I really should keep that somewhere on my harddrive...

Although your problem is a bit different, as it only occures sometimes in specific situations, but I bet affinity change will fix it.

Default Re: Harpy and Scopion lags

still, doesn't works.
i got horrible lags with it.
i understand it's something with the sound.
because when i walk with the scorpion to the side (there is no voice when he goes to the side) i got no lags. i didn't think it's something with the sound before, so i didn't say. but when i installed the game, sam had increased voice speed. when he jumps i hear him with increased speed.
the problem came with the 2.70 patch.
i saw that:
2) On nV testing machines, just reinstalling new sound driver (SB Live was about) actually helped. So, it's advisable to update to the lastest drivers for your sound board.

it should help me, i just don't know how to reinstalling new sound drivers. i don't understand in all these computer things.

Yeah, right, either a dual core problem or a sound problem. Do you by any chance have a on board sound card?
Because SS2 doesn't like them.
Anyway: Try to reduce Max Sounds in Options -> Audio.
I'd suggest 10-15 max sounds. Also turn off EAX and see whether that makes any changes.

Edit: And post your sam2.log file, we can read out more about the specific problem from there.

Default Re: Harpy and Scopion lags

Right click on Computer->Properties->Device Manager-> Sound, video and game controllers.
Then better get a real soundcard.
But before doing that I'd suggest a fresh install of SS2.
The log tells, that there are way to many files missing as that SS2 could run probably.

See? Turn off EAX and reduce max sounds.

So we got:
1. Try turning off EAX and reduce max sounds. If fails -> 2
2. Reinstall SS2. If still fails -> 3
3. Check whether you got an onboard sound card.

i reinstalled ss2 today because i wanted to intall css2 (i was need to reinstall because of something.)
i turned it off already after the log. but it didn't helped.

I have to say, the problem came with the 2.70 patch.

Looks more like english than hebrew.
Anyway, looks good to me. There's no onboard soundcard.

So you basically a) reinstalled SS2, b) turned EAX off and c) lowered max sounds to 10 (or so) and still have the same problem? Well that's weird. And what was that with the log? Is this the newest log (from the fresh installed SS2) ?

Anyway, looks good to me. There's no onboard soundcard.

So you basically a) reinstalled SS2, b) turned EAX off and c) lowered max sounds to 10 (or so) and still have the same problem? Well that's weird. And what was that with the log? Is this the newest log (from the fresh installed SS2) ?
yeah.
turning off any sounds should help?
and most of the computer is in hebrew. i had no idea it was in english.

Hm your install isn't as fresh as it should be.
Go to Computer->Control Panel->Add or remove programs and remove SS2 from there.
Afterwards go to you SS2 dir (C:\Program Files\Serious Sam 2) and remove it completely (there should be some stuff left inside), just be aware: You'll loose your save games and your downloaded stuff (e.g. CSSII). If you want to keep them better copy them to a temporary location, so that in the end, there is nothing left in the Serious Sam 2 directory.
Now install it again (do not feed it with the downloaded stuff yet), simply test it and see if problems occur.

Well but you said that the log is from the fresh install, right?
But if you take a look at the log you can see lots of lines starting with 'ERR:' which basically tell you that some stuff was not able to get loaded.
Anyway: How about you try to use the game without patch, does that work?

Also, which version of SS2 do you have, and is it a 'real copy' or is it a copy from a site like direct2drive?

Actually, all of those missing .dsc files are completely irrelevant. It would seem that GeNeRiC_DeTeCteD neglected to make those files when adding "enemy" models to the player list. They aren't anything important, as they would just contain text to describe each model to the player.

everything was fine before the patch, but without the patch i can't use SSF, serious editor.

I own it in a store. didn't get it from a site, as i know it's a real copy.(or whatever that means, it's legit.)
edit: how do i uninstall a patch?

Hm, I see. Didn't know that, but what I know is that .tex files are relevant, and the log says that there are way more missing than normally.

I wasn't pointing at the legity, since direct2drive is a legal site, but is not compatible with the 2.070 patch (D2D actually has it's own 2.070 patch).

Also what is important: Which language is your Serious Sam 2?
E.g. the German version of SS2 is not compatible with the 2.070 patch (refuses to read disk), so maybe the hebrew (if you got that version) isn't compatible either (?).

Lol, than turn it off, too.
(IMO most of the music is good, I even have it on my mp3 player, and listen to it occasionally).
