I finally got a chance to try the 60fpsaiV1 and had some good news and some bad. The good is that it seemed to work well, no CTD's. The bad is I'm afraid my older PC doesn't get very good frame rates with the AI at 60fps. Lowering my resolution to 1280x720 from 1920x1080 had an improvement, but not enough as I never could achieve 60fps with the GT's. The track I tested this with is Spa. I also tested with the 67 GP's and it was better. Once the field spread a little, I was getting around the 60fps mark, but it still wasn't very smooth game play. I would have lags in my shifts that caused over revs on my upshifts.
I think this will have to wait until I build my new PC, hopefully in the next 6 months. I'm going to follow this topic here and in the other thread as I find your discovery with 60fps AI very encouraging for us AI racers. Thank you for sharing your information with us all. I will be putting it to good use when I have the PC to do it.
Interesting your difference between 67 mod and GT mod.Since 4/5 years back, when we installed a mod and play at 36 fps, it was difficult to put a hierarchy on the FPS hungry and killer mods.Let's imagine with six years old hardware,we all got a steady 36 fps
60 fps reveals the differences between mods, even with the latest CPU' s . Brr, Nigel and Bernd recent tests proved what we all guessed since many years :
- GPL is very CPU hungry, and even with a Quad core Intel 3.6 ghz, I am not sure someone using HD reso 1980x1020 can still get a steady 60 fps at the back of the grid at Monaco, one of the most demanding starting grid to do a fps test.
Beside,I have heard on hardware websites tutorials, for ancient Direct X 7 games, a Dual core CPU should be be a better performer than a Quad core.That' s why, when I changed for a complete new PC in April, I went for an Intel dual core, and it is less expensive !
- Seems the last Nigel V2 rasterizers transferred some of the work to the GPU.But to what percentage rate?.Anyway, the GFX I have now, boost far more demanding games than GPL regarding animated objects and textures.
- another thing that drop down the 60 fps, is using the Pribluda V2 with the last rasterizers.I have pribluda installed, but I'll do test disabled for various mods.
Happy driving with your future PC, Dave !
