    Default Re: low fps in tremulous

    My friend that runs windows has a GeForce 8800 GT(X?) has great FPS at all times in tremulous, I've only got a GeForce 7600 GS and a Pentium 4 3 GHz and I've got low FPS. It might be that tremulous is quite CPU intensive, what kind of processor are you running?

    You're comparing a quake engine based game with a quake 3 engine based game.
    Nexiuz is plain death match and doesn't have all those animated structures that Tremulous has. Do you have low fps if you're alone in let's say the corridor in the map ATCS?

    I can only say that the Human base gives me a lot of lag, might be due to the structures being animated or particles flying.

    After a few minutes with google I found this thread Backport Lags
    Basicly, grab your client here

    This really worked great for me and I think that I'll be able to play again!
    If you need further instructions on how to replace the binary just shout

    Emulation of missing GPU features is likely to cause a steep increase in CPU processing time. In these cases, I usually just disable the feature.
