Re: game is running slowly
if you are experiencing this problem with other games, then it's probably not Transcendence related.
In any case, did you try some command line switches to see if the game works faster ?http://wiki.neurohack.com/transcendence ... e_switches
I don't know your level of IT knowledge, so some of these may sound silly:
- Did you reinstall your graphics card drivers ? Most games will run very slowly if you don't do it, even if Windows XP seems to run ok.
- Check for viruses, do a whole system scan with a free antivirus, personally I like AVG free edition.
- Check for malwares: download the freeware Malwarebytes antimalware or spybot search and destroy (or both!) and run a full scan with them.
- open the windows task manager and check if you have a process that is going crazy, eating away RAM and/or CPU cycles. could even be a windows process, it happens sometimes. If so, mark down the name of the file/process and google it to search for solutions.
If you just reinstalledwindows XP on a laptop from a laptop vendor CD, be aware that those CDs usually installs tons of "bloatware", running in background on your laptop and eating resources for nothing.
