How do you improve your fps's?

Post by deadman3108 » 23 Jul 2007, 03:45

do any of you here change any of the numbers in the FS CFG to make your fps's run smother?

I'd actually be interested to know this too. Any way to improve framerates without sacrificing detail I'd like to know.

I remember a while ago there is a line that you can add in there to improve ground textures, although I don't know if it improves Framerates.

Code: Select all

[DISPLAY]
UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=28
TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=100
TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=10
[TERRAIN]
TERRAIN_ERROR_FACTOR=100.000000
TERRAIN_MIN_DEM_AREA=10.000000
TERRAIN_MAX_DEM_AREA=100.000000
TERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL=19
TERRAIN_TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=8
TERRAIN_AUTOGEN_DENSITY=5
TERRAIN_USE_GRADIENT_MAP=1
TERRAIN_EXTENDED_TEXTURES=1
TERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=3.500000
TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=4.000000
TERRAIN_EXTENDED_LEVELS=232


I think some of the lines are missing in the normal FS9.cfg and some of the number need tweaking.

I tried that, but I couldn't get it to work. I must have done something wrong.

I thought it improved my FS, although it may have just been a phsycoloical thing that made me think the textures were better.
