The game is running slow
I hope somene here can help me. It's running kinda slow in may PC. I have a i3-3220 with 4 GB RAM and a GeForce 8400GS. I think with this specificatios the game should run smoothly.

Can someone recomenme a resolution/shaders/anti-aliasing etc configuration for my build?

Thanks you.

IMSHO you pro'lly need a better video card, the 2nd digit of the video card indicates how 'good' it is, the 1st number is the generation. A 6800 video card is a strong generation 6 card, and an 8400 is a low level generation 8 card.

That card is slow, and it is a low end 8 series as stated above.

There is no way it will run the game smoothly even at the lowest resolution and settings, unless you consider smooth too be 20-30fps at best. Even an Nvidia 5900XT is faster than that a 5 series card and a Nvidia 440 is rated faster a 4 series card.

You need to realise just because a card is a newer model does not make it faster than the older models unless it is the mid range or top end line basically.

I also need some help. I'm having the same problem (game runs too slowly), and apparently my video card is even worse. But I just want to make sure before I go buy a new one.

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4200
RAM: 4 GB

If I just get a new video card, will I have any problems running Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams?

Also, any suggestions? Should I stay with the Radeon HD series or go with something else? I'm not an HD gamer, so I don't need top-of-the-line hardware.

It see's the problem is, indeed, the video card. I don't know why this game is so demanding ins this aspect.

Anyway, I'm now playing it without shaders, shadows, antialiasing and in low resolution and is running OK and I'm enjoying it... but I really wanted to play it with max quality.

The game is indeed very demanding. You might not expect because it's seemingly just a cute little platformer (but consider, it's fully 3D, DirectX9/10 with changing landscapes and stuff.)

My gf's PC has a GeForce GTX460 but in our case the CPU (dual-core, 2,1GHz) is limiting. It gets occasionally slow. Officially the game requires a 2,8 GHz dual-core at least. 3,0 GHz quad-core is even recommended!
I strongly suggest to new buyers that they check the system requirements before buying this for an older PC!

I get around 14FPS on my rig (2.53GHz, 8GB Ram, NVidia 9400M, SSD, 1280x800) on level 1 (10FPS on the Xmas level)

width=1280
height=800
bits_per_pixel=32
refresh_rate=60
fullscreen=true
vsync=false
shader_quality=high
particle_quality=half_resolution
distortion=false
shadows=false
antialiasing=false
selected_dx=dx11
num_adapter=0
use_primary_device=true

It really is demanding :) Looking forward to when I have a new computer and can play this smoothly.

For anyone wondering, I have a GT 620. It is considered a very low-end modern GPU with a G3D score of 440 (the 8400GS above has a score of 115, while the Titan has an 8000+ score).

I get very decent framerate in game with some tweaking of the settings, but there is a slight moment of stutter when I begin levels (this is usually during the first five seconds when I make my first couple of jumps). After that, smooth sailing.

1366x768
75%
AA on
Medium shader quality
Shadow on
