Symptoms: - SLOW movement of units - Stuttering/lots of frame drops during unit movement - Stuttering/frame drops during city zoom - Wonder videos play perfectly, but game-intro video stutters heavily System specs: Model: Gateway MT3705 Laptop Processor: Intel CoreDuo 1.6GHz X2 RAM: 1.5GB Graphics Processor: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M with 64MB on-board and up to 256MB including shared OS: Vista Home Premium Resolution: 1280 X 800 DirectX Version: DirectX 10 Game version: Warlords + latest patch Civ IV Graphics settings: As low as possible Swap file: 2280MB min/max Yeah, so everything works with no crashes, but everything is VERY slow. There are the slowdowns/frame drops described above, plus there's a delayed response when I click on anything with my mouse. I thought my problem might be my RAM, but when I went from 1GB to 1.5GB nothing changed. I have another 500 on the way, but I don't expect it to make much of a difference. Any tips to speed things up would be great. I searched through this forum looking for a unified tip source, but most of the advice seems to concern specific glitches or crashes. This is a little more general. Thank you VERY MUCH in advance.
