How to increase game performance (fps)

Found this on the Rift forums
http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.php?68673-performance-fix-work-around

you will find a download link to a dx9.dll, this dll was used by people like me when playing fallout new vegas, this game used the same gamebro engine and version, and i had the same poor performance for my ATI, all you do is place this DLL in your rift folder and it will be loaded, you should see an instant frame rate boost.

it works for me, i hope if work for you, use at your own risk.

edit to add better links
NVIDIA: http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34778
ATI: http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34970

For Ati and nvidia> D3D9Gen_b3-34970 http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34970

use this, it will allow you to make a Dll with a selected card, i use a HD 5970, i asked it to make the dll for that card, i used this dll with the game and got even more performance out of it.


Just stick it where the rift.exe is and it should improve performance by a notable amount.
I was able to up a few settings and still get better FPS than I was before.

The 3rd link requires a nexus account as its bigger than 2mb, but apparently it creates a custom DLL file best fit for your set up.

Just tested with both the normal "fix" and the make your own dll, both instantly crash the game. Using a gtx460.

Edit : Deleted the game's rift.cfg in My Documents to give it a second try on fresh settings, now works and works beautifully, thank you for this nifty bit of information :D

I would have said OC your CPU just by changing setting in your BIOS and adjust your FSB Frequency.
I have a slow AMDx2 3800+ 2.0 (OC 2.3) and any extra omph really helps my framerate letting me run it in higher settings. For many AMD's you can increase your FSB Frequency by 20 without doing and damage and increasing temp by 5-10 degrees. If you are worried about overheat use PC Probe and it will warn you if it does or want to set a benchmark for normal temp b4 basic OC.
