Solved: 8 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks ago black plague, extreme particles lag *please help*

So Yeh I am playing black plague for a while now
The problem is when I come near gas/smoke (particles I think)Huh
It starts to lag a lot

*spoiler warning*
When I tried to lock up the professor who needed a saw for his hand in the
Computer room, it was lagging all over the time in that room because of the smoke, also the fight with the worm was almost impossible


Ya know its the kind of lag where you move a second after you push the key


I have an Intel 965 chipset on a 2gb RAM laptop, I can play with more than 40fps and everything maxed out. Not without lag when I'm near gas/smoke

You still have not told me what graphics card this laptop has. This is important. I can see what gpu you have from the file HPL.log that I asked for you to attach. Most probably this is a graphic card driver issue.
