Idea For Low FPS
« on: March 26, 2015, 06:15:54 am »
I think that for low fps should low fps waring
many people happen to have the 90 fps constantly but their moment something happens and fps drops rapidly below 30 and can not therefore enter the record
I thought to introduce to Low fps waring
example
Me falls below 30 fps and get LOW FPS WARING 1/3
and if we fall again get LOW FPS WARING 2/3
if I get back in the same race and have LOW FPS WARING 3/3
That is then switched to my record is deleted due to low FPS

It should be working on /race mode only, not in /tt. Its possible to abuse then imo. You can retry tt race if uve got this warning but at least for me its more annoyin when it appears out of nowhere in /race mode. Admin wont reload it just because you didnt make top as your fps dropped till 30 for one second that was caused by bug or w.e else

lauu I see no reason why not to do it and in /tt mode
the low fps waring would not last five seconds than at intervals of 1 second if we are below 30 fps or in tt below 40
if we are more than 1 second so we get a low fps waring and if we fps 3-4 seconds so under 40-30 get low fps waring 3/3

I see no reason for that low fps function at all, i mean record disabling. Because as we know low fps gives speed adventage only on plane or boat races but 95% of races on the server is a car races, so what is the point?

It affects handling in cars also.

Yeah but it's pretty hard to control and it's bad for races with corners.

MadMax and others proved that it is possible to abuse it in any race where acceleration is crucial. And, if you're getting random lag spikes, you're probably not competing for the record anyway, as that will indeed slow you down.

you did not understand what I told you
that low fps = high speed with the boat
I thought that as soon as you make the fps drops below 30 FPS to get waring if we FPS stands below 30 then constantly make us the FPS Waring filled within 3-4 seconds if you know what I mean ???

Sometimes i have packet loss and get the message, even when i'm still competing for the record.

actually, the system is indeed coded to forgive little lag spikes, but there will always be someone who lags more than that.
the reason it doesn't warn you for that is because it is time, and not count based.

What karlis said is that the system doesn't annule your record when your fps go below 30 one time. It annuls your record when you are below 30 fps for X amount of time.

And I don't believe a warning should be necessary, if you have fps spikes, there's nothing you can do about it during the race, and if there is (for example closing a demanding program), you lose time doing it so the rec won't be good anyway.

not acceleration but top speed. Acceleration on 30 fps is slow as hell compared to 90, so only races where top speed is main factor, where these indeed give more speed (for unknown reasons)

PLEASE, IGNORE ALL MY SPELLING MISTAKES AND OTHER TYPOS True racing fans enjoy horsepower in ANY form

I agree with Mad Max , my fps is therefore moving average is 45 and in relation to Brazilians who have over 200 ping I still lags behind at the start for them

Ya all I found out is:

45 FPS Limit = Easier Handling
100 FPS Limit = More pissing off
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
GIGABYTE GA-P35-S3L
6GB DDR2 RAM
GeForce GT 730 1GB GDDR5 64-bit
