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.
