rf2 performance: Keeping it Fresh






Keep rf2 Clean


Easy and auto-install as implemented with rf2's mod manager also means we get more lazy then we already are. Before you know it there is a ton of stuff installed you don't even use or completely forgot about.
I have no info on whether this will effect rf2's performance in any way but as per electronic computers, it probably does.

And it wont hurt keeping it clean either. so remove cars and tracks that you don't use, remove older versions when a new one arrives, and remove those pesky vmods!
You can do it once every 2 months and spends 4 hours on it all, or do it regularly as a routine and safe yourself some time.
Note: Installed files are installed. You do not have to keep content inside the packages folder. when removed from packages the content will still work. (but do yourself a favour and back them up somewhere else in case you need to re-install rf2)


Re-install rf2


A fresh install can do wonders if you have been auto-updating Builds before.
The first few times reinstalling rf2 is a bit of a pita but soon enough its going to be effortless and fairly quick.

The auto-update feature in rf2 when a new build is released is pretty great. and can be used without problems. you can also install rf2Lite over an existing installation to update. Just realise a fresh install will be the safest bet to ensure rf2 performs as it should.


rf2 Race Settings


The sim has some pretty dynamic features which also can influence performance.

Its nice to have those but if you are struggling with rf2 you might want to avoid going wild on these things. (don't forget to change all active sessions, changing practise settings wont automatically change Race settings) (this go's for servers as well)
A good standard setting would be 2PM, Sunny, Clear.


3GB Switch


When running a 32bit OS you can increase memory available using this trick.

"The 3Gb switch is often used to fix memory problems in 32bit windows environments (increases the program memory allocation).

Enable the 3GB switch on Windows Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit)
Right-click Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /set Increaseuserva 3072"
Restart the computer.

Disable the 3GB switch on Windows Vista and Windows 7 (32-bit)
Right-click on Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /deletevalue Increaseuserva"
Restart the computer."
