  1. Bought the game, been miserable ever since... I can't seem to crawl above 25fps at the best of times (ie in the middle of nowhere with no one watching me.) I average 17. During combat this falls to 5 & stutters like crazy.My spec (listed below should be better than this - have seen posts on this board of people getting 40+ (many with the same spec getting 50-60) on alot lower - I can run Battelfield 2 & CoD2 with out a glitch at top settings at this resolution, all the eye candy on - what's wrong here? Am running the game at 1048x768x32 @75, latest (81.84) Nvidia drivers, system upto date, all patches etc, regularly defragged (before and after installation), 2mbps broadband connection. Have tried every convieable combination of settings (both on my card and on the game (never much difference, even when I step down to lowest settings on 800x600). No -I don't overclock and never have). Have read all the user suggested tweaks (NT4 comp, XP tweak guide, PCI latency change (doesn't affect PCI express based cards by the way for those rushing off to try it). I've installed/re-installed the game and still no luck. I have to say I'm pretty dissapointed with the level of support for the game -no FAQ's re:technical support on the main site, no obvious 'offical' ones in the forums etc. I've had the game for almost a week now, and it's been unplayable - all the time wasted has been mine - yet I doubt anyones about to offer me that time back off my subscription when it comes up (and if I decide to renew it. I can see from many of the other posts I'm not the only one with this problem, and many of the players online who've tried to help me have complained about the number of people being lost to the game when their subs run out because of their inability to play it in any meanful way. Please help me - I'd really like to play the game as it's meant to be played.
