CPU at 100%
Used to play this game before, 2-3 years ago. I played with my old computer and also an old laptop, - everything worked fine :)
Now... I have a new computer (which I bought 4 months ago), and it won't let me play... CPU gets boosted up to 100% and everything lags very very very very much. What do I do wrong? :(
HP Pavilion G7
750GB hard drive
AMD A6-4400M with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
Any help? :)
What do you mean by "lags very very very very much"?
What's your fps? Use cg_drawFPS 1 to display it.
If it's around 3, then your graphic card isn't recognized for some reason.
Thanks for you comment :)
By very very very very much lag, I mean like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l16ehUkE-YU
How do I use 'cg_drawFPS 1'? Where do I type it?
Are you using the video driver that came with the system? Usually it needs to be changed.. Go to Radeon and d/l a driver for your card from them.

You can write "/cg_drawFPS 1" (without the ") on the console. The console can be opened with Ctrl-Alt-ThatKeyOverTabWhichCanBeAnythingDependingOnYourKey boardLayout. A lot of commands can be used that way. But this won't really be necessary now because the problem is obviously that your GPU isn't used and that your CPU is trying to do all the job.
I don't know how to solve this problem. I recommend you to search on google and on this very forum for similar cases ("card not used", etc.). Avoid searching about "lag" since this term is very generic and will refer most of the time to a connection's latency. Good luck.
update your gpu driver from HP
Thank you guys for nice help :)
I did as swampy said, - updated the new driver, and everything works fine :)
Also contacted HP Support, but they had nothing more to add.
