Game Lag Issues


Recommended Posts

I got a problem after not enough virtual memory problems with BF2.

After my BF2 installation, I wanted to play GTA:SA. When I got in the game, I got a car, and drove around. I noticed some lag problems, I believe BF2 f*cked with my virtual memory settings. The problem is when I drive or swim or run or whatever but I move fast, my sound & graphics lags every 2-3 seconds. When I just walk around the game runs very smooth.


I tried setting on lowest settings, nothing works..

I even ran a performance test for RAM, everything seems ok.


• What platform: PC

• What version number of GTA: SA: 1.0

• What CPU and its speed: AMD Athlon 64 3000+

• How much RAM, also what kind (DDR, SDRAM) and speed: 333Mhz 1024MB RAM

• What video card: ATI Radeon 9600XT With updated drivers.

• Which version of Windows: WinXP SP2

• Which DirectX version: DirectX 9.0c

• What sound card: Realtek '97

• History: I reinstalled the game twice. It worked before without any issues, everything was smooth before my BF2 installation.

• Screenshots: No.



EDIT: It also stutters when it's about in the middle of game loading. (The bar thingy)

Maybe your disk is f*cked? If not you have a very common sound card problem it might not be directX9 compatible if thats not it you'll have to buy a new one confused.gif
