Re: 'HL2: Episode 1' Feedback Thread
Magus... Source is very memory intensive and for some reason it continue to load/unload things from memory and it uses the disk very often. Most of the stuttering problems can be traced to this.
People with less than 1Gb of RAM are more likely to experience hiccups but even with a decent quantity of RAM some PCs are still bound to suffer from the occasional stuttering; some more than other.
The roots of this problem are probably so deep in their code that I don't think there will ever be a complete solution, although it would less noticeable as people move to computers and with more memory.
