  1. Hi there, I have a problem with Guild Wars. I get like 7-17 FPS all the time. I run at 1440x900 resolution, I use an nVIDIA 7900GT and have over a gig of RAM. I dont get what the problem is. The high resolution is new, I used to run at 1024x768 when I had my old CRT moniter. I had the FPS problems back then too, so it cant the the resolution. I get minimal lag as well.

    Changing the graphics/sound/game settings to 'improve' performance does nothing to help. As of typing this post, I am using the -image command line to try to download ALL images used by the game to reduce download times on loading images.

    I have a massive house fan blowing directly into my case, so it shouldn't be a heat problem. That was suggested by the Official support team as their closing statement after failing to solve this issue. Didn't work.

    I am lost here, I loe the game, but I cant play with this kind of low FPS. Even Oblivion runs better than this. And that game is a freaking BEAST!

    I don't use a router, but thanks for the information! Or does port forwarding help non-router users in some way also?

    What kind of ping are you getting? There's a small dot in the lower right corner that shows it when you move the mouse over it, it's either green, yellow or red.

    And which CPU do you have?
