Not sure why this is slow.

Post by i11uminati » 04 Mar 2007, 00:14

I followed the instructions to play the game in full screen by making a shortcut with the target:

"C:\Program Files\Warzone 2100\warzone2100.exe" --mod grim.wz --fullscreen --viewport 1280x1024

I toggled shadows off (alt+s) and the game is still a slideshow.

Is openGL is going to software fallback mode?

My specs are as follows:
XP professional SP1 (just reinstalled windows)
gig RAM
2.8 GHz P4
Radeon 9700 128 meg

Any suggestions?

Hmmm... Does SP2 really help? I wonder why...
What could be a cause is the Radeon card. WZ is known to run terribly bad on Radeon cards for a yet unknown reason. (Certainly not because of the high quality graphics.)

Not sure if this helps but it runs great on my windows PC and I have a Radeon 9600... its close to 9700 lol. BTW even if it doesn't help with WZ, there are very few reasons to not run SP2.
