i get this strange problem everytime i play this game:
the picture is fine except the game seems to make a little 'jump' in time every second. i even get this in singleplayer so... none of the patches work 1.1 1.2 1.3 or 1.4! Plz help!! im getting desperate! i already opened my window to throw the thing out.
im running a raid system AMD 2200+, GF4 TI4800SE, 512 DDR ram, soundblaster audigy
i alrady tried to set the adio back to 22 khz and im running the latest drivers both for sound an videocard.
damn i'd like to play this game like it is ment to be:mad:
I had this same problem until I got a GeForce FX 5200 Ultra. Now I can run Batlefield 1942 on high graphics but on 800x600 res. and get no video "lag". Do you overclock your video card? If not find a program that you can overclock with because that can be a big help. If you have enough money, or want to, buy a new video card. By the way, how much memory does your video card have? If it is 64 mb it is time to upgrade. Hope I was of some help. :)

dude. no. overclocking is not the answer. i have a p4 2.53 w/512 ddr400, a ti4400, and an audigy. i run everything at 1600x1200 at max settings with musicmatch, aim, and teamspeak flawlessly. but first thing, make sure you have hardware acceleration enabled in the sound options second page. if that doesnt work then you may have some problems with your mobo. did you build the comp? if so you may not have set some bios settings accordingly. if you didnt, then did the computer come with that graphics card? then the bios still may not be set accordingly. if it came with that card, then call the ppl you bought it from. dont overclock unless you know what you are doing. it wont help any for you anyway..... hope that helps. email me if you have any more questions.

and uhh....... dont listen to that retard that posted before me. he just wants you to waste money or fry your card.
Slightly cooler than a n00b

hmm, i tried everything up max and ended up back down to the 1152/768x16 bit and it worked fine. but it wont handle 32 bit no more. and there is no diff in the detail like i thought there would be so turn try running it with 16 bit and see what happens. p-4,1.7ghz,512rambus,fortissmo2 sound card.
there is a diff between 16 bit and 32 bit.. the smoke/dust looks greeny on only 16 bit and it looks nasty
Just so you know I have to over clock because I only have a 1.6 P4. I dont have alot of ram and a good sound card. When I got my new video card the FPS was greatly improved and the choppyness went away. Overclocking helps my performence by at least 20% so speak for yourself Nazi Templar or what ever your name is. Just dont say I dont know what I am talking about please.:) Thanks no hard feelings.
Most cards of today are overclockable, the manufacturer knows the majority of us are overclockers.. its pretty hard to **** a card up nowadays unless u are a# impatient and just whack it up and hope for best b# blind
if ur going to o/c ur card do it in small steps starting with the CORE as this is where the gain is mainly to be found, As u see from sig i got a fx.. default clockspeeds are 351/702 mines 400/702 at mo.. slowly been weening the core up over last week. and yes its improved each step.
You are right Reborngg. I overclock and if you do it right you should cause no problems or conflicts. I have to be pretty slow to screw your computer by overclocking your video card. Of course you cant jack up the speeds to max that is just stupid. Overclocking is a good solution to try before buying a new video card.

Or if your a power freak
1 thing i failed to add to my previous post, COOLING! IF your going to overclock make sure ur pc is well cooled with good heat dispertion. :deal:
I forgot to mention the cooling, sorry. To over clock you must also have a good power supply. If you dont have enough power your PC wont work right.
