160fps to 15fps every 5 seconds
anyone else have this problem? i've searched forums, tried workarounds, and modified my videocard settings to the lowest settings and highest performance boosting settings.

Anyone else have a miracle fix for this problem? The game is unplayable, nearly everytime I see an enemy, I shoot back down to 10-15fps.

Maybe you got a program regularly writing things on you HDD (like a monitoring one that creates a log file every 10 secs). Try to disable the "create logs" options.
If it's not that, try to launch NS2 with only steam. Nothing non-essential.
When you say you get drops everytime you see an enemy, do you mean when an enemy appears on your screen you get drops? Does your fps also drop when you see friendlies?

Both. even while walking down hallways by myself.

start_progs set to 0 in my registry. im getting a little bit more frame than i did before, but im still going from 180fps back to 20fps
:(

Then i have no idea, unless trying switching OpenGL or DX9/11

currently got it on dx9, heard it was the easiest for cpu to handle of the 3

I started getting this in the last couple of days as well. Trying to figure out what is happening or what changed on my system. r_stats doesn't show any conclusive.

Maybe you can defragment your HDD, remove unwanted software? That could have a medium impact
snu 2014년 2월 2일 오후 2시 13분 
no spyware/viruses and also defrag daily at 4am. im still unsure what is causing this. CPU does not exceed 40% while running ns2

Got an idea: when you launch NS2 get in the task manager and set priority for "NS2.exe" higher

done this, and even in "realtime". still the same thing, starting to think i need to replace my RAM and/or HDD.

Don't jump to the conclusion that your HDD or RAM is the bottleneck of your computer. What are your specs? Can you monitor CPU/GPU/HDD while playing? (that would indicate what's slowing everything down)

vista 6.0 build 6002
AMD phenom II 6x2.7ghz
3272mb RAM (3.19gb)
nvidia 560 ti

will monitor performance to find out where it hangs at next session.

use direct x 11 instead of direct x 9. your video card supports it and so does the game for a pretty damn good reason. direct x 9 isn't ment for newer games. (only reason it would even be in there is becuase some video cards don't support it). i had that same problem which i corrected by switching to directx 11. i'm handling all max settings now except for low hud quality without ever dropping bellow 50-55fps. some of my specs are double/triple times as powerful as yours. nothing needs replaced from your end, this is a directx or possible out of date video card drivers issue.

my specs are...
windows 8.1 64bit
amd fx 8350 4.4ghz overclock
8gb of ddr3 ram 1600hmz
r9 270x -overclocked 1165mhz clock core 1485mhz memory clock
solid sate stripe 240gb

other notes
-> your ram isn't going to bottleneck anything long as your using 32bit vista not 64bit
-> your hdd again isn't going to bottleneck anything the only time it bottlenecks is when your loading, which increases loading time but not important.
-> fps drops that huge usually indicates a software issue... update video cards drivers and switch to direct x 11. (but very rarely it could be a bottleneck)
-> your cpu usage isn't a concern unless its getting near 100% mid game. if your cpu usage is above 50% while playing ns2 you will need to be on high priority so it can properly multi-thread.

Lets see, while in game, I am using about 65% RAM, average of 0% HDD, and 25-40% CPU. Tried every known graphics configuration possible, all lowest settings/vsync off, texture streaming off/on, still doing the same thing, infact, i think it's getting worse...
