Helicopters slow my framerates down

Okay, I don't know if anyone else has had this problem but I have. When I play certain MODs like Frostbite or the new CENTCOM (A GIFT FROM GOD BY THE WAY LOL) everything works fine until I take a look at the helicopters. In other words, whenever the cutscenes play, showing your team being inserted via helicopter, the frame rate drops DRAMATICALLY, like it takes 5 minutes for the helicopter to land, when it would ordinarily take like 30 seconds. I'm a Mac Ghost Reconner and my system has the following stats

Powerbook G4

RAM: 1.25GB

AGP Graphics Card: GeForce FX Go5200 64MB VRAM

Hope someone has a way to alleviate my problem. Thanx fellas.

You havent got an especially powerful PC Im afraid. The dust that helis kick up are hard on system resources. The G4 is only 1.5ghz and your not running an especially high powered graphics card. And as for Centcom, the blackhawk, Huey, Cobra and AH-6 are mine, and except for the Blackhawk they are all lower in poly count that the standard GR blackhawk.

With only 16 times the texture size. ;)

I thought I mentioned that? Prehaps not, the Blackhawk and humvee are 4 times bigger than standard textures, ajd the AH-6 I cant remember what that is, I think its 512 like the standard Blackhawk, and the Huey and Cobra are twice the size. They definatly would give you a resource kick as the RSB's weight in at around 12meg for the Humvee, but Im damned if they dont look good!

I saw this sleeper, and thought, man, that boy complains both ways! :rofl:

Hey, those models are looking fantastic but I do have a bit of constructive criticism to input. I think you should go with some higher resolution textures. Most vehicles in the game have had lousy low res textures and being such large elements in the game it really stands out for me. From what I can recall, most of the vehicle textures are somewhere near the same size that the human models use, that's just not enough in my opinion. By GR standards those textures you've done look fantastic but I think you guys can pull off even better just by using higher resolution on them. Just something to consider.
