Solved: 5 Months, 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 3 Hours, 3 Minutes, 1 Second ago Amnesia frame rate drops and LAG.

I run Amnesia on Windows 7 64 bit with a Intel® HD graphics, it's all fine and dandy until I reach a certain area where my frame rate drops and my game lags. I have put all the settings on low and turned off the SSAO, but still, there is lag. Oh and please don't say "Get a new graphics card" because I'm not. Any help will be great, thanks.

Edit: Yes I use that vertical sync thing, but still.........LAG.

Have you tried updating your video card drivers?

If so, and it still doesn't work, I'm sorry to say this, but...


You're gonna have to get a new graphics card.

Okay, well I'm screwed, but there is one thing, I did not really turn Areo off (I believe.) You see when you right click on the icon, then go to properties, then go to comparability, then un-check the Disable desktop composition, that will turn off Areo, but since I run it on Steam, I made a new desktop and when I went to properties, the compatibly tab is gone. I know I'm asking much of you but please, if you can, please help me.

Possibly turn off world reflection and refractions for graphics, under advanced if I recall correctly. It is probably when you are in a level with water some where that you get the lag because of these effects.

If you have steam, do a file verification check (by right clicking the game I think). Did you by any chance started playing the game, then it updated and then you continued playing after some time? That's because old save games are not compatible with the latest Amnesia update of April 2011 (v1.2) and so this might cause issues.
