I bought and installed BF1942 this weekend. I have the following system: P4 1.7GHz 512 Ram GeForce4Ti4200-128MB using the 44.03 Drivers (I think that is the correct version number) DX9

I loaded it and just to get a basic idea of the game started a single player campaign game. The lag is horrible. In all seriousness, it takes about 15 seconds to turn 180 degrees. I backed all the settings back to minimum and nothing changes.

I have downloaded and installed the latest patch for the game (1.31 I think??) with no improvements. Any ideas?

Wow... that's bad lag for sure.

Go to the: "Problems, Errors, Help" forum and check-out the "A (Re)Installation Proceedure, the last resort" posting.

It has a few things that can go wrong with the installation.

Also, try running the game with the Sound Setting "All Sound Disabled" to see if you have a sound conflict. It's all too common.

If runnung XP, the Properties of the BF1942.exe file may be set to "Windows 98 Compatability"... turn that off.

Keep in touch..... good luck.:agreed:

If your playing in SP and you have that much lag then lower the ammount of bots you have in the game.

@vonstriker or anyone else, what should the compatibility be set on if you are using windows xp for best performance?

Backwards compatibility is one of those "Good Ideas Gone Bad" things in XP to make it work on any program, and is OK for progs like MS Office (1995) and ol' Lotus 123. But for gaming its a NOT! It has been known to default to this setting on many installations. HerrDi
