Hi dudes

i bought this game near the end of Feb 2003 and at the time i had a GeForce 2 mx 100/200 and the game ran slow as expected, a week ago i bought a GeForce 4 mx 440 and i played the game expecting performance improvements but the game still runs slow

My specs are

Intel Pentium 4 1.6GHz
524 RAM
GeForce 4 mx 440
44.03 nvidia drivers (tried all previous versions and no improvement)
Direct X 9.0
Windows XP SP 1
Splinter Cell with 1.2 b patch (again no improvement)
48x CD-ROM Drive

My Dads specs are

Intel Pentium 4 2GHz
524 RAM
GeForce 2 MX 400
44.09 nvidia drivers
Direct X 9.0
Windows 98 SE
Splinter Cell no patches applied
48X CD-Rom Drive

the game on my dads machine runs as smooth as silk but my machine is a little better than his but my machine runs this game very slowly http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

thanks in advance

2 things: 1: get directx 9.0a. 2: defrag your hard drive.

Even on a GF4 this game won't run fast. The Xbox only runs it at 24 fps. Make sure your video settings in the game are set to the same as your Dad's.

My system:

AMD XP 2400+ @ 2.13 Ghz
1 gig of Corsair DDR PC2700 RAM @333Mhz
Radeon 9800 Pro video w/TV out core @434, mem @720
Windows XP SP 1
Microsoft Directx 9.0a
Antec TruePower TrueBlue True480 PSU
16x Antec DVD drive
24x10x40 Plexwriter CD-RW
1 Westerndigital 40 gig harddrive, master
1 Westerndigital 100 gig hdd, slave
XFX KT400 ALH Via mainboard, 4-in-1 4.48
