I'm having a rather peculiar problem with my Skyrim Cider Wrapper. I can play on Ultra settings at a medium size resolution (can't remember the number atm). I can stand still in the game and look at anything and have a really high framerate (not sure on the number but I'd say it's well above 30, probably in the 40s). However, when I move, I'll get a brief stutter every few seconds. When I look around, I get huge, half-second stutters constantly. I also get huge lag spikes when initiating combat (which is rather debilitating). I've tried messing with some .ini settings and playing at the lowest detail, but nothing has changed.
Im no expert but id say its the intel graphics 4000. I use a gtx660 2 gb dedicated graphics and it runs amazingly smooth. Also is the intel 4000 shared or dedicated graphics? That could be your problem but im not 100% sure
That's what I'm thinking too, but I just find it strange that combat will lag horribly sometimes and other times be perfectly fine. I don't know if it's shared or dedicated. How could I find out and/or change it?
Look up ur computer specs. Is it a laptop or desktop. Im pretty sure its shared and I don't think theres a way to change it. Also skyrim is massive so some parts may be easier on your system and some parts may not. If possible I would upgrade your graphics card but im not really sure how customizable apple is with there pc's.
Try running skyrim on the absolute minimum setings and see how that works
