leshpar posted a topic in Tech SupportHi. I was in the middle of an Avernum 4 runthrough when I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10. I did a fresh install of the OS too, not the upgrade as I've had issues with that before (and I had to boy windows 10 anyway since my win 7 was... *cough* not authentic). On windows 7 the game ran flawlessly. However, after I began using windows 10 Avernum 4 (and avernum 4 only, every other avernum game runs fine) runs so slow its as if I was trying to use a commodore 64 to play it. Its completely unplayable. things that should only take a couple of seconds now take 30 to 40 seconds. My computer has the following hardware: 3.9 GHZ AMD FX 6350 6 core processor (socket AM3+) 12 GB System Ram PC3 10660 DDR3 2 GB (GDDR5) video ram Geforce 760 GTX (PCI-E 16X) 500 GB Maxtor Hard drive SATA2 1 TB Seagate HDD SATA2 BDrom/DVDRW/CDRW combo drive Asus M5A97 Motherboard Thermaltake 700 Watt ATX power supply Logitech G110 keyboard Roccat Kone Pure mouse copy and pasted from another website, hense the odd formatting. Any help would be appreciated, I'd love to finish A4 before starting A5.
I have run into a problem where I accidentally hit disable character editor in Avernum 3. The trouble shoot says to delete the avernum3.dat file in the Data folder where the game is installed. Thats fine and good except my game for some reason only has the following files listed in the data folder: ###.bmp (many), Outdoor.dat, OutFight.dat, Town.dat. but no avernum3.dat. i have searched the entire computer for the avernum3.dat file and found nothing. Am i missing something? Is this a problem with just my computer? My Computer is Running Windows 10. But it originally had Windows 8. i had also migrated over files from an older computer that ran windows xp years ago. I do not know if any of that affects my situation.
Microsoft is getting rid of the WinHelp format slowly but surely... They want people to switch from WinHelp (.hlp) to Compiled HTML (.chm) format. But they won't supply a simple conversion program to turn an hlp into a chm. So for the time being, anyone with a Windows 10 platform won't be able to use the supplied WinHelp, .hlp, help files. If you could decompile the hlp project you could then convert it to a chm project. But they don't supply a program for that either. With an offline help file you can add your own corrections, clarifications and updates.
I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and am in the middle of an Avernum 4 playthrough. I have 2 computers, my laptop and desktop. Both are relatively high end and can play pretty much any AAA game out there. With windows 7 I was having a bit of lag whenever I'd hold Tab down (to show names and stuff), but otherwise the game played smoothly and rather fast. Upon upgrading to windows 10 it runs so slowly that it feels like I'm trying to play the game on a 486 or something (and honestly it might run better on that processor). Its so slow that it takes about 10 seconds from the time I press esc till the menu pops up. Everything works, but its so slow that it has become unplayable. Combat takes about 5 to 7 times longer than it should, as well as moving around, or even trying to save the game. The mouse cursor also suffers from severe cursor lag. This is happening on both of my computers, hense why I think this is related to windows 10. If anyone has a fix please let me know. My desktop stats are as follows: 3.9 GHZ AMD FX 6350 6 core processor 12 GB of system ram PC3 10660 2 GB GDDR5 Geforce 760 GTX My laptop stats are as follows: 2.0 GHZ Intel core i7 dual core 8 GB of system ram PC3 12800 2 GB GDDR3 Geforce 840M I really want to finish playing the Avernum games. Please fix the slowdown issues Spiderweb! This is for Avernum 4 version 1.0.1 from GoG.com.
