Bad Performance Fix for Nvidia GPU's (Laptops, Nvidia Optimus)
Hey all, I was getting terrible performance yesterday after purchasing the game, which was weird because i played the cracked version at a LAN the day before and i knew i could get better performance.

I was getting like 20-30 FPS, with everything on lowest and 1366x768 resolution, now i can play with everything on medium and all the shadows and dynamic lighting off at 1600x900 resolution at a stable 60 FPS.

The Fix, this is a newer laptop with Nvidia Optimus Graphics, which Switches to integrated graphics to save on power. Because of this being a newer game, the Nvidia driver handles it as a normal application and launches it with integrated graphics instead of the discrete Nvidia GPU. You'll probably have Nvi

If you are experiencing this issue you can go to the Nvidia control panel and select the EXE, and choose it to run the NVidia GPU instead of the integrated GPU. Hope this helps.

1) Manage 3D settings
2) Program Settings
3) Add C:\Users\Josiah\Steam\steamapps\common\chivalrymedievalwarfare\Binaries\Win32\UDK.exe
4) Select the preferred graphics processor for this program.
