Unhappy heeelllpp pleaseee! my halo doesn't like me

I recently installed halo, however it is playing at an extremely slow speed...
and this is not because of the frame rate.
I get a good frame rate (A really really good frame rate ) but for some reason or another, the gamplay is quite sluggish.

Has anyone here had this problem and fixed it? if so, how?

Do you mean you get good fps but in the game time "passes slowly" like in slow motion?
What Windows and video drivers are you using?

Halo = crappy console port that was designed to run at 30 fps on the Xbox. What you can do about it = absolutely nothing. The game runs like crap for most people. Feeling like you're running through molasses at times it just how the game is.

And I'd like to know how you're getting a "really good frame rate" on your particular video card. A GeForce FX 5700 Ultra can barely run the game over 30 frames per second at 1024x768 on a 2.2 GHz Athlon.

SH64 and Serial_Killer:

You're about to be kicked right the heck out of here...

What can save you? Edit your posts.


... BTW, with Fixed Integer, a GF2ti/GF4MX CAN get pretty good framerates... I've seen it myself on a kt133a (SDRAM)/XP1700 @ stock speeds/GF2ti system I built...

I'll give you guys 10 minutes after 10:20am EST to edit your posts. We DO NOT act that way here. Failure to do so will result in:

1. Your posts being edited
2. Your ID's being put on the POOP list

... got it?
