1) Updated to the latest patch
2) Updated my video driver
3) Turned all the graphics/resolutions on the game to low
4) Upped my AGP aperture whozit on the bios to 256k
What the hell else is there that I can do? I have a 3.0 gig processor, which should be enough for the job and 512 megs of ram. I've got a NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 which I'll be the first to admit I know fuck nothing about, but this guy seems to be sporting a woody over it so I assume it's at least tolerable. I wasn't able to wring any more comprehension from it than that since he might as well have been speaking in tongues.
So come on people. Tell me what the hell is wrong with my computer. What the hell should I be running that I'm not running so that this game is shitting all over me.
