While running with an Athlon 1600+, 512 ram, and Geforce3 Ti500 the system locks up and unlocks during play. AA is off, acceleration turned down some, and enable combine writing is off. This helped a little but not enough. Is the graphics card (64mb) not adequate? Great game, but this is frustrating. Any help is appreciated.

Are you overclocking your card? if so back off the core 5 or 10 mhz and try again.

The other thing is it could be excessive hard drive activity..if the pauses are not too long..try cleaning up your hard drive and de-fragging.

A 64 meg card will mean keeping the texture quality low.

Thanks for the advice MonkeyMonster. I'm not good enough to be overclocking yet, but will definitely try to clean up the hard drive (if I know what I'm doing) and defrag.

Thanks!
