My entire game has constant and very major graphic-lag. i HAVE updated my drivers i HAVE set everything to the lowest setting i HAVE tried the mthod of changing the anti-aliasing setting, no luck. my graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 (256 MB memory) i use windows xp, and no, before you ask, my computer doesnt have a 32 mb hardrive, or has a virus or anything... and for proof... It runs world of warcraft and other 3D games almost smoothly, i know STL is newer, but still it shouldn't be as bad as it is. Please help someone?

I have the same problem, but only when i look at nebulas or large ships like a borg cube i have a fairly new computer with an ATI radeon 512 mb video card and my computer has 2048 mb of RAM. i really think that it is just the game that is being retarted!

thanks for the input vonfrank, seems like just a normal graphics problem in your case... perhaps try to put every possible variable down to zero, or end all un-needed processess... sounds a bit obvious, but thats all you can do, short of getting a new graphics card. Please post more, any and all input is greatly appreciated. I am going to try re-installing the program now, its probably not going to work, but its a bit of a last resort. One other thing: i think the game is very intensive, even though its from 2 years ago, and if that IS the problem, i cant think what i could do other than... get a completely new gaming computer, or something along those lines... because mine runs it SO badly, i cant imagine it could ever run it well on my computer. Thanks ppl

This is your problem. The game is so graphic demanding that if you don't have a GeForce 7000 or above graphic gard, you will have lags. So the only way to get rid of those lags is to get a better graphic card.
