Windows 7 and low FPS

Question

Hi guys

 

Well, since a month (more or less), I can't play ET because of very low FPS (15-20). It happen when I installed Windows 7.

 

I use the last drivers for my graphic card and my ethernet card (include ton my motherboard) and I updated punkbuster. My ping is stable.

ET.exe is running as an administrator. I tried to use compatibility mode (of Win 7) to lauch ET.exe. I defined XP SP3.

 

I tried to use default cfg instead of my personal .cfg, but always the same problem.

 

I even tried to play with a clean installation, without patch... always low FPS.

 

I didn't use anti-virus nor firewall. I install Antivir few days ago.

 

 

 

I really don't know how to fix that.

 

So, if someone can help me, I'll be happy. :yahoo

 

:thanks

Well, I format the computer before installing 7. And I already use the latest drivers available.

Oh ok ! I didn't understand that ! :rolleyes:

 

But, with this GC and Vista, I had no problem. Why now with 7 ?

 

There is no other solution ? :/ 'cause I realy don't want to buy new one... to expensive for me now...

Hey yama,

 

i had the same problem with low FPS on windows 7

the solution to the problem was right clicking on both pnkbstrb.exe and pnkbstra.exe

clicking on the compatability tab ..and checking "Run this program in compatability mode for Windows XP (service pack 3)"

hit apply and close it.

try that.

if you dont know where your pnkbstrb and pnkbstra files are...

just hit the start menu and search for each file there.

let me know if that works for u , it worked for me.

Better but... no ! When I don't see players, I have a stable FPS to 76, but in fight, I only have 20-25.. :/

 

Maybe stupid question but I install BF2 and I have no trouble to play. Is that normal ? (I just install and play offline. I didn't modify options).

I would say update your direct X and graphics driver. Your card is good enough to run the game and system with around 50 FPS with low resolution and graphics.

 

Also, try to assign the affinity to your ET.exe and see how it works.
