Default supreme commander

alright, so my friend is flat out retarded and has a phobia of posting threads on forums, so im posting for him, hes got a mid line gaming computer, that is unable to run supreme commander, one of our favorite games to LAN, and so he is continually bitching about how annoying it is to be left out for 3 hours while we play our game, he just replaced his video card, and it didnt fix the problem, and all drivers are up to date, according to him, the problem isnt with boot up or crash, he just cant get over 2-3 FPS even on lowest settings, theres something wrong with something in his components im thinking, anyone have any advice? (note: i cant do anything to his computer and hes an annoying bitch about everything and prolly will not open his computer, and will not take it to a shop, and its possible he might not even be willing to try to update the drivers

So lets see, he claims everything is up to date but will not let you see, he won't take it in to make sure nothing is wrong, and will not consider possibly upgrading or updating any parts? If all that is the case then you should probably smack him in the side of the head in an attempt to get him to realize that he needs to do one or all of those things so he can get help an get the game working.

Otherwise, I don't think there anything you can actually do; since someone more than your friend has to look at the computer to figure out what may be wrong with it.

IF you can do any thing to his computer check the ram and cpu. Rts's and Supreme Comander in particular require memory and processing power over graphical grunt.

good luck. sounds like you need it.

Supreme Commander shouldn't be played by r-tards.

Some helpful advice:
- Try running it with sound off. If this improves fps then update/reinstall sound drivers.
- Direct X; make sure this is up-to-date.
- Patch the game - maybe a bug that's been fixed with an update (beware; SupCom's support page is pretty gash, there's like 11 seperate patches or something)
- Turn off anti-virus, etc.
- Try a registry cleaner (CC cleaner or similar)


If he's sure that all his drivers are up-to-date and he hasn't got any virii and his computer meets the minimum spec for the game then get him to format and reinstall windows, then update his drivers, install the game and try that.
If that fails then he still needs a better machine to run it. SupCom is notoriously CPU/RAM intensive, less so on the graphics.

Hope it helps. SupCom is a fantastic game, just going through the campaigns again on hard.

the sound card idea is pretty decent, ill let him no that one, he also says hes unable to find patches anywhere for the game? which bamboozles me because ive found them easily and he requests me finding them for him and sending them to him, which is simply not my job, he also does not have anti virus, so i would actually guess a virus might be the problem, but the little faggot would never admit that he was stupid enough to be browsing the pornz without protection.
