Default Halo numbers

I'm just curious as to everybodies numbers in Halo.

Here's mine (Max Halo detail, no AA, no AS, Image Settings: Quality):

800x600
2200MHz, 1024MB, 64M nVidia GeForce3 Ti500 (DeviceID=0x0202) Driver=6.14.10.4523 Shader=1.1
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo\halo.exe -timedemo (Version=1.0.1.580)
Frames=4700
Total Time=124.69s
Average frame rate=37.69fps
Below 5fps= 5% (time) 0% (frames) (6.752s spent in 11 frames)
Below 10fps= 5% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 15fps= 6% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 20fps= 8% (time) 1% (frames)
Below 25fps= 17% (time) 6% (frames)
Below 30fps= 38% (time) 22% (frames)
Below 40fps= 55% (time) 38% (frames)
Below 50fps= 79% (time) 66% (frames)
Below 60fps= 92% (time) 84% (frames)
Memory used Max=164MB, Min=131MB, Ave=151MB


1024x768
Date / Time: 10/2/2003 2:03:38 PM (4077984ms)
2200MHz, 1024MB, 64M nVidia GeForce3 Ti500 (DeviceID=0x0202) Driver=6.14.10.4523 Shader=1.1
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo\halo.exe -timedemo (Version=1.0.1.580)
Frames=4700
Total Time=205.09s
Average frame rate=22.92fps
Below 5fps= 1% (time) 0% (frames) (3.352s spent in 7 frames)
Below 10fps= 5% (time) 1% (frames)
Below 15fps= 16% (time) 7% (frames)
Below 20fps= 37% (time) 23% (frames)
Below 25fps= 57% (time) 43% (frames)
Below 30fps= 82% (time) 72% (frames)
Below 40fps= 97% (time) 93% (frames)
Below 50fps= 98% (time) 96% (frames)
Below 60fps= 99% (time) 96% (frames)
Memory used Max=163MB, Min=131MB, Ave=151MB

To get the benchmark add the -timedemo switch to your Halo.exe. It will dump the results into timedemo.txt in your Halo directory.

I have a 2.1ghz setup with a ti500 as well... I'll shoot some numbers onto this thread tonite...

You might wanna specify your nvidia driver settings, and your halo IQ settings as well, so we can be on the same page...

Edit: Scratch that first thought, this belongs in the Benchmark forum.

To be honest, I don't like the way Halo does its benchmarking. Instead of giving you some concrete frame rate numbers to work with, it captures your scores over time. I wish it would break down low, high and average scores in each of the scenes, much like [H]'s UT2003 benchmarking program.

Sorry didn't know there was a bench forum.

I'm running max halo settings.

Nope. You just happened to post while I was typing.

The "-timedemo" mode is not accurate, gearbox said so themselves. They are going to fix it in the next patch, but for now you should just use fraps and play around a few levels for a little bit.

Seems kinda low to me since I have a faster processor (P4 3.06) and vid card (gf4 4200 128mb ram) than you function 5. Are you sure you didn't do any other tweaking?

Hey man, you have particles off, this is not max seettings.
The real score (with everything on) will be about 3-5% slower.
