Eastern blitz doesn't lag for me, it runs around 30-60 fps. But I noticed something. If I disable hardware acceleration for sound (in game settings) my fps drops badly, at least 10-15 fps drop which makes game unplayable around the city.
hardware eccel. takes the " game sounds" load off your cpu and puts in on your sound card. free'ing up cpu usage = better fps disabling it puts the load back on your cpu = lower fps
exactly, what I was trying to say is, ENABLE it if you can
I think it comes down to system ram and the amount of objects on this map.
Holy Thread resurrection batman!, I know, but to bury the thread forever yes 1.5Gb of ram (went out and bought another 512Mb) is good for this map. With 1.5Gb of ram I can even play a 64 bot match with no lag whereas before I had trouble playing online with say, 26 ppl on this map, even just creating an empty server and running around, get stuttering here & there, especially in town. I haven't tried it online yet, seems some servers don't rotate this map. :(
Both these maps give my computer a hernia :bawl:
I didn't make it!
It dont lag at me... The only thing is that ALL the maps have a MASSIVE load time... 10-15 mins :(
10-15 min is way too long, somethings wrong. What are your specs? How long takes it to load a vanilla-map?
Yeah, get more RAM. Fast.
