Tweak BF2

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I know there are thousands of things out there about tweaking BF2, but I'd like to hear of something from people that has actually worked for them. I can play DOD:S at 1024x768, everything highest, including AA/AF, and still get 80+fps in all parts of a map....In BF2, at 1024x768, all medium settings, I get about 60fps, and massive drops. It hasn't always done that, but I've tried reinstalling and everything. I've crashed my coptor so many times because of lag! any help?

It's your CPU. Your profile says it's at 2.1Ghz? Thats not enough for that card at all. Can your cpu be overclocked more? It should be able to...

yeah, my pings are fine..I've had my FPS showing, and it drops to 10-15 a lot. I figure it has to be something in BF2 since I have no FPS drops in DOD:S with everything at its highest. As far as my CPU, I know it's bad, and I want to get a 3700+ soon, but don't have enough money for it right now. I don't think I can overclock my CPU anymore, as its very hot as it is. I've thought my cpu overheating could be the problem, but again, I assume the same thing would happen with DOD, but it doesn't, so I don't know.

What temp does it run at? Also I run it at like (I think, it's been a while sice I have played) 1280x1024 with high settings and w/ 2x aa, and it's fine, but even though my video card is slower I can do that probley because of my cpu, although I think you should get similar results even though your cpu is choking your video card.

What kind of FPS do you get in a single player game? Are you playing with other ppl with high ping? Are you playing 64, 32, 16? What is the FPS on those size maps? Boxers or Briefs? Have you checked your FPS on an EA server? Answer these questions and we might find an answer for your troubles. Hopefully an anwser that points to the servers and not you.

I haven't played single player. . As far as I know, people have normal pings, I don't pay too much attention. I usuaully play on 64 servers, some maps my fps is worse than others. boxers. I haven't.



ALSO: I play teh demo sometimes, because a couple of friends only have the demo, so I play with them. I play demo at 1024x768@all medium, and get fine fps..very few fps drops, but in the normal game it is what it is above.

OK lets break it down. You need to look at pings of other players when you are having trouble. I have noticed that when ppl have high pings (150 and above) I get crappy play. You also like to play on large servers that have alot going on with alot of ppl. This can cause lag and bad fps as well. With 64 ppl on a server someone if not more than 1 will have bad ping and can bring everyone down. I noticed this got worse with 1.12 and has not gone away with 1.2. I think this is oone of thisngs EA is trying to fix...maybe.

I am guessing you or one of you friends hosts are server to play the demo or are there still demo servers up? This may go back to the 1.12 introducing the lag like I said above or it means that your friends have good ping. Try an EA server and see what happens. Try single and see what happens. Try a smaller server that is not EA and see what happens. I know I get this trouble to and I know it is not my system causing it. It may also be you ISP. I have thought many times that SWBell might be the cause of my worries but I have tested it and get 1.5MBps. Try what I have mentioned and see what you come up with. I know this was not a complete solution to your troubles but it is start.

Yeah, theres still a lot of demo servers up, and the lag issues, I haven't had until the 1.2 patch. I always had a little lag here and there, but I think it was connection lag, but since 1.2 I get a lot of fps drops, so i thought maybe there were some possible tweaks to make my game run as well as it can until maybe it gets fixed or something
