for instance starting with an upgrade of your main harddrive... you need space for your swap file...
Hey! Well you could do with upgrading your Graphics card, that is the same one I have, and my computer is about 7 / 8 years old now. But I don't think that is the problem here, as BC works fine with me. I can add up to 20 ships and it will only lag a bit. Oh, and I have got a 1.79GHz AMD Athlon 64 processor, along with 256mb of ram.
There isn't really any obvious reasons why your game is going so slow, so maybe you should check your computer for any viruses or malware etc. :)
@ Darkdeath, not every problem is a virus.
most likely this is because you need to upgrade, that would have to be a very old computer to have those specs, KM1 and the SGpack are not designed for low end specs. for starters I suggest, like henze, that you get a much bigger C drive, also you might need much more RAM. that graphics card is also rather old, but it should be ok with all but the latest models.
Another thing you might want to check is if the game is using the Graphics card in T&L mode, which can severely slow your performance, also, try running the game in Low color depth
what is T&L mode? and low color depth stops some of the ships from working
Browneh;4181876what is T&L mode?
in a nutshell, T&L mode, or Transform and Lighting mode, is a graphics card setting in which the card takes over more of the graphical memory load from the Processor and the RAM.
and no, color depth shouldn't effect which ships you can use, you are probably thinking of Model and Texture detail, color depth just determines whether the game uses 24 bit or 32 bit color to display the textures.
well I'm finding in MP KM1.0 color depth on high lags me in game which is strange yet in single player no lag at all. Strange lol 4200X2 Athlon 1 GB Corsair XMS 2225 DDR MSI NX6600GT 250GB SATA2 HD
