Performance issues while playing Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
I've noticed something really annoying when playing the game Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 through Boot Camp (booting native of course) on my iMac.
It all runs smooth the first and maybe the second session, but when I continue to play for 3+ sessions it takes a LONG time for the game to load at the beginning of each map. Sometimes it's not even possible to do anything for almost 3 minutes straight.
It's extreme delay (like I had 0.1 FPS) and it continues to be like this for 3 minutes (or more), but it stops when I've played a while on the map. But then again, next map, it's the same story. I don't have any problems with any other game.
However, when I quit the game and start it up right after, it stops but starts over again. I can play smooth the first few rounds, then delay.
Anyone else have this problem?
Hey XS...Sounds like memory or cache problems to me. How much memory do you have? Are you playing on XP, Vista or Win 7? Make sure you have all the updates that are available installed, such as, Apple Software Update (from within Windows ???), Windows ??? Updates themselves, and the latest COD/MW 2 updates.
I've just finished playing COD Modern Warfare 2 on my Mac and it was awesome. The graphics and scenery are unbelievable. Gameplay was smooth and very responsive. I detected no lag. Not sure how to check the fps though.
I have noticed that after the Windows Vista Desktop appears I have to wait about 2 minutes for Win to complete booting up. Probably something in the background. If I try to launch COD too quick then I sometimes get this "Steam" file compatibility alert. The same is true for quitting COD. I have to wait the same 2 minutes before I can reboot back into Mac OS. Too quick here causes a lot of delays and once a lockup that required a hard startup. Other than that no problems. There could also be some online communications in the background slowing things up. I believe a couple of inadvertent key presses could connect you to the Steam Online Community during gameplay but I'm not sure. I'm not very Windows savvy.
Game Problems: I had a couple of glitches at first that required a reboot but that seems to have been resolved with the latest in-game app update.
Also, my Boot Camp experiences have been flawless to perfect so far. Knock on wood.
