). Based on that, I would think you settings need to be tweaked a bit as a 6600gt should have more than enough power to run that game well.

Well, I'm certain the resolution isn't the problem (especially considering there's no AA) and the dynamic shadows don't affect the fps much... the view distance does, but I really can't see that far even at maximum.

The fps lows are only outside though, inside I get around 40 -50

I played the game on a 9600SE, and it ran well. Your card should handle it with no problem. Maybe tweak some settings or something? I ran the resolution on 1024x768. Weird.

Yeah I did tweak and it's smooth, although outside sometimes it drops around 20 -15.... could it be that it's not really configured for future hardware?

Well it is a very huge world. My 9600XT coughs on it a bit but it only drops into the 20s. Usually its around 40-60fps outside and around 100 inside.
Very nice!

That's odd... I'm running at the resolution above 1024 x 768 (11something by 8something) with real time shadows set near high and view distance to maximum, and pixel shading on.

Is there AA in this game? I'd turn it down to 1024 x 768 is the aliasing wasn't so darn horrible.

I think its better on future hardware. My previous card, a FX5200 ran it horribly and that was with shadows turned off.
Very nice!

One thing to keep in mind, the Morrowind world is huge. In any given area outside your gonna have lots of polygons getting rendered. With my old 9600SE I could walk through Seyda Neen and get 25-35 fps, then added a docks mod I made and would only get 6-7 fps. Because I added a bunch of content, like ships, docks, warehouse, more NPC's ect. Ofcourse my 6800GT rips though the game like nothing, with 100+ fsp out side and 250 inside!

If the game play is smooth I wouldnt worry about it.
I have games that play above 35 fps and are chopy and others that play smooth as silk at 20 fps, its just the way some games are.
