I am having Trouble with my FPS i havent had my PC long, maybe 5 months and was wondering why in the last month or so i have been have in FPS problems. My fps seems so be ok before pull 20-30 but when i enter combat it dips to 5 and it makes me angry XD. I play MW2 and my fps is fine 80fps. My setting are all max but i have taken spectaclar lighting and full screen glow effect. my ms hangs around 120 if that makes a difference. i no my PC can handle WOW because it has before.
Skinner (viewpoint addon)
Sqwark and awe (moonkin addon)
deadly boss mod
i think thats it XD
If you want to know anything more please ask i would really like to sort this problem out.
I mean, your setup isn't much different than that of a lot of wow players I know that pull double that framerate. I don't think it's addons or hardware, although cutting down on either or reducing your settings more wouldn't hurt of course.
Yeah I want to back up Daxwax on that I had the same problem you described only I was starting at almost 70 fps and then when we would go into a boss fight with everything happening it would drop down to around 5 fps. Totally unable to be of any use in the boss fight essentially. So I backed off disabled all of my addons and reloaded and everything was back to normal. So I then proceeded to enable all of my long term addons first and then one by one until I found the culprit. Indeed it was an addon I had recently decided to try I disabled that on and everythng else worked great. The addon in question then updated soon afer and the issue had been fixed. But definitely give this a try.
Did u configure VSync, if the answer is yes take it off just to see.
I don't have much info on your monitor but I know for sure that a 17inch should have better refresh rate....
Maybe it has nothing to do with your problem but I will still look into it.
On the other side considering your video card having 20 to 30 fps in 25mans its not that bad. I think you shouldnt expect much more. The only thing you should look for is a stable FPS rate.
Yeah but he's also saying that's not in combat. He's getting 5 in combat. Which honestly tells me to turn off post-processing effects like all the spell stuff, but there's really no reason that computer should need to.
Unfortunately many people dont tend to understand how hard is WOW on a computer.
In 25 mans I have (sometimes) similar problems and my config it's as good as his and better. (hardware wise).
Thought I tend to belive it's still software related it is safe to assume that some tweaking of his configuration needs to be done.
If you read what Eisen is suggesting I think it's a valid point and you should try. Nevertheless I would still try disabling V-Sync just to see what is happening.
Also, I have passed trought the add-ons that you are using and I can tell you I had numerous and various problems with Skinner. That is why I don't use it anymore. It went from freezing my wow to the point that I couldnt click the buttons anymore.
