I am getting very close to give up PS2. I love the game, but on my machine in any decent size battle I get 15fps. Low activity places 30-40 FPS. This was much better before GU4, but it was also an on/off thing. One big battle totally playable, next one is a slideshow. I cannot afford to upgrade and it is highly doubtful that will be an improvement, because the FPS is actually getting WORSE. In the last few weeks I actually could participate in a decent size battle (if vehicles were not too abundant), but now it is completely unplayable. All I can do is ghost cap. It is the CPU constraint, so lowering graphics does absolutely nothing, it is already at low. This is the #1 problem with the game by FAR. I bet that most players that quit, quit because low FPS. You cannot play a shooter below 30 frames per sec. Please, please fix this, do something for CPU.
