I want to share my DxDiag for the laptop I find myself using more often. 

 

 https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing

 

Performance in TDM, even after 2.05 is pretty crap. I was thinking to remove any FPS cap to help it. Real problems surface with particles and things like that.

What was the catch with the perforamance boosters planned for 2.05? How many people feel it had a significant outcome for them?

The wiki has helpful customization to manually do the sunrise and get the settings down for low performance PC's, but I wonder if I'm missing something.

Games such as Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines ran quite decently and this isn't a PC that old, especially Doom 3 engine wise.

Not expecting amazing horsepower, but still, 10 FPS at any scene with particles?

Is the above running under 2.05..? and which "Intel HD" chip is it, the HD 3000...? if so you gonna have a hard time running most games under that GPu.

Yes, just updated to 2.05. It says on the ticket "Intel Dual Core B830 1.8 Ghz.

It's an "X301A Asus".

 

I presume the only solution than is to find time to manually configure and remove particles. Are there any plans to make extreme low settings like these available in the game settings? For low perf. PC's they look quite limited (at least if making the game available to those PC's is in plans at all).

The above cpu appears to have a base spec GPU. -

drop Nbohr1more a PM, he might have some things you do to reduce the perf hit on your system

Try
r_usefbo 1
r_fboColorBits 15
r_fboSharedColor 1

r_fboSharedDepth 1
But may I suggest to please create a separate topic for further discussion?

1.8ghz is going to struggle with vanilla Doom 3. The Dark Mod is heavier still.

 

That said, I would like to check your Darkmod.cfg, so please post it with a txt extension.


Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

Do you mean in regards to more fixes for low perf. PC's?

 

 

  I haven't changed anything yet. I will start to check out duzenko's advice further next week:

Exactly.

I am myself stuck with a mobile Intel 15W chip.

It's not as bad as the 4W chip I had before but still not enough for 30fps at 1080p.

Mine is a 14nm chip, while yours is 32nm, so it is probably as slow for you at 768p.

The fbo thing I've been sporadically working on recently is designed specifically for low end systems like mine.

I've been thinking about an option to skip particles at all for a long time now, but my knowledge of engine and especially of mapping concepts is very limited.

As far as I saw, particles were introduced in 2.03. More info here: http://wiki.thedarkm...title=Particles

What we don't know is how high up in the priority list such changes for option customizations are for the team. We saw how slow, unpredictable and difficult any ETA is for releasing future patches in reasonably defined timelines can prove to be.
