I was trying to make JA run better on my computer (1.1 ghz, ATI Radeon 8500LE 128 meg) and I stumbled upon two thngs....

One: defrag your hard drive! It may not give you a 20 fps boost, but things like loading go a little faster (there is a small speed boost in the game.)

Two: set you screen resoultion higher than what you think. It seems backwards and illogical :eyeraise:, but eariler Radeons ( not sure about the 9000's and above) preformed better at higher resolutions (I think pc.ign.com might have a review stating this). The highest fps I would get with shaders off was only about 15-20 fps @ 800X600 :mad:. I bumped it up to 1280X1024, volia, I was averaging 45-60 fps with shaders on! :yoda: This might help some that are having issues (ram might also be an issue, I have 512 megs).

Hope this helps anyone, good luck! :cheers:
