The game is REALLY laggy!

I have the problem that my game is pretty laggy. It started with an error where the sky constantly flickered and the menu appeared messy with horizontal and vertical lines as well as annoying character maps. Then i installed the newest driver aviable, and that dissapeared. But then it started to lag a lot! I re-installed the game without radiostations, and all that, but still it keeps lagging.

 

Im playing on a HP dv6000 with Windows vista.

And what .set file are you talking about?

notify.gif Was that in your own words?! If not, read the bugfix list - it had same words you used. And lag has something to do with a slow computer; was the game lagging before you updated drivers? If so, then Vinne is right about deleting the [.set] file.

If you go to your My Documents folder. Look for GTA Vice City User Files, then just delete the GTA_VC.set in the GTA Vice City User Files Folder.

Okay well give us more advanced Specs of your computer.

 

Screenshots from the game.

 

Screenshots from device manager etc.

Maybe because you forgot to lower the quality of the graphics settings?

 

Anyway, deleting the [.set] file should have worked. If not, then uninstall fully the Intel GMA drivers and reinstall.

 

I think it must because you downloaded the wrong drivers... did you got it exactly from here? -> http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Fi...D=2301&lang=eng

 

BTW, you have Intel GMA 945 like what you said, not 965.

Let's see if it is really the drivers: try System Restore or do a driver roll-back. If it works, then there seem to be some settings in the newer driver's graphics control panel that was change to some other default.

No, I want to see you uninstall/reinstall the game fully.

I've heard that Vista is very resource intensive. You have a decent lot of RAM, but if it's being eaten up by your OS and any other processes you may have running at the same time, you might experience lag.

 

Shut down any non-essential processes before running VC - antivirus and the like aren't necessary.

Can you please check the device manager to see that your graphics card drivers are installed properly, seems like it's that to me. Have you tried compatibility mode?
