Video card diagnostic utility

I have been having trouble with a game recently; i get a drastic framerate drop in a certain area and only under certain conditions that shouldn’t produce such an effect.

Anyway, i heard about a utility that would allow me to turn off certain graphical functions/features in order to diagnose exactly what was causing the problem, but i was unable to get the name of the program.

I was wondering if any of you may have heard of such a thing, and know where i could obtain it.

thanks :smiley:

Try dxdiag.
Open up the start menu > Run > type in ‘dxdiag’
You can test out your video card there. It may not tell you what the problem was but you can then compare the games minimum system requirements to the results.
