  • HalfLife 2

    Just bought it.

    There is an annoying stutter that happens during play. I have set most of the settings to low and run at 800x600.

    Current machine
    1gig ram
    ATI 9800pro 128
    Latest Omega Drivers
    Athlon XP 3200+ (or close to that)
    Soundblaster Live! something.

    I would just chalk it up to being a intensive game but BF2 Is much smother with medium to high settings.

    Any ideas?

    It studderes when you enter a new area, because it auto saves the game and loads up the new level.

      This is pretty much all the time. About every 20 seconds it does it.

        Now im stumped. Does it only studder before fights or encounters, or just about every 20 seconds, even if you are in a "simple" area? I have it and it doesn't studder at all, but I have a X300 Radeon card. Everything else is the same, 1gig of RAM, Audigy 2 soundcard, Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0 ghz. Mabey not the same, but not opposite ends of the universe. Heat shouldn't be an issue, unless this is a laptop, but it looks like a desktop. But BF2 runs on medium to high settings without that much studdering? Mine I have set on 1064x786 or something, and low to medium settings and it runs fine.

            Yea, updated everything after the install.

            Hmm.... I wonder if it is a sound issue. I didn't touch those settings.

              Possibly a sound issue, but it could be an issue with your video card. I have a system close to yours, 1 gig ram P4 3.0C 9800XT, and I run at 1024x768 on med to high settings or 1280x1024 on med with a few higher settings and I have no stuttering at all. I would check your AA and your Ansi with your vid card they can't be set that high or it will induce stuttering and slowness.

                I fixed it. Took the sound to low settings and the stutter is very rare now. (Probably to to some autosave or something.) Was able to take all my video setting back up to high and 1024x768.

                Thanks for the help.

                    It did that to me as well, but I just installed the ATI drivers for my card. The Omega drivers really made me stutter.

                      This issue resurfaced after a late-November "patch," and is being discussed pretty extensively on the forums at steampowered.com.

                      Glad you got it working, though. Hopefully they'll get it fixed to where you can crank the sound settings back up.

                          This can also be due to PCI latency. What sound card are you using? Onboard or seperate card?

                            Usually a sound issue. Though I had a similar issue that was actually tied to my ram running in dual channel mode (and the fact that it apparently didn't like to be). Switching out to SC fixed it.

                              i have my pci latency on my sound card set at 32 already

                              my specs are:

                              amd64 4000+
                              2 gig ocz platinum dual channel kit
                              xfx 7800 gt special edition
                              creative x-fi fatality edition

                              it doesnt happen in lost coast, only half life 2 single player, ive updated my graphics drivers to even the latest betas and all my sound card drivers are upto date, it appears to be a sound loading issue but it doesnt make sence why it doesnt also do it in lost coast?

                              thanks in advance
