Hi all I€m new her so please forgive if this has been asked before €œI have done a search but didn€t come up with anything€

When you are outside and inside of the sub and looking around, what kind of FPS do you guys get?
And what does it drop to when there is a lot ships around.

Please answer it will really help me.
Thanks

See you all on the sea€s ss_Rage2005

Outside, maybe up to 120 FPS. Inside, maybe 70 FPS. The PC is a 3.0 GHz P4, 1 GB DDR400 RAM and X800Pro. Running 6xFSAA and 8xAF.

Hi.
First off , welcome to SH3 forums.

I get 24-5 FPS constant.

You can get your own frame rates by doing Ctrl F8 in game.

22 is about average and 30 well good whilst 35 is pushing a top ace machine.
Source of into from a benchmark site.

I got 120-150FPS outside on open ocean with a few boats around. Haven't checked inside, but it will probably sink. In ports i only have 50FPS, don't really know why. Maybe it's the chicks that throw roses.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

RedTerex, how come ur FPS's are so low? 30 fps is for a top quality machine? i know im just misunderatanding something,especially if every1 else is getting 130etc.

Well with the benchmark for PC games site I visited it gave 35 as top ace !

Ok...even with "low" FPS I have to say that I dont lose any frames and its not like a slide show, its very smooth and uninterupted.

Is 130+ FPS any different from 30 FPS if you already have smooth effects with no bounce out and glitching..I think Not so maybe the benchmark site was right !you could have 2,000,000 fps and still have the same as 30 FPS if you reach the ceiling display rate of the game..this is usually unspecified but would be around the 30-40 FPS mark for 100% smooth animation.

Above 30-40 FPS and it goes into a class of its own its called...hype !

Motion pictures at the movies are all at 32 FPS btw !

BTW and its a big btw...(by the way)
My PC is always online, as it internet shares with another PC, IE6 is always "alive" as is virus software, anti-spam and anti Spy software.

I have other stuff ticking away in the background as well to support the above mentioned...this all effects my systems recources on "what I can have "


Nock all that lot off and I will be up to 3Billion FPS !!

3 billion?thats rubbish.

I only heard about this FPS thing recently. i was playing Counter Strike and i have this friend who is obsessed with dowloading things and ****ing about with folders and files etc.

he had me spend nearly an entire day trying to improve my FPS(i didnt even know what it was) download catalyst drivers, config.exe files, in the end it improved it by 20 Fps or so. But the game now looked terrible!!water was murky, dead bodies dissappeared.i hated it.

I turned the settings back on.

Lmao he sounds like my friend, he made me do the same to get super frames. Messed my computer up though he did get an extra 15 fps.

I switched them off back to the old settings and when he comes round he is like "wow looks lot better since we did those extra frames dont it!" i say "yeah" **s********

I always wonder if he gets annoyed with his tv having low fps, and the cinema...

vsync: Our sim runs in ogl and vsync is an option in your cards control panel. When enabled, the maximum FPS you can have is equal to your refresh rate. LCDs as a rule run at either 60/72Hz. My CRT has a refesh rate of 120Hz at 1024x768, which is the games native resoution. CRTs should have higher FPS than LCDs, but that doesn't mean better visual quality.
When vsync is disabled, the FPS is as high as your hardware can deliever. Sometimes this can lead to image tearing.

AA and AF: As these are increased to render a higher quality image, FPS decrease.

Monitor type, vsync, refresh rate, and image settings are all factors that have a direct influence on FPS. Hope this makes some sense to you and explains how there can be such a wide diversity of settings and results.

Steve - I thought SH3 was DirectX, not Ogl?

Regards,

RocketDog. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>That may very well be the case. If so, the above on vsync does not apply. However, if run in directx, why would one need a directx 9 compliant video card? It is my understanding the pixel shaders are a function of ogl, not directx. However, this wouldn't be the first or last time I've been wrong about something.

Please, please, PLEASE... avoid the old "but you only get 25 / 30 fps on a TV and it's smooth enough for me" argument - it's completely and utterly irrelevant. TV & video film naturally blurs, or "merges" frames thru movement & the general "analog" nature of film, whereas computers output every single frame digitally perfect, so there's no transition between them, meaning you need something in the region of 70 - 100 fps to get a similar visual "smoothness" as you would on TV.

Yes, you can absolutely notice the difference between say 60 and 30fps. Your eyes CAN see greater than that.

Once you get above 100+, it doesn't really matter anymore though. You start getting diminishing returns above 60fps, but there is certainly a difference.
