I'm useing cats 5.1 with Frame buffer, smooth shadows, grass, AA @ 2 and AF @ 4 and the game has been smooth (I mean really smooth. there are still some frame loss when there are alot of particle effects, but I'm getting better proformance than I ever did in KotOR) right until I reached
Everthing was fine then all of a sudden it slowed to a halt. I figured that it must have something to do with Framebuffer effects so I turned it off went back to the game and no change so I turned it back on and everything was back to being smooth again
I have encountered it a couple more times and turning off and on frame buffer stops the frame loss.
I also encountered a total game freeze then crash once. There wasn't any warning signs it just froze and 30 seconds later it crashed.
