Windows 7: Wolfenstein 2009

Wolfenstein 2009

Hi
I just built my first computer. I had a 3 yr old Dell that crapped out, so I went with a budget build. It's nice to know I can now upgrade. The MB is a gigabyte 785g, so it has the radeon HD 4200 video card built in. I have Wolfenstein 2009 and it plays choppy. Is there anything I can do for the time being as far as settings to help? I plan on purchasing a video card after X-mas.

Thanks and GREAT site.

Hello.

With your specs, the game should play awesome for you. It does for me.

Make sure you have the latest video and chipset drivers installed. Visit ATI's site and Gigabyte's. If you need further help, type system information in the start menu search box. Hit enter. On the screen that pops up, ctrl+s.

Rar or zip the saved file and attach to a post using the paperclip.

Go to the start menu and type services.msc, hit enter.

Disable AMD External Events Utility
Disable Offline files (unless you actually know what it is AND use it)
Disable Windows Search service (everyone in the "know" does this)

The Lavasoft Ad-Aware might be contributing to poor game performance so you could uninstall that as a test. Especially because you're also running Microsoft Antimalware Service. Running both is not good. In this case, also disable Windows Defender service. (You only should use one.)

Like I said though, visit ATI's site and download the latest driver for the video card. You're running an older version 8.641 when latest is 8.671 - use the device manager to install if you need to, to make sure all driver files are updated.

Hey Torrent
That seemed to help, Thanks. It still seems a little choppy, but that could be the game I guess.

Thanks again Ed

On board graphics just dont cut it for alot of the latest games. When I made my current PC I used on board for 1 week until I could afford my current card. It couldn't even run Half Life 2 on low.

Having said that I don't know what the on board radeon chipset is like performance wise.

+1 on what he said.

Try to disable anything running in the background that you won't need while playing... ie: msn messengers, Adobe startup program, MS Office Startup Program, etc, etc. All this things use memory that may be available for gaming a bit better.

Also, how you update your drivers is very important... DO NOT install newer drivers over the old ones... corruption and/or other issues may result from it. You must first uninstall your old drivers (video & sound and/or video/sound/Monitor if you have a 64 bit OS), use a sweeper to get rid of any registry instances, re start and install newer drivers with elevated Admin Rights (right click on .exe file and "Run as Administrator")

No, -1 one on what he said.

The integrated 4200 easily can get 6.5+ on WEI ratings and that is by far enough to play Wolfenstein very well at 1680x1050 or even higher on full settings. Wolfenstein is not too graphic intense on video cards.

Then there you have it... I stand corrected.
