Smile Frames Per Second = Better Game Experience

Hey guys! I have a simple question. How can I increase my FPS frames per second in game? or lower the lagg? Will I have to play for the rest of my life without foilage (aka the most awesome part of graphics)? Please give me some advice! Thanks a lot!

Foilage is awesome? Wait what?

Anyways, you can buy a new graphics card and / or processor and some new RAM... Your specs please?

Turned down foliage long time ago, couldn't see jack with it.
Anyway the best and cheapest way to increase your fps is switching to Linux
Some mods you have installed might as well decrease your performance, like wiwis UI. You might want to remove them if you really have serious FPS problems.

I was getting a lot higher fps on windows than on Linux.

Get rid of wiwi's fighter UI if you have that one, and turn foliage and other graphics down. (Assuming that your pc isn't fast enough to run on high graphics if you're getting low fps.

If you have an Nvidia card I could help you tweak your drivers. Could you upload your dxdiag so we know what kind of a system we are working with?

Is it particle effects that's dropping your framerate? You might consider the No Smoking mod. There's a link to it in my sig, right above Derpy Hooves.

Does smoke in this game lag out your computer? Then STOP SMOKING!

Savage 2 is VERY fun and even as it sits now, fairly polished. By release, she'll be clean as a whistle and success shall be ours!
