Postal 2 stutter issues[Repost ,but with fresh details.]
« on: January 01, 2014, 01:48:47 PM »
Hey I know I have posted this before, but since postal 2 is now on steam and I have bought it, it still has the same old issue. Stutter.

*EDIT*

Heres my youtube video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKi86elqyjI

Heres my specs:

Amd Athlon x2 Dual Core 3.18GHz 6400+ CPU
4Gb DDR2 ram
Nvidia GTX 500 Ti 1gb GDDR5 video card
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Now I know and I have readed alot of forums, and everyone says that its dual core issue with unreal engine, and Ive tried everything from setting affinity, to chaning compability. I even have 3d3overrider and it doesn't help. And I have gamebooster too.

I tried setting this parameter for the shortcut on steam for postal 2

-CPUSPEED=3000

What is interesting is that the game sorta goes better, but then starts to have these slowdowns again. If I change it to 900 or 6000 it starts to be very slow.

I have no clue how to fix it. I know that DEVS are trying to patch it up, and I wish them luck. But Im out of ideas.

Btw Happy 2014 year!!!  ;)
Hey!! I love postal 2 :D played when i was 12 first time and love it since then, i also play games like Left 4 dead 2 and Minecraft :p , If you want to be my friend send me PM requesting invite and I will tell you my steam or skype.

Have you tried this
AMD Dual-Core Optimizer Version 1.1.4

EDIT: You're on win7, that optimizer is not for you  :-[

Make sure you're using AMD CPU drivers if they're available for your processor/OS...that may help

I relate to your problem, I started playing P2 and other games on a AMD X2 3800+, it had the same problem (RDTSC core synchronizing).  I was running XP, and the Dual-Core Optimizer fixed it. You may want to dual boot to win7/winXP SP3 w/the dual core optimizer for gaming. Or install VirtualBox and make a virtual winXP SP3 w/Optimizer rig, but that would probably have less performance.

A user on the Steam forums found this solution. Maybe it will help you too.

I see no reason why you shouldn't. Report back with results.

That's really unlucky. Usually on of those fixes you tried should have helped you.

With all those incoming bug reports (the Report Bug button on the crash window actually works now!), I'm sure the devs will fix most of the bugs. We just need to be patient.

The Postal 2 devs really don't frequent these boards, this is a modder community.

I did, I got banned from postal 2 steam forums because an moderator said that Im
"too young" Even thou Im turning 18 in 25th april, still Im 17 and Im mature, I don't care what some moderator says. It was quite some time go, and he banned me for no reason. Yet he still trows shit down on me saying Im this, Im that.
You should deal with him.
