GTA SA Windows 10 - I think fps is too low

Question

checkindza

Hi, so I'm using Windows 10 Pro x64, reinstalled not a long ago. And I think I'm getting kinda low framerates. My specs are :

i7-4510U

8GB RAM

NVIDIA Geforce 840M

I'm getting about 60-70 fps not even with maxed out settings, draw distance is maybe only 3-4 tiles, AA 0, High Visual FX. Yes, some might say that it's really playable, that's true but I wan't to install some mods and mods like ENB even simple ones likes this one with some effects like lensflare, edgeAA disabled I get 35-60fps in singleplayer. Frame limiter is disabled, graphics drivers are on the newest version and yes I'm sure that the game is running on discrete graphics card not intel one.

The Game's Programming is for only 30 FPS.

These games don't even handle too well above 30fps anyway, the physics is tied to framerate so a lot of stuff is broken beyond that, 60fps seems to be fine for a lot of people but don't go over that as the games will just start to throw curveballs at you (e.g. Claude dying when walking off a step in GTA3).

Disable frame limiter but sometimes you need to enable it.

I get much lower fps with that enabled.

So you say I shouldn't worry too much about it?

But like the thing is, I want to mod this game so that's the reason why I want to get more fps because I think it's kinda too low.

I think I just found a fix! Uploading a SilentPatch and dinput8.dll (don't know which one really helped), without mods gets me about 90-140fps with draw distance increased!

Nah, with ENB somehow it still drops to 40-60fps :/.

And the strangest part is, no matter what enb I use, even the ones that only give car reflections drops fps to the same point...

Do not make multiple posts, Use the EDIT Feature to change, remove, or add test.

Besides which, You want help to do modding, Seek it in the Special Forums for MODDING.

 

This forum is for the Vanilla Game.
