Graphic (lag) problem

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by matteo17, Sep 18, 2012.

  1. Hello, sorry for my english at start:)

    When I play Young driver test it works perfectly for me but a when start to play race in Monza my computer start lagging, I just dont know why :(

    F1 2011 works perfectly in medium graphic for me

    here is my pc
    Windows 7 home, 32 bit
    DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2,
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB
    RAM 2GB
  2. It will be because your GPU has more work to do, thus lowering your framerate. Is Vsync off? I know that it would not account for the difference between a race and the YDT, but it does cause input lag nonetheless.

    PS: I have no clue of ATI cards, so not sure what they call Vsync.

  6. maybe the good old replay file bug from 2010 and 2011 is still in the game...
  7. I am guessing, that in the race scenario your CPU can't handle the increased load of 24 cars instead of the 5 cars in the YDT.
  8. I think this is the one of the options :)
    But I changed some things in hardware_settings and its a lot better :)
    But anyway thanks.
  9. matteo17, what are you do?
  10. What do you mean? You mean what i've change i hardware settings?
    I'll send u screen if you want :)
  11. Its because your GPU and Ram, your system is using at least 1GB of ram leaving only 1 GB for gaming and anything else you are doing. For now turn off anything that is running in the back ground that isn't needed (this includes your anti virus program, will not be a problem been turned off while your not browsing the net) close any internet pages you have open and then see how your game plays.

    As soon as you have the money, add more ram, i spsuect your motherboard can only support 2 slots of memory, so get two sticks of 2 GB's of ram (DDR3 been the better choice, but make sure your board can support the memory first) and then upgrade your GPU to at least a GB card. Your system will run the game much smoother with higher settings then.

    To be honest back when i was only a console person i never saw the point in PC gaming, then one day i sold my 360 and began upgrading my PC, i will never buy another console again, i think they are a waste of money. For example you buy a console like say the PS4 has just been released, you rush out and buy it and five years later another console is soon to be released. But the downside is your games or many of your games from the PS3 won't work on the new console. You just wasted £600 on a console when that £600 could have built you a good gaming PC that will last you for a much longer period of time and you can upgrad little things here and there as and when you please to improve the gaming experience whilest still been able to play games you love but are years only.

    I'm not saying you bourght a console, just saying that i would rather spend money that would otherwise have been spent on a console upgrading my PC.
  12. how to change hardware_setting?
    can you tell me,
