Alright...this game runs smooth and great on my comp besides random slow downs that I get in the game. These slow downs are a pain in the a$$, I go from about 60 fps to about 15 and it stays that way for a bout 30 seconds no matter where I am on the map then clears up, this will happen about every 5-10 minutes. I had been screwing with my comp and thought I might of messed a setting up so I thought reformatting would clear up the problem...but NOPE! I still get the slow downs...I'm running on a clean windows install with only this game on the HDD. I recently bought RAM so now I've got 768 megs and that really made the game run better, but now I'm noticing this slow down problem. The HDD light does NOT come on when it is running bad so I assume its not a virtual memory problem. I have tried all different video drivers and still the same problem. I also tried moving around setting and such (sound, video, and etc) but still got the problem...I have no idea what to do now, I figured reformatting would solve it. Anyone got an idea? It would be GREATLY appriciated!
