Dmc 4 moive & gameplay lag

I was able to play DMC4 on my pc without any issues, but after I had to reformat and reinstall windows xp (long story), the game is not even playable. After I reinstalled the game, I noticed that the sfx in the main menu would lag (ex. female voice trying to say the name of the game, but said "devil devil devil may cry", and hearing multiple clicks from moving my cursor to select an option when I only moved it once). I overlooked the issue and started a new game, only to find that the same problems were happening in the introduction cinemetc, such as the soundtrack stuttering while the video was still in motion, or vice versa. Then I started playing the first level, but both the video and sfx were lagging during gameplay, making it unplayable. Any ideas as to what is going on?

System Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.70 GHz
4 GB of RAM
Nvidia 9600 GT 512MB PCI-E video card
Windows XP Pro

Have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your video and audio hardware? If you reformatted your hard drive, all of that would have been deleted. Try going to the manufacturers website for each component and getting the newest drivers. Hope this helps.

Notes on Sound and Video Cards

a.) Problems with the Intel i740 Chipset
Users with an Intel i740 chipset may experience a dithered pattern overlaying the game in the front-end. Gameplay should remain fully playable.

b.) Problems with the ATI Rage Pro Chipset
For Windows 98 users:
The recommended drivers for the ATI Rage Pro chipset are the latest reference drivers found on http://www.ati.com/. We recommend Version 4.12.2632.

For Windows 2000 users:
Ensure that DirectX 8.0 is installed. It can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?ReleaseID=27742. Once installed, right-click on the FIFA 2002 shortcut on the desk top, select Properties, and add "3D=dx8z" to the end of the "Target" property.

c.) Problems with the S3 Savage4 Chipset
Users with an S3 Savage4 chipset may experience minor graphical issues in the front-end. Gameplay should remain fully playable.

d.) Problems with the KYRO Chipsets
In 640x480 the Pause menu overlay will appear to be missing part of the background. To fix this issue, set the resolution to 800x600 or higher. This will not affect game play in any way.

e.) Video Cards NOT supported by FIFA 2002
3Dfx Voodoo 1
3Dfx Voodoo Rush
Hercules Thriller 3D
Diamond Stealth II
Number Nine Revolution IV
ATI Rage II
Chromatic Mpact 2
S3 Virge
S3 Virge VX
S3 Virge DX/GX
S3 Trio 3D



Notes on Windows

FIFA 2002 supports Windows 95b, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME and Windows XP.

*NOTE - To install the game properly on Windows 2000/Windows XP, you will need administrator access to your machine. Consult your Windows 2000/Windows XP documentation for more information.

Known problems with Windows 2000/Windows XP:

During testing, some video cards experienced problems due to driver incompatibility issues. Check your 3D card manufacturer's web site to obtain updated Windows 2000 or Windows XP drivers.

First: Try open it as an administrator if your not using XP. I don't really think there's anything else to do than get a new pc, or something.

Sim City4 Deluxe Edition-D:/ not a valid Win32 application.


I also have Sim City 4 Deluxe edition, and the package came with 2 CDs. Which were, the download and installation CD, and the gameplay CD. Now if you put in the Game Play CD without putting the Download and Installation CD in first, then that message might come. And if not, then the Gmae Play CD might be damaged, you can try rubbing alcohal and blowing on the CD, but if that doesn't work, see if you still have a warranty and try replacing the CD.

Hope that helped!!!!! Please Rate!!!!!!
