F1 2010 PC Bug

#1 Posted by PandorianGR (6 posts) -

Hi, I bought F1 2010 the day it was released and for a long time I played the game pretty good. The last month though, when I play, suddently the framerate falls (from about 35 to 10). I noticed that when I press Alt - Esc, when I resume the game, the framerate is high again. Any idea why is this happening? I have the same prob with dirt2 too.  Thanks...

I've had all sorts of weird issues with slowdown on Codemasters racing games. The slowdown is really weird too.. it's not your usual "skip a few frames" slowdown, but more of a "drive in slow-mo for a bit".

I contacted Codies and they told me several solutions. Finally I found that it was a(or several) startup program(s). I followed the steps at  http://www.codemasters.com/codem/selective-startup.php and I disable all my startup programs and everything is fine now. Now I am trying to find which program is(or are) the problem.

Also Try Game Booster (Google It). It helps a lot
