P4 2Ghz (Northwood)
80GB (Seagate Hard Drive)
GF4 TI4200 128Mb
Win XP Home
Now I know that my GF4 card is getting of a bit, but I can still run flight sims like LOCK ON and PACIFIC FITHGERS with decent frame rate at good settings, but PES4?
If I go above 800 x 600 and Med Graphics, I get a shimmering effect or frame skipping? is that right? when players run they look as though they are vibrating and shots seem to go in stages, Im no techie but frame skipping I guess would give the game at times a keystone cop feel.
I was just wondering if anyone else who has a GF4 TI4200 128Mb (and or less than all of the above) has the same problems going over 800x600 or I get the same effect even if I stay at 800x600 but go for HIGH graphics?
The only way I can get it to run smoothly , is to set it at 800x600 MED.
My friend PC got the similar config with your PC, P4 2.4Ghz, 1Gb ram, GF4 Ti4200 128mb, sometime his PC will get video lag in some stadium (for example: Juventus stadium), so he turned down to 800x600 and Med quality, then the problem gone.
My PC P4 3Ghz, 1Gb ram, GFx 5900 128mb, run smoothly at 1024x768 High quality. TBH, yes higher resolution and quality will made the game looks much nicer, but I can't see a big different between my PC and my friend's PC, maybe I'm too concentrate while playing the game :P
Btw, I found that if you turn on 2x Anisotropic Filtering, the game looks much better, hope that help
try to overclock your video card. i have an ATI radeon 9600 pro, and i had many slowdowns, in cinematics, in 1024x768 HiGH. After i overclocked it, game runs perfectly. i used to overcloked it Rage3DTweak.
how do you guys turn on aa and af?i used to use radlinker and noticed no real diff,then i had probs with radlinker so deleted it,i use the ati control panel now but still have jaggies even with 6aa and 16af
I know it will be my video card that is the let down on my system.
All I was wondering was why? , PES3 ran at HIGH and 1280 x 1024 and PES4 if I put it above 800 x 600 or put it to HIGH graphic I get this frame skipping.
There doesn't seem to be much difference in the 2 games, either to the players or the stadiums, in fact player wise the players in PEs3 I think look better , not only that there hair moved in PES3, the stadiums look about the same..
Can anyone tell me why there is such a big difference between the 2 games, why does my video card handle 3 much better than 4.
overclocking can boost your video card's performance but unless u r confident that yer card has a good cooling system do not over-overclock yer video card....if it gets damaged you cannot trade it back or RMA it......i would say if you have a GF4 Ti u should slowly(2MHz at a time) overclock it using Powerstrip or Riva Tuner(search google)......
