Alien swarm lag?

Postby gl0ckage on Tue Jul 20, 2010 12:13 am

Ive never had trouble running other games but for some reasons i have well above the specs of alien swarm and get FPS lag at certain points in a map. Anyway to reduce the settings in a file like a autoexec in CS:S? found a config.cfg file but cant read all that jubble lol.

I can paste the file contents or upload it if you havent downloaded it yet.

Finished the campaign on normal with Sonic, EWJ and a buddy of mine iWikus. Good fun, we had some ball breakers near the end that took us 5 retries before we figured it out!

I've not had this issue with it yet, it might just be you. Good luck fixing it though

From the small amount I got to play before the game went and crashed on me, it's alright. Controls are a little finnicky, I'm not really much of a fan of top-down shooters...

Seems like the Dawn of war 2 engine. Top down shooter, level up and unlock new weapons. But IMHO its good, just seems difficult with bots or not 4 players.

'tis a grand game.
Got to level 9 now, Technician is porbably my favourite class.
Took a while to get through the biomass level, about 5th go I think on normal :lol: Then my connection gave up on the final level. We tried that on Hard and failed. Lots of times. Then I lost connection :cry:
If anyone wants a game, I'd probably be up for it.
