PC - Lag issues

9 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

 

As you maybe aware, I am a huge Lego fan. I really loved Lego Racers 2. I have the game on PC. Unfortunately I have been experiencing serious lag issues during the racers.

 

Computer Information:

  • Windows 7
  • GeForce GTX 660 series graphics card (couldn't find drivers for XP on Windows XP Mode).
  • 2 monitors (maybe an issue, not sure)

Here are some of the things I have tried:

  • Windows XP Mode. I Installed game on this but could not get it to work. 
  • Compatibility Settings. I have tried many different compatibility settings.
  • Graphics, screen resolutions, etc. This did not work.

Problem:

The intro video does not play at all. The main menu works fine as well as the builder of character and car. As soon as I start either Adventure (the game) or Bonus game or stuff like that, it goes laggy. This makes the game unplayable.

 

What would you recommend I do? Do you know any solutions to the problem?

 

Many thanks, Bradley.

So my command would be /windowed, where do I type these commands in? I have found what I need but don't know where it goes.

Create a shortcut to the EXE and add a parameter to the end of the path after the end quote.

For example:

 

"C:Program Files (x86)LEGO MediaLEGO Racers 2lego racers 2.exe" /windowed

Thanks for your help. It did decrease the lag quite a bit, but for me the game don't run smoothly. I have a PS2 with all cables, was thinking about ordering the PS2 copy off Amazon.

Everytime I try, I get the following error:

"NVIDIA Installer cannot continue"

"This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware."

Eh, it probably hates virtual machines...

I'm confused. He's running it inside a VM? If that's the case, then only the VM's drivers would work.
