Default Re: Vanguard: FFA PvP Server

Last I heard Xion,

The reason it doesn't have a performance hit was they changed it so Vista would disable it when you ran some applications. You can watch this happen with media player classic or other windowed apps.

I'd say try it before gaming for the heck of it, and if it doesn't make a difference with Vanguard's performance, skip it. I didn't notice much of a difference outdoors and Hathor Zhi did seem smoother with it off.

Later I'll try it a few more times back and forth off and on to make sure.

Hathor Zhi @ Highest Quality with 16 x AF @ 1680x in the large main room with many players was dropping my FPS to the mid 20s when I would look across it. Now I am averaging in the mid 30s doing the same.

Go down into the crafting room when it is full of players and stand in a rear corner to look across it towards the door if you want another decent test.
