Rust runs terrible on my pc.


CPU: AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core Processor (2.5ghz)
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 5450 (1gb)
RAM: 4x1gb 800mhz

My issue is when I join a server I get on average 6 FPS. I meet all the minimum requirements listed on the steam page. Could anyone help me with this issue?

are you playing on lowest settings? Also, those are quite low specs, and the ram might not be enough with the old specs to run this game. Also turn off grass

Damn, your rig is worse than mine (HD 5850, 2x2GB 800 MHz, Intel 2 Quad 2,66 GHz).
But I can run 1920x1080 with 30FPS on fantastic.
I think your CPU is the main problem.

I am playing on lowest settings with grass off. I can get 30 fps if I run with -force-feature-level-9-1.

But, I’d rather see the sky.

Are you running windows 8?

Search the forum for solutions, here my prev post

Dude, you need at least 4Gb of ram
Proccesor 2.8 GHz
Amd 7450.

I have an AMD 6450 and i overclocked it and it works badly.

Windows 8.1

Phenom is a pretty low power processor, I would venture to guess that’s the real problem as Rust seems to be pretty CPU intensive compared to a lot of games.

AimJunkies Rust Hacks – A non-detectable set of customizable hacks for the game Rust! (If you have any concerns about detectability check the section about Vac and CheatPunch.)

Video Presentation:

-ESP ( Wall hacks )
This is done in several ways, you can have a red circle marking all people in your render distance or your can set a distance yourself. The second option is having the players be outlined in a white line in your render distance. The third option is to have the player’s names appear above their head in your render distance. Notes: It now works with crates and animals which can be enabled in the menu.

  • Night Vision
    Tired of the pitch black? Lighten up! With this amazing night vision you will able to see everything in the dead of night. Just press Control + N. Note: The sky will be slightly distorted because your video settings are being adjusted.

  • Game Time Clock
    For those who are bad at gauging time, a 24 hour dial clock was added. There will be a digital in game clock located at the lower right of your screen that can be enabled. The clock will tell you what time it is in the game.

  • Cross-hair
    Choose from over 22 different cross hairs, there is one for everyone. If there isn’t one you love then email us a picture and we will add it to the next update given we like it.

  • Aim Bot
    Set a pixel radius around the middle of your screen that will lock on to a player once they enter. The radius is adjustable to size and pull strength. You choose whether to lock on the player’s body or head. The reason why you would want it on body and not the head is because the shotguns are not precise.

  • NoClip
    Be able to fly through the world through player built walls, mountains, and the ground. You can also grab air drops before they even touch the ground.

  • God Mode
    Be able to disable all damage. After enabling godmode you will take no damage from the environment, players, or hunger/thirst. However, you can still type the suicide command in console if you wish.

  • Speed Adjustment
    Be able to adjust the speed your character walks and runs at. This will also work with noclipping speed.

  • VAC and CheatPunch Detection Checker
    Afraid of getting banned? Don’t be, there is no internal injection to the client so there is nothing VAC can capture. As an extra precaution we added a checker that verifies on startup that your current version hasn’t been detected yet. This checker is real-time and checks every time you launch Rust. Recently CheatPunch has been added to the anti-hack systems of Rust. Luckily our software is already capable of bypassing this. If our software is ever detectable the software will automatically disable itself before you join a server. This prevents you from being banned regardless if it is detectable or not. If our software does become detectable (which it never has) we will update it within a day.

  • Simple and Stylish Menu
    All the settings are changed through your menu that is accessed by pressing F1 to go into your inventory in game then by pressing control + B.

  • Updated Often
    You get updates for as long as we support this project ( a long time ) . Your client will notify you in time of an update and you will receive an email.

I think this is your problem. I have horrible FPS problems on my laptop which features windows 8. However when I setup Windows 7, I no longer had any problems.

Have you tried disabling grass? Goto console (F1 by default). Then type:
grass.on false

Also I do agree you should attempt to review what Steph-Rust posted here:

Last I could say is to use Resource monitor in the background while you play rust to see if it’s in fact hardware related (which I somewhat doubt):

Best luck. :slight_smile:

What the…?

Playing in windowed mode will also slightly boost fps. As others have said, try starting game on “Fast” setting and in console type “grass.on false”.

Banned for that ? Got to be kidding.

Are you sure your computer is acctualy selecting your gfx card and not the integrated one?

(User was permabanned for this post ("alt of GavGod'sGift" - postal))

Yes, I am sure because if I look into my catalyst, my gpu usage goes from 0 to 99 when I start rust.

[editline]21st February 2014[/editline]

I play in windowed mode with grass off. I also start the game with the “Fastest” setting.

I take it you have a laptop possibly OP?

been like that since 2005 and FP is better that way because of it. Bans are warnings.

that and honestly quoting spammers just makes everything worse and helps the spammers

If you or your friends are computer savy, get Ubuntu loaded on that thing and try running it through ubuntu.

What difference would ubuntu make?

[editline]21st February 2014[/editline]

J1NX, I have a desktop PC.

What other games do you play on your rig and what FPS do you get in them.

Trying Ubuntu now.

[editline]21st February 2014[/editline]

I play LoadOut, I get roughly 30fps, arma 2 dayz mod, roughly 20 fps on lowest settings minecraft with 70fps…

[editline]21st February 2014[/editline]

I also play L4D2 on medium settings with 30 fps.
