As most of you know the frame-rates produced by the unreal engine are pretty poor. Basically my friend bought Vegas 2 (on Unreal 3.x) while his computer is -- let's say 'underpowered'. What would be the best way to speed up the framerate at any cost? Is there any way to disable lighting? Perhaps a DX wrapper? Looking to gain about 10 fps. Without resorting to 340x280 res
There are very little docs on speeding it up, HDR is useless to him other than terrible lag. Research only shows people with the Xbox360 are getting the same problem. I've found some D3D hooking ideas, but I have no idea how Unreal does lighting? So disabling it that way wouldn't really help me. Is there any way to get it to render like it does in the UnrealEd (map editor)? Plain -- texured, decals, no lighting, etc? I've gathered lighting is the biggest drain on FPS.
Thanks in advance.
