Armadillo Run

  1. May 25, 2009 #1
    I just downloaded the Demo of http://www.armadillorun.com/" [Broken] since one of you guys suggested it a while back as an interesting game.

    I would love to play it, however, it runs slower than molasses on my PC - the first tutorial took over two minutes to finish.

    What am I doing wrong? :confused::frown:

    Well, for starters, don't put molasses on your PC...

    Apparently it has a fairly realistic physics engine but I'm not sure if that would be slowing your computer down alot. And I don't think the game requires alot of processing power. Maybe your video card?

    Have you checked to make sure your computer meets the games requirements?

    Might be the driver for the video card. I'm using the Microsoft version right now, I'll get the genuine ATI version now and see what happens...

    Genuine ATI driver did the trick! :blushing:

    I re-formatted my C: a couple of weeks ago and figured the video driver WIN XP provides should suffice. Should have known better, darn Microsoft crap... :mad:

    Thanks for the hint!
