Whenever I play a level, it always lags and stutters a lot. I'm running an Athlon XP 1800+, 256DDR and Geforce4 64MB. Even with the graphics set down low, it still stutters. My only theory for this was my on-board sound system, because it stutters when playing certain sounds, and is constantly jumpy when flying a plane. anyone else experience this?

Are you playing online when this is happening?

sorry single player, with not many bots, cpu time given to bots is low, no progs running in the background.

Hiya Tango,

Try this BF Tweak guide. Could be lots of reason why your SP game stuttered.

creative pci 128 stuttered in the app even though it used to work.
swapping with a sblive solved the probelm.
