Unplayable because of low framerate.



  • Fine, first of all I apologize for this. As I said, I’ve been updated on any possible tweak to improve game performance, and I have not any lack of general knowledge to do it. I could not make it improve, so I was really angry and couldn’t hold on. Wrong behaviour, I’m sorry.

    You asked for my specs and dxdiag, and I’m putting them.

    I run the game in a fair bad computer, but not as bad as to make it go at 5 fps, at least if you compare it to other games, and not as bad as some gamers claim their computers are. My specs:

    AMD Athlon 64 x2 2.1Ghz
    3GB RAM
    Asus EAH 4670 1GB DDR3
    Windows 7 64 bits

    Every driver is updated.

    Now, details of this trouble:

    • Game running perfectly fine 'til someone appears on screen. Huge fps drop as people appear.

    • Lowering the settings doesn’t seem to affect performance to any big extent. I can gain some bare 3 or 4 fps when in big battles. On the other hand, it does good when there is no character on screen - going from 30-45 fps on medium settings to 90 fps. I try playing in low res - 800x600, windowed mode.

    • Some tweaks can, in fact, make the game run worse. For example, tried the Megapost thread solution and ran into lower framerate.

    Anything else, just ask. Thanks for reading.



  • You get 5fps? I have a really bad computer, (for someone that games as much as I do) i play at the highest resolution supported by my monitor with all graphics options on their lowest settings and consistently get 50-60fps, and the game looks fine to me.

    Upgrade your rig dawg

    Man, I get almost 90 fps when a map is empty. The fact that is dropping to 25 fps when there is someone on-screen and then 15, 10… as you add them, makes me think it’s not my computer problem (which is fairly bad but still can run much more better looking games), but a game design problem :/

    Repeating people to upgrade their machines is not the solution, not from my point of view.



  • I’ve occasionally had FPS problems in this game despite having a pretty good rig, but nothing like what you’ve described. I’ve also never heard anyone say the game is unplayable because of problems like this.

    Something definitely seems wrong, but I’m not sure it’s a problem with the game.



  • If it’s lagging because of other players, might be an issue with your CPU or memory?
    Can you post a dxdiag?



  • sell it on ebay! oh wait steam… maybe it is your only steam game? well in the future if you want to possible resell your game on ebay like the good ol days make a new steam account for each game.



  • Lol I tried to trade it off on steam, but didn’t realize that you could only trade GIFTED games. No wonder it seemed too good to be true D:

    Definitely your computers problem, maybe update your video drives. I have a laptop and a average video card and I get around 50fps with not much difference however many people are on-screen.



  • Thanks for the all the raging and swearing towards the devs, I’m sure they really appreciate it.

    While you’re at it, get those wealthy, experienced studios who made all those games you listed to throw some money and resources Torn Banner’s way, I’m sure they’ll really appreciate that too! (Especially as this is their first game as a tiny indie studio who were working remotely).

    I can imagine it is frustrating but without posting even a dxdiag (I’d have thought an engineer would know to list specs, especially to back up an inflammatory argument), there’s not much anyone can do to help you unfortunately.

    For the record, this runs on my almost EIGHT year old (now my bro’s, I have a new beast) machine quite fine, even on high settings. He had a bit of an FPS drop on Citadel and Frigid when they were first put in, but even then nothing unplayable. That machine is running an Intel QX6850 (3 ghz), a Geforce 8800 GTX, and 4GB RAM btw.



  • Technical Support is that way –>



  • What are your specs.

    dxdialog and logs?



  • @Andrew:

    dxdialog

    (ppssssst. it’s dxdiagnostic not dxdialog)



  • Argh, who put the redirect linky thing on this thread! Don’t do that! :P



  • Updated. My apologies again.



  • You’re considerably below the listed minimum CPU requirement.

    System Requirements
    Minimum:

    OS: Windows XP
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2.7 GHz
    Memory: 2 GB RAM
    Graphics: ATI Radeon 3870 or higher, Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or higher. 512MB VRAM.
    DirectX®: 9.0c
    Hard Drive: 7 GB HD space
    Other Requirements: Broadband Internet connection



  • @ReMixx:

    @Andrew:

    dxdialog

    (ppssssst. it’s dxdiagnostic not dxdialog)

    All the cool people say dxdialog 8-)



  • i was def thinking it was his cpu, just because of the issue i’m having (totally my issue only) with one of my radiator fans failing. Just the one cpu fan allowing my cpu to get a little hotter than normal causes a big fps drop for me, but luckily i have new fans on order.

    I would think that your cpu is failing you in the gaming department.
