Help with windows 8 (sorry if this is in the wrong topic)

Post by randomrolf on Tue Oct 07, 2014 6:43 pm

So im playing mxlu on Windows8.
The problem is: Lagg is destroying the whole experience Sad
Don't know what to do really.. When i do vidtest i choose something but then it "Auto" goes to 3dfx glide.
And im using DDRAW for window mode. Also least laggy.

Anyone have any tips? or had the same problems but fixed em?

This is super important for me. I have been a player of this mod for a long time.
And soon there will be NEW PATCH !! Very Happy
Must fix this lagg before that.. So please Smile

Launch the Vidtest via admin and set it to compatibility mode windows xp service pack 3.
To do so right click on the icon and then properties -> compatbility tab.

Well if you were in the states I would suggest buying a decent P4 based gaming rig for 50 bucks and puting blackbox xp on it.

hahahah

but yea, seriously, if you have d2 in program files, don't keep it there. actually don't keep anything there except programs (and maybe new games). windows don't really allow changing files in there without special permissions and some voodoo shit. new games know this so they usually store the saves/config in the user's documents, but old games don't know this so they keep the saves inside the game folder (or they try to, but fail because windows doesn't let them).

also, what aspirine said is sound advice.
