I got the Beta key the other weekend and was looking forward to playing. I booted up and had frame rate issues right from the start.. The battle areas are basiclly unplayable. I'm running BL2 pretty well on medium settings, has anyone else had any issues running the game? I have a 460GTX 750mhz OC'ed to 830mhz, maybe the card is just too old for it anymore.
Does this run bad for anyone?
Hmm, I occasionally dip below 20 fps but that's only when battles get stupidly huge, the rest of the time I'm at floating around 60 fps... You should probably post this on the official Planetside 2 forums if you haven't already, and keep in mind that it's still a beta which means they're working on performance issues that will hopefully be stamped out by release :)
Did you tried the usual stuff?
- make sure your running the latest drivers for you graphics card
- defrag your hard drive
- close unnecessary background processes
Also at what resolution are you trying to run it? the game seems fairly scalable, lots of graphics options for you to fiddle with, though the game seems really taxing at times, specially when there's a lot of dudes on screen and shit blowing everywhere, it will sometimes dip below 40FPS for me, and I have a GTX 680.
