I have had framerate problems with my computer for a long time, now I am finally fed up and want to do something about it.
Unfortunately I don´t know enough about computers, so I hope that someone with a better understanding can give me some advice.
The symptoms look like this: a CFS2 mission starts out fine, but after a while, after the action starts the framerates slow to a slideshow, so bad that even controlling the aircraft becomes difficult.
This happens with missions that have a lot of aircraft, flak, fires on the ground after bombs have been dropped, etc. Also, if many of the newer (and good-looking) ships by Usio and the VN are involved, the outcome tends to be the same. Simple missions run fine.
I have the following system:
2,8 GHz, 2 CPUs
1022 MB RAM
Nivida Geforce 6200 Video, 512 MB
Could it be that this is just not enough to run CFS2 properly?
I noticed a recent thread here about the Vietnam project, where Dirtman recommended a 1GB video card and 3 GB RAM (what does DDR2 mean?) as a minimum for the upcoming Vietnam campaignsto run acceptably
Is it possible, and does it make sense, to upgrade an existing computer to these specifications, or is it better to buy something new outright?
Or could there be another reason for the framerate loss?
Thanks for any advice!
