TE on Windows 7 : graphic not smooth with S3 Mirage chipset

Postby milos » 01 Mar 2010, 22:04

Hi.

I have had a full version of 2009 since it's release, and i use it on my laptop, with an integrated graphics S3 Mirage with 384MB of Graphic RAM. I had to change the T&L processing to "software" and the game has been working nicely all this time. However things got pretty bad since I upgraded my system to Windows 7. The game graphics got slower and the overall graphic is not that good, it's not as "smooth" as it used to be on windows xp. I have installed the latest driver from manufacture's site, and still nothing gets any better. it seems to be slightly better if i turn off the Aero theme, but even then it is not as good as it was on windows xp.

my question is: is there anything I can change in the game system in oredr to have it run as smoothly as it used to on windows xp? running it in "compatibility mode" didn't help either...

any help greatly appreciated...

Hello,

did you already try to set "Shadows" to "Circle" & "Player Details" to "Normal" ?

Else, maybe you can try to play in Full Screen with a lower resolution, 640x480 16 bits for example.
