Geneforge slow on Windows 8

Recommended Posts

I just recently bought my new Windows 8 laptop. Then a couple of days later installed the Geneforge series. And now i'm realizing how slow it is :-P. The character and enemies lag a lot on the screen and it takes a long time for the engine to process the next round. Is there anyway to make this game go faster on my Windows 8 laptop.

If it's a low-end laptop you might want to disable some services. Barring that, make sure all your drivers are up to date -- even if it's a new laptop, manufacturers usually ship products with outdated drivers.

I was thinking more my computer is too advanced for the old Geneforge's. My Windows 7 is more low-ended than the windows 8, and it works a hecka lot more efficient than my new laptop :confused:

Try to start the game on incompatibility mode, XP or w7, also disable the extra effects, i don´t know if that option still exist on windows 8 , but start whit the g5 , that always did help me whit w7

 

Good luck .

Huh? I also have Windows 8, but it works fine. I didn't do anything at all. Try setting up the compatibility mode in the shortcut or something to Windows XP.

You've probably seen the topic pinned to the tech forum, but if you haven't here it is.

 

If you're on a 64-bit machine, it could be a problem.

Yes. And if in any case that is the problem, here's a link to a fix. http://www.sevenforu...ility-mode.html (they even mentioned SpidWeb software there!)

Not wanting a double post, but I just found out there is a compatibility mode for Windows 7 in the properties of Geneforge 5 and other apps. Go try it out, if the problem isn't resolved yet.
