radeon 9700, runs fine, but a bit slow compared to other games..

hi, first of all I would like to say that the game DOES run on my 9700 but for some weird reason I think it is running slower than it should.

I run all my games @ 1024*768*32bit except for Z-Buffer which I always leave on 24.. All that with 4xAA and 16xAF (!) and VSync OFF. Using the new ATi 3.5 Catalyst drivers and new VIA chipset drivers on XP PRO oh and DirectX 9.0a.

Hardware: Asus A7V266-EX, 512MB DDR266 CAS2, Club3D Radeon 9700, SoundBlaster Live! 5.1, 80GB Maxtor 8MB cache 7200rpm UDMA133, 40GB IBM DeskStar 7200rpm UDMA100.

BF1942 runs an average of 75FPS.. HoverAce seems to run closer to 30, with an occasional couple of seconds of near 15.. Both games have all settings at highest possible setting. Other games like MS RalliSport Challenge, which is also a damn heavy game, still run better..

I'll give turning off Hardware T&L a shot, but why do we have to run T&L it on the CPU? It's kind of a shame if you have such a good card.. I've seen HoverAce run much better on a Geforce4 Ti-4200, which is an inferior card compared to mine.

Can't you fix this problem in a patch?

well i turned off hardware t&l the game runs just perfect now..

couldn't you implement a little script into the game which just checks if you are running a radeon card and auto-turn-off hardware t&l?? it would save a lot of people the hassle of having to try and fix their game..

don't forget most people think something sucks the first time round when it doesn't run right. i know, they're stupid, but hey, gotta live with their ignorance. i've got plenty of friends like that, and you've already had a lot of posts like that as well. they try once, oh no it doesn't run good, this game sucks! they even have it with hardware.. this guy on gamespyarcade bought a radeon 9800 pro and said it sucked and was ready to bring it back to the store and change it for a geforce ti-4600!! i helped him tweak the shit out of his system and now he wouldn't want any other card.. but they are just too stupid to RTFM and learn to actually USE their computer instead of learning patterns of button clicking to make something do something..

people, learn to tweak your freaking system before you start bitching!!

hihihi got a bit carried away there

anywayz, great game guys.. except maybe a bit too repetative.. reminds me a lot of the old classic [link]http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=1538[/link] DeathTrack
