    Dungeon Siege 2 Slow Startup

    Hi

    I have installed Dungeon Siege 2 on my windows xp pc. My problem is that Dungeon Siege 2 runs slow at startup, all other games works fine. Can you tell the reason why it slow ??? Even some times it caches, why ?

    Try Adding a parameter to the properties of desktop shortcut : Set bltonly to True, this forces blt mode instead of flip mode, which solves problems with older graphics cards. If the slowdown in performance does not occur when you try to save or start a game, Then on the desktop, click the right mouse button on the shortcut Dungeon Siege, and then click Properties. Click the Shortcut tab. In the Target box, click the end of the line of text, press the spacebar once, type bltonly = true, click Apply, then OK.

    I think its due to graphics card, you need to changing graphics settings as follows :

    1. Start Dungeon Siege.
    2. On the Main menu, click Options, then click the Video tab.
    3. In the Resolution list screen, click 640x480x16.
    4. In the Shadows list, click None.
    5. In the Filter list, click on bilinear filtering.
    6. Click OK.

    You can also add parameters to the properties of desktop shortcut, to increase its speed, Assigning to asynccursor False disables asynchronous cursor. This increases the speed of frames but slows the response time of the mouse. Assigning Vsync to False improves graphics performance. You can also do this by, on the desktop, click the right mouse button on the shortcut Dungeon Siege, and then click Properties. Click the Shortcut tab.
    In the Target box, click the end of the line of text, press the spacebar once, type asynccursor = false vsync = false, click Apply, then OK.
