Sluggish Demo of Armadillo Run - What am I Doing Wrong?

  • Thread starter Equate
  • Start date
In summary, a person downloaded a demo of http://www.armadillorun.com/ based on a recommendation from someone else and was interested in playing it. However, the game ran very slowly on their PC, taking over two minutes to complete the first tutorial. They asked for advice on what they might be doing wrong and another person joked about not putting molasses on their PC. It was suggested that their computer may not meet the game's requirements or that their video card may be the issue. Another person recommended checking for the genuine ATI driver, which ended up solving the problem. The person who had the issue had previously reformatted their computer and thought the driver provided by WIN XP would be sufficient.

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:

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 a lot 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!
