Default Re: Some People Play Games Sub-10fps

I'm going to post random favorites for those who don't read the thread.

Here's one:

Quote:
EDIT: Just tried replaying part of the final mission at 800x600 fullscreen after modifying the video settings a bit and managed to get the fps to stay between 10 and 15 and the problem went away. Not as pretty as playing 1200x800 but it makes biotic classes a lot more fun.
The game is a lot more fun at the fluid fps of 10-15!

All these people should be playing the console version.

Problem is that I bet they are PC Die hard gamers. Its funny, I bet they also complain about the game being poorly coded or bugged because its consolized aswell.

Seriously, PC Hardcore Gamers need to realize, consoles aren't holding the platform back, poeple like this are.

It almost makes me wonder if some of the posts are from kids. I know there are some kids out there that are way smarter than me when it comes to PC's, but generally I would believe that a kid would be the more likely age group. Although, there are some adults that don't know much about PC's, my friend is one of them, if I wasn't there to help my friend out then he wouldn't be playing PC games and just be playing with consoles.

That thread is just beyond hilarious and sad at the same time.

Here's another gem from that thread:

Quote:
AMD Dual Core 2.30 GHz w/nvidia 6150se /3.00 GB of ram. Fps is 8. Ok, I did the 640x480, closed every program, jumped into windowed mode and shut down every option in the graphics menu and the nividia option menu. It worked! Then I get to a place (still in the first mission, Lab and Two guys are with me) where there's a computer, something on the floor I'm suppose to hack and another circuit board on the wall/door - and the blue box blinks once over the code hack thing on the floor and that's it. I can't pick it up. I tried for 3 hours but to no avail. So I'm hopelessly stuck - And quite angry I might add It’s hard to believe out of all the bright wonderful people with bioware that someone doesn’t have a solution other than what has already been mentioned.
