    First, get 6.47 drivers.

    Set skin and texture detail to medium, set decals to false and set color depth to 16 bit.

    Then this

    VolumetricLighting=False
    ShinySurfaces=True
    Coronas=True
    HighDetailActors=False

    Hey Face... try this... and turn your player models to medium. And weapon flash off. I think those two things were KILLING me. I had the same issues in game, serious bog down. And believe me, every time it happened I was begging for my Voodoo3 back. So far it's doin okay.

    VolumetricLighting=False (I may turn this on if it makes fog)

    UseMultitexture=True
    UsePageFlipping=True
    UsePalettes=True
    UseFullscreen=True
    UseGammaCorrection=True
    DetailTextures=False (this will bog you down bad)
    Use3dfx=False
    UseTripleBuffering=False (this might help me if I enable it)
    UsePrecache=false
    Use32BitTextures=True (I think this is faster with it on - if you run 32bit game)
    DescFlags=1
    dwDeviceId=336
    dwVendorId=4318
    Use32BitZBuffer=True (same with this)
    UseVertexFog=False (not sure if this will just gimme fog)
    UseAGPTextures=False (I'd keep this off, but experiment)
    UseVideoMemoryVB=True
    UseVSync=True

    Good luck!

    Just about Asus

    One good reason not to buy Asus.I will never buy another Asus product again.It's not the fact that they are shit[they make good product's]it's only the support i'm pissed about.I bought an Asus M/B and e-mailed them about 5 times asking if there are any bios updates,and never got a reply.So I say fuck them and fuck their products.We are merely Pawns,they don't care about us at all...,,,

    thanks alot guys i was hopeing your sugestions wouldnt be to turn the detail down

    my old voodoo2 would get better fps then this (48 avg everything off 28 fps everythign on )

    i just figured it should do better then that all the reviews i seen they were getting 70 fps in 800x600 on 500 mhz systems and im here with a 700 and its sucking really bad

    im starting to wonder if i have a bad card or what

    anyone know of a way i could test that?

    thanks again guys

    detonator 6.47 drivers

    min max avg
    18 63 36 thats with fsaa off (slider all the way to left)
    22 63 37 2x2 fsaa (i know it doesnt make sence)

    asus v533a divers

    min max avg
    20 64 37 fsaa off
    23 61 37 fsaa 2x2
    20 62 38 fsaa 4x4


    it just doesnt make sence to me i thought fsaa was supsoed to have ahuge performance hit when in some cases it acctualy gained a few fps

    when fsaa was on the typed text and the text on the menus looked strange like some letters were darker then others but other then that it looked great you could see the difrence inthe ut logo

    anyone have any sugestions


    as always any help is greatly appreciated

    Settings seem good. I'd look for the problem to be coming from the AGP end of the game.. Sounds like you're not getting any HW accelleration.

    What do you get when you run dxdiag.exe?

    i fired up dxdiag and i did all the tests and they all worked

    then i tryed disableing direct3dacceration and i restarted and ran a benchmark and it didnt change anything it was within 1-2 fps does that mean its not getting any hardware acceleration??

    then i tryed disableing agptexture acceleration and i restarted and ran a benchmark and there was a huge performance hit


    does that help anyone to identify my problem?

    With UT being extremely CPU dependant and D3D being a heavier API to run than 3dfx glide, you are probably not going to get much more fps than you do right now as long as you are running a Celeron.
