Stutter/hangs in Vista 32 or 64?

This subject is mentioned elsewhere on these boards, but people looking for a stutter-fix might look in this thread for it. I discovered this fix when troubleshooting a troublesome mod, but has found it to have a positive effect in vanilla also.

I downloaded that explorer and looked at my EXE file, but it already had checked the >2GB memory. I run Vista64 and have the Steam client. I'm also using the Complete 2009 mod, and was noticing some pretty bad choppiness in Army Warehouses. I have 8GB RAM and a 512M graphics card. Previously I had been running in High graphics with full dynamic, but I cranked it down to Medium and that seems to have jacked up the framerate quite a bit in that area and still looks pretty decent.

I *always* get stutter in areas with a full stashbox. I had a bunch of junk in the box in the trailer at the northern exit from Garbage to the Bar and it caused ~5-10 second lags every time when I got near the flea market. I moved that stuff to the Bar, and it still lags by the flea market but not so much. Now it lags near the bridge into the Bar area where the dogs all run up and munch on you while you are lagged out and you are dead when it un-freezes. Heh.

So I shoot all the dogs every time and never make a run for it now. Surely somebody has a solution for the stash box lag problem?

Weird - the guy that posted after you has deleted his post. Anyway, use perma-corpses instead of stashes.

Hi ,

a word of caution , had one that exploded , ....

use a stash that has been found before , i always leave a single bandage in a stash so i know where they are with the minimap.

to speed up the system use a usb stick of 8 gig , that way you get at least 4 gig extra boost on the older systems.

what else can you do ?

click the properties of a disk under * computer * > hardware > select the drive and click * properties * > tab * policies *

select ' enable write caching on the disk ' you can also flag ' enabel advanced performance ' but this is only recommended if you have a powersupply (!!) this will speed up your system but back up all in case you ever have a powerfailure.

you can also tweak the reg a bit but email for that with soft and hardware details.

close all programs you dont need whileplaying like the internet , mail , messenger , etc , ....

play in full screen instead of a window helps also

just some tips that i used this week for some older comps under vista and 7 to play better.

have a nice day

Yes - each corpse actually has a weight limit defined in the ltx files. If you go past that weight limit, you will find that the items end up exploding everywhere. I've had that happen to me on two occasions, and I posted a thread each time with some lovely pictures and videos of the event. It is an awesome sight...but it will bring your PC to its knees.

One of the threads is here:
