Duke Nukem runs REALLY slowly



I grabbed the Duke Nukem demo from another thread in this forum. I think it's a great game, but it runs WAY to slowly on my computer.(1000MHz Athlon T-Bird, GF-2MX, 512MB ram)

Another thing is that the game speeds up when there are few objects in view. I tried running the game in compatibility mode, but it didn't work any better.

if you mean the new demo it's because of your GeforceMX....MX's are on the way out I hate to say, they can't run the next gen and even some current Gen games at acceptable framerates especially if you go above 1024x768

The reason it runs faster when less stuff is in view is because it doesn't have to draw as much....try running serious sam 2 and watch how bad it gets when all the monsters swarm in, sorry man


Yeah, I know. Scierously concidering buying GF3 or GF4, but my wallet is too thin at the moment.

But I was talking about the CLASSIC Duke Nukem. Can't understand why that lags :confused:

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

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!
