FPS Halving Problem, need help
As someone already said, i'm really trying to like this game, since there is a lot quality to it. However i'm playin on a laptop and the game works fine for about 5 minutes and then starts going crazy. My fps drops from 45 to 25, and back every 15 seconds or so. It's unplayable. I tried literally everything to fix it, and yet it still keeps on going.
If there are any suggestions, i'd be happy to read em.
Thanks!

Sounds like a cooling problem on your side. Try to play at a cooler place or use some external cooling pad or similar stuff to keep your notebook better cooled.

As a gorge or Onos maybe but as anything else? No, its unplayable unless you want to be completely at a disadvantage. 60 fps is a minimum to do consistent.

I cleaned my lap top with high compression air pump, and it shines like new. :)) Anyway 25 is low and i find 40-50 playable. Thank guys!

I'd recommend you buy canned "air" (its not oxygen, its anr inert gas) from a computer store for next time. A regular pump that just blows plain air can cause static electricity that can fry electronics. Now your typical canned air won't be as compressed as what you used, but if you can open your laptop up that's what I'd recommend you use. And definitely make sure to check your temperatures every couple of months. Dust can collect in electronics very fast, and machines like laptops are especially prone to overheating.

I recommend OuchOfDeaths advise, but only if your laptop is out of warranty already, and it is very important to use indeed low compression cans. If they are high compressed the air coming out will be very cold and this can cause condensed water, which is naturally bad in electronics.
