Hi guys, I'm new here, I just got into this game but I'm having some problems with frame rate, wondering if anybody can help. I'm playing on my 17' 16:9 laptop which is three years newer than the game itself, it's got an i5, 6 gb ram, and a 1 gb ATI graphics card, and I'm getting 10-20 FPS on 1280x720 with all the settings low. And I'm using 184.108.40.206 which they claim is the best for frame rate.
So going on youtube I found tutorials where they recommend creating a commandline text file with these settings:
-fullscreen (this line doesn't make a difference, actually)
This drastically improved my FPS to about 40. I don't really care for nice graphics too much so the low resolution doesn't really bother me. But the black lines to the sides of the screen area really annoying since this is a 4:3 resolution, and everything is stretched taller. I can fix the stretch by changing 16:9 to 4:3 in game, but still the black lines are there.
So I tried editing the commandline by changing the width so that its in a 16:9 ratio to a height of 384. This yields
But even on these settings the black lines are still there, and its actually exactly the same as setting the width to 512. So how do I fix this? All I want to do is play in fullscreen at 16:9 with a resolution lower than the lowest in game setting of 1280x720.
