Choppy movements and heavy lagging.
Last Updated 4 years ago

Q: I started the game and for some reason my movement in-game is extremely choppy, with heavy lagging between my pushing a key and my actual movement.

A: It is connected to the sound settings (bad sound drivers for vista are making the whole sluttering) You need the 1.3 patch and/or to update your sound drivers.

To find out what sound device you have, please run the DXDiag
