hi there, ive just built my new computer, installed Quake 4 expecting something amazing to happen. but when it FINALLY laoded up and i got to play, it was sooooooooo slow, so bad i cant even play.

my computer is an AMD athlon 64 2.4, 1GB DDR2 ram, asus Geforce 7600gs silent 512mb.

surely this should run properly, even on full setings?

please help me here, has my time and money all been in vain?

many thanks bob

So when you have a new computer it means you also have a fresh windows installed

Try to update your drivers for you graphic card, don't forget to look for Quake updates

Full settings on quake 4 when it was released no card could even play, you needed the best SLI rig to run it, 7600 is more of a medium with a couple of things on high card, and it can take a while to load levels, try turning down the res if its especially high or lowre some settings, you wont manage any AA.

Yes, you are right there :whistling:

But I think (not sure) that the highest settings only start when you start to play
so not when you boot the game. But i can be wrong offcourse.

@ fortuitous:

i would try to change the settings to the lowest as possible:

so graphics low, shadow low , etc : resolution 800 * 600
When you boot the game and it loads alot faster, you can change it untill it goes perfect.

I'm not a professional, i try to help :blink:
