I am completely new to Crystal Space and just downloaded the latest pseudo stable release (0.99) and the CSLibs version 0.99r0_018. I use Microsoft Visual Studio 7.1 under Windows XP with a Pentium IV 3.2 GHz and an NVidia GeForce 4 AGP graphics card (yeah, it's old, I know...) with 64MB of memory (the graphic card has 64 MB, main mem is 1 GB). I use the NVidia drivers from their website (version: from dec, 10th, 2005).

Now, my problem is that I compiled everything and then started "startme.exe". The first few demos ran perfectly fine and smooth (not "incredibly fast" but still "smooth"). Then I started the "Particle demo" (Walktst with the particle map) and that one wouldn't work: It ran _horribly_ slow. Like 1 frame per 20 seconds or so. Ok, I though, no big deal: Try the next demo. Same problem. So I started the first demo again. Same problem. It ran horrbily slow. Reboot. Try first demo: Still too slow... Hmmmm... Okay, I deleted all generated config-files (application data/<user name>/Crystal*-folders), rebooted and tried again: The demo (the first one, or the second one) were still running terribly slow.

Any idea what could be going on?

Thanks! -- And btw: While it was working, it looked great!

I haven't had any problems, but I am guessing that it is just a hardware defficiency on your part (no offense - your card is a *little* bit out of date)  Right now, CS doesn't do very much lessening of the AGP traffic (comparatived to top end engines) and with an AGP1x (I'm assuming?) port, this will tie up the connection to NO END.
