Had this pinned in the Steam Tech support page for almost a year. Had a post here but it is buried. Figured I would post it since it seems to still be useful.
Turn off Nvidias Experience, AMDs Gaming Evolved, or any other overlay software you have running. They are causing big problems with the game.
If you have optimized the game with these clients, you will be required to reload the game. Do not optimize the game with either piece of software. If you have done this, reinstall the game after removing it completely.
You also may need to completely delete either program for this to work.
This is for laptops with dual graphics, mainly considering Intel onboard graphicshttp://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id- ... s-amd.html
Another choice (instead of infraworks, use LiF)https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/ ... Works.html
For FPS issues
limit the drawing distance of the ACTUAL island, to do this u need to go to
Steam\SteamApps\common\Life is Feudal Your Own\scripts\client
and open cm_environment.cs
visibleDistance = "10000";
and set it to 200-500, depends on how u want it, i'm setting mine to 200 for more fps but i'm limiting my vision, 500 should be more than enough for good vision, also set the ingame vision bars to the same number too. u can do it from
Steam\SteamApps\common\Life is Feudal Your Own\data
$pref::TS::renderingDistanceBig = "200";
$pref::TS::renderingDistanceHuge = "200";
$pref::TS::renderingDistanceSmall = "200";
also this is known but i'm still gonna write it here, in the same file prefs.cs
$pref::Shadows::disable = "1";
$pref::Video::antiAliasing = "0";
$pref::Water::disableTrueReflections = "1";
$pref::windEffectRadius = "0"; <<(no idea if it does anything i just changed it)
from 1-5 fps while moving camera i went to 30-50.
go to game list, go to properties for LiF, go to beta, enable DX9 version... if that works, either your video card does not support DX11 or you have an on board video card that is taking over. See fix 2
Update. For some players our game does not start AT ALL. Actually that is Steam's fault, because it does not install C++ redistr properly. You should navigate to game folder and manually launch:
...common\Life is Feudal Your Own\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2013\vcredist_x86.exe
...common\Life is Feudal Your Own\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2010\vcredist_x86.exe
...common\Life is Feudal Your Own\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2008\vcredist_x86.exe
Latest windows update has been a problem for a couple people... Try rolling back to previous
Disable all programs running, including your antivirus. If that works, disable them one at a time and see what is blocking you.
For Performance issues
Unpark your CPU cores, google it (Intel problem mainly)
