How To Run GTA Smooth With Mods?


Recommended Posts


I made a topic kind of exactly like this, but it went no where really. This new topic is a lot more descriptive and gets to the point. If you're a modder you should know about Dizz Nicca. Dizz Nicca has a pretty beefy modded GTA game, and his computer specifications as he posted on forums.ls-rp.com are extremely old school, you can view that thread here, if you don't have an LS-RP account his specifications will be posted at the bottum of this thread. You can look at this YouTube videos and see that his game is runny really smooth, and he even said on the forum he had about 50-60 FPS all times when recording. While I'm over here with a computer that stomps all over his completely, with even FEWER mods, I can't say the same. I lag horribly, miserably. I honestly don't know how these people do it. I've been using ModLoader with CLEO and that's the only two "Sources" that I install mods too. I barely have anything compared to what these people have on YouTube and somehow they get a smooth frame rate compared to mine, even though my computer is like 10x better then theres. I use basic mods too, It's not even like I'm shooting for some O.G. Heavy Modded GTA like some people. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong here, but I'm deffinately not doing it right from what it seems. Could any big time modders or mod devs please help me? I'm not stupid, I know a huge deal when it comes to modding but clearly I don't know how to mod and get smooth frame rates like these people do. When I'm playing I usually get around 20-30 FPS. Compared to their 50-60 while recording with a super low end computer.

I've found out what was causing me a great deal of lag, Project2dfx. After I removed that I noticed a huge deal of performance increase.
