Hi!

I downloaded Track Mania Nations a few weeks ago and am having a fantastic time wading through all the tutorial tracks.

However I am finding that, from time to time, the graphics freeze and jump and stutter. This happens nearly every other run and is very annoying.

First thought was the Graphics Card. It is a 3 year old Nvidia GeForce FX 5200. It would seem to be OK for frame rate etc and I have the graphics set to 'Fastest' to take the strain off the card. However, whatever setting I use it still does this....

Could it be a programme bug? Or is the FX5200 just not up to the job?

Any help from you helpful folks would be much appreciated!

Jimmy.

Have you updated to the latest and greatest video drivers from Nvidia? Also, download and install the newest version of Direct X, which is Direct X 9.0c (which was recently updated). Even if you already have Direct X 9.0c installed, download and install it again due to it's updates.

If this doesn't help, then it may be programs that you have running in the background. Try going HERE and disabling some programs at startup (that starts when windows starts) as certain programs will rob your computer of resources (like cpu speed/power etc.). Be sure to read the instructions...it's not terribly difficult, but can be tedious. If in doubt about a program, then just leave it be! :thumbsup:

Let us know if this helps!
