Snipester is still being judged by the masses

Default Slowdowns in Freelancer

I get slow downs in the buy weapons screen at any location anywhere. It gets so slow it looks like its going 1-2 fps and the mouse lags like crazy. It doesn't happen in the buy commodoties screen. What could be the problem??

Gameplay is stuttery when the cruise engines are activation..

the engine emits a bright white/yellow light with gas like stuff comming out the back... Could it be the "smoke" slowing it down??

And when your going through the portals it can get slow a bit..

Anyone else get these problems?

Change your display settings to performance and see if that makes any difference.

The problem you're having is listed under known issues in the readme file for the game:

Performance Issue with ATI Radeon text display
Freelancer Trial Version can experience performance slow downs when a large amount of text is printed or updated on screen. The work around for this issue is to back off your Windows hardware acceleration settings by one notch in Settings\Control Panel\Display\Settings\Advanced. Once in this menu, you will either see Performance tab or Troubleshoot tab. Future ATI drivers may fix this problem, as they are aware of this issue.
