icecold, my game ran at a steady 55-60 fps on that D-Day board on the beach where you climb the mountain on a rope. It never dropped.. even with about 30-40 soldiers on the screen at once and gunfire all around you.
I would post some screens but I reformatted my computer when I switched motherboards this past weekend. But you're pissing me off so much with your bone-headedness that I might just have to fire her up with fraps again to prove a point.
And overclocking your processor CAN make a difference in performance in complex scenes. Some scenes are CPU-limited when you have several characters running around on-screen. Just what in the heck do you think runs the A.I. and physics in games? Your graphics card!?
