Non-downloadable methods.

Good ol' windows classic. :Kappa:

First off, go ahead and open up the start menu.


Next, click 'Control Panel'.


Then, click on the icon named 'System'.


Proceed by clicking on the 'Advanced System Settings' option.


Continue on and click on the 'Settings' button under the 'Performance' tab.


Check the option 'Adjust for best performance'.

Then click 'Okay' and you're good to go, if you think it looks ugly, just check the 'Use visual styles' box.

Power-Plans. (good for laptops)

Go back into the Control-Panel and click 'Power Options'.


Then select the 'High Performance' Option.


Next, simply click the back-button and you're done! (sometimes a restart is required)

Graphic Drivers..​

Go ahead and open up the start-menu again, click on the search bar.


Type the words 'device' into the search bar and click on 'Device Manager'. (their are several other ways to get the the device manager so do whatever you feel is fastest. :))


Once device-manager has opened, click on the little arrow by 'Display Adapters'.


Right click on the GPU that appears and select 'Update driver software'.


Select the option on the top.


If you get this message, you may need to download a manager for your GPU like mine or just download a driver update manually from your GPU manufacturer website.


Two little tweaks.

Disabling desktop icons prior to launching SA:MP can sometimes help to improve FPS.


Changing your resolution to 800x600 can also help.

Downloads.


http://www.razerzone.com/gamebooster/ - Some say this makes no difference, but I notice frame-difference in certain games.


http://memory.dataram.com/products-and- ... re/ramdisk - RAMDISK can be quite complex so it'd be useful to look up a tutorial on how to use it.

( This is my first guide so sorry if it's a little shabby. :p )
