Hey guys! I was feeling very nostalgic and haven't played Freelancer since upgrading my computer and so I installed it again, set the windows XP compatability mode like I was supposed to, and tried playing it. The splash screen displays okay, but then it gets choppy. It's as if I was pausing and unpausing the game repeatedly and it makes the game unplayable. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Here are my computer specs
Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
16 GB RAM
Core i7-4820k @ 3.70GHz
Dual GeForce GTX 770 gfx cards
I'm using an original disc with no mods (vanilla). I have tried running with compatibility modes and without, as administrator, and installed it at D:\Freelancer. My .net framework 3.5 is active.
The only thing I can think of is that when the game starts it says it doesn't recognize my video card.
