Same for me was AVG when i had RavenShield and it was strange because AVG shouldnt affect the game i was only running the standard Antivirus no firewalls or anything.

Crashed immedietely online disabled it and was fine!

Have you tried to disable one of your cores if you have a multicore processor?

Go to task manager, go to the processes tab, right click the Ravenshield process, click Affinity.

In that menu, uncheck one of your cores.

And for those that are going to say: Rasa you nublet, there's fixes for that I say: I'm quite aware. They just don't work for me.

The .exe or settings in .ini's were probably modified (do you remember doing that?)

Oh no Grish. I dont dare tuch the ini. files. But I have looked, the old copy file, the one wich works without lag:
[D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice]
HighDetailActors=True
UsePrecaching=True
UseTrilinear=True
AdapterNumber=-1
ReduceMouseLag=False
UseTripleBuffering=False
UseHardwareTL=False
UseHardwareVS=True
UseCubemaps=True
UseCompressedLightmaps=True
MaxPixelShaderVersion=1
UseVSync=True

is different from the new file, the one that has lag but shows gore:
[D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice]
HighDetailActors=True
UsePrecaching=True
UseTrilinear=True
AdapterNumber=-1
ReduceMouseLag=False
UseTripleBuffering=False
UseHardwareTL=True
UseHardwareVS=True
UseCubemaps=True
UseCompressedLightmaps=True
MaxPixelShaderVersion=255
UseVSync=True

I have no clue what the above means, or can do by changing them. Exept i read something about this in another post.
I have downloaded the 177 driver, but has not installed...maybe i will...

Rasa, I have tried disable one of the cores, didnt go any better.

My specs are:
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
Memory: 2048MB RAM
Hard Drive: 500 GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
Monitor: SyncMaster 206BW(Digital)
Sound Card: SB X-Fi Audio [E800]
Speakers/Headphones: Phillips 2/1 and Steelsound 5Hv2
Keyboard: Logitech G11
Mouse: Logitech VX 1000
Mouse Surface:
Operating System: Windows XP Professional

Tnx for your help so far.
But dont worry, like i said earlyer; i can now play the game. Its just that i dont see gore and bulletimpact

Yea, I'm guessing you're having the same problem. The 177 driver should (hopefully) fix it with your new game installation if you want to try it.

Yes the 177 driver did help me out. Everything works smoothly now.
No lag, and gore / bullet impact is there.

Thank you Rasa and Grishenko for helping me out.
