BF1942 graphic problems

Hi all,

I know that BF1942 is quite buggy etc etc...however I seem to be having a problem with very jittery graphics. My frame rates drop from 40 down to 20 or so regularly while playing.

I have tried reducing the resolution down to 800x600 and I still do not get smooth play.

By the way, I have a Geforce4 64mb, 512mb DDR and P4 1.7. My dsl connection gets me pings of about 40 so I know that's not the problem.

I have the latest sound and graphics drivers.

Any suggestions would be appreciated as I think I could quite easily get addicted to this game!

cheers,
N

I don't play BF1942... but apparently if you adjust the level of sound quality, you get a lot better performance in the game.

Try give that a try.

yeah i noticed if i disable all sounds i can get twice the amount of bots and double the framerate with no stutter and set to any graphics setting. So i am pissed offffff. Adjusting sound quality or having hardware accel on or off didn't do anything. I had to disable it altogether. Grrrrr where the hell is the new patch!!!

Could it be a background program, like a virus scanner or something thats timed?

Thanks for your help. Surrexen was perfectly correct...as soon as I turned off all sounds, everything was smooth with 70fps frame rates.

I may try different sound drivers, otherwise I'll just play with the sound off and hope that the new patch sorts this problem out.
