Extreme Lag with JA - Need help...


Recommended Posts

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 Nvidia.com. So i know that is all up to date.

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
