FPS!!

HellBent

I made one post
Hi..I am wondering how to up my fps in game. right now i'm getting between 18-40. I have an older graphics card though. I have a gforcefx 5200. Can i improve the fps??
 
Errr, might be me but I only get good fps when my settings are maxed out lawl.

Low = 8-23 fps
Maxed = 33-97fps (on average)

- most likely his cpu will bottleneck the 7600 gpu if it's as old as I think it is.

You should try an fps config - create 'autoexec.cfg' in your dod cfg folder and paste the following in the text file:

*Side note... the fps config above will make things look uglier. You can further boost your fps with mat_picmip 4 instead of 2 as above... but it'll look like you're playing in a playdoh world (and is highly illegal for league play).
