When or after doing the time demo, where does the fps information display. Thx for the help to all here.
Should pop up in the console
If you dont have the commands right its
In Console -
Timedemo 1 <enter>
Demomap Demo1.dm2 <enter>
I usually disable sound when I framerate test. console commands:
When the demo is done, the console should pop up all on its own, and the bottom few lines should contain the framerate.
I wouldn't disable the sound. That gives you a false reading. Unless you're trying to test if your sound card is a resources drawback. If your FPS are drastically different with and without sound, then you may want to invest in a new sound card. If they're fairly close (within 10% is my personal tolerance), then you're probably ok.
Of course, I'm always testing for raw video performance, not the system as a whole. If you are comparing video cards, disable sound. If you are comparing entire systems, leave it on. Just realize that the sound affects the number you are getting.
