I don't understand this *****. I've been playing XWA for the past two years with no problems. grewat play. Now all of a sudden whenever I play the damn game for mare than 30mins its start to play slow like I have a slow machine or something. The only thing that have changed is that I brougt a new joystick with the UBS connections and force feedback to enhance my game play. For what i here these connections are suppose to faster and better response time with the game. It's great for a while and then the systems starts to move slow driving me crazy esp when I'm in close dogfightinmg HELP please. I need my game back to normal what gives

Yes, I tried that still doesn't help. Someone said if the 80% of the resources on the computer is not free then that'll cause the problem. "ll try to up the resources right now it's at 66% free. Damn I have to much junk on my computer. Time to jettison things so I cna play xwing normal again

Sounds like you're on the right track. If you didn't know this already, you can hit CNTL-ALT-DEL, once, and a menu should pop up on your desktop. This should reveal all the background applications that are currently running on your pc.
The only 2 that you'll need running is "systray" and "explorer." If you're running memory managers, anti-virus programs, etc., this will create game lag.
