Getting 1-2fps with original tracks.
I'm still struggling to work out how to explain this, so bare with me.
Ok, when I load up any car on any of the original tracks, I get everything slow. Not just the racing, but also the menu screen. It runs at 1-2fps, and even clicking on buttons eg: race, it takes a while to respond.
Now on any new track that has been created eg: mid ohio, I have no wait time on the menu and my fps is 70+.
I have tested this issue on the lowest possible graphics setting and up to the highest. The only thing that changes is my good fps.
I'm very confused.
computer - intel i7 870, nvidia geforce gtx470, 4gb ram, windows 7 32bit.
Any help please, or even someone having this same problem?
Your OS (Windows 7 32bit) is running out of RAM. You should upgrade to Windows 7 64bit and some additional 4gb ram wouldnt be bad too.
RAM consumption for rF2 + Original Track = 1,9 Gigabyte
RAM consumption for rF2 + Mid Ohio = 1,4 Gigabyte
You can check it in task manager.
Thanks for your reply Tosch.
I was expecting some comment about my windows 32bit, and have already been considering changing to 64bit to ramp up my ram anyway.
My main issue is that I have run a little test.
I checked my memory usage in task manager and it is about 2.8gb in monaco using the 60s gp cars.
If I am just racing on my own (not online), I have my original problem.
When I go online, it runs fine. approximately 70 fps around monaco.
Sounds like a software problem (drivers?) too. So if you are considering W7 64 bit, you get a new install, right? Install all over again and looks to me, 99% chance the problem is fixed anyway.
It should run on 4 Gb ram anyway; I did that with W XP and didn't have that tear drawing performance......
I have the same problem since beta was released... Sometimes the game loads fine with max fps, and sometimes I get 1-2 fps after loading..
