Half Life jerky

  bamfiesler 18:32 06 Jul 2004

Hi again.

Ok, this time got HL Generations, and with both HL and OpFor the movement forward still doesn't stop right away when lifting off 'W', and the mouse look is jerky, with some odd after-movement.

The only thing I have done since I last played HL earlier this year is a reformat of the main HDD, and am now running MRU Blaster and Sygate PFW; that, other than AVG, is all that runs.

Any ideas?

I would suspect that as the most likely cause.

Have you tried updating your graphics card drivers?

Graphics driver up to date. It's a TNT Riva 64 which worked fine on the game earlier this year. It's gettting blown out soon, but I cannot figure out what the prob is, other than what Pesala suggests.

It's wise to shut down all background progs including antivirus and firewall before running H/Life or any game for that matter

avg, mru blaster, and sygate all knocked out; game still the same. The mouse view jerks away rapidly from your filed of view once you stop moving. Also, both games appear to run rather sluggishly.

What resolution/video mode are you playing the game in - as these could cause the problem too

Have you tried running it under OpenGL and does that make any difference?

this card doesn't support opengl; running the game in software mode is awful.

Just updated the Nvidia driver. There is provision for running under opengl, but haven't tried that. The games now run worse than ever, with wild, erratic movement, even if I don't use any keys or the mouse! These are authentic discs I am using.
