why the hell is this game choppy in my system

#1Hi_OkayPosted 7/16/2009 8:07:48 PM
tested it on canyourunit.com, only thing that didn't pass was the CPU. the video card is meh but it has all the required attributes, (shaders, 3d accelerator etc) so why is this game so choppy and slow? i put it on the absolute lowest graphical settings and it still ran bad.

Game runs smooth and isn't very demanding, even at high resolutions.

What are your specs and resolution?

windows vista home premium 32-bit
3 gigs RAM
intel core 2 duo processors 2.00GHz
some intel express video card, it's decent enough to run cod5
and my res is 1280x800

so idk why the hell it's not running smoothly
re4 was the same, my computer was more than capable of running it, but the game was constantly flashing. but out of my 23 other pc games, they all run smoothly, i can run oblivion pretty well, and i can run cod5 smoothly on low graphics

Your video card is horrible. Please, if you know nothing about computers, please don't say that your computer is capable of running something.

and don't say i know nothing about computer, i know a lot. i know my video card isn't great but it should be able to play this game at least on the LOWEST GRAPHICS, it can't even do that. i'm suspecting something went wrong in the installation

Oblivion is 3 years old and CoD5 is based on a very old engine. It can scale back to almost CoD1 levels of graphics.

Yes, as do most video cards from the past 4 years or so. Shader Model 3.0 has been around since 2004/5 and Hardware T&L is a mainstay of any video card from the past 4 generations.

This statement is at odds with your next.

And what do you base this assumption on?

Yes, that's right, the game didn't install the "optimisation" file and that's why the game is running slowly. Obviously.

Try lowering resolution as at higher resolution youre graphics get slower.

I have to agree with Teh_Roffler, an intergrated card is terrible. Maybe if you knew more about it (VRAM, specifically) or even its model number it could shed more light on the situation. However, I think I can say pretty definitively you will never run Prototype smoothly above the lowest resolution with all the settings on low, if it runs on that.
