Help with framerate glitch!

Recommended Posts

I have installed a new graphics card (Nvidia 6200 AGP - I still have an old setup) and suddenly I have a very strange framerate phenomenon:framerates constantly jump between approx. 5 and 50 FPS every 0.5 seconds i.e. 5 - 50 -5.2 - 51 - 5.5 - and so on. Always high - low and in this range - like a pendulum. Nothing else. It's driving me nuts already!!!Nothing else was changed and before I had 25 fps with all sliders to the right.Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? Here are my terrain and display settings from the fs9.cfg file:[DISPLAY]UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=0TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=400RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=1.1 // 1 or 0.6=rather dimRUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=1.1RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=1.1RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=1.3[TERRAIN]TERRAIN_ERROR_FACTOR=100.000000TERRAIN_MIN_DEM_AREA=24.000000 //16-25TERRAIN_MAX_DEM_AREA=96.000000 //4x min dem areaTERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL=20TERRAIN_TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=8TERRAIN_AUTOGEN_DENSITY=4TERRAIN_USE_GRADIENT_MAP=1TERRAIN_EXTENDED_TEXTURES=1 TERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=24.00000 //leave if ext_tex is onTERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=10.00000 //def/2TERRAIN_EXTENDED_LEVELS=10 //yr liking max=12Thanks!Sascha

Also being a new card and drivers and such, you may want to limit your FPS to say between 25 and 30. You will most likely get better results. In FS9, I keep my Framerate set at 29, and average around that depending on the situation. Unlimited setting in my rig would cause a big leap in FPS back and forth like you describe. Give it a shot. You will free up some resources as well by doing this. Every machine is different, so this may not help you, but I would say 60-70% it will. Hope this helps you :)

Thanks for the help - this glitch disappeared as mysteriously as it appeared. Must have been some kind of memory overload or fragmentation or just gremlins...Cheers,Sascha
