View Full Version : Game pausing, hard lockup
09-28-2006, 09:10 PM
Similar to others I am having hard lockups and lots of pauses in game. I am also seeing the very long pause when typing in text for my name or a save game. Rotating building with the keyboard has pauses of several seconds.
Running 1024X768 with game settings at best performance.
Normally I have now problems with other games like WOW or Oblivion.
I would be thankful for any help.

Try using a much lower screen resolution like 1024x768 and a refresh rate of 60Hz and see if that helps.
You may have to lower your in-game video settings to get better performance. I have a Radeon 9800 Pro too, but I don't have the full game yet. The demo runs very well on my system but not perfectly smooth, but well enough. I have the demo running on very high video settings too. So your problem will be interesting to me to see if you get it resolved.

The demo ran fine for me also with in game setting higher.
I am running at 1024x768 and I have all games setting at the lowest (best performance).
I will try the refresh rate -- I think I am using 75hz now.

This is getting very strange. I loaded FRAPS to see what kind of frame rate I was getting. Suddenly the major lag is gone. No problems entering text in the save game screen. Rotating building works like it did in the demo.
I tried it 3 times. With FRAPs no major problems. Without FRAPs the problems come back.
I have no idea what is going on.
PS Framerate stayed in the high 70s+
