This is often the result of a multi-core or multi-processor machine.
Simply setting the affinity of Tribes 2 often solves this issue.

Option One: ImageCfg* (Courtesy 404notfound, Cat, CraigS)
  • Download ImageCfg from http://www.robpol86.com/files/imagecfg.exe
    Save to your GameData folder (Usually C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData)
  • Open a Command Prompt:
    • Start Menu -> Run -> "cmd", OK

    • Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
  • Change directory to GameData (cd C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData)

  • Execute imagecfg (imagecfg.exe -a 0x1 Tribes2.exe)

  • Run the game, enjoy
* Note: It has been reported that this may not work on 64-bit architectures.

Option Two: Affinity.exe (Courtesy: CraigS)
  • Download http://www.leweyg.com/download/Affinity.exe
    Save to your GameData folder (Usually C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData)
  • Create a new shortcut named play that goes to the Tribes2.exe (remember to add the -online flag)
    C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData\Tribes2.exe -online

  • Create a .bat file (or copy and edit one of the classic ones)
    Quote
    del /s /q *.dso
    start affinity.exe play.lnk
    cls
    exit
    (replace play.lnk with the name of the shortcut you created earlier)
  • Drop a shortcut to your .bat on the desktop and enjoy.

If after applying one of these fixes you still have a jittery game, create a .cs file in your autoexec folder (GameData/base/scripts/autoexec)
Quote
setPerfCounterEnable(0);
