Game is running so slow!!!!

[Post New]by Robilyn on May 12, 11 1:04 AM
Is any one else having this problem? The game is running so slow. I don't know what the problem is. I would love it, if any one out there has any suggestions. I want to buy this game. Thank you.

The whole game is running slow. I also turned off the custom cursor. It helped a little, but not enough to really notice.

I have a brand new PC and all is running fine.

Are you sure your PC has the right requirements for the game (see requirements on main game page).

Have you tried a system shut down and restart (shut down so Windows has to load from scratch - not just a reboot)?
Also, are your video drivers, DirectX, etc.. up to date?
Also, that was a good suggestion by dobbie - maybe there was a hiccup in the install and an uninstall and re-install would help.

If none of this helps, I would recommend you talk to BFG CS and see what they suggest...? I didn't check the tech thread here - maybe others are having problems and maybe the mods have posted a possible solution?

Good luck getting it to run properly!

Hi there,
I have already posted a suggestion elsewhere, but will repeat it here.
This game seems to access a lot of RAM in its play, so you might need to close all non-important applications - especially any web-browser if you still have it running.
This should help.
Cheers.

I have found the same thing. It is very slow. I uninstalled it and restalled it but it still was slow. Don't think I will be buying it as I take ages just to get one hidden area cleared.

Hi there Robilyn,
Sorry we couldn't help. Like Shadowfax, I have a relatively new computer and have very few problems with games here, but I have seen a lot of posts regarding probolems with game play.
Cheers.

I think it would help everyone if you would let us know what system you are running. I have Windows XP and always look for problems that other people are having with that system in any games. It makes a difference to me as to downloading or waiting for a fix.

I have windows 7 premium home edition. I have noticed in the requirements it calls for DirectX 9. I have DirectX 11. I think maybe that might be the problem. I have been reading up on the internet, and it says you can also install Direct X 9. Because for some reason, some games are still made that need DirectX 9 to run. I will wait for CS. I am not installing anything on my computer, until I talk to them.

I'm having the same problem. I'm running Vista and don't usually have this problem.
I was so excited about a new, good game and now it's impossible to play because of the slowness.

I am having the same problem with this game running slow on my PC which has Vista on it. I downloaded in to my laptop which has Windows 7 on it and it runs great. I am going to check out what the issue with vista might be. I have found out that I can run certain games on windows 7 but not on vista. Will keep everyone posted on what I find out. I really dont want to play this game on my laptop screen is way to small.

kayen59, I sure hope you find out what the problem is with Vista. I'm running it also and usually have no problems like this when running games. Every so often (like once a year) a game will be put out that runs impossibly slow on my computer. It's soooo frustrating!

It's running slow for me too. I have Vista. Clicking off the custom cursor helped a little.

Ditto, Ditto, Ditto - I am also running Vista and have never had this problem before. Tried everything that was suggested. This looks like a great game and we can't play it, let alone who would buy it under these circumstances. BFG will loose money on this one!
