OK I think this is a bit odd.
FPS: Constant 85
Same resolution as KOTOR
20-85fps. 85 when doing anything. The second I pull the trigger and hold it down the framerates lower to 20 slowly, as I run out of ammo. Stop firing, FPS goes back to 85.
Same resolution as above
60-70fps stress test at stock settings
70-120 FPS When hosting the server.
Athlon XP 2700+
MSI Radeon 9800 @ XT speeds
WinXP pro SP2
All drivers and such updated.
I just don't understand how select games run fantastic maxed out (C&C Generals) yet simpler games like Halo gives me that weird behavior. Anyone that can help I appreciate it.
