I first downloaded week ago and frame rate was about 19-20fps and worked fine but suddenly, overnight, now frame rate 4 even at lowest settings possible. What do I do.


I certainly don't have a powerful computer but why did it work perfectly 2 days ago and now not at all!!!

I also noticed that before the frame drop my fans in my compute would run very fast but since the frame drop it dosent run as fast.

19-20fps is nowhere near perfectly.

If your fans ran very fast it most likely means high temperatures. Check the temperatures. When the hardware reach a critical temperature it slows down itself thus making the game run worse. So open your PC, clean the dust and try again if not helping then change thermal paste.

I got my frame rte up to 30fps with some setting changes, but now it crashes after 5 mins from starting up the flight??
