2 of my other friends have game but when we go into a game mine takes about 2 to 3 minutes longer to load map. I have new computer with pentium 4 proccesor and 256 MBs of RAM. Anyone help out why takes so long?

I believe it depends on your Hard Drive access capability,(ATA)Mine is an ata100, and my screens load up pretty fast, say about 10 seconds.

Get more Memory,

I had 256 first and it took a looooooooooooooooooooong time to load a map. Then I upgraded to 768, and couldn't play at all.

Turned out I had a rotting 512 mem stick, so got a new one and it's fine now. about 10 secs too.

I have a 256 and it takes me a long time so just a stick of 512 will do it? And how much does it cost.

Dont think you can go any lower then 640x480. Another stick of ram might help as well.

Mem is cheap these days. I have 1Gb PC2700 DDR, loads up super fast. Cost me $200AU, probably less than $100US.

have fun
