Q
Does anyone else have low FPS when turning on the flashlight? Sometimes it's fine but other times I start to drop to 50-30 FPS, even around 50 FPS the game feels slow. I am using DGVoodoo 2 and have followed the tutorial that KingKenny showed. I also tried removing my mods and adding back a unmodified autoexec.cfg but the results were still the same. I don't remember having low FPS with the flashlight playing before, could it just be because of newer hardware not working well with the game? I'm also using a CD copy of the game.

I don't know what to tell you, any modern PC should have no trouble running AVP2 at its' highest settings.
Check out the guide here on AVPG.
I've never had any issues with it.

Have you tried running it in compatibility mode?

Yes I've tried compatibility mode, I was still getting the low FPS, I even tried playing at 800x600 resolution rather than 1920x1080 but it was still the same for some reason. Also which guide would I need to look at for possible solutions?

I say uninstall it, then use the Abandonware digital version available here.

Try the widescreen patch too.

I will try to reinstall it but I wont download a copy online because I don't feel comfortable with that, I have the disc and I've never had any issues with this game until now.

You have the disc, there's literally no reason not to download the copy on here.
