    Lag at first program run

    Hi guys,

    I'm sorry if this problem was already posted but I couldn't find a similar thread in the forum.
    After formatting my pc I'm having some troubles running Wolfenstein ET. I downloaded the latest version from Splashdamage website and installed it.

    However, as I try to start the game it is very glitchy with a lot of mouse lag. Frame and music in the first "create your profile" screen has a very low refresh rate (1-2 seconds each frame). Easy to understand that in this way it results totally unusable. Even if I create my profile (very painful job, though) main game screen shows the same problems.

    Any clue how can I solve this?

    Some info for you: Win10 - Run as Administrator set on the main .exe and on the desktop shortcut - Already uninstalled/reinstalled several times also after re-downloading the installer. Tried to install ETLegacy and works pretty smooth.


    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Giorgio

    If ETLegacy is working smoothly why bother with the old installer?

    Re: Lag at first program run

    Most common, the most efficient solution to that issue is bring up console entering "\r_primitives 2" (w/o qmarks). Hit ENTER once done.

    To give you an idea. ET long been creating issue mixups on any hardware combos. For some weird occurrences, mentioned console command does disable number of "internal" settings giving the game the required smoothness for you to be able to play smooth. At some different point, it is throttling the CPU cause it utilizes just one of many supported cores and makes FPS drastically go down.

    Every issue I had, that instantly resolved it. Might be yer lucky day, "console up" and try <.<

    Re: Lag at first program run

    Hi guys, thanks for the fast response.

    @N3rwitZ ... unfortunately the r_primitives 2 didn't solve the problem... any other hint?

    @Mustang you're probably right, but I have a "VM_create on ui failed" problem when try to access many servers that never happened on the old release


    Do you have any other option I can modify? Here my etconfig file... found some "unsafe" voices..

    Re: Lag at first program run

    Already out of idea. Thought about a second, did you remove current GFX drivers then, well, install previous revision over instead? For my AMD unit, it solved all the hassle in the brink of an eye, when it was required I re-install the game using an uninstaller software

    Optional step give \seta com_maxfps 125 \seta com_hunkmegs 256 (either 512) a test. edit2: Yeah seen your hunkmegs set at 56, too low for game to load things into memory. With regard to [VM_create on ui failed], one easy 2 fix, do as Dragonji explain.

    Re: Lag at first program run

    56 is enough to load the game and run ui tho.
    Could it be that your laptop also has dedicated video card installed? If so you could try launching the game using the dedicated video card rather than running it on the intel hd.
