    What version are you using?  DX9 or DX11?  Video Card?  Tesselation?  Anti-Alias?

    Second, what other programs do you have running?

    Third, most important - What OS and how much ram?

    Well your video card is getting a little old. Not that TWS requires high end graphic card, but you could use an upgrade.

    Rest should be fine.

    I would says its probably the 32 bit OS and the 4 gigs RAM...the game utilizes lots of RAM and I had the same issue until i upgraded my OS to 64 bit and added 4 more g's. Kinda tough upgrading everytime a new mmo comes out I know, but I guess thats just the nature of the beast that is PC gaming. :(

    Except Win 7 is a memory hog in itself. I would actually think about upgrading to Win 7 64bit and increasing RAM to 8GB. I just bought 16GB of DDR3 RAM for around $100, so it's not too expensive.

    EDIT: Just make sure you get the right RAM if you do. Older motherboards don't support DDR3 Ram, so you'll have to check and make sure you dont use DDR2.

    Sounds like Age of Conan all over again. They still haven't fixed memory leaks on that and it is mostly to do with a 32bit OS. As soon as I got a win7 64bit it solved all the problems. 4Gb was fine to run AoC and TSW is technically inferior so there is no need to upgrade that.

    Are you also coming from the in-game browser? image

    Completely wrong about that.  That card can run the game, but for full options you're going to need a new card.

     

    To the OP - make sure your drivers are up to date.  see if you can upgrade to a higher OS with 64 bit.

    I would say upgrade the ram, but that caps at 4gb for 32 bit doesn't it?

    Oh thanks, best most misinformed troll post I found all week.

    Yes: it really helps with 64 bit OS. a lot! and worth it - TSW is probably the best MMO ever made the last 6 years, it's innovative, awesome combats systems and awesome story. I'm enjoying it like I did wow at launch.

    How exactly is that trolling? Are you saying TSW is far more resource hungry than age of conan ever was with its poor optimization? Did you even play that game?

    this is an issue with 32bit operating systems..

    Try the following in this link

    http://www.cadforum.cz/cadforum_en/qaID.asp?tip=5551

     

    Your OS is limited to the amount of ram it can allocate to software, doing what the guy says in the above link might help a bit..

     

    Im suprised people still use 32bit operating systems... 64bit has been around and working fine for ages..

     

    Anyway hope the above link helps.. game is bloody awesome :)

    Inferior to what?

     

    You do realise its probally one of the most advanced MMORPGs out on the market graphics wise.. technically that is..

    Cant think of any other that supports tesselation and other dx11 features..

     

    Only one that comes close is Entropia Universe

  • AdokaumAdokaum CardiffMember Posts: 83

    Pretty much my whole post I was comparing TSW to funcoms previous mmo (Age of Conan) because of the same memory issues present there, so if it wasn't clear enough what i was comparing it to then you need to l2read.

  • AlienShirtAlienShirt Crashed Flying SaucerMember Posts: 621 Uncommon

    TSW still has memory leak issues. Even with Windows 7 x64 and 8GB memory I encountered it multiple times while closed beta testing.

  • Loke666Loke666 MalmöMember Posts: 19,282 Rare

    I do remember that AoC had a lot of problem with 32 bits OS and they do have the same engine so it is not impossible that it have the same issue.

    OP: A new videocard and upgrading to Win 7 64 bits would help a lot. Some more memory wouldn´t hurt either but you need to upgrade windows to 64 bits for that.

    Ugh I thought you were going to elaborate on your experience.. I am dissapoint.

    Eat me!

  • andreawalesandreawales WalesMember Posts: 44

    Thanks for all the awesome advice guys , seems an upgrade required is the majority of the advice ... so I'll have to struggle through until I get paid again and maybe upgrade .. worst part is I get paid monthly ! Sob :(

    On the plus side if there has ever been a game worthy of an upgrade this is it ! :-)

    Thanks again :)
