OK I am having SERIOUS FPS issues in NS 2.0
When I played 1.04 I got around between 45 50 FPS around the marine structures, 50-75 without them on screen. Now, in the presence of ANY marine structures, no matter how few, my FPS drops from 50(without them) to anywhere between 2.3 and 5.6 FPS. This problem only happens to me when I am a marine, it doesn't affect me when I'm an alien, and it really REALLY annoys me because I can no longer play comm, build resource towers, or communicate with my team mates using the Voicecomm Channels, since they can only hear a few broken up sounds of my voice. Should I just reinstall NS, or do I have to go into the console and reduce the detail level? I'm upgrading my computer from a 32 bit 3D card to a 128, and from 128 RAM to 640, will that help me out at all?
Thank you for your time
