| Hello everyone|
Some people said that If these steps can help reduce lagging and improve fps in gta IV. I wanna make sure if these are true or not :
1. Change the game's priority to high in task manager
2. Open run, type dxdiag then open the sounds tab and move the horizontal scroll thing in the tab to the. left ( I forget what the name of the bar )
3. Enable triple buffering
So, which point is true or false?
If anyone have idea of how to improve the fps internally, I mean, through changing in pc's settings, not externally --> reccomend to buy another pc .,
ok so, if anyone knows, then tell me please. I hate to play game with small but frequent lags :s
if you're not familar w PC desktops and/or operating systems [ie, winXP, windows 7] then i'd say beg someone who knows about this stuff and enjoys playing games on his rig. for me it was just a process of elimination. you're bound to have a PCI express grfx card...right? is it ATI or nvidia? are the drivers up to date? have you done a 'dxdiag' [type that in the 'run' command line]? my knowledge of win7 is limited since i still use winXP pro. dxdiag will let you test the grfx of your grfx card.
there's a possibility that if you bought your pc ready built then you have an under powered PSU [power supply unit] to cope with ram, cpu, hdd AND, more importantly for games, graphics card [the nvidia or ATI card that sits on your motherboard]. if you have a 300-350 watt PSU then that could cause lag. not enough power is getting to your whole pc.
eg, i have a HP intel quadcore i3. it has only a 300watt PSU. if i added a PCI express graphics card it would cause a lot of problems.
but i'm guessing you have just to get the right setting. try turning the vertical sync on or off in graphics 3D properties, or, change general graphics to 'performance' from 'average' or 'quality'.
that's all i can tell u cos u cannot do much harm with these simple settings.
