I wish there was some way I could make the game run at 4fps just to see what it's like.

What are games where you can set a framerate?

Quake 3 Arena had a max framerate if I recall.

Actually easiest way to do it is to run fraps and set the video recording at 4 frames a second and start recording. (might be limited to 10fps minimum)

WOOOW It is hard for me to play anything if fps drop below 50-60. And 30 fps on pc is almost unplayable for me.

Good I got a console to play some games... and not to BE ABLE to play games

btw. I think I should have my voodoo somewhere around. that crappy 8800 dont play anything!

try underclocking your card to lowest level

I remember you could set a maximum framerate on the Quake 3 engine (RTCW, Quake 3, etc.). In console the cvar is com_maxfps.

I use to use it in RTCW. Turns out the Quake 3 engine has some funny quirks where if you set your framerate to 125 or 333 you can jump over things that people at lower frame rates can't.

You better learn to read

I said it "feels" smoother than 30fps on pc. This is fact.
Simply more motion blur and slow analog movement makes it seems more fluid with low framerate... Jeez Nekro. You are getting a pain in the ass recently

truth hurts?
