    I've run into similar issues on older games, usually where the CPU is simply processing things far too fast for the game engine.

    I don't know if this is the issue you're experiencing but try to limit the frame rate using software such as MSI Afterburner or NVidia GeForce Control Panel/Experience.

    Please report back to let me know if it makes a difference.

    So i took a different approach to your advice and looked in my control panel, found that VSync was forced on. I'm guessing since bridge commander doesn't have a VSync option that it wasn't designed to sync up the frames to the monitor. So I turned it off. Not like you're gonna get horrible screen tear playing this anywho.

    And now it works. I should've looked into this sooner, but nevertheless I really appreciate the help. you guys should totally add this to your installation instructions. vsync seems so harmless even in older games that people probably never consider it a factor.

    Thanks for getting back to us stibbymicto, and I'm glad to hear you've resolved your issue!

    VSync is personally not something I'd recommend enabling system-wide anyway as I've know it to cause input lag, and only enable it on a case-by-case basis for each game if I experience tearing with it.
