Default Halo TI4200 Performance.

Just wondering how others have found Halo to run on a ti4200 card. My system
is an AthlonXP2000 512mb ddr ram and a 64mb geforce ti4200 card that is
overclocked. Outdoor sections run good but indoor sections where there are
lots of bumpmapping and pixelshader effects run a lot slower. I have tried
latest 52.16 drivers and found they do help performance a lot but still runs
laggy. Is there much difference betweeh the 64mb and 128mb ti4200 card in
regards to performance and also actual memory storage for current games?
Anyone got any ideas for speeding up Halo performance or does the conversion
just suck? Thanks.. Jamaster..

since the gf4 is not a "DX9" card. Run the game with -use14 for shader 1.4
or -use11 for shader 1.1.

Ex.
"..\halo.exe -use11" for version 1.1 shader
"..\halo.exe -use14" for version 1.4 shader

alot of people have gotten much better performance out of halo this way..

1.1 and 1.4 is driver dependent so try both and see which one works better
with your driver version.

You have some issues... some back ground tasks of some sort.

I have ALL settings on (this is the demo version, but it has the
COMPLETE first level and a single map Multipler mode) and I get good
frame rate on my lowly Ti4200. note: 52.16 drivers enables some
effects... but even with the 30.82 drivers the game played good.

KT400 chipset (not much better than your KT3. Which I have in the same
KT3 Ultra board in my #2 PC with a borrowed GF5-5200 PCI - it plays it
surprisingly "okay" with an AMD 2000).

512mb DDR 333mhz
MSI Ti4200-64 (not overclocked) - Det 52.16
AMD XP2500 @ 2000mhz
