As a suggestion I would change the Nebula style and Space Background style in the Options menu - set Nebula to Simple and background to Grayscale/simple. That should help out with the stuttering, there are also a few other options in the settings menu that will improve performance a bit - anything in green text should help performance.
Try those out and see if it helps, the good thing is that GFX quality in this game isn't hugely impacted by lowering the settings.
Thanks for your suggestions. I tried turning down everything and checking all green options to improve performance but it didn't change. This somehow isn't about actual performance per se, but about a very odd sort of video-lag that actually doesn't really seem to have anything to do with the game itself. It's just that this stuttering only happens on this computer WHILE playing certain games.
It's very unfair to blame the game for this, which is why i want to re-assure you that this computer i'm using right now is quite crappy and something's clearly not right with it. I'm just curious to see if someone actually can help me deal with this until i get the money to get something more fresh.
Have you patched to the latest version, if that stuttering happens only in the tutorial then that sounds like a bug that was fixed recently..?
But yes, you will have to crank down the graphic settings, your mobile gpu is 7 gpu generations behind.
Well, after i installed 184.108.40.206 and entered the license key, it said that there were two updates available on the updates button. So i went in there and one of the updates was a beta update to 220.127.116.11 or something, while another seemed to be the Zenith expansion itself. So, i downloaded Zenith onto this and again everything works fine except when actually inside and playing a game. The menu background and such floats on well as it should.
As i said above, only a few games seem to be affected by this. I play far more demanding games than AI War on this computer without stuttering.
Yes -- the latest beta version fixes this specific issue, which was an error with the first 3 tutorials only, and nothing else. Sorry for the confusion!
Oh, so in this case you think you guys could fix this via the software? Well i'll get the beta update down right away then and see what turns out!
