Blastburn94 Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 I decided to install this game onto my laptop because the minimum system requirements were low enough, but it seems that the actual performance needed to run the game is much higher than even the stated recommended. I set every setting to the absolute lowest in-game, along with disabling V-Sync, and my FPS at the main menu averages at 36 - with a 720x480 resolution (the minimum I can choose). Keep in mind that my laptop is plugged in and has absolutely nothing running in the background. My graphics card driver's settings are also set to their lowest in hopes to increase FPS. All of my drivers are up to date. When I change just my resolution to my native default of 1920x1200, my FPS averages at 9. I understand that this is a giant increase in resolution (roughly 6.67 times the amount of pixels), but I don't have any other game that drops it's FPS a whole 75%. Just for reference, the game's minimum specifications are: Fobby[GEN]":29jvy5jd]Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista2.0+ GHz processor 2 GB system RAM SM3-compatible video card 4 GB free hard drive space The game's recommended system specifications are: Fobby[GEN]":29jvy5jd]Windows Vista 64 SP22.0+ GHz multi-core processor 4 GB system RAM NVIDIA 200 series or higher graphics card Plenty of HDD space My system specifications are: OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 @ 2.2 GHz RAM: 2x2 GB DDR2 333 MHz GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT (256 MB VRAM, 475 MHz Core, 950 MHz Shader, 800 MHz Memory, 128-bit, SM4, DX10) HDD: 120 GB, SATA I, 5400 RPM, 8 MB Cache (64 GB Free) Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200, 60 Hz, 32 bpp Average Idle Usage: <1% CPU Usage, <10 KBps HDD Usage, <25% RAM Usage, <35 Processes Running As you can see, I surpass all of the minimum system requirements, and all of the recommended requirements are met or surpassed, except for the graphics card. This is very confusing to me, given this data. If anyone could give me some assistance as to increasing my FPS or any other meaningful advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
