I Need Help Please

Post  Slayer_2 on Thu Nov 20, 2008 6:15 pm

OK, so for the Sci-fi compo, I have almost finished a map, I stop to play it and it gives me all kinds of issues. I want you guys to DL it and test it. Please do this and report loading time, any glitches and your specs. Here's the DL, if you want it, more details are below on my specs and issues with this level.

Rust Dust DL

First, my specs:

Nvidia 8800GT 512MB
Intel 3.0Ghz Dual Core
2GB (2 x 1GB) OZC gaming RAM
Gigabyte S-Series motherboard (supports dual and quad core)
250GB hard drive with 100GB free
450W Power supply

For non-techies, it runs Crysis on Highest at 1200x1000 with 4x AA.

The issues I encountered:

In random areas I'm hit HUGE framerate drops. It'd go from 200 to 2 FPS in a second with no explination. This would usually happen in a random hallway and would go away once I got far enough away from that certain area.

The vent segments are totally whacked. Every segment turned invisible once I went inside. All I could see was my HUD/gun and the entities in the map.

halfway through the map, the game froze, then crashed with an error message a second later. Again, nothing was going on in the scene, I was just walking.

Please help if you can, I would also ask you respect my work, if it behaves for you, and not copy it as I really hope I'll still find a way to enter the compitition.

Hmmm, I could, but I fear that it will save the glitches, ruining the point of this test.

I can make an .exe if you need it, but I only used stock media anyhow. The only Media I own for X10 that isn't stock is your APC and Space Shuttle Nickydude, and its not used in this map anyhow. Please try it and tell me if it works. If not, then I'll make the .exe, although I'd rather avoid wrangling with the FPSC X10 game builder if possible, not to mention it may save the current issues, or cause more.

Ok, thanks, hopefully I won't have to stop using X10, but if these problems become common-place, I really can't imagine success with any of my current projects.

I will email myself that level and see if I can load it up tonight.

OK, thanks you two. I'd really like to get past all these problems and complete the Sci-fi levels so I can get back to my abstract gaming idea, which is also suffering from many glitches.

Slayer, I get crappy FPS.

I am running a NVidia Geforce 8600GTS and only achieve 20-32 fps. Pretty much unplayable. I haven't made a full game, but for the things that I fool around with I seem to get 120+fps.

I am not sure how to fix it, but the FPS aren't very good for me Sad

Also I noticed something weird in one of the very first doors (see screen shot).

Yeah, I noticed with FPSC X10 60 or less FPS is when it starts lagging. I get 200+ FPS unless I hit a slow-down area, then it sinks to 1-2 FPS until I exit the area. Lag was never a problem with me as my PC is pretty good, not a beast, but pretty powerful. I just wanted to see if it was my PC causing the issues. Thanks for you time, I'll wait for the next report and see what seems most likely.

i played your game, i got nearly same pc as you slayer, and i had 8 fps. sometimes 22. i see you use lots of doors and fake doors, if you remove some you will see it goed faster, make your rooms a bit smaller, sometimes you use 2 doors for 1 room, use 1.

so my tip for u

[list][*] deleta some fake/use doors and windows. so the player can play the game fast

Also, remove window refractions altogether. Just set it to 0. Also, if you don't use water, set all of its settings, especially refractions, to 0 also. Expect 20 more FPS Smile

W00p w00p! I'll add you! xN0MaD SP4RT4Nx btw!

I'm not gonna try this. On my 1GB Vista with Dual Core 2GHz and 8400GS 512mb, I doubt it will get a good framerate. Sorry mate.

Ok, thanks guys. I don't know why it didn't work out. Argh. I think I'm retiring to a cosy life of FPSC X9.
