View Full Version : About Next-Gen TRL mode

Hello! :wve: I'm almost ending my "TR marathon" :D now, I have AoD almost finished and I have installed TRL now, it's the second time I am playing it. Yeah, I only played it once. It deserves more than one time, and I'm going to try finding the secrets and maybe the time trials. ;)

So I have been messing this night a bit with the graphic options. Since I have a totally different PC this time, much more powerful, I thought I would play it in next-gen mode at very good speed, but unfortunately it doesn't run that good..... It goes at like 35-38 fps (tested with FRAPS at the first level right at the beggining at the waterfall part). It can go down to 25 fps at times, specially with the shoulder lantern on.
Without next-gen, it goes at amazing speed (75fps almost always, which is my LCD refresh rate), but with antialiasing the frames go a bit down and there are some choppy moments when the camera turns fast ( I play with keyboard+mouse to move camera ;)). That's not a surprise, as my videocard is not good with AA turned on at most games.

All this is at 1280x1024 @ 75Hz with a LG FLatron L1730S 17"(bit old by now :p). My system specs are:

- AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
- Asus M2N-E SLI motherboard
- 3 GB DDR2 667 Kingston RAM
- 500 GB SATA2 7200 RPM HDD
- XFX 8600GT XXX Fatality 256MB

Is it normal I suppose to not have great fps with next-gen on because of the videocard? It's mid-end and doesn't have much RAM.... :( I would like to change it in a not too distant future, but that is off-topic. :D

I am curious as to what videocard would I have to get to enable next-gen content and run it at amazing speeds, based on today's videocards, Nvidia or ATI, as I don't mind switching between the two companies. :p Also, if members here can play with next-gen on flawlessly, I would like to know PC specs or videocard specs, as I have said already. :)

I don't think Legend next gen runs smoothly at any resolution other than 800x600 even if you have top of the line hardware. I played it at 800x600 on a much worse machine than yours and it ran at least 30 fps throughout the game.

Strange, in my opinion 25fps and above has always been perfectly acceptable for your average slow paced game.

Did you install TRL patch v1.2 (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/tr7/updates.html). You could run Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) and post the report here, there might be something else our technical experts can do to optimise the game and decrease the amount of work you PC is doing in the backgraound, but about 25fps seems fine to me.

The only setting that increases FPS while running Next Gen for me is turning Shadows off.
The game just isn't optimized very good. There are many games that have tons more effects going on that run way smoother for me.

At 1280x1024 with Fraps running 38fps in NG mode is more than fair with your video board and probably running background processes. So, yes follow Aussie's advice about the patch and the report :)

So, the game isn't very much optimized with NG switched on even after last patch, I see..... :pi: Yes, I have version 1.2 installed and the running processes on the background are the ones I will post now and FRAPS, and I had Bittorrent running also so I was forcing things a bit. But if you say it isn't optimized I don't think I can do much to improve fps other than lowering resolution or turning shadows off. I will try those, but if I don't see a noticeable difference I will just stick with current-gen, as the game goes fast as a rocket and I don't need super-realistic graphics to play.;) Thanks for the answers! :tmb:

The minimun acceptable framerate is 30, so if your system manages to keep the framerate above 30, it's doing quite good, specially at 1280 x 1024. But if you want to increase the framerate, you can turn off some features like Depth of Field.

I don't think Legend next gen runs smoothly at any resolution other than 800x600 even if you have top of the line hardware. I played it at 800x600 on a much worse machine than yours and it ran at least 30 fps throughout the game.

Not true at all. I play Legend with next-gen enabled at 1280x1024 with Anti-aliasing, and I get something like 60 to 70 fps.

The only setting that increases FPS while running Next Gen for me is turning Shadows off.
The game just isn't optimized very good. There are many games that have tons more effects going on that run way smoother for me.

Well, this is true. I run Bioshock at 1280x1024 with FSAA 4x around 80fps.

1. Update your video drivers (http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html) and DirectX (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/thankyou.aspx?familyId=822640ab-0983-4c41-9c70-632f6f42c557&displayLang=en).

2. Make those settings in TRL:

Disable Dynamic Textures....... Off
Enable Depth Of Field.......... Off
Enable Full screen Effects..... Off
Enable VSync................... Off

3. If you stop FRAPS the actual FPS will be better than with FRAPS testing.

4. Stop Bittorrent, and check if TRL has no restrictions in your firewall.

5. If you want more info about background processes, please run ARDiag.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/ardiag.exe) and post the report. Maybe we can kick a bit more fps ;)
