FPS <<<<

Hi,

I recently bought a new laptop & installed ET etc.

This laptop is more powerfull than the one I had before but I have less fps.

Way less, as I had 125 constantly on my old lap.

Now I only have 15-30..

No spyware etc
could it be because of vista?

30
1 core 4 et

and yes vista weaks your powerful laptop
Didn't say it was powerful, but it's at least more powerfull than the one I had before.

I downloaded the fifa 08 demo yesterday, and it runs smoother than ET..

When I start ET, everything runs smooth till I connect. (I mean, the intro vid etc)

My point being, if my laptop isn't powerful enough, the introvid would struggle and my mouse wouldn't go so smooth.
I had a shitty pc before and if it's not powerful enough, the introvid, menu's etc wouldn't run like they do now.

SO I think it's not the laptop, rather a setting or smth?

-run as admin
-compatibility mode: server 2003
-settings: disable visiual theme's..

All with rightclick on et.exe you can find it there

I just tried those things, doens't help.. thx anyway
Parent
if you think its a setting run et with the default cfg or with a tweaked config
Parent
not becuase of vista, but might be because of low gfx
et is almost only cpu based
Parent
everything is almost only based on cpu
Parent
you got a point there ;)

i got same fps @ vista ( 333 stable - all maps ). shouldnt be the problem.
cores dont divide mhz
pc > lap
cuz vista ..
Don't have enough money for a pc atm.

I'm surely gonna buy one again in the future - just not now.
vista did the same to me :<
/com_maxfps 125
only use 1 cpu and not 2 (taskmanager -> rightclock on ET -> showing permissions (?:o) -> CPU 0 (yes) CPU 1 (no)

Hope u understood it ;D
I'm with you till the 3rd step - showing permissions??

dual core T2080 1.73 mhz radeon xpress 1100 1536 ram

right click, and click on the alst menue. There u can see which CPUs u want to use... and only activate the first!
Parent
last menu = Go to proces here..
Sure it has to be done in taskmanager?

If you have too much time, could you make a screen of it? :)

Would be the easiest way..
Parent
dont got dual core here on my workstation@work :S
Parent
No but I mean.. A screen of the menu you mean? :)
Parent
image: taskmanagerlj9

sry that it camo to late but i dont got dual core@work and it only functions with dual core. The nexxt step is that u only activate the CPU0 and deactivate the CPU1
Parent
When I tried that, it says Access Denied?

I'm logged in as admin btw..

(Sorry that this came so late)
Parent
hmm, try to make a new account with admin or try to log in with the accoutn "Administrator" and none pw. If that also doesnt help i cant help u anymore imo :<
Parent
Specs please mate.
Nice nickfake.
install gfx drivers with openGL support.
Under Vista ET runs almost as smooth than under XP. And my notebook is 2 years old with Pentium M 1,86 and Mobility Radeon X700.
I installed the newest drivers wich do support OpenGL =)
