i presume you went into the advanced settings --> and turned every thing down there as well?
you could use the console to completely remove grass or other objects. dunno the commands off the top of my head. maybe "tg" (toggle grass) --- http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/soldier/Wudien/stats/356609841/ FC: 2852 8152 9579
Thanks for the tips. So far, here's the things that have made it run better:
-in the fallout.ini file (my documents>my games) i changed this option from 1 to 0 bDoSpecularPass=0
I did that, and it ran MUCH better. as a result the game looks a lot more flat, but it's a good trade-off
another thing you can do is run the game in 640x480. it will look mighty bad but for the sake of performance it might help someone.
to do it go in the falloutprefs.ini file (same folder as fallout.ini) and change iSize W and iSize H
...... It plays more or less okay now but still not perfect. I wish I knew a way to disable the fire effects cause when the fire ants attack me that's when the framerate drops completely. --- http://i.imgur.com/1CL7bOR.gif
Time to upgrade! its black Friday season - you should be able to find some really good deals over the next month --- http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/soldier/Wudien/stats/356609841/ FC: 2852 8152 9579
Download a program called Razer Game Booster, this shuts down background stuff on your PC that slows down your games and doesn't need to be running while you're gaming. That's really helped me run Fallout 3, New Vegas and Skryim really well. Hell I can barely run Skyrim on the lowest settings without it, but with it I can run it just fine on medium settings. --- I am a dedicated member of the "Walter Sullivan Is Bad-Ass" group!!!
