Very Low FPS
So, today I bought Rust, thinking I could run it (Looking at some videos made me think that this wouldn't need a higher DX level than 9.1, boy. was I ever wrong)
On the title screen i get about 150+ FPS then when It loads servers i go down to about 3-4 FPS. I will casually hop into a server then get 3-4 FPS.
My Specs:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
nVidia GeForce GT 640 2gb DDR3
Intel Pentium (D) 3.4GHz Dual Core
2GB DDR2 RAM
OS: Windows XP SP3
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I keep thinking it's my ram, any suggestions on how I can fix my FPS?

i don't know if its the same thing but try changing the settings when you are in a sever somtimes when i join my fps is low until i change the settings doesnt matter how little you change it

You don't need 8GB like the other guy said, but 4, 2 isn't enough.

Also you can press F1 in-game and type "grass.on false" without the " ".

EDIT: Also, sometimes when I join a server it just has amazingly low FPS for a minute and gets smooth after that.

Processor is good enough according to the minimum specs.

It's fine sir, your help is wanted!

Also, what about my OS?
As far as im concerned W-XP only supports DX9
ietso Dec 26, 2013 @ 5:43am 
Windows XP and DirectX 9 Are the minimum requirements. Only your RAM doesn't meet them.

Oh, okay
So I just realized that Rust has a 'render quality' option will decreasing that Improve my FPS greatly?

I think so, als be sure to launch it with settings on "Fastest".

And as I mentioned before, press F1 in-game and type "grass.on false" (No " ")

Yea, I know about that, but thanks!
