the game is fairly jittery on singleplayer of all things.

my system=

windows xp

Athlon xp thoroubred 2.2

Leadtek GF4 ti4400 (.52 drivers) - Quincunx and x2 anis enabled.

SOYO KT333 Ultra

SOUND= (im using the onboard CMI 8738 audio chip, ive also tried with my Live 5.1)

512mb 2100 DDR

Seagate 40gb HD

Logitech Dual Optical mouse

now thats a good spec in my opinion. dont know why the game should be laggy

any ideas fellow gamers ?

Pretty sure its the AI consuming CPU time, try setting nbr of bots lower and the CPU time given to AI lower, should help improve your framerate.
I dont play SP, AI is to buggy, so i cant tell ya what to set these at.

Turning down the sound detail might help it some. It did for me.

Actually i have noticed a big difference between win98 and XP - I have both installed on my rig and while 98 works smooth XP stutters like hell SP and MP.
My brothers P4 1.7G with XP does the same.

I have AthlonXP:p 1.4Ghz and GF4 4200Ti 128M and 256DDR:p
My brother has P4 1.7Ghz and GF2 Mx 64M and 256DDR:(

it looks like thrashing or swaping or whatever u call it when it doesn't stop reading. and it alsodoes that an low res low detail...

PS - both versions do that

Hopefully there will be a patch for it soon that fixes all the bugs, they better hurry up with it because its still one hell of game. Too good to be ruined by some stupid bugs
