  • Tv Missile Issue

    Hi,

    Having played for a few months around a year ago, i became fairly good at using the tv missile and taking things out. However after a long spell i have re-purchased the game and everything is working fine, but for some reason, i cannot hit anything with the TV Missile unless the target is not moving.

    So my question is does anyone know why it would be that i cannot seem to direct it anymore. My mouse works fine and when i right click i get the screen then if its say a moving chopper i will place it on or in front of it and when it changes direction, i cannot seem to get the missile to move?

    Any hints/help/advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Apinkmist.

    Practice, obviously? I suggest you go into single player mode, and practice.. I doubt that it's something other then not playing as much..

      Try lowering your settings. You probably don't have a high FPS which will make it harder to TV people. Also make sure your ping is low.

      As for tving choppers, go for the tails.

        Thanks for your reply System. I do think it has something to do with that, rather than practice, i know what i have to do, but cannot seem to do it now, different pc and location.

        As for the FPS and Ping, most of the time my ping is between 70 and 100 and the fps, if i am reading it propertly is the red numbers in the top left? When i last played it was 15/66.7 Is that bad, if so, do you know how i can increase it?

        Thanks

          yeah 15/66.7 is considered bad. (it means ur getting 15 fps) actually in fact, the minimum that the game tells u is 15 so u are probablygetting something even lower. turn down some settings. oh and if u want to see ur true fps, type game.lockfps 0 and it wont put a max/min on wat fps it reads.

            If it gives those numbers all the time you have bigger problems than low frame rate. That is a bug/glitch in the game that locks your frame rate to those numbers. I don't remember ever seeing a definitive fix for it (uninstall/re-install the game, etc). Hopefully someone will see this and remember seeing the thread(s) with the fix.

            As you can see,

                Hi, and thanks for your replys.

                I think that is the worst i have had, i got booted from a couple of servers the other night whilst playing and i guess that is why.

                My specs are

                Optima xp home edition 5.1 build
                Pentium 4 cpu 3.06 ghz
                1534mb ram
                directx version 9?
                nvidia geforce fx5200
                memory 128mb

                Is that enough to play at the same level as others?

                If you think i need to update something, let me know but i thought it would be enough. I am still trying to find some answers about the 15/66.7

                Any further info would be appreciated.

                  Well yeah,

                  That GFX-card s*cks. Sorry if I say so..

                  To get better performance you'll need to upgrade your GFX-card seriusly..

                    With a 5200 you're looking at all low, with a couple possibly off, and 800x600.

                            I think now would be a good time to upgrade your video card. AGP cards are still available and fairly cheap now. I just bought a 7600GT for $ 109 after rebate on newegg. With a decent video card, your computer should be fine for years to come.
