Basically you are trying to play a high end graphics game on a laptop without enough graphics.....
Run it ON LOW...
All the best Brett
I just ran it to test it out and I put it on high just for the hell of it and was getting 35-40fps, only thing turned down was Shadow Detail and I was running it at 1600 by 900. When I lowered the resolution it jumped up to 50fps give or take. I was using fraps to check the FPS, which I've heard hits performance a bit, so I'll try the console command.
Thanks for the answers.
anything over 30 is playable 60 is the ideal minimum but if you can get more than 30 then you can increase the details, dont bother with the hd pack just get the 1.9 patch and if you want to add the dx11 patch then do so. try for medium first if thats to high turn down the water and shadows first then effects then everything else.
I downloaded it via Steam so do I still need to download the patch via a website or anything like that?
