    Default slow? or just me

    Is the game running slow or is it just me or my computer I feel like half of my time is spent waiting?

    It doesn't seem to be happening for me. I think that you need to have a good graphics card.

    I'm using the newest Macbook from Apple running Windows Vista 64-bit and noticed a big improvement when I changed out the RAM from 2GB to 4GB. It wasn't all that slow to start with, but it's much smoother now.

    I have several computers in my house, I will try to get FreeRealms running on each one and see how it runs. My main computer (laptop) is less than 6 months old and I have had no problems at all.

    Gateway M-7315u
    Intel Pentium Dual Core
    CPU T3200 @ 2.0 GHz
    4.0 GB RAM
    250 GB hard drive with an external 100 GB hard drive
    Running Vista Home Premium 64 bit

    Yes, I am spoiled

    Looking up my video card:
    Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family (10 SM4.0, 64 MB DDR3, PCI)
    Yeah... whatever that all means LOL I know it isn't an expensive "gaming" video card....

    You do need the good graphics card... if it is going a bit slow or not looking to sharp for you, you can try to update your graphics card driver... that worked wonders for one of the computers I built... I hadn't updated that card in.. well, a while, LOL... and after the update it was perfect.

    Your internet connection is also going to matter..

    Also, I prefer to run the game in "Windowed" mode rather than full screen. Click the settings at the upper right of the page and you can change to windowed mode and set a lower resolution. That may help as well!

    Thanks everyone! I updated my driver and that helped a bit but I'm going to have to get a better graphics card to fully enjoy the site.

    Have you tried turning down the graphics? It may not look as pretty but it could help with the running of it.

    Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'.
    I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.
