I have horrible frame rate playing Infantry. How can I improve my FPS?
Symptoms of low FPS is a choppy-like screen, skipping and sometimes even the monitor freezing up indefinitely. Some of the common modifications include:
Try switching your video mode. Sometimes playing on Windowed Mode provides better FPS than Full Screen, and vise versa. This can be accomplished through the Resolution options outside and in-game. You will have to be using 16-bit color to access Windowed Mode.
Lower your resolution. This typically improves your FPS, especially on very small screen sizes.
Install the latest drivers for your video card and monitor.
Upgrade to the latest version of DirectX.
Under View -> Advanced Options at the Zone Selection Screen, make checkboxes beside: Show Frame Rate, Render when window is in background, Triple Buffer, and Avoid Page Flipping. This is not guaranteed to work, however. Play around with the settings if required to see what is best for you.
In-game, goto: Main Menu -> Options -> Graphic Options. Make the following changes:
Fake Alpha Blending - Yes
View line-of-sight - Never
View Line-of-sight Blended - No
Obscuring Wall Display - Solid
Show All Thrust/Smoke - No
Show Weapon Trails - No (NOTE: Yes will make the game look better)
Show Banners - No
Energy Bar - Off
Again, play around and see what works.
