Is the game badly optimized?
Hi, Im playing atm on a laptop with an i3, 4gb RAM and intel hd graphics which goes up to 1775 mb of memory.

I can basicaly play games like guild wars 2, sf4 or CSS without any big FPS trouble, but when I bought this game the other day I was really surprise of how badly works for me, playing its like being underwater.

Another thing to mention is that changing the resolution doesnt seem to change anything, it can either be max resolution, minimun, windowed mode, full screen, it doesnt matter, it stays the same, not a bit better, not even a bit worse if I increase the resolution.

I dont know but It just doesnt make any sense. Of course I keep the background graphics at without the animations and the frame rate fixed. Seriously I've tried already so many things I dont know what to do.

Ive spent the whole day today trying to fix the problem but I've given up, I dont know if any dev or whoever will read this but yea, im pretty upset now that I cant play this :-/

Any help will be appreciated.

This is the first KOF game to be ported to PC.

You're probably right that it's poorly optimized.

It's not very laptop friendly, no.

Can you please give us some more details on your laptop? What version of Windows are you running and is it fully updated? Which i3 processor? Have you updated the graphics drivers?
Ok here you go:

acer aspire 5733
Intel Core i3-370M

Driver Version:
Operating System: Windows 7 Service Pack 1(6.1.7601)
DirectX* Version: 10.1
Physical Memory: 3766 MB
Minimum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
Maximum Graphics Memory: 1755 MB
Graphics Memory in Use: 97 MB
Processor: Intel64 Family 6 Model 37 Stepping 5
Processor Speed: 2394 MHz

4GB DDR3 Memory RAM

The graphic drivers are updated, not so sure about the windows.

I dont think anyone should bother tbh, I have already tried anything posible in the last 3 days and nothing will do. I Guess this game is just like Magicka, the developers just didnt bother to optimise the game for integrated graphic cards (hence affecting laptops like mine). Its ridiculous cause as I said in the OP I can run games which consume a hell of a lot more than this one. As a matter of fact, I have noticed when I was trying stuff the other day that the game itself would consume less memory than other stuff I would be running at the same time (which werent games btw.)
