How can I increase the performance of TF: The Game on PC?

Postby Phenotype » Tue Jul 31, 2007 2:22 pm

I just got a brand new desktop from Dell yesterday, Transformers: The Game wouldn't work on my laptop and someone mentioned it might have something to do with the graphics card. My new PC has an Athalon Dual Core Processor (2.31 GHz) and FOUR freakin' Gigs of RAM, yet the game plays slow as hell.

I turned the hi-res elements off in the game menu and that helped a lot but it's still ridiculously slow so I'm assuming it must be a graphics card issue again. My graphics card is nothing special, just an NVIDIA GeForce 6150. I didn't realize I would need a freakin' 1337 machine just to play this game. Anyways, any suggestions on how I can get it to run better? I remember a setting in Windows XP where I could lower the graphics acceleration speed but this new comp. has Vista and I can't seem to find that option anywhere.

To be honest it's probably the Graphics Card. That hasn't been a top of the line card....Ever.

Thanks for the reply. I know it's probably the graphics card, what I'm looking for are ways I can increase the performance. I'm not a gamer at all so getting a top-of-the-line card really wasn't a priority for me, saving money was.

Well. Changing things in windows won't really make a difference unless you start going into system memory and page file sizes and stuff which I wouldn't reccommend. Only thing I can say is keep turning down different settings until you get to a level where it runs nicely. Anti Aliasing and shadows are normally the two largest settings to cause problems. If you can lower those it should help out greatly.
