View Full Version : A Silly Fix

Well I'm not sure how well this will transfer to others rigs, however I often get a major FPS hit in things like bad weather or high concentration of ships, or using the periscope.

When it first happened I thought some program like norton or some spyware kicked in. So I paused the game, minimmized SHIII, opened task manager to check out my cpu usage, saw nothing and re-entered the game. After which the game was back running smooth.

So now when I start getting the bog down I pause SHIII, minimize, open QTM (not sure if this is even neccessary) and than resize SHIII and continue playing.

And it works, like I said, silly.

The game needs to be scrapped and re-released!

IIRC Alt-Tab'ing out of a game resets your AA and AF settings back to default (ie: off). This is why you get an FPS boost.

This trick has been used by the LOMAC comunity for the same reason for a long time now.
