Movement Controls (GOG version of D2)

Postby mikegonzalez2k » Tue Sep 10, 2013 7:21 am

I recently purchased the GOG.com version of Descent 2 and installed D2X-XL. The game seems to run fine except that the movement seems laggy. I tried mapping my keyboard back to the defaults, but the controls are still very unresponsive at times.

I will be accelerating holding the a key, and cannot turn with the arrow keys.
This only sometimes happens which is weird.
It almost seems as if while it is waiting for some processing to complete before it will return control of the getkeys. It happens often when there are lots of enemies, smoke trails, or other distractions which is why I'm thinking it's process related.

Anyone else experiencing this or know of a fix.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit with a 2.6 Ghz Quad Core i7 so I shouldn't have lag issues.

A massive amount of effects - particularly smoke - will significantly slow down even very powerful computers. I own a quad core i7 @ 3.6 GHz and a NVidia GTX 670, and I have scenes in certain levels that can cause the frame rate to drop to low two digit numbers.

Try to reduce smoke density.
