Hi everyone,

A few days ago I installed EECH (GOG edition) onto my laptop (Dell Inspiron 7577), and I expected it to handle the game easily (with a GTX 1060), but I still experienced some graphics lags.
A distinct example would be lagging of FLIR view (specifically when panning). In the mission selection screen the mouse pointer may lag a lot.
Did you experience similar issues?
The OS is Windows 10, maybe there are compatibility issues involved?

Have you tried the TnL setting in the eech.ini file?

Yes, I tried and it went rather unexpectedly - the framerate dropped to around 15. Without the setting it floats around 40 in cockpit view, and surprisingly, around 30 when viewing the map (when selecting a mission).
45 FPS is more or less comfortable, but still, I would expect more from my system.
-----------
Update: The game was running in Windows 98/Me compatibility mode, which I disabled and tried enabling TnL again. Now it runs smoothly at 60 FPS.

That's good you got it sorted.

Yes, thank you. I've seen another thread about a similar issue, and I think creating a dedicated thread for discussing game setup on modern systems is a good idea.

Im just returning after a short break from EECH - this thread really helped my performance for the game. Interestingly, for me, I enabled TnL to get better results.
