Extreme Lag with JA - Need help...
Hi all, I wanted to get back into JA and start playing again and right away I have a huge problem. I load into the game which takes around 8 minutes for the first load in for some reason and then the game is incredibly laggy on any graphical setting. Now I can assure you my PC can more than handle JA. Heres my specs:

I have tried reinstalling it, I have tried updating it, removing all addons and additional pk3's. I have tried running it in administration mode, running it in compatibility mode for XP. All have failed to solve the problem. Is this a Vista 64 bit issue? I am completely stumped anyone out there getting this crap as well?

I have also made sure I have the latest graphics drivers for my 8800 GTS at So i know that is all up to date.

I might be if your computer is pure 64 bit, but has 32 bit other hardware devices and you install 32 bit application, there might be some conflicts.
Try on older system, which is not 64 bit like your AMD duel core 64 bit.

I have the exact same problem with similar (high-end) specs. I am also running Vista and its reallcy confusing because games like Splinter Cell 3 and Rainbow Six Vegas run smoothly. And this relatively old game is giving me a fps of 9 to 18 ????? wtf

I do not have any winxp available and even if i did, i am not planning on reformatting my entire computer for this game... sad

Well how about buying old computer ( not too expensive ). That might work fine.

Ideally it would be nice to get it to work on a high end system.

I am also experiencing low frame rate issues on the 8800gts on win vista 64. If someone has a solution to getting it to play better I would appreciate it.
