Hey guys, Steven here. Very recently I re-installed San Andreas on my system after not playing for a while. Reason for that is because I had gotten a virus and the person that fixed my PC deleted San Andreas, and I never bothered to re-install until now. I get the game, and I get SA-MP, then while I play SA-MP I get a huge lag spike, then I'm like, "okay that's the first and last time". Then all of a sudden I get it again, and it keeps on going, I've been dealing with it for two days. Before I never had this problem, San Andreas ran as smooth as can be at low settings, but, it still lag spikes now, at low settings. I'll give you my specifications now.
Intel® Celeron® CPU 1.86 GHz
3 GB RAM
32-bit Operating System
Mobile Intel® 965 Express Chipset Family
Windows 7 Ultimate
Service Pack 1
I know, I know, bad Specs, but it still would run SA smoothly at low settings.
It never lag spiked like this before, and now, SA is using WAY more CPU as well.
It again, never did that either, it always ran good.
Now I come across this, I mean it's really crappy.
