View Full Version : low fps

January 24th, 2010, 17:44
i had an amd athlon 1900 + geforce 2mx computer before, which ran dk1 at 60 fps but now i bought amd phenom 2 720 with radeon 4850 and my fps went down significantly. I am at a constant 16 fps for some reason. I tried "-fps 60" and it increased to a constant 40 but everything is faster so it's useless. The game is incredibly annoying and unsmooth at this low frame rate. Anyone knows what happened? I thought if you buy faster computers your fps is supposed to increase..

usually that would be the case. But dk1 is a diffrent game. it seams to like old computers better.

Have you tried getting keeperfx? it might help. If not, I would suggest going back to the older comp.

(also, try runing in 98 compadiablity)

Instal Windows98 in a virtual machine (downlaod Virtual PC for instance) the game runs very good that way. :)
