Ice Station Santa has been very choppy on my laptop. It was going pretty well and then the whole game started getting choppy - music & animations. It was so bad at one point that I finally got to save my game (which saved) and then quit and everything froze. If I stop and restart the game, it goes well for a while, then gets choppy and stuttery again.
I have a HP Pavilion ZD8000 laptop - Windows XP Home, Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 128MB Radeon Mobility X600 video card.
I turned down the hardware acceleration a couple of notches but that didn't help. Should I try turning it down more?
Edit: I know it's a holiday weekend, so I know it'll be a bit before I get any suggestions from the tech gurus (aka Will and Seg). :)
Edit 2: I noticed that the game will be going along fine and it's when I change locations that the choppiness starts. I have no idea if that's indicative of anything but thought I'd mention it.
