Hey,

Im having a slight problem with jedi outcast II on my windows xp, I dont understand it. Like, sometimes when I run it, it runs smooth and normal. But sometimes when I start it, its jerky like mad, the mouse takes 10 seconds to move from one place to another, it frezes and its really anooying. The problem is usualy solved if i reboot, or restart the game several times, but I dunno what causes it.

My comp specs:
Windows xp pro
128mb ram
700mhz, intel p3

Thanks for your help.

Yeah that might be the problem, I have a shitty onboard video card I got built in with the mobo, and I got 128mb ram....But I dunno, I do close all running appz b4 I play the game, and sometimes even when I gotta lotta programs running, and play the game, it runs smooth :-/

As well as closing any background programs your not using, make sure any firewall and anti virus software is disabled.

Also try changing the priority of the game to "realtime", do this in task manager, on processes.Your system. is within the minimum specs for the game so you should be able to play it.. ok maybe not at its highest graphics level.. but it should still adequite.

Ignore the comments about getting new hardware, what you have will run the game.

Well, with XP, 128 megs will not cut it for the latest games. Have you looked at getting more memory and/or updating your mouse drivers?

As for the JKII problem I had a similar problem, I got the update for it and now it runs perfect.

It is true the game has a few too many cheats, but the gameplay is wicked. Killing people with the lightsaber and like cutting off their arms, heads, hands etc .. it's sweet!!

First off JK2 is a great game.

Second 128 is probably not enough for XP.

Third on-board graphics get the donkey nutz. Get an AGP card or voodoo5 pci if you only have a pci slot.

you need more memory too, 128 is way to little for just xp,let alone a game like jedi, the vid card can add to it too......ram is cheap so its worth the upgrade.......;)

I agree, some extra RAM would help.. 128MB is good, but if you can afford it grad a 256MB.. also onboard video chipsets generally lick.. if you can, try to assign more system memory to video, or as mentioned get a PCI or AGP video card..

staw away from onboard video cards, actually in fact stay away from any mobo that has little features onboard such as sound etc... (except of course for the Nvidia Nforce :))

EMPIRETANK JK2 is a great game. You probably think it sucks because you quit to easily and were a n00b to everyone else. You sure would be a n00b to me thats for sure. LOL.... And what you trying to say with this "at least I have a life." Don't make me laugh..... I can tell by just how you act that you do NOT have a better life than anybody in here. That includes me. If your here only to insult people like us and not help others... Than you can just take your teenage ass right out of this place. Have fun with your so called "Better Life"

Sorry to bring back an old topic but I know the answer...

I had the same problem. It seems jk2 slows down after windows media has been run. If your having the problem restart and it works fine...before you run WM. I haven't the faintest idea why, but that's what I found.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
