Episode 2 need some fixing

posted by TheChosen on - last edited - Viewed by 223 users

Just spend couple of hours with it and I definitely like it! However, there's couple of problems plaguing it.

1. The cutscenes voices-track stutters. Sometimes it plays smooth for about 5 seconds, then it goes back to stuttering. This was a problem with the previous game, but I watched the cutscenes from Youtube. And now with subtitles I can at least know what they're talking about. Still, irritating.

2. After playing for a quite while, game started freezing and stutter outside of cutscenes. Namely at the restaurant scene and from there on. It finally gave up at the brothel, after I switched the lamps, and the game crashed. When checking it out from the Task Manager, I found out that the game was eating my RAM like fat kid eating a pack of cheetos! About 1,6 GB much! I know the recommended requirement is 3GB (I got 2GB, which is minimum. Rest of the stuff is around the recommended.), but come on! I think the game could use some optimization or something.

    2 Tips:
    [LIST=1]
    [*]Upgrade your RAM. RAM sticks are dirt cheap these days. We're talking £50 for a pair of 4GB sticks (so 8GB total) on dabs.com. Don't know what your local dealer would charge you, though.
    [*]using that spoiler tag substitute still allows people who don't want to read it to actually read it by accident. Use this instead: <spoiler>message</spoiler> But use square brackets (BBCode) rather than angle brackets (HTML, for display purposes only).

    I have 4GB of RAM and can run a web browser in the background without any of the problems you're experiencing. The graphics card is a GeForce GT220 with 512MB GDDR3 (a low-end one from about 3 years ago).

  • I played the game smoothly, so still think its something with your computer. Tried on another one?

  • I have an issue also with episode 2. Mouse cursor stutters everywhere there's an "object". For example in the main menu, cursor moves normally until I move it over Play Game or Options where there's 1-2second lag before it goes on top of the links. And when moving it on top of Quit, it takes the 1-2 seconds, and then again when clicking it, it can take over 5 seconds before anything happens.

    Cannot play this before it's fixed :( No issues with episode 1. I have windows 7 32bit, 4GB memory, quad core amd cpu and Radeon HD5770.

    No issues with resource usage, mem / cpu's are fine.
