Hi, i have a PIV 2,8 Ghz, 512MB Ram, 60GB Hard drive, AND the Gainwand GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE, 128MB DDR, Model Ultra/750-8X XP AGP 8X, Video-in/out DVI.
I have Ultimate Traffic and at several busy airports, my frame rate went down to 6-7. I know other people that have a poor system and they have at busy airports, with Ultimate Traffic more than 10fps. I only use default airports at busy airport. Some people told me that i didnt have the right settings on my video card, but i dont know what are the "right" ??
Can anyone help please ?

Thanks.

I have heard this many times from users of ultimate traffic, even on top end systems.

What settings have you got on you graphics card? AA? AF? etc...

Also you may have to turn down your in game sliders a couple of notche's

Especially the ai slider. The comp is bound to struggle abit if it's anywhere near 100%.

AA= Antialiasing
AF= Anisotropic Filtering

If you goto control panel/display/settings
click on the advanced tab, then click on the GForce tab and you will get various options to change AA/AF in the performance and quality settings.

These settings WILL make a big difference to the quility of your graphics, but you may lose some fps in the process.
