I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue, a windows issue, or an overland issue.
I hope it's just a windows issue . Anyhow. If i get quite a few different sectors
on the screen at the same time like in the screenshot below:
(I've added a few sector types, and changes some stuff around, if you didn't notice )
The map rendering lags quite a bit, you can cause the game to crash if you
spam directions as well.
Now for my environment:
I am running Windows xp pro, on a P4 1.4 with 256megs of RDRAM.
I have an http service (apache) running, but I experience the lag
even with no other major programs loaded (ie VC++ or PHOTOSHOP).
I've also stopped ALL extra programs other than MM2k and Cygwin.
I notice the lag through all connections.
Ok, I think that's it...
So my question is:
Is this common to everyone or just those running cygwin?
Or, is my system simply to burdened to process all those tokens?
Thoughts and suggestions would be great.
