Q&A
Q: Can't find the appdata folder?
A: Look for the section on this guide on how to unhide folders

Q: Why does my game look so weird?!
A: If you followed the full guide shadows, antialiasing, and post processing were disabled. Meaning that the game will look kind of bad but at the same time your FPS will rise. The game is not currently very well optimized, I am sure sooner or later they will fix all of our FPS issues.

For Linux users, the file can be found at ~/.config/Epic/TheCulling/Saved/Config/LinuxClient and can be opened with any text editor.

Getting old for sure not, overheating might be possible

@Dante It could be that your comp is getting old, but most likely, it might be overheating
