It's a Celeron. Overheating issue?

Did you find those minimum specs on amanita/machinarium site? Or on the back of the box?

Of course the problem is not in the game, try uninstall/clean/reinstall video drivers


We tried that serveral times, even installing older driver versions. Nothing solves it.

I also noticed that this problem persists through all flash games, online and offline

Too bad the hardware acceleration work around didn't work for you!  Hopefully jst65's suggestion will help.
But also, to help the peeps here on the forum troubleshoot this issue with you, please post the specs of the machine you're having all these "flash game related problems" on.  Tell us the processor type, RAM, video card, etc....

Intel 1.7ghz
1024mb DDR
nVidia GeForce 6800 512 DDR

What is exactly your processor? Is it Intel Pentium 4 or Intel Celeron (Celeron has less cache)? In minimum specs there is Pentium 4 1.8 and it have twice as many cache as Pentium 1.7 so this may be the cause of lagging in higher resolutions. Also check how many space you have on your hard drive (some games would lag for me if I have less then half of my hard drive's memory free)  Smiley

It's an Intel Celeron. The weird thing is it doesn't matter which flash game or application it is. If it's flash it lags.

I looked at specs that ABoretz posted a few posts ago  Tongue

I know what you mean. I own Intel Pentium 4 3.2 and some flash games lags a lot on my computer, especially games with lots of objects, music, etc. Less demanding flash applications should work for you though. Have you tried playing some simple flash animation with few things? If it lags too, then it is not the fault of your hardware, but rather software.

Pretty much all flash lags for him. It did on his other computer as well, and the only thing transferred from that computer was his graphics card.

I know this is a pretty big bump but I have the same problem and I have been reading through and using all of these suggestions and Machinarium still runs painfully slow. I am using Linux Mint though, anymore ideas?

Hi. Try to play windowed instead of fullscreen. Wink
