I have massive ammounts of screen lag and cant get it fixed. I know it has nothing to do with my connection because i have the same exact problem on condition zero (singleplayer). It alwasy plays fine for 2 minutes and then lags real bad for about 30 seconds.

Specs:
Windows XP Home
1.8 GHZ P4
512 RAM
80 GB
Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro

Any ideas?

Thanks,
tiny

Could be alot of things. Make sure your HD is defraged and more RAM the better for any gaming. :) Also could be you need to tweak some settings but since it happens on both on and offline more apt to think its either HD fragmented or its swapping from RAM to HD.

I have been having a few problems with the latest catalysts myself, but no kind of lag, what versions are you running?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
