my fps display in sp is very different than bnet. it says that i'm getting 24 fps, 24 skip, and 30 ping. on bnet, it says 75 fps, 0 skip, 80-120 ping. is this normal? am i getting the performance i'm supposed to be getting?
Capped to 25? Mine usually says 30 fps 0 skip in SP. 30 is my target on all games, as it's widely considered TV broadcast quality. A lot of games go a lot higher...really, I think I'd get much better FPS if Diablo 2 was true 3D...Morrowind always runs above 30, as does Neverwinter Nights. Unreal Tournament 2004 generally clips along at about 60 fps.
D2 runs at 25 fps. IIRC all attack animations speeds are based on that. On multiplayer it shows fps higher than 25 but then it only draws the same frames multiple times. If it was possible to chance the fps, then attacks speeds etc would work in different way I believe
