  1. ok. clock the shadows bullet impact until it says no
    no no no no no no no to all of them
    put your gfx to low low low try that. anti aliasting off
  2. ^^ Nah, I also got the same thing as him above. It was on a view missions that was outside, one of them being the mission on the streets of the U.S.

    It just lagged like hell. Unexplained. It was on the E7400 - 9800GT - 2GB Ram and it was lagging to hell on medium settings.

    It probbally needs an update or a bug perhaps. PS: I'm a little pissy that it was just a terrible console port, I just completed it and I couldn't tell you the ammount of times I had to restart a mission becuase I would get "stuck" randomly at one point and couldn't move.

    Blah.
  3. ive just tried it on the lowest posible detail settings and im still getting the bad jerks..
    im running an E5300(pentium dual core not c2duo) -9600GT-2GB ram, i was thinking it can't be my ram or anything to do with the hardware could it?
    im using ddr2 667 as thats all my board supports without o/cing, 5-5-5-15 timing.
    its really bugging me as it tends to happen in places it needs to run smooth to get through :??:
  4. ^ Trust me. I'm thinking its the game thats just bugged. It happened to me too. The U.S.A missions where the worse ones. Everything else was fine.

    The strange thing is, I was only running it at 1024x768 medium.
  5. right ,..problem has been solved..you have to (in nvidia control panel) set the pre-rendered frames to "0" from the default of "3", this takes the strain off the cpu and free's up the systems memory bandwidth by making the g.card do all the work (what its designed for). :D :D :pt1cable:
  6. Theres a pretty good article on easily speeding MW2 up here:

    Not a bad article I guess. But all it really tells you to do is turn the graphics settings down and we all know, it applies to every game it increases performance.

    The thing is, the other posters in this thread should as well as myself should be able to play this game smoothly. In fact, I should be able to play this game maxed out. My specs are an E8400, 4GB RAM and 2x 4870's CF and yet I get stuttering too, yet my computer runs Crysis, Dragon Age, SHIFT and others smoothly (all maxed out, of course).

    Is IW aware that people are experiencing these problems?
  8. ive no idea why it does it but i know my pc should hammer this game @1600x1200, half the time im running over 70fps and then stutter lagg jerkk, the pre renderd frame only fixes most of the lag for nvidia cards but then i shouldnt have to mess with my settings to get 1 game working as all others are fine, only prob with pre render set to 0 is it relies on the g.card heavily resulting in a slight frame rate drop.

    i run dragon age, crysis and nfs shift at playabe fps with the odd setting turned down,,,damn i even run colin mcrae dirt 2 demo set to ultra @1600x1200 with min frame rate of 30 and avrg of 46fps, there is definitely a bug in the engine as "godbrother" says.

    Well it a seems that most people on here only have 2gb ram get a beter comp not graphics card ATM I run 8gb.
  10. I have the same problem and it's really bugging me.

    My comp:
    Core i5-750 @ 2,66 Ghz (quadcore)
    Radeon HD4890 DRR5 (1GB)
    4GB Memory DDR3 @ 1333Mhz
    24mbit internet connection

    EVERY MAP runs smooth except for; Favela, Highrise, Estate & Rundown. It's NOT the internet or the online session itself that laggs, its the GRAPHICS at specific places in these four maps named above. I've tried running it on ALL LOW graphics, still the same lagg as with the HIGHEST graphics. I've also tried MEDIUM, but still no progress. I have no Anti-Virus blocking anything, and I only have the standard windows firewall active, but it allows the game of course. Drivers are up to date.

    Does anyone have a clue what's going on?
  11. Hello,
    I've also problems with codmw2. I start the game really fluently graphics but after 1 minute of play, the quality of the video decrease a lot so i can't play (about one frames per 4 seconds).

    This is my hardware:

    Core i7 (quadcore)
    Gforce gt230m
    4GB Memory DDR3
    24mbit internet connection

    Is it possible?
    What's wrong?

    I've tried to set all graph settings low but the problem remains.

    Please let me have a solution.

    Thanks in advance
  12. @bumm779 if it starts out fine then goes down, its usually an overheating problem. but im not sure if your video card can handle the game.
  13. ambient occlusion off
    anisotropic filtering off
    gamma correction on
    antialiasing ALL OFF
    Max pre rendered 3-should help a bit
    single display performance mode
    anisotropic sample optimization on
    negative LOD bias allow
    Texture filtering high performance
    trilinear optimization on
    threaded optimization on
    triple buffering off
    vsync off

    i can run mw2 on my gt240m

    and urs has double my cuda cores
  14. At the risk of repeating what others have said, I think it is more dependent on the action of the scene. The USA missions, they were awful. I waited inside a building, looking around the building, about 60FPS avg. Went outside, 20 - 25FPS average.

    Same thing happens with smoke grenades, eats my FPS like hell.
    E7300 @ 3.2Ghz
    9600GT
    4Gb RAM

    So yeah, similar specs as well. I know that doesn't really solve your problem, I don't think there is a solution as such, other than to lower the settings if it gets too much of a problem. I run it maxxed out, so I guess I was asking for it!
  15. Dudes I have the same issue, it's just my loading time takes so long, I have the HD 5970, I don't know what the issue is. It loads faster with my onboard graphics card... :pt1cable:
  16. load times are linked to hdd not graphics card
  17. i havent had a problem with it since latest directx and latest drivers, i also no longer have the 9600gt as i now have an 8800gt.. i have noticed radeons take a tad longer to load in certain games (probrably texture format) but it shouldnt be to much difference,,most likely down to the hdd though
