Is there a way to see how much FPS you have in Splinter Cell?


And how do i (in Windows XP) change to an older NVIDIA driver? I have the file for the driver i want, but how do i uninstall the other one correctly first?

( I wanna change because i heard the older drivers work better on GF 4 cards, and also about that Shadow Buffer thing.)

Control Panel / Add or remove programs, scroll to find the nVidia driver entry and uninstall it. for the FPS thing, I know of no command within SC that will give you that. But you can get FRAPS (http://www.fraps.com/) and run that.

While in the game, hit f2 and when the type comes up, type "stat fps" and hit enter (no quotes).

ok.

But is there any reason i should NOT change to the old 43.45 drivers? Any negative sides? Are there some good things with the newer drivers that i miss out on? I would like some tips.

(i have a GeForce4 Ti4800SE)

(and last, are you able to see my Avatar. I`m having some problems with it.)

You can read all the release notes for each driver release to see what is enhanced / fixed. The short version is you lose some performance, maybe 3-5 FPS depending on card and system. Some DX9 functionality is improved with the latest version like Pixel shaders and such. None of that affects SC in a negative way. The main concerns are other game requirements. Oh, and there is some slight improvements on decoding for video in the latter versions.

It'll probably slow your card down since it's a fairly slow card anyway.
