View Full Version : CoD problem...please help?

I have a problem with CoD and my Geforce FX 5900
First here are my basic specs:
P4 3.06 533 1gig RAM
GeForce 5900 FX @ 425x910
Audigy 2 with latest drivers
WinXP all patched up
Drivers tried 45.23 and 52.16 (latest)

My FPS drop dramatically when AA is used with looking at a light source!
Settings: All on optimal default for test and at 1024x768

2X AA only with no aniso. filtering.

First training level:
Back to “sun” object (not looking at “sun” object)
FPS = 200FPS
Look at “sun” object:
FPS = 28FPS !!!!

On first level when attacking the house:
Look close at flames from house:
FPS=24 !!!

With no AA here is what I get:
No “sun” = 200
Look at “sun” = 125
Look at house flames = 60

So, something is really wrong, actually with both AA used no AA.
It seems to have something to do with the lighting effects.

I have tried all the settings and tweaks I can think of and I had this same problem with both drivers!

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

I do not have this problem with:
Tron2.0, MoH or BF42 or any other games I can think of.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Just with 2xAA it nose-dives that much in framerate? Something seems odd about that. :eek2:

Yeah, I know, and I can't seem to fix it no matter what I try. :(
I've never seen this problem before so I was hoping maybe somebody else could help me out?

More information...
Tried CoD on a P4 1.7 system with a 4600 card using 44.03 drivers. Had the same problem! This is a totally different system with different drivers and I ran my tests and noticed the exact same ratio in FPS drop!
Something is up and it isn't local on my system.
Any ideas?
