Hey all I'm actually playing the game-theme solo championship of Race 07, the WTCC '07. I'm driving an Alfa Romeo. I'm at race #6, Porto in Portugal. It's a tight street track. Hard to not hit some wall somewhere. The thing is, anytime I hit a wall with enough momentum to do damage, be it head-on, backwards, or even sideways, the game suddenly drops to a HORRIBLE slide-show framerate. And I'm talking like 10 fps or worse here. There's been a couple times where I was able to keep driving, and the framerate slowly improved, but never back to the smooth normal framerate. I'm driving with a full grid, full damage, graphics settings on high except shadow detail at medium. Porto is the ONLY track so far that I've experienced this on. My system is: Win 7 Pro Pentium D dual 3.4 Ghz 3 gigs RAM Nvidia GTX560 Ti w/1Gig VRAM 80gig SATA HD On Motherboard audio. I have done some tinkering in my .plr file, but nothing I can see that should be affecting framerates as such. I also have a bunch of mods (cars, tracks) installed. I DO have SimManager installed, so I suppose I could go thru and un-install ALL my mods, then check and see if the problem persists .. but <sigh> what a tedious PITA that would be. Basically, I'm hoping someone out there is familiar with this problem and might be able to direct me to the quickest way to fix this. .. Clearly, not crashing is probably my best bet. However, that's rather unlikely over the course of the two races. LOL Thanks in advance!!
