My games been having issues lately. It gets slow sometimes, annoyingly slow. But the bizarre part is, during those periods when it seems to grind, the cpu is nowhere near maxing out. In fact, the slower the game gets, the lower the usage. Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason, except the damn program's lazy! IT runs great...when it's using all the cpu it can. So what gives?

It might be hitting the hard drive or some other slower component, so the CPU is actually waiting for it to catch up.

That's what I was thinking, but to this degree? Sometimes it runs great, other times it doesn't even want to move. Meh, this one's a stumper. I'm thinking it started when I installed the seasons patch.

And I forgot to mention the most baffling thing: sometimes when I reboot from XP to Vista, it starts to behave! And vice versa...Vista to XP. Using the very same game files.

I haven't installed a seasons path. My game runs great without it. This could be the very first time Maxis comes up with an almost glitch free expansion smile
