I am top ranked Motocross Madness 2 player on the zone. After installing XP home edition , my fps are stuck on 75 max. A buddy of mine had same problem after installing XP. He said he was watching Tech TV and they were talking about how XP freezes your frame rates at 75 fps. He is not very computer literate so he didnt pay attention but they (tech tv) said there is a way around this. I searched Tech TV and The Screensavers to no avail.

I have all updated drivers on a 1.5 P-4, MSI 6339, 256 RDRAM, Ge-Force 2 pro. I was actually obtaining frame rates around 130 with Win 98SE. I did a clean (full install). HELP!!!!!!

you either need to use the refresh rate fix, or you need to make sure you disable vertical sync in BOTH openGL and Direc3d..you have to goto the options for each and make sure it's correct

cos the world around him runs at a much higher framerate and he's getting confused :D

Seriously though... I personally don't see a reason for more than 90 fps ever. I mean, we get the "reality blur" effect enough on a 60fps configuration already. Our eyes can't register more than about 30 fps... but the 'other' frames blur together. :cool:

what kind of monitor are you using (crt or lcd)? you monitor needs to support higher refresh rates. if the new nvidia drivers dont work for you, get a program called nvfix (i think thats the name of it). it will let you choose your own refresh rates, which will fix your FPS.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
