Having problem playing the game with my SO. Info inside.

  1. Outcast

    Outcast Void-Bound Voyager

    Her specs:
    • Intel Core I5 - 4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz / 2.40 GHz
    • 6 GB RAM (5,89 GB usable)
    • 64x OS Windows 10
    • NVIDIA Geforce 840M *Driver updated to version 381.81 WHQL (Up2date)
    My specs (Running server at the same time):
    • Intel Core I5 CPU 650 @ 3.20 GHz / 3.20 GHz
    • 16 GB ram (15,9 GB Usable)
    • 64x OS Windows 10
    • AMD Radeon R7 200 Series

    I'm running the server fine, my character has zero lag, near perfect FPS (could not get FPS overlay with steam to see for myself).

    However she runs the game with 10-14 FPS as standard. She also runs the game with VSYNC turned off.

    Option wise we turned her display down to 1366x768 (so she could play it in fullscreen. Zoom level atX3. We don't want to turn it down to x4 (hard to see enemies).

    Her computer destroys the recommended settings, so what is the problem?

    • OS: Windows XP or later
    • Processor: Core i3
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Discrete GPU capable of directx 9.0c
    • DirectX: Version 9.0c
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 4 GB available space
    When a computer can handle the recommended settings, I would atleast think the game would run smoothly without having to fix stuff in the registery or with the Nvidia Control panel, is this game even optimized for nvidia users yet?!


    Tested her game under single player:

    On ship: +25fps
    On planet: 18-25 fps

    Tested her game multi player:

    On ship: 19-24 fps
    On planet: 10-14 fps

    ** We have tried this already **

    Resolving Compatibility Mode

    Nvidia Control Panel settings/Manage 3D settings

    Run Starbound.exe (both 32/64) as admin.

    Run Starbound.exe with Windows 7 Comp.
