Bones Posted July 23, 2018 Report Share Posted July 23, 2018 (edited) So i have an old card (nvidia geforce 9600GT 512mb) and besides the vram being on the brick of death at ~500mb with only having 0ad open (i am on linux mint tara and cinnamon seems to take about 120mb of the vram), i get very low fps even below 10 with the default settings so i am trying to experiment with them and see how it goes so if someone has too an old card i would appreciate seeing his graphics settings Here are some changes i made -disabled shadows, seemed to have helped a lot with fps -from water i only kept water depth and water refraction (disabling reflections seems to have helped a lot), disabling water entirely is eye cancer and i didn't notice a considerable boost on fps to make it worth it And that's pretty much it, now from top to bottom i don't know what these settings do: -prefer gsl and fog, they were enabled, i left them so -post processing was disabled, i don't know what it does, would it help with fps if i enabled it? -shader effects, less effects for higher fps? what would be the cost on the looks of the game? -smooth LOS, should it be on or off to help with fps? -show sky, i don't know what the point of this is, camera is top down, how can the developers see the sky? -vsync is off, would it help fps if it was on? -the last 2 throttling setting? how do they work? it says putting it on max disables it and that if it is on it helps with the CPU, so why not have it at min? how do these 2 settings reflect on fps?
