ut2003 runs like an atari game
ill first lay out my system and card
Nvidia Gefore 4
64MB 400mhz ddr
Dual 350mhz RAMDAC processors
core clock 270mhz
ive installed the nvidia drivers and edited my
Xfree86 config file the driver and card works
fine while running x it even plays soilder of fortune decently but like i said ut2003 runs like an atari game
im stumped any idea's would be great
Can you post some FPS numbers?
The GF4 MX series cards are not all that fast (seeing as they're NV17 cores), and UT2003 is quite a new game... my Ti 4200 (NV25) only gets ~60fps max, and ~10-15fps min.
I believe you can still do a stat fps in UT2k3's console to get FPS numbers.
i was swaying back and forth between 5-10 mostly low numbers 5 6 7 rarely hit 10
my old ati Rage 128 32mb card played ut like a champ but wouldnt play sof at all now this new gf card plays sof like a champ but wont play ut2003 i cant find ut to try it with this card :(
OK, is AGP enabled? What mode? Check /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status for that.
Anything in the kernel logs?
Is MTRR support enabled?
High quality sound a killer :D
I've recently been searching for performance in UT2k3 as well, for reference my system:
2.0A P4 512 ECC RDRAM
Creative Audigy Gamer
GeForce 4 Ti4400
Running RedHat 8.0 (2.4.19 cust)
and the infamous x4191 drivers :D
The short story for those who want better fps:
Disable High quality sound, or all sound, and check your fps. Running low quality sound I average ~45 fps everywhere at 1600x1200 max quality settings. Yes, it still spikes low ~20 in areas, the engine doesn't seem to be perfect in handling the map designs given. :mad:
How do you disable high quality sound?
Edit your engine config file at: ~/.ut2003/System/UT2003.ini
under the heading...
you may also wish to adjust settings here.
I was running extremely low fps ~15 and lower with typically low fps areas running up ~45. I found that this behavior was independent of my graphics settings entirely (640x480 low = same fps as 1600x1200 maxed). That means its not graphics hardware related.
Performance charting cpu / memory / swapping etc shows the system is not under heavy load, ~60% cpu load with 1~2 processes waiting for cpu time (vmstat).
Now sound running low, the system keeps up ~45 fps with intense settings, and UT2k3 looks great :D
agp is enabled but its set at the speed of 2x
what is mttr ?
and im going to try turning off high quality sound i forget to mention the sound is kinda wierd it sounds like ... well you ever here one of thoose computer voices ? lol
i should have looked into the sound thing before i did here them say on tech TV once that you're sound can slow down a game big time even if you have massive hardware
well it clearly seems like a sound problem although i could still do with better FPS low quality sound didnt do much for me
but when i turned sound off at first i was averaging 15-20 then i was stable at around 17FPS hitting 20 every minute or so
