I just started TF2 up after a long long time of not playing. All the new stuff is rather overwhelming but that's besides the point.
I am having a piss poor framerate when action gets tight!
I've got a better PC nowadays then I had a year (and a half or so) ago when I was still playing like a madman. And back then I was having good framerates.My set up now is:
AM3 Motherboard from Gigabyte
AMD Phenom II 925 @ 2,8Ghz a core (standard)
OCZ 1066Mhz Ram 4x1GB Stick
Asus 650 Watt PSU
ATi Radeon 4870 512Mb from Club3D (picked this one up mid 2008 when they were brand spanking new)Back in 2008 when I got a fresh PC:
GigaByte MA790X-DS4 (AM2+)
AMD Athlon X2 6000+ 3,0Ghz a core (standard)
OCZ 2 GB DDR2-1066 (@800Mhz)
OCZ StealthXStream 600W
ATi Radeon 4870 512Mb from Club3D
Has the game been pimped so much that it has to drop below 20 FPS during explosions and such? Plus I'm running other games just fine, the likes of the new Battlefield game and such.
The in-game settings are much alike as they were before:
No HDR, Simple Reflections, 4xMSAA and 16xAF @ 1680x1050, High Quality textures and so on.
I also run in full screen windowed mode for fast tabbing out. I am aware that this taxes the performance quite a bit but yet again, this was no issue before.
I probably should try to re-install the game completely, off to do that now!
If anyone has any thoughts on this little problem of mine, please do share. Thanks in advance
