Even a computer with a good configuration can only support and display particular graphics. Users playing video games need a system that supports games' graphics to avoid poor display: for example, a straight line can easily be displayed as a zigzag line. Users can also face a lag problem when trying to play a game. If the game is not configured properly, the user can come across these problems. Have a look at the article below to see details of the possible issues faced and how to solve them.
I am having problems with my Need For Speed Undercover: both graphics and lag problem!
My Graphics problem:
None of the lines are straight; they are all zigzagy! It's hard to explain but you know in the program (Paint) that comes with XP when you draw a diagonal line it's not straight and comes up as all zigzagy! That's what absolutely everything is like in NFS! I've done all the graphic options and resolution and stuff! I did notice that changing the resolution does make it better but it's still not normal. I have tried the auto config button on my monitor but I still have the same problem! Is it a problem with the game or the PC?
My Performance problem:
Just the normal lag lag lag lag mini freeze lag (lol). I tried lowering the graphics but there is nearly no difference between the highest and lowest! At the start of some videos it lags: you can hear the sound but not see the screen for a couple of seconds.
If you have a solution, please tell me; and if you have this game on PC, can you tell me how it runs and your specifications!
You will have to set the processor to affinity. To do this:
I have to admit it's pretty pathetic that very little effort or thought went into the testing of this game before they released it on the shelves.
- Run the NFS Undercover game.
- Press Alt+Tab to come out.
- Open up Windows Task Manager (Ctl+Alt+Del).
- Click on the Processed tab and find your game or application
- Right click on the game or application and select Set Affinity.
- You will see CPU0 and CPU1 checked. Uncheck either one.
- Click OK
- Go back into your game or application and you will now be running your program on one core."
