Hi, just registrated want to say hello to the community!

I'm flying RoF since about half an year; most of the time I'm just flying my career in Jasta Boelke (started Sept 2016) and till now (March 2017) only with the Alb II, Alb IIlt and Alb III. During the last days I started my first tries in online fights and also joined missions on your server, but since I am using navigation-, enemy- and friendly icons I simply was a little bit overstrained from your full realistic config ;-)

So I think I will fly more on the flying circus server but nevertheless I am very happy to see that there exists a server like yours with such realistic and historical accurate missions and would be glad if you not mind when such a noob like mine sometimes is joing your missions (at least to act as cannon fodder oder as a bait :lol:)

Best greets from vienna

Welcome Etzel-

Also feel free to join us on teamspeak if you would like some help with learning navigating and identifying aircraft. It's much quicker to learn that way..

yes, think I will install ts soon! But I wonder if it is allowed to use ts during the missions?

Hi again!
Just want to say thank you for supporting me during my tries right before on this evening!

Since obviously my more than 3-y-old PC is nearly up to the limit with playing ROF on your server in combination with teamspeak next time I will try reduce the graphic-level.
(I allready switched the individual skinns off and of course this helped, but not enough)

Have you any tips which parameters of the graphic settings have a good ressource-impact vs. graphic-impact relations? :wink:
E.g. I have set "landscape Mesh Qualitiy" on 100% and do not have any clue what is effect the of this setting for ressources and for the graphical quality....
:oops:

thx & best regards from vienna

Hi Etzel - it was good to meet you on TS today. Hope you can get your hardware issues sorted so you can keep flying with us. It is worth turning down the settings some to make ROF run smoother in MP.

For graphic settings, for an older system here's what I would recommend trying in the ROF launcher graphics tab:

-under Post Effects, unclick all 4 boxes: supersampling, bloom, rain drops, high contrast all off. Then unclick Post effects box too.
-Landscape medium
-Shadows off
-Reflection off
-Textures medium
-Filter bilinear
-Shaders quality less than maximum
-light sources 4, or off

In the "advanced settings" section I think you should be OK with AA at 4, landscape mesh and objects visibility at 100. Uncheck Dither Vegetation and Multi-GPU.

If that works well, the first thing I would then try bumping up again would be the textures. Aside from shadows and reflections, though, that is probably the biggest resource hog. FWIW, even with a GTX580 I'm running with shadows & reflections off. Reflections seem to cause stutters for almost everyone, and don't make much difference in game appearence imo.

ROF should still look pretty good at these settings. I ran ROF with them with a GTX260 and a dual-core GPU for a year or more - that was many patches ago, though.

Let us know how it goes..
