Huge fps drops...
« on: October 03, 2012, 01:47:15 PM »
I noticed this last night at the Vistani camp between Barovia and the desert, my normally 60 fps takes a nose dive in this area and locks up around 15 fps... is there a known culprit for this? Or, for that matter, a fix? My desktop isn't by any means a powerhouse but I can't see it struggling with NWN...

What if you go into the streets of Port-a-Lucine? It's not exactly slow for me in that area and the mist camp, but my mouse moves a bit slower in those places.

What is your video card make/model and what version of the drivers are you using? Newer video card drivers actually have more issues with NWN than older drivers do.

How can I determine my FPS?
“Moral wounds have this peculiarity - they may be hidden, but they never close; always painful, always ready to bleed when touched, they remain fresh and open in the heart.”
― Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

nVidia G100, most current drivers. I haven't seen any other weirdness at all, just slowdowns in that area.

~ key brings up a > character in the top left corner of the screen, then type 'fps' and it'll show you what your fps are.

That's probably why. That card and the current drivers aren't 100% compatible with the version of OpenGL that NWN uses so there are glitches, FPS problems and even cases where the video card will shut off (Google "nVidia OpenGL cannot connect to display error" for examples).
