I have been playing AVWW for a while now but with the new feature that shows the framerate in the message window I have been able to confirm a dramatic fluctuation in my framerates that I don't think should be occurring given the demands of the game. I am running a 2.4Ghz i5 450M with 6GB ram and a Radeon 5650m with 1 GB ram and the latest Catalyst drivers. I have the game set on 1280X768 resolution.
I am currently fighting a Giant Blue Amoeba and my framerate when it attacks drops to about 15 fps. In forest areas I get about 24fps, and in deserts I can push around 35. In buildings I usually fluctuate between 20-40fps, unless a lot of enemies are attacking in which case it drops to around 15.
Given the high demands of some of the 3D games I run, it strikes me as odd that I can barely push 30fps on AVWW with the resolution turned down. Any thoughts as to why it is so choppy sometimes? Is anyone else having these sorts of dramatic fluctuations?
