    Default old game...... still slow?

    please help. i know its an old game now, but i bought battlefeild 1942. the game is great, but it runs amazingly.......slow and ****. considering that the bf2 demo runs faster than it, there must be something wrong.

    pentium 4 northwood 2 ghz
    ECS fx-a 648
    128mb geforce fx5500 overclocked slightly
    generic 2 x 512mb pc3200 ram
    dodgy pata 160gb drive

    all my other games run as well as can be expected, like nfsu2, max payne 1 and 2, halo-(choppy)
    im playing the single player so far.

    Are you playing it online or offline? and have u tryed messing with the settings in the game itself, when i got BF2 i had to turn the graphics down a notch to get mine to run right.

    well BF 1942 is hardly as demanding as BF2, have you installed all the latest updates?

    Also (and slightly off topic) have a look for the "Forgotten Hope" mod and add on maps, if you like BF 1942 then the Forgotten Hope mod will blow you away.

    update: it playes fine on my new athlon rig, so its okay. i think the cpu time given to AI must have been a majior factor. thx for mods tip - il get it certainly. the game is almost as good as bf2!
