I usually am not one to b!tch about games, because I'm not smart enough to program them.
I am, however, geting really irritated with the in-screen video "feeds" causing the game to hang - to hang - to hang - to hang - to hang - you get my drift - my drift - my drift - my drift - my drift - my drift - okay?
My system isn't the best, but it doesn't exactly suck, either.

I've read thru all of the threads. Seems like others have the same issue. Patched to v. 1.06 didn't help. Tweaking the XML didn't help. Turning off EAX didn't help. Turning off the in-game sound didn't help. Disabling the SB card and using the on-bard chipset solution made it even worse.
It's not a bad game... when it's running - it's running - it's running - it's running - it's running.
Moddy, if this needs to go into another thread, please feel free to stick it there.
