Solved: 4 Years, 3 Months, 1 Week ago [solved ]framerates slow down

Hello,

The game works fine but at the beginning, I enter a room like office or storage and when I exit the room the framerate slowdown considerably like 3 or 5 FPS... Before I enter office or storage, the same room (the big one with map at the entrance and dogs) works normally...

Some help please ?

I have a 7950 gx2, drivers up to date.

Suggestions:

- turn of posteffecfts
- turn of shadows
- turn down resolution
- choose a lower shader model (not lowest though)
- lower texture resolution.

I am afraid there is no "silver bullet" for bad framerates, it depends on alot on your hardware configuration.

With a Geforce 7950 GX2, AMD64 Dual core 4200+ , in 1280x760 ??

It's really a soft problem.

The game runs very fast all the time until I exit office or storage room.
The first time I enter the big room with the map and the dogs, the game runs fast. After I enter the storage or office room and come back in the big room, I have 3,4 fps until I enter storage or office room again.

Even with all effect down, in 800x600, the game, only in the big room THE SECOND TIME (not the first), has 3 or 4 FPS...

Does this always happen? Could be that something odd has happened and the game is stuck in that moment causing the lag, try replaying from the start or from a save from before you entered the big room the first time.

Make sure you have any un-needed applications not running. That can both the computer sometimes.

Please -REP me.
Honestly, please do. I want to see how low I can go!!
Ignore that error message too. Just ignore it and keep going to give me -rep.

This is strange, I am afradi I ahve no idea what might be happening, will have to think about it.

Meanwhile, try WindexGlow's suggestion and see if you got some app running that might be interfering.

Ok problem solved. Drivers issue, apparently. I reinstalled it and It works normally.

By the way, this is a brillant game.
I can't believe that noone had the idea to make a adventure game in subjective view based on physics until now...
