Game Performance not satisfyable

Game Performance not satisfyable
(WinXP, Athlon XP 2000, RAM 1280MB, GeForce 4MX 64MB)

I use the latest release (2006/07/08) and it starts up fine but when I start a race the framerate drops to almost zero making it impossible to use.

Any idea how this can be changed? Can I apply any special settings or drivers that solve my problem?

Have you tried lowering the resolution in the game? You could try lowering the other graphic settings. Are directX and nvidia drivers updated?
I'm not familar with the perfomance of your video card, Anyone else?

Well you have a good RAM but you Graphic Card and Processor is a bit old... The Processor can handle the game with low/medium graphics but the Graphic Card needs an upgrade, I also used that, 2 years ago... so the problem could come from those.

mealejan: Try these things: turn off the HUD in the game, set the video to the lowest resolution on 16 bit color. Now turn the texture detail down to Low. Try playing like this. You'll have to listen to shift and you'll have no idea what your lap times are, but I think you'll see better performance with the HUD off. I have a GF4 MX440SE, I think that's the DDR version of your card, and I get about 10-15 fps doing the things I describe above. The rest of your system is probably fine, though not the fastest, you should have plenty of RAM and processor power to handle the game.

Is the Graphic-card agp or pci?
When using agp check your agp-aperture-size.
With you amount of RAM you have you can set it to 256MB or even more.

How about performance in other games?
Another source for the problem could be the OpenGL-Drivers for your card.

It's known to be slow with a GeForce 4 MX, but not that slow!

You want at least a GeForce 4 Ti!

I said that, because it struggles to do 25 FPS with a GeForce 4 MX under Windows XP Pro SP2.

I have a Geforce 4 mx with 64 mb ram. I had the same problem. I was getting terrible fps but other openGL games were fine. There is a setting under advanced in the Nvidia settings. Tweak that and it will fly. I was getting the same problem with racer also. That setting made all the difference.
