I beat Mother 3 once before with little to no issues. But now on my second play-thru, it seems that I can simply walk around and things get laggy. Even doing the simplest of tasks (entering combat, walking around, gandering through the menu, etc.) proves to be a chore and I'm forced to use the "Speed-Up" button constantly.
Here's what I've done so far -
1) Use all the Emulator features (to my knowledge) with little results.
2) Close out everything aside from Window's required things.
3) Run Anti-virus, defragment, and clear space.
4) And lastly, download the ROM from another location and patch it once more. Also run the game without the translation patch.
I feel my options are limited and I've no where else to turn. And before anyone answers, no, I have not changed my PC in any way. No hardware changes, or nothing like that.
My computer specs are....
Windows XP Service Pack 2 (Ver. 2002)
Dell Dimension 3000
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
2.79 GHz, 768 MB of RAM
