    Why is Space Invaders Slow?

    Advertisement



    I have tried downloading the space Invaders game twice and both times when activated it lags. I runs really really slow. Am I the only one with this problem. Is there a fix?

    Ycliff, it might be a memory issue. I would start by doing a battery pull reset. Then go into the Options/Applications and delete the programs you don't use such as many of the languages. Be careful not to delete applications you're not sure about because they may be important. Also, it's good practice to do a battery pull every week or so to keep memory fresh. I hope this helps.

    I know this is off topic, but I seen this message about pulling the battery every week or so. So I was wondering why! The post said about keeping the memory fresh, does it do anything else? Also one time I was on the phone with Nextel BB tech support and asked about pulling the battery and they said only do it as a last resort.
    Again sorry for going off topic....

    Battery pulls clear up memory.. I guess there are residual processes or threads that don't close when you kill certain applications. Pulling the battery clears the memory.

    Might be sloppy programming too.
