Anyone have any other suggestions than what I did for Ravellidar? I'm not that smart with gaming problems. This is a conversation we had on IRC [01:23] <Ravellidar> Alrigty....I got Wolfenstein back in late December [01:23] <Ravellidar> I install it just like any other game. I know the Q3 engine very well too [01:24] <Ravellidar> My specs are Athlon XP 1600+ with a Geforce 3 and an Via KT266 board and all [01:24] <Ravellidar> So I go through the deal with the latest drivers for each [01:25] <Ravellidar> Got the Via 4.37 and the Audigy updates and all. And everyone knows the deal with Nvidia boards and finding the driver set that works with your system and all [01:25] <Ravellidar> So finally I got everything just the way my computer likes it. [01:26] <Ravellidar> I load up Wolf and set it up at 1024x768 with max detail....cause we know Geforce 3's are more than able to handle that [01:26] <Ravellidar> Then I start messing with my wolf.cfg [01:27] <Ravellidar> I know that hunkmegs and all that allocate a certain amount of ram. I set that to 192 [01:27] <sngx1275> everythign cool @1024x768 before you play with wolf.cfg? [01:27] <Ravellidar> Soundmegs too. I set that at 32 [01:27] <Ravellidar> I figure I am rockin. [01:27] <Ravellidar> Then just to be sure, I set my /com_maxfps to 200 so it wouldnt limit my framerate [01:28] <Ravellidar> I make sure that my v_sync is off in both my driver page, and in the wolfenstien options [01:29] <Ravellidar> Then I start playing and type in the cg_drawfps 1 command and it says 43 [01:29] <Ravellidar> I am like WTF???? [01:29] <sngx1275> lol [01:30] <Ravellidar> So I check to see if its the same outside as in the hallways, and it says at 43 as if its capped off that way or something [01:30] <Ravellidar> No matter where I am whether running through empty halls or fighting in that forest level, it stays at 43 as if it cannot go higher [01:31] <Ravellidar> So I figure to myself, that the refresh rate bug was only a bug that limited my framerate to 60. You know what I am saying right? [01:31] <sngx1275> was everythign cool before before you edited wolf.cfg? [01:31] <Ravellidar> It would set your monitor to the default refresh rate of 60z [01:31] <sngx1275> yeh [01:32] <Ravellidar> Yeah, It was fine and all before I touched my wolf config [01:32] <Ravellidar> It loaded up and played and all [01:32] <sngx1275> what happens if you change it back to way it was [01:32] <Ravellidar> But I couldnt for the life of me figure why it would choose 43. I would figure it would choose 60 or 85 or something [01:34] <Ravellidar> Thats the kicker. Whether I play at 800 by 600, 640 by 480 or even go up to 1280 by 1024, it would always choose that magic number of 43 [01:34] <sngx1275> ha, what happens when you change wolf.cfg back to normal? have you tried that? [01:35] <Ravellidar> Yeah, I deleted my wolf config and let it create its own and it would choose 43 to run it at and stay capped at that [01:35] <sngx1275> the one it creates is the same one before you changed anything? [01:35] <Ravellidar> Then I completely uninstalled the darned thing and reinstalled [01:36] <Ravellidar> No, it creates the default from the cd when you delete it [01:36] <Ravellidar> But the best part of this is coming up man. Let me finish bro [01:37] <sngx1275> alright, I have a suggestion but it might change [01:37] <Ravellidar> I start thinking this has to be something about that refresh rate thing I read about, but that makes people display stay at 60 [01:38] <Ravellidar> So I choose to look at my refresh rate anyway, and I see it there in plain sight at being at 85hz [01:38] <Ravellidar> I wonder why would it choose 43 when the thing is at 85 [01:39] <Ravellidar> So I do a little math in my head and figure out that that is exactly half of my damned refresh rate [01:39] <Ravellidar> Why would it do this? [01:39] <sngx1275> yeh 42.5 + 42.5 = 85 [01:39] <Ravellidar> Well not exactly half LOL!! Give or take .5 for rounding up [01:39] <sngx1275> ok, have you uninstalled. restarted. opened up regedit searched for any keys that deal with Wolfenstein, and/or whatever company makes the game [01:39] <sngx1275> then restarted [01:39] <sngx1275> then reinstalled [01:40] <sngx1275> after searching for keys deleting them of course [01:41] <Ravellidar> Ah, no I didnt think about deleting registry keys. I am kinda antsy about messing with my registry if its not of dire need, but i guess this would call for it [01:41] <Ravellidar> I will do that and get back to you [01:41] <Ravellidar> Tomorrow after work I will see about the registry keys [01:41] <sngx1275> I've had stuff needed to be deleted before before I got things workign again. um, you can be safe with deleting stuff if you take a good look at the path [01:42] <sngx1275> if it seems iffey on if you need it or not keep it [01:42] <sngx1275> and see if problem is still there [01:42] <sngx1275> if not = golden [01:42] <sngx1275> if problem is still there you have to hope you are right.
