ok, ive got kinda a lag problem when ever i make an army of about 3 squads it lags A LOT! wherever they are . and it really stinks i dont get to see any combat without lag. PlZ tell me how i could fix this problem. My PC is 1.6GHz proccessor 504 ram and NVidia Geforce 4 MX4000 64MB im am willing to overclock if i have to! and in the game my setings are Models low Textures High, FX Detail High, terrain low, world events low, sound medium for both, shaddows off, full 3D camera on,and blood on. PLZ tell what i have to do to make it less lagy!
try setting EVERYTHING to low. might help. oh, and the full 3D camera is a resource hogging bitch. turn it off.
You pretty much need a new rig to play this game. Your GFX Card sux man, and you could do with a bit more ram, and your processor aint the best either (Unless its AMD). The reason it laggs is because (1) Like AzH said, 3D camera is a resource hogging bitch, and (2) This is one meaty game, your dealing with multiple units which are very detailed, all doing different things at one. All have death or killing cinematics etc. Their website reccomended specs are fairly high.

Ok, Without jumping on and saying "YOUR GFX AND CPU SUXORS TEH BIG ONE", set it all to looooooow and turn down your Resolution. If your still lagging you can actually go to 640 x 480, it's in the Readme. But also jsut use the built in thing that tells you what you should be running at, unless you already did that. Also turn off colors in MP, that slows it down.
i got the lag prob fixed had to turn off full 3D camera and put textures on low NOOOOOOO!
Try getting a new GFX card prefoabely a ATI RADEON 9800 or at least a 9600.
As all the people say, you should het a new video card, that is what I did too.
Yeah, i bought a Gig of memory and an ATI 9600 just for this game, and I can run it like a dream on everything high, with full 3d camera.
