Hey all I've been trying to get some good FPS on this game and I can't seem to get it work decently at all. According to the AppDB for LOTRO a lot of people seem to be able to push out 80-150fps on this game. I don't know how as I've scoured the internet and have tried every possible registry tweak you can imagine. I even tried niceing the process to see if it would make a difference. I'm not sure what else to do and I was hoping I can get some more advice. I don't have a terrible computer so I should be getting at least 60+ fps. What I'm getting is 20-30fps sometimes even less like 12-20fps. It really depends on what's going on. Now if I set the game to the ABSOLUTE lowest possible setting, that is turn off everything and set the textures to low it runs at 60+ fps. However, the game looks terrible! Reminds me of a Playstation 1 game.
Anyways I was hoping I can get help with this issue. I don't ever remember it being this bad. I used to be able to play it fine. This only has happened recently so I'm assuming either some Wine updates or a Nvidia driver update that has caused this. I used to have decent FPS. The game used to fly on my computer. Now it's barely playable in crowded locations. I end up dual booting just to play.
Please any help or advice would be great!
