I'm having a problem with my recently purchased RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 game and was wondering if anyone could help.
When I first begin a scenario graphics run very smoothly, especially as you navigate around the park, but once I start building rides (and ESPECIALLY when the game turns from day to night) the graphics start to become very jerky - as you navigate, the screen lags, movement is not smooth at all. On one site I noticed that many people had asked "Why does my game suffer from framerate slowdown / lags, graphical glitches, crashes?" - but I couldn't find the answer to the question anywhere.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
My computer seems to be fine with specifications - here is what I have versus the requirements
OS: XP recommended (I've got XP)
Processor: Pentium III 1 GHz or equivalent. 1.3 GHz or higher recommended (I've got 1.83)
Memory: 512 MB RAM (I've got 1014 MB RAM)
Hard Disk Space: 1.2GB free (I've got 35.6GB left)
CD-ROM drive: 4x speed or faster. 8x recommended. (I've got 8x DVD+/-RW Combo drive so I think that's it)
Video: 64MB Hardware T&L compatible video card (I've got 224MB Intel Calistoga Graphics Controller - 945GM Express Chipset Family)
Sound: Windows XP (or any before that) compatible 16-bit sound card (I've got SigmaTel Audio - doesn't say anything else but the problem is not with the sound anyway)
So I'm thinking maybe it is a problem with drivers not being updated or something? Don't see why they wouldn't be though.
Any suggestions more than welcome!
