View Full Version : Explosions cause system to "stagger"

I find that when I have a very large explosion in a game, e.g. using the Mistral, then the system seems to "stagger" for a few seconds, just showing a series of still images. Then the game picks up again OK. However, it is disconcerting.

Has anybody else found this problem ? If so, what is the fix ?

All the best.

It is probably your CPU,video card or RAM.... post your DX Diag in the community help forum.

Good advice, Bear http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I would suggest a quick fix until the real problem is addressed- lower your graphical settings and/or resolution, or reduce your audio quality

I get a slight pause when this happens too...usually requires a squadron worth of B-17's dropping bombs or a small group of He-111's dropping those 1000KG bombs but it does happen to me and I assume it to be fairly normal considering the stressload on the system.
