Is fraps wrong.

  1. I'm running Battlefiend 1942 Secret Weapons of WWII Demo, and I decided to use fraps and measure my performance. I was using a 733MHz processor, 364MB of ram, and a integrated 64MB Intel graphics chip. I ran FRAPS 5 times on the same map, and got a score of between 14-12 fps. My computer is old, and Battlefield doesn't look pretty, but would the game even be playable at that speed? Hard to believe. I really need a new system.

    Also, where do you look to see how hot your processor is running? Thanks.

    To see your processor's temperature, download Everest Home Edition.

    Now, with that PC and *graphics chip*, that's normal. I'm amazed you can even run the game. So no problem there, it's as fast as it'll go with that Intel thing.

    What I meant is the game actually looks decent and doesn't seem all that slow. Are the scores wrong? It seems that if the game was playing at 13fps, I wouldn't be able to control it. I actually can control the game quite well. Also, Everest Home Edition just closed on Dec 1st.

    There's still places where you can download it :p.

    The scores aren't wront, your game is running at that speed, and you can handle anything around 15 fps.
