Default Re: Some People Play Games Sub-10fps

I had a friend who had some sort of ancient hand cranked machine, he couldn't even play World of Warcraft above 15 fps, and had to avoid some of the larger cities or the game would crash. Yet he was a really good player.

Need for Speed Motor City Online same, I was in the beta, and couldn't even play it because beta had some error in code that on P4 system it would either crash or run at 1-2fps.

never was fixed in beta.

We are so freakin spoiled on these forums. Most of our systems will run this game at super HD resolutions, maximum settings, and won't EVER drop below 60 FPS.

Seriously, I can't understand why people don't get why their slow computers won't run this game well. It's seriously beyond me... and asking bioware to fix the fact that the game won't play properly under 10 FPS? REALLY?!?!?



I'm colonizing Mars tomorrow. Anyone want to join me?

Oh yeah? Well, my 5950Ultra beats it by "80"- which is really more like "120" because it's "Ultra"

Seriously, PC Hardcore Gamers need to realize, consoles aren't holding the platform back, poeple like this are.
Actually, I believe it's a combination of the two; whether it be mostly to people like this or the console I don't know. I do firmly believe that both are responsible.

Congress should fine PC gamers who don't upgrade their GPU's regularly.

That'd be one way of paying for this Health Care bill...

But probably not enough income alone. They'd have include a tax with the fine.
