Framerate Drop with alot of monters and skills

Post by iSkrilleX on Wed Jan 22, 2014 2:40 am

My framerate drops to 0 or 2 when theres alot of monster/spells inside/outside screen, and sometimes it gives a error on my diablo 2. I tried using DDraw, and configuring glide, theres anything i can do to make this problem disappear?

Spec:
Athlon II x2 260 3.2 ghz dual core
4 gb ram 667 mhz ddr2
gt 240 gddr5 1gb 128 bits

aerial likes to joke that we simply do not have the level of technology needed to run Diablo 2 smoothly yet.
It's funny because it's true.

Edit: iSkrilleX, can you give us some information of what skills you're using when this happens? Or does this happen in every area even when you're not attacking/casting?

Ah yeah that sounds about right. You're hitting the sprite limit. D2 has a max number of things that can be drawn on the screen at any one time, and if you go over that max the FPS drops to almost 0 until you run away from all the sprites so the game doesn't have to draw them anymore.
Nothing you can really do except not enter such situations.

Laughing Poison skills are always super laggy. Call it a "feature".

Perhaps all one needs to run D2 well is 1760 PS3s connected to form a supercomputer. To the local pawn shop!

Practical solution - pull as few mobs at a time as possible in the projectile heavy areas.

Even when I cast one poison avatar I get this strange smell of burning coming from my comp tower.
 Maybe it's just in my head...
