Quick & dirty Lag fix

Post by Tolbiac » Fri Apr 23, 2010 12:41 pm

Hey people,

I think I found a way to reduce the lag some people are experiencing in Fort Zombie (I know I am).

I simply removed the physic of most objects in the game (zombies and npcs not included) and that seems to help a lot with the FPS ... or that might be only me ... so that's why I'm releasing this early version of my mod, I'd like you guys to try it and tell me if it does help (of course, if you can already run the game without any problem, this mod won't be of any use to you).

Why quick & dirty you'd ask ?
Well because for the moment, using this mod will transform your game in a weird piece of modern art (the Dali kind). Flying tables and boxes won't be a rare sight ... but hopefully nothing gamebreaking (except the occasional destroyed door that won't let you go in a house).

If the physic is indeed to blame for the poor FPS, I'll continue my work on the mod and try to make the city look a bit less weird.

So well, here's a link to download the "fix" :
http://rapidshare.com/files/379169812/Q ... olbiac.rar
Just replace your "Level" folder with mine (oh and do a backup first).

And here's a quick guide if you don't know how to mod the game.
- rename your fz.gob into fz.zip and extract it.
- rename the extracted folder into fz.gob
- explore the fz.gob folder and there you'll find the Level folder you need to replace (make a copy first, as a backup).

Finale note :
The fix might help but other stuffs like Particles will still keep the game from going really fast.
And sorry for my english.

Well, loads of downloads but not a single feedback. I guess those who really bought the game in the end, didn't really need this "fix". :P

Anyway, I recently upraded my rig with a stronger processor and now the game runs like a charm. So I'm discontinuing the development of this mod. However, if some people, for some reason want to try the latest version (no particles, it was helping a lot), just send a pm.

Hi. Wanted to say thank you for this mod. My PC is quite old and the game was a slideshow on it. Now is much better but slows down to a crawl again on the final battle.
Would like to try the particle mod please, will pm you too.

Thanks again from all of us with ancient PCs :D

Hey, even though I have a pretty nice PC I still get ridiculous FPS slowdown in this game, and I am pretty sure it is due to the physics (it only happens in levels, when I'm in the base I have a solid 60).

With this mod I've gone from an FPS of 4-7 to an FPS of 20-30! Occasionally it will still dip down (usually when there's lots of particles) but without this mod the game would be unplayable for me. THANK YOU! :thumbsup:

Anyone ever come across a valid link for this file? Or does anyone know how to remove PhysX from the game? I've played this game on two different computers and find PhysX causes more lag issues then anything. The lower settings make the game look like crap. So if anyone knows where a copy of this file is or a way to remove the PhysX out the game it would be appreciated.
