Medieval 2 has very choppy battlemap gameplay on my computer. The thing is, canyourunit.com says I should be able to run it fine.

My specs:

CPU: Intel Core Duo at 2.0 GHZ

RAM: 2.5 Gigs

GPU: Intel GMA 950 with 256 mb video memory

I don't know about canyourunit.com, but I know that the system specs listed on the box/instruction manual of most games are often the minimum requirements. That is, the necessary specs to run the game well on the lowest quality settings.

Also,

One cause of those kind of problems is having other applications running that are taking up system resources. make sure that you don't have any unnecessary applications or processes running in the background

Hope that helps some

Does this happen only when you are fighting real-time battles, or elsewhere (like the campaign screen)?

Your problem is probably the integrated graphics card you have. Even though it is a 256mb, it isn't very powerful. If you're interested in purchasing a new graphics card, let us know. We'll need the make and model of your computer, and your price range for a graphics card.

I'm not a fan of canyourunit. It's good for telling you how much ram you'll need, but that's about it. The processor and graphics card recommendations are usually pretty inaccurate.

I question canyourunit.com's analysis checks as well. I checked my laptop a month ago to see if it can handle a resource heavy game (Company of Heroes), and it says that it's able to run both Company of Heroes and Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts on my computer just fine at normal or maybe peak settings....and yet, even after setting my game to the lowest settings, my game barely runs at all if not BSOD.

Okay, thanks.

I have a laptop, so upgrading is near impossible.

Thanks to everyone for the help.

You may be able to adjust the game display settings to lower graphics or improved performance.
Cheers,
John
