- From here, navigate to the MKW.exe. Typically located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\KW2 Battles\KW2B.exe Select it, and open.

Oh, thats why i get so low fps, i got gtx 960 and in 1st mission campaign i got like 4-10 fps
i was wondering, does orcs are allways on map? cus a large amount of them can help lagging, or are they spawning at time of invasion?
the game has a serious loading issus stating video you just have to let it sit till it figers out what its doing also ones thats done enter a name would be simple if it didnt auto fill a file name from my HHD for some reason.
sorry was going to edit this sooner havent had any major probs for a while i like this game good for killing time :P

Dual display also increases crashes, so with me what helped a lot is to disable one screen & use only one screen.

Also check your average cpu/gpu temperature is not too high, less then 75 degrees should be fine.

I used two server fans blowing into my Y50 laptop & the temp average while gaming is 65 degrees

List updated with the fix for the heavy lag on NVIDIA card systems (chances are there`s is a second integrated video card, that windows is trying to get KW2B to run on)

Kw2b.exe Norton keeps blocking the file saying it has a virus ????

This is a false positive, please add KW2B.exe to the list of exceptions.
