    What are the specs of your computer? Your performance problem might be a limitation of your hardware, or maybe the software on your computer is causing the slowdowns.

    Sounds like hardware limitations. I tried to run with a crappy graphics card and it caused huge performance problems. What they list as being the lowest possible specs for game play is not accurate in my opinion. Internet connection could account for this as well, although I didnt have many problems with dial up some may.

    Is it a retail system like a Compaq or HP? Do you know the model number? We need to know the specs somehow.

    Psst. When you quote a post you can actually write your own text after it instead of making two posts.

    You should check out that nice big book that came with the game. I hear the devs hide all the need to know information in it from us gamers.

    There is an instruction book? They come with games? I have never heard of such! This is an outrage! Nobody reads those things, I get more info off the forums.
