I just got me a copy of the game and apart from some serious lagging I'm really enjoying the game even though it's old and not all that pretty.
I'm running it on a 2.4GHz Pentium IV with a gig of ram and a nvidia geforce ti4600 graphics card so my hardware should be the issue here. I've tried it with and without the nvidia drivers (it uses opengl) and didn't notice any difference on how it runs.
One thing I picked up from the system logs is that the game also uses OSS but shouldn't ALSA support OSS? Can this cause performance issues?
Does anyone have any idea on what I could do about this?
