Sapien FPS lag?

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew why Sapien for H2V is running slow? I get about 5-20fps. I did set sapien to run on my GFX card instead of my integrated graphics card. Halo 2 itself gives me smooth 60fps, so I don't know what the deal is. I have a Nvidia 1060.

I'd like to also point out that I'm running Windows 10.

Thanks.

That's strange, I haven't really used Sapien.
Your 1060 should quite easily run Sapien, it might be Windows 10 or something.
Try joining the discord server and go to help and ask, people are always online there and a fair few of them use Sapien and other Halo 2 tools a lot.

Sorry.

Sapien wasn't correctly detecting if it can use a certain type of hardware acceleration, fixed that in h2codez by adding a configuration setting for enabling it.

Follow the link above,
I had issues with sapien, download the unlocked h2ek throw the files into the map editor directory, then dl h2codez throw the files in the map editor directory and run it and update and it should be good to go.


My Asus GTX 1060 3 gb pheonix had issues running sapien stock. But after running h2codez it runs smoothly and awesome. I had to run h2codez a few times for it to update and do it's patching thing. But it works great lol

When in sapien it'll show errors automaticall, click and hold middle mouse button in the game window and hit pgup middle mouse+pgup, the help guide says hm+middle mouse+pgup or something. But it does it with pgup+middle mouse. Then push 7 and then 7 again. It will hide errors and make it run better. Then hit pgup to hide the menu. Then go on your way to mess around with the pallets and adding things.

No need to use the old h2ek unlocked tools
All u require is are the stock/fresh H2EK tools and use the updater and all ready
