Very very slow performance

Recommended Posts

Windows 7 64,I5 @3Ghz cpu,8 gig ddr 3 ram,2xATI HD 5870 GPU,OCZ 220GB PCI-Express X4 Revo Drive SSD.

12-25 FPS if i choose the lowest graphic setting i get 15-40 FPS,why is this game so poorly optimised ,also there is hardly any graphic settings,there needs to be more options.IE shadows:low,med,high.Draw distance:near middle far.Textures ultra,high,medium,low ETC all graphic settings should be separate so you can tweak and also find the setting that is causing the slowdown.

Same with sound no options for sound provider/renderer no speaker option,i can play some of the most graphic intesive games around at 60fps and im struggling to play this at all.I have the theatre of war Kursk and run it at full settings 40+FPS.

I believe that CMBN is more demanding on the CPU rather than the video card. Might be an explanation.

But my CPU is fine its a I5 760 3ghz quad core more powerful than some I7 CPU's look it up on CPU reviews,it cant be my CPU mate,i know your trying to help and i do appreciate it,but my CPU is not the weak link cheers any :).

well it was coded for a MAc....

You didnt say your display Res, and run BOX if your using AA. May even have to set that to 16 only... But CF is problematic on OpenGL games (this one for sure).

As for your CPU, well 3ghz is the lowend for AI intensive games, If you could (you can.) go to 4.0+. Still this game needs a CF profile from AMD and the Dev.

Last; 11.6 is a much better driver than 11.5, actually 11.6 is the best driver since 10.1~

Im running at 1920x1080 i have found the problem (which isnt my CPU ;) ).Its the shadows if i turn the shadows off it jumps to around 30+ min FPS so the shadows are poorly optimised imo,im also running the 11.6 drivers and have CF disabled for this game.Its not CPU/AI bound as the game doesnt get any slower the more thats going on its the same for tiny battles and big battles,but alt/w the shadows off and it triples the FPS.

An i7 CPU should be destroying CMBN!

First install latest VID drivers. Then check soundcard drivers.

I suspect that there is a process running in the background which is eating up CPU. Have you looked at task manager? (ctrl-alt-del). Sort on CPU usage.

Try switching off ALIASING - if this improves rates then the vid driver is to blame and should be looked at.

I had a process called "NMIindex" which is part of NERO DVD burner.

This was dragging EVERYTHING down. I stopped and disabled the service

and now everything runs super fast.

Well it would seem that its the shadows mate,if i turn them off with alt/w the game speeds along at 30 fps min,if i turn them on it crawls to its knees at 12-15 min.

The game does not use multicore processing... and yes it is CPU intensive, there are multiple threads on both the CPU performance issues, and also how to configure your GPU for optimum OpenGL Vid settings

I know it doesn't use multicore and my motherboard has the ability to run the CPU as 1 core,2 cores or 4,none of which make a sleight bit of difference.If you have a link to these threads i would love to read them as the ones i can find seem (Mostly) be be Nvidia and AMD CPU's and my spec is intel and ATI cheers.

Err... no. The CMx2 engine, and CMBN as well, was originally coded for Windows, and then ported over to run on Mac OSX.

Some of the coding work was done *on* Macs, but that's not at all the same thing.

Well which ever it would seem and this is from other posts ive read that the shadow are poorly optimised,more options in the graphics section to allow people to change things like shadows from high,med,low grass,draw distance ETC would help alot of the problems people have.Im sure some of these are in the fast balanced ETC but you cant tweak them individually which leaves you with either fast poor graphics or slow great graphics.In my case the ability to turn the shadows down but not OFF would mean still having shadows but increasing the FPS.

Also as im sure others have maybe said adding multi-core comparability would increase the FPS a lot on a CPU heavy game,2 of my friends have been put off buying this after seeing how slow it runs on my system and like me they play a lot of War/Strategy games.If battlefront would even consider these options i for one would champion this game to all my friends and as a business more people means more money which is only a good thing for them ;).

CMBN is quite sluggish for what you get graphics wise, but the figures you give for your spec are way lower than they should be.

Depending on the map size i get 20+ FPS at max settings with shadows on, yes i get a massive increase in FPS with shadows off but there is definitely either something wrongly configured in your system or it just doesn't like your system
