    I grabbed both the last time they were on sale. I actually have my original IWar disks somewhere, too.

    I can’t get IWar2 to run decently, though; on my fairly beefy game machine it staggers along at ~2fps once the action starts.

      The GOG version runs that slowly?

      • Nack says:

        It does for me. I dunno; maybe I’m doing something wrong.

        • Brian Rubin says:

          Weird, it’s run smooth as silk on several computers both with AMD and Nvidia cards. What are you running?

          • Nack says:

            i5 3570, Nvidia 750 ti, I think 4G RAM, hooked up to a 1080p tv.

            It’s a buff enough machine, runs lots of stuff well.

            • Brian Rubin says:

              That’s really weird. My last iteration of my PC was well slower than that, and it ran it just fine. I mean it’s a 13 year old game. Do you have any crazy antivirus software like Norton, for example?

              • Nack says:

                Nope. The thing is, lots of other stuff runs well; I get a sane framerate in most games.

                • Brian Rubin says:

                  That’s so weird, and I’m not finding any easy solution either, in fact I’m not finding much mention of a frame rate issue at all. Are you using any mods?

  2. Nack says:

    I’m running everything stock, no mods. It’s on a vanilla win7pro machine that’s kept up to date with security updates, no weird hardware or special drivers or “helper apps” or “widgets” or whatever people call the modern equivalent of TSRs. I only use the machine for gaming, so it has Steam, Desura, Firefox and a bunch of games.

    The strange thing is, I get a decent framerate in the in-bridge transitions, it’s only when the game is displaying space that it all goes pear shaped.

Chime In!
