View Full Version : How to improve performance?

12-19-2012, 02:57 AM

I just bought the game and somehow my laptop cannot run it very good. I have to put everything on low, turn shadows off and change the resolution to 1280 X 720 to get nearly 25 FPS.
I can play games like Diablo 3, Battlefield 3, Civ 5, XCOM and other games without problems.
My computer has:
Intel Core i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz with boost to 2.8 GHz
8 GB Ram
Nvidia GeForce GT 555M with 3GB ram

Is there anything I can do? Maybe some hidden options?
Would really love to play this game.

Hope someone can help me

Do you have the latest video card drivers and direct X? You should be getting 20-30 FPS on highest settings. Perhaps with Water on Medium.

Really not sure why your performance this low. Can you maybe attach your DX diag results?

ok, i found out what was wrong. I do not know why it happened but my laptop was using the on-board graphic card and not my nvidia card. Strange that my computer decided to do it that way. Now everything runs on high without problems. Thanks :)
