Hello TTG,

If people don't already know about the LAg problem on PC for Rivals basically the game is capped at 30FPS, I was given the code below to get rid of the lag:

-GameTime.MaxSimFps 18 -GameTime.ForceSimRate 18+

It worked great. then... when I crash the car it doesn't move anywhere and floats, the wheels spin. I have to restart the game to get it to work again. I will post my PC specs below. This problem doesn't occur withoutt hat code but the game is extremely sluggish.

Things I have tried:

Clean booting
Updating my Nvidia drivers
changing the FPS number in that code above
Trying not to crash -____-
Playing in windowed mode
Lowering the quality and resolution

PC Specs:

EVGA GTX 570
AMD Athlon X2 2.3GHz
Windows 7 professional 64bit
4gb ram
500GB HDD
Corsair 750W PSU (Modular)

All help will be appreciated alot! Thanks guys.

I would say your video card needs upgrading. Intel is much better than AMD. You can check if your computer meets the requirements.

I know it's not my requirements, it's the fact that the game is hardcapped, it's sorting out the problem when I crash and the car starts to float.

So a Pentium is better than an FX 8350? Didn't think so. Neither company is better than the other. AMD are smaller, and produce both CPUs AND GPUs and are able to compete at high levels.

It could be a CPU bottleneck, or a problem with the game. Have a look on google and see if anyone else is having the problem.

My AMD rig runs it fine. No lagg

OP: Your cpu is outdated. You may want to upgrade it. I suggest [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

He'd need a new motherboard too.

Thanks for the reply

Baring in mind my sh*t specs. It runs everything ultra:s

But, I'm not here to argue what runs what. I contacted EA and they said it should run fine and it is an ingame problem. thanks for any advice or whatever from you guys. But I'm simply putting this out there for people that are looking for a fix like me. Yet still this game is unplayable and I've had it a month, so I'm going to sell my origin account.
