Question about Microsoft Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties for Windows
Last 2-3 years been getting worse. Most games seem affected. I'll play a game and after a few minutes of play it will pause - for just a few seconds - accompanied by a echoing of the sounds last hear. Then it 'releases' for more play, then pauses again, etc. etc.
My computer is old (5 years) so maybe I have some hardware wearing out? or do I need to free up some RAM?
This is due to using outdated hardware. Its not necessarily any one thing. Sure, more RAM and a new video card (even an upgraded processor if possible with your main board) will help. But if your computer is 5 years old, you need a new one for gaming purposes.
I've seen your problem countless times, and if you don't have an upgradeable computer, or its a name brand pc, you will need a newer one.
The reason it seems to get worse, is that #1, your hardware just gets older as time goes on, and #2, games become more sophisticated, resource intensive, and have higher system requirements.
Your computer can no doubt handle a lot of things without issue, but games, anything video intensive, or that require a high % of RAM, processor usage, or video usage are going to give you problems.
