    QB Uncons Vehicles bug?

    The Uncons are a bit of a disappointment. Partly because of the lack of vehicles in QB, and partly because of the lack of diversity (seeing 40 plus guys all wearing the same tracksuit top). Considering how easily the diversity was modded in the last game (I created a dozen variants in less than a day)

    Ok, so that particular CPU boosts up to 3.6Ghz. I would regard 30-35 FPS as ok, in that context. Basically the performance is CPU limited, for all of us. It runs on a single core, so the faster the better. You might notice the stutters less if you use Nvidia Inspector to limit the frame rate to 30, and set vsync on. You will get fewer peaks and troughs. Be thankful it isn't Scourge of War Waterloo - I get FPS in the teens at times and that is with a 8600K @5Ghz and a GTX 1080 !

    What sort of frame rates are you getting? I would expect 20 to 30 on that kit, on Best settings. Over the years I have had GTX 580, 680, 980 and now 1080. It makes little odds, it is the CPU that has the biggest impact. I think your CPU turbos up to 3.9Ghz, which is middling.

    Bad performance

    Please change thread title to "good performance" It is worth limiting the FPS to 30 in the Nvidia settings and then enabling vsync, you will get fewer peaks and troughs which will make it smoother. Frame rates will respond well to overclocking (you should be able to get your CPU to 4.2Ghz without much effort).

    both
  7. Disabling MFAA won't do anything, the game has to support MFAA to enable it. CM doesn't.

    Demo crash

    I presume everyone in this thread is aware of the "Shaders On" crashing the game if you have Nvidia drivers newer than about December 2017 ? There is quite a lot of detail in one of the other CM2 Technical threads. Tends to happen after about 30 mins play.
  9. What other people have been saying is that CM doesn't benefit from additional cores. That is absolutely true. It just needs as fast a CPU frequency as you can throw at it. There is no downside to a 6 or 8 core for CM, so long as it is fast. For that reason, my recent upgrade was to a 6 core 8600k which is overclocked to 5Ghz. It is a decent improvement to my previous 4 core 2500k @ 4.7Ghz. Performance on Best settings is generally acceptable, but undoubtedly the least performant game I own. I leave shadows off.

    Yes, but the UI will not scale so it may be hard to use.

    No, it's a 32 Bit application. So the maximum memory it can address is 4GB (on a 64 Bit OS)

    Why? It is post processing. It will make your text blurry, but will still work. A better result can be obtained by injecting SMAA via SweetFX

    You will still have a low powered Intel GPU in it.

    game crashes after some time playing

    If you disable shaders, install War Movie Advanced Mod, and enable Movie mode, you will not be able to tell the difference. You'll have no more crashes though

    Switching off shaders definitely fixes the crashing. If you use the War Movie Advanced mod it looks just as good, IMO.
