I just have one simple question.
Does anyone out there play Flashpoint Resistance 1.96 (or less) on a Notebook computer, and is happy about the Graphics performance.
I just (four days ago) bought a (2.8Ghz, 512MB RAM, 128MB mobility radeon 9000 IGP, WinXP) notebook, and the animations and gameplay freezes every 5-10 seconds, and the HD light comes on.
Even my old desktop (1.2Ghz, 256MB RAM, 64MB Nvidia Geforce II, Win98) didn't have this problem, even though it was of course lagging more when building huge missions.
Just putting one unit on Desert Island
No addons (except BIS original)
Reducing view distance, frame rate, visual quality, terrain detail settings to minimum (in all different combos) in Ofp
Changing to Performance or Quality on the video card
Changing swap files to min 750MB max 1500MB (instead of 576 and 1152)
priority: system cache instead of program
Unchecking disk index service
Deactivate autoprotect (Norton antivirus 2004)
Keeping the Notebook cool
Put Ofp on highest priority in Taskmanager (disasterous)
Minimize the "saving energy" functions
Controlled that Direct X works
Have not tried changing AGP to 64MB (Don't know how, and also it kind of defeats the purpose of a 128MB video card...right or wrong?)
If someone doesn't have this problem, could you please let me know, and tell me about your system ?
Or is it just a fact that Video cards sharing RAM memory (like mine does) are useless when playing the best game existing ?
Could there be a conflict from using DirectX 9 ?
Thank you all you lucky ******** who don't have this problem.
