While the head ani is displayed, the FPS gauge does not change for me but if I try to turn the ship the movement is choppy.  It stops if I disable vsynch but then I have problems with tearing.
Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Herra: Funny, that nearly exactly describes the theory I had about the issue on IRC earlier.

technopredator: The issue has nothing to do with respective hardware or running applications, so a comparison of Task Manager would reveal nothing of any pertinent use.

In this topic I described a rather similar problem, with the difference that "Freespace 2 stopped working" when it happened.

After some testing I found a solution for my problem, in setting various compatibility flags in the properties of the .exe. After I initially tried 4 options I narrowed it down to two:

  • campatibility mode: Windows 7

(which stands for Windows 7 32bit I guess, so it might help those who, like me, run a 64bit Windows)

  • run as administrator

Since running the .exe with these compatibility flags I had no more crashes. It might not help with the "lag", but I figured I'd mention it anyway, just in case...;)
