Problems running Alien Breed 3D
Problems running Alien Breed 3D:
I don't have a very powerful PC. Here's my specs:
P4 2.80GHZ
Nvidia 5600FX
1 Gig ram
All my other Amiga games work fine. Some games test it alittle such as Fighting Spirit or Shadow Dancer running in Cd32 config. And AGA Aladin, But I only get a few crackles now and then when the CPU load goes over 99%.
Gloom works fine in High Res and with all the bells and whistles turned on.
But Alien Breed 3D. No matter what I do, always maxing out the CPU in Winuae? And I can't figure out why. I've tried numerous configurations.
Can anyone help pls?

The last beta is 2.3.3

Photon 03 September 2011 22:02

He probably means version from August 25, 2011?

trydowave 04 September 2011 10:26

sorry, i meant 0.8.25

If that's a version number and not a date as Photon suggests then you may want to grab the latest beta from the 2.3.3 beta thread in this forum.

There's been 1 or 2 changes since the one you are using...

Well the odd few thousand changes :)

He probably means he downgraded to a very early version and it works in that.

Probably, odd strategy on his or her part..Later normally means better..

Do you want to solve this properly? (=using latest version)

100% CPU% is normal if CPU mode is fastest possible.

Check following:
- Make sure priority is normal or below normal. (Some systems have issues even if priority is norrmal with 100% CPU usage)
- Try DirectDraw mode.
- Check CPU Idle (CPU panel). Make sure it is not more than few steps from left.
- Check Sound buffer size.

and so on..
