I have just finished D.F.C and REALLY ENJOYED IT, At no point was it unplayable . One or two areas were very lagging but most areas played fine . The strangest thing was that the lagging areas were small undemanding graphic areas like Zoe's hospital room in book 5 .NOW ..... The reason for putting this out  is that my average frame-rate was 12 , that's from the steam overlay and fraps . Never came across a game where you could have reasonably smooth play for only 9-15 fps and don't really understand it .


Anyone got any ideas why this should be so .  I spent a fare  amount of time trying to solve a problem that did not exist .(shame on me ) .


My laptop is rather basic for gaming.


Dell xps l501x

i5  cpu 2.5 ghz

geforce gt 420m

6 gig ram

Settings  .. medium .

When frametimes are stable, lower framerates are much more endurable. Still, 12FPS should feel quite sluggish on the controls. There, playing an adventure game makes the difference.

Thanks for the reply  .........  yes i am sure your quite right , its not a shooter . On Wolfenstein New Order i get 30 on medium and need it to keep smooth and stable , but in Europolis i can RUN around twisting and turning with no sense of loss of smoothness . But then people say that area uses cpu more than gpu , and although my gpu is running at 90 + the cpu is only running at the 50% mark . 

I just think its got to be a credit to the game to be able to play such a heavily graphic based game at such low frames

I can get 15 + if if i switch ssao down to low .
