I've mentioned earlier that I play Age of Kings on my PC which is not exactly hard on memory but lately I have a game quality problem.

The game has a slight hesitation that an inexperienced gamer probably would hardly notice but it drives me nuts.

I use windows 7 and have changed the settings to high performance with a very slight improvement.

Had a major clean up, all recently downloaded programs are gone, ran Malwarebytes and closed all those little programs that run at start up.

 

Zilch.

 

Just checked my RAM and noticed that only 3.05 of the 4gb is available is this usual?

 

I have an original disk plus a downloaded version, both have the same problem.

Make sure everything is on-the-wire, internet (if playing online), keyboard and mouse.

Shut down all unnecessary programs.

Snooze or disable your AV.

See how it runs now.

 

IIRC, on a x32 system you will only have ~75% of RAM showing as available.

Sounds like a case of micro stuttering which for me was caused by Origin,steam,ubisoft. It is a well known problem and in nearly all cases the person suffering from them most likely blames their hardware in their computer. I was frustrated with this issue on many occasions and after some long long trial and error attempts i finally narrowed it down to the bugs in downloaded games and trust me these 3rd party downloading headaches are full of them. In my case, once i deleted origin,ubisoft and steam and then reinstalled (NOT DOWNLOADED THEM)i had absolutely no micro stuttering and all my games now run the way they should straight of the disc with NO internet connection needed.jUST REMEMBER YOU HAVE TO GET RID OF YOUR SAVED FILES AND START AGAIN that way your bugs are gone. Thats where the problem started for me.Having said that, there are games like Crysis3 for example, that need an internet connection to be installed but they are the games i will not buy on PC as like i said once you introduce a third party all your troubles start. My advice is to play only games which can run of your disc without an internet connection on PC and leave the rest to xbox or ps3. This is my opinion after a lot of headaches and now i even have a smooth running computer withpout bugs and my games run like they were meant to without a hitch. That is the truth. :thumbsup2:

Thanks for this.

 

Is AV antivirus?

 

I don't seem to have any of the programs mentioned in the second post.
