no, that is not normal. i run it at 1280x960 4xAA 16xAF with gamma correct AA, TAA on super sample, and i dont see anything less than 50 fps ever.

Burnt_Ram, next time you go into slow-mo, look at your FPS. Yes, it's normal.

You're truly missing out then. So what if the framerates drop when you kill a guy in Slo-Mo? I never really noticed it as such because... well... it's in Slo-Mo. FEAR is one of the funnest shooters I've played in a very long time. A very long time.

because the mouse lags like all hell at 15 fps.

no, its not normal, i never drop below 100 fps.

i just did an hour long run through to verify.

if you are getting drops to 15 fps, you've got problems.

nope.

i ran through 4 levels to make sure.

going into slo mo had no effect at all on my frame rate.

ok, i exaggerated a little, 102 is as low as it gets in a fire fight with out slo mo.

slo mo cuts it to 84.
still a far, far cry from the 15 fps others are reporting as "normal".

the graphics in ur pics seem like u have a lot of settings toned down, unless the retail version looks worse than the demo.

All setting at max, except soft shadows.

i wasnt trying to take pretty screenshots, just action shots where i could quickly find them.

if you want i'll get you some "pretty" screenshots later.

im just trying to find out why my performance is so much lower than urs, i run at slightly higher res and with 2 more samples of aa but that shouldnt give me 1/5th of ur framerate.

tweaked
12-24-06, 09:25 PM
you run xfire?

xfire and fear are NOT compatible.

if its not Xfire, something else in the background might be killing you.

i'll run with higher AA, either later tonight or after Xmas and report back.

16x AA 16x AF 1600 x1200 all settings max except soft shadows.
I was firing the auto cannon as fast as possible to cause as much lag to slow it down as much as possible.

this is as slow as i can get the game to run on this hardware with out turning soft shadows on.

i dont understand why my fps drops so low in gunfights. my cpu isnt overclocked but i doubt it would make such a staggering difference.
