I love that I have got it figured out in this threads topic. :D

But it's always good to see that there are people trying to find solutions for problems and that they are willing to share there solutions with others. :)

Thanks mate!!!

Hey guys, for those of us who dont have high performance rigs, such as people using graphics cards like the Nvidia 8800 I have found out how to help you!

Now most importantly your going to want to go into your documents/games/RO2/Binaries and delete ROEngine, dont forget to make a backup. Anyway this will reset your graphics, and for some reason for me it allows my game to run at 75-100 fps!!! its great no lag and no glitching around even on a 64 slot server!

Also setting your shadows and non essential things excluding Model detail and other similar settings down will help alot, tuning your model details will also help significantly

*EDIT* I am so glad i managed to help out so many people! if anyone wants a full guide on the steps i take to make it work better, go ahead and message me and if i get enough ill make a full post with all of them
I ****ING love you!

a whole match at Pavlov's house and not 1 stutter or drop below 35 fps.
Not only that, but at higher gfx settings too! a lot higher!
you sir, deserve a cookie. TWI, HIRE THIS MAN!

After this fix I have slowly increased my graphics quality and guess what?
My FPS held, no slowdown that I can see. :D

I have got it figured out

I registered in the forums just to post this.

Mods, this thread should be stickied and in fact, look at culling and recreating the roengine.ini as indicated here as part of a patch..

Since doing this, I have a very noticeable performance increase. More importantly, on my old rig with a mere gtx220, athlonx2 dc 3ghz and 3gb of ram with 32bit Vista, I am able to run the game with everything on ultra except shadows and postprocessing, with a consistent ~30FPS (a minimum playable IMO)

The game actually seems to perform better at higher settings than lower, I recommend trying increasing your settings beyond what you would think is sane for your system.

Partially it brings 30 FPS more (from 30 to 60fps), but it still goes down under 30fps in some buildings.

On High, 1650x1050.

AMD Athlon 2 X4 640 3,0GHZ
6GB of Ram
Radeon HD 5770

The difference is laughable on Medium.

As it says in the linked performance thread:

Before starting with any tweaking of things make sure of the following:
If you participated in the beta make sure all config files are deleted before starting the game for the first time.
I missed that. I cannot help but think that the patching should have deleted this on it's own - there may be many people from beta who did not see this and so have not deleted the leftover, deprecated config files (roengine.ini) Not publishing the patch notes to Steam does not help.

So, since this is a good game with some rough around edges, try this. Helps a metric shi tonne.

Having some trouble with this fix! ROenguine keeps coming back?! :eek:
Thats good! the file is supposed to regenerate once it is deleted! Its supposed to do that, and again, its good to ever now and then if fps problems increce to remove it again, id say once ever 10-15 times you launch the game

Is this the only ini file that did not get deleted and needs to be recreated.
Also over in support there is a sticky thread there with some tweaks if you have not found it yet.

There definitely isn't any placebo involved. Just deleting ROengine.ini took me from smoothish framerates to something like constant 100+ frames, I've got no trouble with keeping v-sync on now. Absolutely everything set to ultra.

Radeon 6970 (slightly overclocked)
i5-2500k @ 4.2 ghz
8 gigs of DDR3-1600mhz
