MIDTOWN MADNESS (1 + patch) Keyboard lag!
Posted: 10-28-2003, 12:25 AM
and I tried everything suggested (I just installed the game today, so
I didn't feel the need to reinstall it) and nothing worked.
The game used to run fine on this machine:
Windows 2000 SP2/3
AMD Thunderbird 1.1Ghz
512 MB PC-133
MS Internet Keyboard w/ IntelliType drivers
3dfx Voodoo 5 5500
Creative SBLive! 5.1
But one day (it's been so long now, I don't recall if it just
'happened' or if I installed the game after having it previously
uninstalled for some time) the game had the probelm precisely as is
described on the page I link to above (even after you let off a key,
the game still gets input for as many as ten seconds!).
I have since built an entirely new machine (specs below), but the
problem persists. Is it a problem specifically with Windows 2000
SP3+, because I do recall it working with SP2, and I *thought* it
worked under SP3, although that may have been when it all went
wrong... but if this is a problem, I don't think Microsoft should
overlook it, no matter how old the game is, I still love it! I saw
the disc laying on my shelf today and thought I'd install it... did
so, and have the same problem.
My new system:
Windows 2000 SP4
AMD Athlon XP 2100+
1 GB PC2700
ATi Radeon 9500 Pro w/ Catalyst 3.8 drivers
Same keyboard, same soundcard
Any help would be appreciated!
