Hey guys I need a little advice regarding the Framerate issue
I used to play this game gloriously on a P4 and my current pc following specs:
Dual Core 3.0ghz
2 gig ram
Radeon HD3850

Now i decided to replay the game and it's having the framerate issue.

I have tried most of the FAQ posts here but none helped
Reduced graphics to nothing, not working
Removed USB keybaord, mouse, controller, not working
Reduced Sound Acceleration, not working.

If I need to post the Dxdiag specs I'll post them on ur demand.

I am REALLY frustrated now coz K&L has been one of my top favorite games alongside hitman. A reply would most defenatly be appreciated.

Edit: I also formatted the pc to clean up some stuff... still no luck

Same for me...

One guy on Steam forums stated that going back to 8.12 Catalyst drivers solved his framerate issues.

My problem is : my ATI Radeon HD4890 doesn't work with v8.12.
I tried 9.7 and 9.8 but it doesn't help

Is there anyone with a 4890 who has no framerate issues ?

THANKS SOOO MUCH! WORKED LIKE A CHARM!!! (for me :whistle:)

This should be stickied or placed with a sticky.
I think the prob is the Graphics drivers. My guess would be:

Install the drivers of your graphics card as when Kane and lynch was released
i.e. for ATI Radeon - V 8.12
Nvidia no idea..

Ok I just found a driver for my Radeon HD4890 which does not make K&L lags : v9.4

v9.7 and v9.8 are not good while playing K&L

I guess 1 solution for this issue is shuffle through old Drivers till you find one that works?

Hey thanks! Rolling back my video card driver fixed my fps issues with Kane & Lynch.

Someone should sticky this.

I have a Radeon HD 4600 and I tried updating and rolling back my drivers from 8.2 to the most recent (Feb 2010).

Doing that and everything the initial poster had done does nothing.

It's a shame they didn't tell people Radeon HD cards don't run the little game.
