So, same question to you: 10 years ago, PR had a 4k monitor? Again, according to his own words it was his new setup alone that allowed him to reach his goal.

I'd have thought a logically-minded person would see that.

Hey, thanks. I appreciate the comments - but please feel free to actually address the point: PR said it was his new system alone that allowed him to reach 60FPS for the first time ever, in 10 years.

You opted to join the conversation, so I would infer you have some relevant input. By all means, I'd like to hear your perspective. Logically, how does one account for PR's report, when Adger says he gets 60FPS on a much lesser system just by disabling a mod (which isn't even part of the default install, BTW)?

kksnowbear:
You really are not listening are you (which is normal for you). I said 60 FPS all the time, every where, not just 60 FPS.

10 Years ago when I started playing OFF3, I felt great when I could get to 60 FPS during a campaign mission (it was normally ~ 40 FPS). As the years progressed and CPUs & GPUs got stronger, the better the FPS and closer to 60 FPS all the time.

On my last game PC (7700K & 1080 Ti, 1440p monitor) I got 60 FPS 99% of the time, but it would still drop to the upper 40's or low 50's when coming in to land Flanders, Spring 1918 and cause huge stuttering when it did that.

As I said, (if you had been listening), I have finally reached 60 FPS constantly every where and all times (Flanders, Spring 1918) at MAX settings in 10 years and that has been my goal.

Do not know what you goal is, other that post "knows-it-all" and "snarky" comments on this forum as others have noticed too.

Way ahead of you. Click on the user's name to the left of his post. This brings up the user page on which "ignore" is an option.

Thanks, Raine. Trolls never change. Until there's a ban, there is at least Ignore.

Finally.


You said that you never got 60fps consistently before you got the 9900k CPU and 2080Ti.

"Never drop below" is exactly the same thing as consistently getting (at least) 60fps. You indicate that, for the first time ever in 10 years playing all three variants of the sim, you never got 60fps consistently. - until you got the 9900k.

I don't think I've misunderstood or misquoted anything at all.

I don't know maybe kksnowbear purchased more than one copy of WOFF UE.

Not only does he not have a vested interest in WOTR... appears he no longer has a vested interest in WOFF UE.

Move along.... nothing to see here...

kknowsitall:

I have reached 60 FPS back in OFF3 days, just I never reached 60 FPS consistently like my current setup as I stated as my goal.

Please read what you write before auguring about it.

I'm not the least bit surprised, but thanks for that Stache. wink

PR - you have helped contribute time and effort to making this sim better many times, not least of which were your efforts to reduce scenery popping in conjunction with the "blue triangle killer" mod. I still use your version of it to play WOFF UE to this day. Don't waste your time with kknowsbear. He's not here to help. He doesn't even own the sim. He just likes to incite people to make himself feel big even though he's never contributed a #%&*$# thing to the sim, unlike you and many others here. Put him on ignore and let him suffocate with the lack of responses.

By that point in this conversation, it's long since understood what you stated.

But you are correct I did omit the word continuously. However, that was strictly a typo and it doesn't change the discussion, nor what you've reported.

What you've stated is that it was the new system, 9900k and 2080ti etc that has allowed you to reach your goal of 60 fps consistently. First time ever, in fact, in 10 years of playing OFF etc. Meaning that, according to what you indicated, the new system was necessary to get 60fps continuously.

Probably easier to stop clutching at all these straws, when it really doesn't change what you said.

And it still leaves the question of how Adger did it with a much lesser system just by turning off a mod.

Anybody remember Uncle Al? Despite his sometimes helpful posts, I can't say I miss his vitriol.
