Was wondering if anyone has had a simular issue on a laptop. Its a optimus enabled laptop but has no option to disable it, meaning some old games are forced to use the iGPU instead of my GPU.

Is there a work around for this at all? Really wanted to give Mir a shot again but its off putting with the bad performance.

Mir2 is using my iGPU and im getting 12-20 fps in game. Performance is piss poor. Is there a work around to force GPU usage?

Don't open 2 new threads asking the same question. One is enough. I merged them.

Might try this with my new PC how do you get an accurate reading of if Mir is using the GPU and also the framerate.

Thanks

just turn debugging on in the client, then look at the fps with that option turned on / off - i'm sure it'll show you a difference.

You can just go into most GPU hardware and hard select a certain exe / app to always run off the gpu.

TinyXp BareBones + ACPI, i remember you linking me to TinyXP on MSN xD Everyone thought we was using speed hacks on oldskool 2.3
I remember smashing Chucky on Mir Revenge to bits when I found out about this and using VM for running Mir on single core, he had been doing it for ages dunno how I got faster than him but apparently I was skipping around the screen and he couldn't touch me :ROFLMAO:

xD ACPI, TinyXp BareBones, Single Core combo was a weird one, some people it would make very fast but it would make some people like ******* superman, Ben, Trance and Wond were all a fair bit faster than me even though i was running the same OS etc.

Was a madness wasn't it, I actually felt guilty because smashing people was so easy hahah, giving people kit back etc to balance out the guilt with the fun lool

It was just straight up as bad as cheats lol, somebody who wasn't ACPI'd back in 1.4-2.6 days just couldn't compete in pvp vs somebody who was, you could just walk around them and you'd be so far ahead, Kinda glad tweaking is gone now although it was fun it sucked really for some players.
