Default Lag while facing enemies?

Hello
I'm getting fps problems/lag when I'm facing enemy forces, I don't have any problem with the Simba guys. I just get huge lag when there's enemies no matter if it's just one or 50.
Please help, I love this game and I want to finish it

Since we're still not psychic, it would help if you'd post your system specs and the content of your Sam2.log file.

The log file can be found in: C:\Program Files\Serious Sam2\ Sam 2

Your systems specs would be useful as well and can be filled out in your profile in your User CP.
You can find that though the menu bar at the top of this page at the far left.
But if you cant then don't worry, the Sam2 file should be enough to start.
It just make it go faster is all in the event you need help to locate the proper drivers for your system.

I'm no psychic, but I predict the solution to this problem can be found in dozens of threads in this very forum. Actually, make it hundreds of threads.

Default Re: Lag while facing enemies?

I got two tips. Only try one of them at a time.

1)
Start -> Run -> type dxdiag -> Ok > click the 'Sound' tab -> set 'Sound Hardware Acceleration Level' to 0 -> close dxdiag -> play SS2

2)
Start up SS2 -> press 'alt + ctrl + del' to display Task Manager -> right click on Sam2.exe -> click 'Set Affinity' -> uncheck CPU1 -> Ok -> go back to playing SS2

(remember to keep SS2 open while trying tip 2, since you are editing settings of a task, not the actual executable)

Default Re: Lag while facing enemies?

I'd guess it's the onboard sound, like stated on other threads. SS2 doesn't perform very well on onboard sound due to the sheer amount of enemy sounds and such in the game - getting a proper soundcard is recommended. What Fiendan said might do the trick though

You should be running fine.
You may need to find what is slowing you down like a background program or memory allocated to the program etc.
But first make sure your system is running a 100% efficient.

http://www.pcpitstop.com/pcpitstop/default.asp

Run the full test and tweak as needed until you have it all checked good going across the board.
If it is still lagging then I do have a few things you can look at but make sure your tip top first.
If you need advice to get anyting to help just post here we will help your find what you need to get it done.

But changing the DX9 to OpenGL isn't as fun.
Which reminds me...reinstall your DX9 Offspring that might help.
And your chipset drivers as well.

Yeah, but I got the same thing when I had crappy Realtek AC97 onboard sound, the game would lag on any enemy/NPC encounter if I had my max sounds set to anything above 15. /gfx_iFinish=1 may not always solve the issue.

So if that doesn't work, you could try lowering the maximum amount of sounds to 15 from the ingame sound options and disabling EAX if it's enabled, that should do the trick without having to resort to lowering hardware accleration (which makes everything sound a bit distorted by the way - and lowering the maximum amount of sounds should boost your FPS on onboard sound anyway).

@ ZEN - I don't think you should EVER have to reinstall your chipset drivers for a single game, it's pretty risky and can cause more problems than it fixes, and in this case, it's 99% more likely that the problem is sound-related or what Shrinker said. Don't go reinstalling DX9 either, it may only need to be updated for newer games, but even then you don't need to reinstall.

EDIT: Also, the missing movie errors on the log files seem pretty suspicious to me. Are you able to see any cutscenes ingame? If not, it may be a faulty installation or something.

Just finding it weird that the log makes no mention of the patch version.
