View Full Version : Tractor Beam = blinking units etc, mission 11 empire problem

ok, when i activate the tractor beam, at first it kinda lags but it fixes itself.
on mission 11 (empires), when i use the tractor beam on leia, the thing lags like crazy, like everything runs but the fps must be 1 or 0.5. the units dissappear occaisionally but then reappear. the worst part of all, if leia has full health and is running away, i use the tractor beam, i see the tractor beam hitting leia, then it's like leia died or something! she's not on the screen or viewable! she's not blinking or anything, a friend said when you hit her with the tractor beam, the mission ends and you win but when i did it just continues and nothing different happens. i can continue to kill the enemy ships but that's it.
Don't say download new patches cuz i have them
it's not my computer cuz it's very good (not to brag but it is)
don't tell me to dumb down the graphics cuz i did, and dont tell me to change the resolution to the crappiest but i did (i tested 800x600 and 1024x some number)
the priority on my ctrl+alt+delete doesn't change anything
soooo any suggestions? o and my driver's fully updated and i'm not running any other programs

me = :blast5: :smash:
me = :rifle1: :firemad:
