Hi, everyone -
I'm starting here in case I can avoid bothering Red Thread support.
I'm late to playing the game because of work, but now that I have downloaded it (just a couple of days ago, 17 Dec 14 I think), I notice that the game is very very choppy. I set visual quality to low and resolution to minimum (1280x720), and restarted and right from the opening sequence, it continues to be very choppy.
I know my laptop is getting old and is close to the minimum system requirements, but it does meet and in some places exceed them. But right now "minimum" doesn't seem to be good enough to actually play the game with even a barely reasonable frame rate (I don't know how to measure FPS but it seems well under 10). Here are my specs:
OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)
Processor: Intel Core i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53GHz
Memory: 4.00 GB (3.80 GB usable) - though I'm also seeing 1696 MB listed for "total available graphics memory"
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics
DirectX: Version 11 - though interestingly it's listing as DirectX 10 under "Performance Information and Tools"
Hard Drive: 45/75 GB free on C: and D: respectively (the game is installed on C:)
Sound Card: Yes
Oh, and my power settings are set to "high performance" so that's not the issue.
Any thoughts? Looking forward to playing it as soon as I can get this resolved.
Thanks in advance,
