Max Background FPS

#1SamTheMan88Posted 5/15/2012 2:35:06 PM
Maybe I'm missing something here, but why would you want to set your Max Background FPS to anything higher than 1?

If it's in the background., you're obviously not going to care about it's FPS...

Some background objects can move I guess? If you like having silky smooth branch animations you'd want to raise it.

When it says "Background" ... it's talking about the landscape.

"Foreground" is the player characters, the monsters, clickable elements, spell FX, etc.

So, for those of us who have a high-performance GFX card, we want a higher FPS for the background elements.

Uh, no. Read the description again. It's to set the FPS limit for when the game is running in the background. Such as when you alt-tab out of the game.

background = when you're alt-tabbed, what FPS do you want to set the game to.

I personally set mine to 10

Wow Tulki and Vixen, just wow. :| Especially Vixen, who shows no sign of "maaaybe I don't know what I'm taking about?"

XD

I haven't fiddled with the options yet or looked too far into their actual application, but I suspect they're there in consideration of people with dual monitors, who want to multi-task. Which, considering I'm one of those people, I hope my guess is right.
