Default Laggy Graphics

My game has really laggy graphics almost like a strobing effect units move as if they have a very slow frame rate.

AMD Proccessor: phenom II x2 (3.0 ghz)
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4290
OS: Win 7 home Ed 64bit
RAM: 8 gigs
Dirrectx: 11


i have used in game chat to see if anyone else is having "strobing animations" or a laggy feel to their units and/or any kind of screen stickyness they only say in pvp matches but in pve it runs smooth. Is my hardware the problem cause its not running smooth.

try see what it stops lagging on and then slowly increase it to see if a certain option is the problem

Some players have reported issues with the game stuttering when using a hardware accelerated mouse, so if you are using one you could try turning off hardware acceleration or using a non hardware accelerated mouse and see if that helps.

You could also try turning off various graphics options within the game or setting them to low.

I have tried everything as far as disabling acceleration and its not helping. I think the problem is this game runs better with xp not win 7. i just dont get what the problem is none of my other games have any issues.

I need to fix these sluggish animations because it is making my game un playable

Don't think that win 7 would be a problem as I use win 7 64bit to and have no problem with the game in highest detail, except of course a sometimes laggy pvp.

Gamerguy,
The recommended (ie for best performance) would be a Raedon 5570 or better.

The minimum is a Gforce 8800. Your card is equal to a Gforce 9500 so it should work fine at minimal GFX settings. I do not know if the fact that it is an integrated chip as opposed to a stand alone card is an issue or not.

I wouldn't buy another card solely for this game. I'd only do it if you were going to upgrade anyhow. Ideally you want a GFX card with at least 1 gig of ram.

Take this advice how you want. Also, please note the following

well the way i opperate is i dont buy a new video card until i run into a problem that is caused by my old video card....so with that being said i think i might try a new video card as i need one anyway. But of course id like to know what could be causing all this laggy play if my card is already supposed to be able to handle the game
