View Full Version : When planes splash - computer slows way down?

I am sure this is in the config file, but I am not seeing it. Is there a way to reduce the effect when the planes crash into the water? The computer slows way down, almost to a stop until the splash effect is part way done. I don't want to loose any other effects, because my ATI 9500 Pro renders them just fine.

I have Photoshop, could I reduce the bitmaps or something to improve the frame rates on the splash effect?

Thank you for the tips. Fantastic game! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

What is the "effects" set to in your config? I had mine high, and had the same problem, then turned it down. Not sure which was the lower setting though.

effects should be at 1. Setting it to zero turns off the shadows under flak bursts etc and gives a little increase. Also turn off dither in il2seup.exe

What is the IL2seup.exe? I only have the PF. Would I be able to find the dither to turn it off there?
