What is up with the performance of XWA??? I have played through the seven prologue missions and the first Rebel mission with smooth framerates. This is in 1152x864 mode and with the video options cranked (excluding starfield density, space debris, which are set at low and off, respectively. However, in the 2nd Rebel mission, I feel like I am watching a slideshow.
I have tried using the lowest
possible video settings with everything
turned off in 640x480 mode, but this only results in a minor framerate improvement; I still feel like I am watching a slide show.
BTW, did I mention that I am using a 733MHz Pentium with 320 MB of RAM and a Geforce 3
Should I expect such p*ss poor frame rates with my rig? Come on, you've got to be kidding me! I am on the verge of tossing the game in the trash even though I loved my initial 8 mission experience. Does anybody have some performance tuning suggestions? I'm desperate!
I forgot to mention that I have tried using different video card drivers, but have not seen any noticeable improvements.
Thanks in advance
