I got oblivion a few days ago and the game is absolutly spectacular...When it works. I have an issue but im not entirely sure which part of my comp is to blame(if my comp even is to blame). All the animations in the game slow down Alot for a few seconds, then they work for a few seconds then they slow down, it just keeps doing this over and over, the charcters don't move any whule this is happening, and the music starts skipping and looping. The framerate stays fine, i can look around and such as if nothing was wrong. These stops can almost make the game un-playable, and to miss out on this would be just...uhg. Some times it works great, no animation screw ups, n FPs lag(this being on 800X600 resolution, with all textures on high, distant lands and everything on, no AA, and a low specular distance((what is that!?!?!).)
Specs 1gb of ram about 78 gb hard disk space left Nvidia 6200 with 256 mb of ram a 2.1 gigahertz processor(I think)(the can you run it thing said something like 2.1 gigahertz rated at 2.8? what does that mean!?!!)
I know my processor is the Weakest part of my comp, how much is it to upgrade, as I suspect that it's the problem.
Yes,your processor is most likely your problem.But also try to turn down your graphics output or take some of the graphical options down a notch.
It's not the graphics settings, i've tried...
