Windows 7: Emperor: Battle for Dune Multi unit Lag

27 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64

Well what you didn't say is whether the game works on XP on the same machine that you have Windows 7 installed on, or if those machines you used XP had the same problem with a Windows 7 install. And yes you were kind of biting my head off there, just take it easy friend.

You're the first person I've heard of to have this problem. E:BfD is a pretty small community of players but a good number of them have probably upgraded to Win7, and probably many of them use machines with nvidia. Let's go through it logically:
1. Are your drivers up to date?
2. If you have updated, have you tried rolling back the drivers to reproduce the error?
3. Have you tried using drivers for older OS's? They usually don't say so explicitly, but Windows 7 is compatible with older drivers back to XP.
4. Have you tried an alternative driver manufacturer? Zeropoint makes drivers for nvidia and ati: - Fast n Furious
I assumed you did all of steps 1-4 already since you were convinced the problem was nvidia's interaction with the OS. Once you have done that, the next step in diagnosis is to try a dual OS setup, or duplicate machines to see if you can reproduce the problem.

These older games aren't supported, so it's no surprise if the latest and greatest drivers have trouble.

I have the same problem with Windows 7 - lags on multiple units selection. I turned off TARGET LINES in GAME OPTIONS and everything works flawless :) Hope it helps you.
