TMNF runs very slow on Vista

Post by priince » 17 May 2008 06:47

Hi,
I have Vista Home Premium
Duo Core 2 1.66GHz
3GB RAM
256 MB nVidia GeForce 8400M GS

It runs just perfect on my old Win XP desktop, but is just dead slow on my Vista laptop..

Any idea why? Any help/suggestions on this issue?

Thanks,
Prince

You probably should tell us what settings you are running the game on, the new shadows are pretty framerate hungry :)

i have exactly the same prob.

my laptop has:

duo core 2.00 ghz
3gig ram
geforce 8600m gs 512mb!!

even with that he can run it at minimun settings very difficult :s

and ingame if i want to chat i press space then i have to wait about 10secs then i can type and when i press enter i'll have to wait another 10secs before it appears. while i do that even my time is allways ignored.
it really s**k :?

Ps: its not my internet connection: 10 mbps and up 512Kbps so.

hope someone can help me :wink:

Everything was default except I tried changing the resolution and Performance..

I tried the minimum resolution and Faster performance but that didn't work.. It takes a long long time before I can do something.. It doesnt just slow down during gameplay but right from where I start the game and log in, everything is just slow.

My friend has XP on his laptop and lower config than me but still the game runs very smoothly.

I am guessing its a Vista issue but not sure what might be the cause..

I discovered the 3D-modus is also framerate hungry. Try switching in-game (right-above in your screen) and see the difference!
