lagging program

Post by Yodaddy » Wed Dec 26, 2007 3:32 am

I downloaded the newest version of BZ after installing windows XP......it lags badly....it worked better with windows 98. I disabled anti-virus and the firewall protection and it still doesn't run fast enough...

Verify that you have the latest version of your video driver installed.

How would one go about doing that, blast? [/newb]

Also, do you have dial up per chance, Yodaddy?

low fps

No, I have high speed cable. I think I'm gonna have to upgrade the whole computer to get better fps. The motherboard and video card probably can't keep up with XP.... It's a good thing I didn't go with Vista.

I have XP, but mine lags because of connection problems (dial up, *cough*), not video processing problems. I bet a lot of it has to do with the computer itself, not the program on it. I have a Dell, and it runs several games and programs my friend's custom-made PC (with XP) doesn't.

I tried on vista and mac os x tiger(version 10.4) but when I played the average lag was 697milliseconds, so I got kicked out of many servers.(especially when I'm on a rampage or killing spree) :| :|
