I am having problems with FPS, which is very slow and makes the game quite unpleasant to play. Main menu and everything before the actual in-game content are running very smoothly. I'm guessing somewhat 15-20 FPS. I really need to know if this is normal, since Sacred 2, for example, runs very fine with very smooth FPS.
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1
GPU: GeForce GTX 260
CPU: Intel E8400 (Dual-core; 3,6GHz clock)
Mobo: ASUS Striker Extreme
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda x 2
Thanks in advance!
i'm having the exact same problems as this guy. i have the exact same hardware except my Mobo is a P5QL Pro and different HDDs.
Fraps tells me that i'm getting 30 FPS in the menu. 30 FPS fully zoomed in and 30 FPS zoomed out. it's almost as if it's locked @ 30 FPS.
i've tried setting CPU affinity to Single Core, this did nothing
i've tried lowering the graphical settings and disabling FSAA, this did nothing
i've tried Compatibility mode, this did nothing
i ran it as administrator, and this did help, it upped my Zoomed out FPS to 30, but nothing more than that. an unfortunate side effect of this was the game didn't recognize any of my previous saves. when running as admin, i had to start a new game.
the game is playable, but i wish i could get higher frames out of it. it seems odd i can play oblivion at 1360x 768 and average 53 FPS, but i can't do so in Sacred.
love the site by the way!
