View Full Version : FPS in Pearl Harbor

02-11-2008, 12:19 AM
I was at a friends house who was playing SH4 with ROW installed and his sub was sitting in Pearl Harbor. His FPS was 7. My question is - isn't that a bit low? I don't know what graphic card he has but was just wondering if 7 FPS is low as you are sitting in Pearl just looking around with the camera?

In Pearl there are LOTS of ships... it is some good load both on the CPU AND on the video card... I don't know what rig your friend has, but 7 FPS are very possible on certain machines, especially when sitting in Pearl

One of the things about Pearl Harbor is like Sparhawk mentioned. Being a major base thare is plenty of activity. Numerous ships moving about and also planes flying overhead. I've got a 8800 GTX and I would always see FPS drop way off when I got close to Pearl. Had alot of CTDs when trying to dock with the v1.3 patch I remember.

Thanks for replying. His computer froze up and crashed when he was getting ready to leave Pearl when using Row for the first time.

FYI, my rig is:

Intel Dual Core 2 Duo 6600 @ 2.4 Ghz
2 Gb Ram
Ati HD2900 XT

When I'm in crowded situations (such as, those single missions where a US and IJN task forces meet) I do have slow downs on external view.

And when I approach US ports, I do have slowdowns also while being on the map screen
