  1. Yeah, with all the hype for JW evolution I couldn't help but reinstall this old gem that did in fact run smoothly on my current pc about a year ago. But now it freezes for half a second every second when I run it, I tried compatibility in W7 and XP sp3 (which is what I had to do last time as well) and and the game doesn't seem to even remember my video settings (or rather, doesn't follow them).
    I should mention that after the fall creators update this happened to my screen all the time until I rolled back to a driver from 24/04/2017, which I why I haven't tried that. No other game old or recent has any problem of the kind (except one game that already had a similar problem but that hasn't changed with this developments and it's not nearly as constant).
    Any suggestions?

    AMD Radeon HD 8400 4077MB

    So, something changed over the last year. Most likely candidates are dust bunnies and thermal interface paste (heat). There are many fine videos on how-to on YouTube.
    If you have done that and still have an issue, I would DDU the video driver and try again. DDU is available as a download on this site.
    If none of the above worked, you may want to consider monitoring CPU and GPU during game play - even task manager performance tab would do. I rig a second monitor to watch.

    Another thought - defrag HDD.
