My frame rate is killing me, I no longer dare to fly over even the airbase at smolensk because of the factories and buildings killing the frame rate! How can i fix this awful problem?

Lol short of buying an alienware PC you're going to have to tweak things a fair bit.

There is plenty of info in the technical forum on these boards and you could also try www.mudmovers.com (http://www.mudmovers.com) for some useful tips and, I believe, some set-up guides.


Very roughly:

> get the framerate counter on in game (press SHIFT+TAB and then type "fps START SHOW" without the quotes)

> people tend to have better framerates from running the game in OpenGL rather than Direct3D, though this is card dependent. Try that.

> Play around with different resolutions and different quality settings in game.


Outside of the game, tweak the control panel for your card. Texture quality will make an impact but anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing should both be off in order to improve your framerate. You may be able to re-enable one of them when you have things tweaked elsewhere.
