I need some info on h0w to look on how many FPS im runnig my games, like doom 3, cod 2, wow.
Most games have built in commands in the console to show fps, but the easiest way is to download fraps.
I know the the code to check your FPS in CoD2 Single Player is "cg_drawfps 1" (without the quotes) but that code doesn't work in the multiplayer. I don't know if this is relevant for you,but I also know that the one for Steam games (HL2, CS:S, DoD:S, etc.) is "cl_showfps 1" (without the quotes).
thanks for the help
Brother you can use ATT from this site. Or a small app called fraps.
Once you have these and don't know how to oc then ask that question @ that time.
Fraps will show you the FPS on any DX game and a whole lot more.
Fraps is a utility for DirectX and OpenGL games. It can best be described as:
Benchmarking software - see framerates on screen and log them to file. Calculate the average framerate between any two points.
Screen capture software - take screenshots at the press of a button with files automatically named and timestamped.
movie maker software - realtime recording of your gameplay to high quality AVI video files.
- Requires Direct X 9.0b
- Requires Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows 2003
- Requires Pentium 3, Pentium 4, Athlon, or Duron processor
- Works best with an Nvidia Geforce 2/3/4/FX, or an ATI Radeon 9xxx graphics card.
- Must be installed under an Administrator account.
I did so, but now do not want to see this FPS anymore also i forgot where i made them visible :O - can you tell me that position ?
For Source games, net_graph 3 is generally more useful and is also required by many leagues
But yeah, you did hit the nail on the head. Ingame commands are usually better than separate programs. I personally dislike Fraps.
