If I play a game, like Morrowind, painkiller, etc..ANY game, whenever a cutscene comes in, and a video plays, it skips to holy heck...
I'm using the game disk in my DVD drive, as opposed to my cd burner drive.
my specs are
Windows XP Service pack 1
Ge Force3 Ti 500
AMD XP 1800+
768 mb sd ram
sound blaster value
Pioneer DVD rom drive
buslink cd/rw 52x32x52.
Can someone explain why this skipping happens?
Thanks in advance
I had a ge force 4 installed, but I got the ge force 3 for nothing, so I decided to check it out. I still have the 4, but even with the 4, I still had these problems. A friend suggested that the cd has anti-piracy something or other, and its trying to access the video though it. Whatever that means.
If anything, the game would perform poorly during the game, rather than the cutscenes, as cutscenes are premade, and don't depend much on the video card. Run a spyware/adware check, and redownload video codecs.
When i had the Ti4200 i was playing JediKnight2 Outcast and the game ran fine on low but the cutscenes were impossible to play practically. I dont see why the video card wouldnt have much to with it since it has to render those premade but still needing to be buffered and rendered movies in game. Processing power could also be a perdicament things tend to get skippy when the processor is being over worked
