Looks like your card is overheating... Have you tried disabling FW or going back to stock clocks? I had this issue when I ran the game on 8xAGP since my motherboard has a crappy AGP slot.

Yeah, I just turned FW off before my last venture out and I haven't seen the spikes. With FW off it seems to be a lot smoother also.

Very good detailed on how to customize display settings to get great performance without sacrificing quality

For the most part after a full defrag and on 66.93 my system runs very well except in towns I have to turn everything off..but that is to be expected.

Keep in mind this game was designed for systems that are not even out yet to make it more future proof
This Guide that Ghosthunter , found is very good actually , explains alot of settings and following by suggestions , helps eliminate much unnecessary overdraw , and gives tips what effect eat up moust of FPS , that would be Shadows , Specular Lights ect .
Following all tips , i gained better quality and more FPS , with AA and AF.

Just another tip I was reading about is to go in to msconfig/startup and just turn everything off, reboot. I did this and the game is running great but I still think the game needs some work instead of jumping through all these hoops.

ok here i foudn something interesting..my temps barely go up when playing EQ2 even at 1600x1200 with a lot of high quality settings


How is that possible? I get around 61C, when my normal just running in windows without running any games is around 57-58, but when I played doom3 or most other games I hit around 83-85

WTF is wrong with that game? I read that people can play that game on balanced setting on a 9800 PRO.
I'm running a 2.6gigs AMD 64 1GB RAM and a 450/1200 6800 ULTRA and no matter if i set balanced or high or very high the game goes to 15 FPS and below as soon some more people are on the screen or i'm fighting.
My system is fresh installed and i'm using 67.02's.
HL2, Doom 3 and many other games run smooth as hell.

FRUSTRATING!

Edit: Ok i followed this guide and it was very useful. I managed to get my framerate up quite a bit without loosing much detail. Shadows have an enormous impac on the framerate but i tend to leave them on since it looks so plain without them. If you have serious FPS trouble they can help you getting playable FPS though.

Shadows seem to be the biggest frame rate killer in gaming and turning them down in most games improves performance quite a bit without giving up too much IQ.

Shadows and flora. I run with both off. It's a bit frusterating at first but once you get a few hours in you don't even notice, or at least you forget about it.

Just another tip. Do the msconfig/startup thing and turn everything off, reboot and play off the fresh startup, helps out. With that and going by that guide I play really smooth ,unless their is major action.

The game does need some major patches imo though.

I'm not sure about win 98 but with XP you can turn all of them off.

Well I keep my computer clean both from adware and viruses ect ect and I can safely say that with my system the game performance sucks major ass. I was in beta though so I knew ahead of time it was running like ass but I had hoped they would have optimized it further which did not happen. If I can't get a constant 30+ fps things are unacceptable. I play as a healer and these low framerates even on the performance settings makes it hard for me to heal effectively. I pretty much gave up now on SOE ever optimizing any engine they release. They have a history of this for the person saying don't blame the engine. You sir are wrong and the engine DOES need further optimization.
