Lower the graphics and buy yourself a cooling pad, or at least keep your laptop elevated or something. Laptops in general will heat up especially in an unoptimized game like this. How long have you had this laptop? Have you opened it up and cleaned it recently? Have you replaced the thermal paste at all since you got it? If you feel you don't know how to open it up without damaging it then find the model of your laptop and look up a tutorial on how to open it and clean it without damaging anything or take it to someone or some place where they can clean your laptop.This game makes my laptop stupid hot, it even caused a shut down because of it. What's the best way to avoid this, just lower the graphics settings on startup?
- I'll try lowering the graphics next time.Lower the graphics and buy yourself a cooling pad, or at least keep your laptop elevated or something ... How long have you had this laptop? Have you opened it up and cleaned it recently?
Also check if your laptop has both an integrated and a dedicated GPU. It might be using the integrated one and making it heat up like crazy. If it's using the dedicated one, go to its control panel and check to see if the game is using maximum performance. There's tutorials that will tell you more, but this game shouldn't be using maximum performance because it's not optimized properly and might be forcing the GPU to run at 100% all the time when it doesn't need to but the main thing is, this game was never optimized well.- I'll try lowering the graphics next time.
- I actually bought an elevated cooling pad recently, it's been working great! Almost every game and program that caused the heat to rise and the fans to go at full power no longer do so. This game is the only exception so far. It gets real hot, real quickly!
- The laptop is fairly new, bought it only a handful of months ago. Haven't even looked at the underside to see how it opens, but it shouldn't be in (urgent) need of cleaning!
I had that exact same issue, had to go into the AppData folder and find the save files, then delete the folder they came in. Booted up the game and it re-installed just fine (minus the save of course)Anyone else having the issue where the game won't convert your old save file? I'm having issues and wondering if I should just delete the save itself.
