I would appreciate it if someone could
tell me the best way to set the following
graphics settings so I get the best frame rates
and still have pretty good looking graphics.

Anisotropic Filtering
Texture Preference
Mipmap Detail Level
Wait For Vertical Sync
Truform

My system...

Windows XP Home
2.66 GHz P4
1 Gig Ram
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Graphics Card
SoundBlaster Live Sound Card

Thanks.

Well, It's mostly down to what you think looks nice, and what level of FPS
you like to play with. I like high FPS, but still like a nice pic. I have an
almost identical spec computer. This is what I use:

> Anisotropic Filtering
OFF

> Texture Preference
High Performance.

> Mipmap Detail Level
High Performance

> Wait For Vertical Sync
On

> Truform
Off

Oh and of course, enable all refresh rates and set your refresh rate as high
as possible. I run at 100hz.

If you can tell the difference between high and low on some of these
settings whilst playing then you need to be concentrating on the enemy and
minimap more! The graphic settings in-game have more visual effect.

Oh and of course keep AA off, as it /generally/ screws up the writing in
BF1942, ok in BFV, but you'll take a big FPS hit.

Your system is powerfull, you shouldn't need to compromise.

However, if you really want to improve performance, turn off Anisotropic
Filtering, set Texture to medium, mipmap to medium to, and turn Vertical
Sync. It should still look acceptable.
