    Question [Help]Low FPS

    Hey everybody, maybe someone can help me with this.

    I play bfbc2 on my laptop, but I have been getting awfully low FPS on it.
    Specs:

    2.46 GHz centrino 2 dual core
    GeForce 9800m GS 512 RAM and up to 2gigs with shared memory with main RAM
    PC has 4gigs of RAM installed.
    Idk if this help, 1366X768 resolution.
    Win 7 64bit, ubuntu dual boot.
    I have turned all settings to lowest, but still only get 25-45 FPS, which is plain horrific considering this PC played MW2 on all max graphics. Also, when I put all settings to high except AA, vsync and that weird hsomething, there only seems to be minor differenced in FPS from all on low, which is totally weird.

    I have tweaked some graphics settings in the Nvidia control panel and the settings.ini file in the bfbc2 folder under Documents.
    So, here's a copy of the file setting.ini:

    [WindowSettings]
    Width=1366
    Height=768
    Fullscreen=true
    RefreshRate=60.046001
    VSync=false
    [Sound]
    Quality=low
    VoipEnable=true
    SpeakerCount=0
    [Graphics]
    Effects=low
    Soldiers=low
    Vehicles=low
    Overgrowth=low
    Undergrowth=low
    StaticObjects=low
    Terrain=low
    Shadows=low
    Bloom=false
    HSAO=false
    MSAA=0
    Water=high
    MainQuality=custom
    Texture=high
    DxVersion=9
    Aniso=0
    Detail=low
    RenderAheadLimit=0
    Fov=55

    I also have tried forcing dx9, as you can see above in the direct x line, but it does not seem to have helped much. I currently have directx 10 or 11, i don't know lol.

    Also attached is a screen shot of my Nvidia control panel changes, under 3D settings tab. There are two screenies, one with the settings page scrolled up, and the other one with it scrolled down.

    My idea was that I should set the "Maximum pre-rendered frames back to default or zero.

    Anyways, I am shocked that my PC surpasses the requirements by I think, a lot, but still gives such a measly performance.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    EDIT: Please approve the attachments, they are just some screenies!
    Oh, if this is in the wrong section, I apologize, yet I hope it might get more replies here.

    I will say right now your lucky to even play it at all. My friend has a laptop similar in specs to yours and cannot run the game. You could look into updating your drivers, and there is always over clocking, but on a laptop that is not recommended.

    Texture=high
    DxVersion=9

    These two don't go well together.

    As You force DX9, I suspect you hack,
    So be sure this crap isn't caused by crappy hacks.

    So, Try restoring DX to auto, It works better, And You have bad specs ( Your Hardware ) to have Texture + Water to high, I suspect your PC of failing to render this, Just set them both to low.

    Directx9 works better than DX10, as DX10 has ambient occlusion that asks alot from your graphics card. And lmAo yeah nice advice

    Do you think the cpu or the gpu is bogging me down?
    I have options for overclokingm and I also have extra cooling options with external fans and stuff.

    If its the cpu, I could dig into my pocket and buy one I already have my eyes upon, and yes I know how to install it.
    However, I now regret that I spent a thousand bucks on a laptop when I could have gotten a much better desktop for the same price...

    Overclocking a laptop is amazingly stupid, I highly sugest you do not do this. your 9800 512 doesn't really have much grunt either. And upgrading a cpu in a laptop is possible sometimes most of the time is not succesfull.

    And yes, I am a CHOOB.

    Replacing the graphics card for a laptop? It seems a bit risky...I know the next thing I am going to buy is NOT a laptop, I wan to have the easy upgrade ability of desktop systems.

    I've had this Core 2 Duo e6600 2.4GHz since 2006 and last year added a GTX 260 (4 gigs ddr2 ram, win 7 64bit) and currently all max settings or lowest settings I get like 20 - 45 FPS. It drops down to 0 or 1 fps all the time, and while loading single-player missions it drops as well, 0 - 7 FPS - when the loading screen shows that zooming around with pixles loading. I know it is my CPU because it has been bottle-necking my GPU even when I had a 7900GTX it seemed. I'm gettin a i7 soon anyway, but that's just my situation. Yours seems similar, considering your CPU is similar. MW2 I get fine FPS. It just seems that in any game where there are a lot of moving things with dust and other particles my CPU can't handle it even if its max or low settings. I play on highest settings still, though.

    I know, there is not a great deal of FPS difference between high and low to me, its a joke.

    Same problem here.
    But what's funny is that 1024x768 Low settings and 1680x1050 High settings give me the exact, EXACT same fps.
