Choppy/lagging game/cutscenes

posted by Dimol on - last edited - Viewed by 2.3K users

At first, my game had that '*.exe stopped working' error, but I fixed this by making compatibility mode with Wi 98/ME, and it worked.

Now I have problem with game lagging - it's very uncomfortable, it destroys the fun of playing the game.
I've tried to turn off shadows, it helped, but only a bit. All my settings are on low. I've turned Windows Aero when I play game. I have no programs, that can interrupt game - Xfire, Antiviruses or something. I have bought game on Steam.
i5 2500K
Windows 7

Any ideas? :/

    Let's try if we can find a better way to fix the crash.
    Please disable compatibility mode and check if the game crash creates an entry in the
    event viewer in the "Windows Logs/Application" section.
    If so, right click the entry, select "copy the details as text", and paste them in a new reply.

  • I don't know what's point of that, but as you said:

    That looks like a common issue that happens when Steam is running in compatibility mode.

    Please check the properties of the Steam.exe, your Steam icons, and the games .exe files, and disable any compatibility mode settings.
    Sometimes compatibility mode is checked, but is grayed out. Then you have to click on "Change settings for all users" at the bottom to disable the checkbox.
    Afterwards try if the game works.

  • Now game works without any compatibility mode, but it want's me to start new game, thanks...

    That should be fixable. The game uses a different savegame folder location in win98 compatibility mode.

    You should find your saves at
    %PUBLIC%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead
    copy them to
    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead
    and you should have them back.

  • Man, you saved my ass, sorry for my ironic 'thank you', and now honest - THANK YOU. I will tell you what with my chopps/lags tomorrow, I can't play more today. I ask you to post somethinig under this post, so that you can see my response tomorrow, beacuse I don't know if there are enabled posting under self posts.

    You're welcome. It should help with the lags. At least it did for other users.

  • Game is working good as hell, there's no lags on max graphics settings. Thank you again ;) .
