slowing down in team games

Post by luukje »

ok my pc is slowing down a lot on 3v3 lategame.
I dont want to be the one lagging but can I do something about it?
Im a real tech noob so if somebody can help me?
The pc itself says "no virtual memory left".

Can I make some more?
Or should I clean up?

Or am I just short on RAM?
I have 512 mb and a 256 mb video card.

Definitely short on RAM. video card should be fine. Check your comp (or post model/manufacturer here) and see what you can upgrade to. RAM is very cheap.

You can fix by telling Windows to make virtual memory bigger, but that requires hard drive usage (probably not a big deal) and will also slow things down. You don't want the real-virtual memory ratio to get way out of whack with the standard (Windows is flexible, but up to 1x-2x virtual to real is probably the max you should use).

I feel your pain, I have 512 mb RAM too and it's a total disaster.

You would notice a huge difference with just another 512mb and it's pretty cheap these days.
