View Full Version : Hitman Contracts PC MAJOR problem!

1st Dec 2012, 02:19
Hello everyone,

First of all, these are my PC specifications:
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTS 450
Processor: AMD Phenom™ II X4 840 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.2GHz
Memory: 3326MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium

I recently bought all three Hitman games ( all seperately & factory sealed; God I love Amazon xD ) but anyway I was able to finish both Silent Assassin & Blood Money without any problems on highest settings. Problems started when I installed Contracts. I can't navigate through main menu because it's too laggy ( mouse arrow is teleporting ). No matter what settings I will put ( very high or very low ) it's still unplayable because of the terrible lagging during gameplay.
Is Hitman Contracts one of this "bad console ports"? It's pretty weird for me as I can run Blood Money on highest settings without any problems (not mentioning that I can run games like The Witcher 2 or Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings without any issues). The game is 8 years old now & my PC is way ahead of the hardware that was available in 2004.

If anyone can help, I will be very grateful as Hitman Contracts is the best installment in the series for me.
PS. Yes, I have installed the patch & Yes, I tried to run the game in XP compatibility mode without success :(.
