    Is there any way to improve KAG Beta's performance? Because it sucks that I can only play TDM (because of small maps).

    Can you elaborate? Is your fps low? What are your settings? What hardware specs does your computer have?

    Have you updated your GPU drivers recently?

    Do you have the "fast graphics" setting checked off in options?

    What operating system/other specs does your computer have?


    We need these kind of things to be able to help you, as the issue is likely with your computer, either it's specs are too low, it's drivers are way out of date, some part of it has compatibility issues with KAG, etc...

    I've checked Fast Graphics and Kids Safe (it turns off blood particles). I've got Windows 7 Starter, 2x 1,6 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM. I don't know the GPU.

    Check your drivers and find out what the GPU is.

    To squeeze some performance out:
    • Make sure you have nothing else running at the same time as KAG (ESPECIALLY web browsers, close background processes eating more than ~5% RAM and any CPU as well)
    • Mark KAG as high priority in task manager (ctrl+shift+esc -> http://grab.by/uoY6 )
    • Make sure all drivers are up to date
    • Set windows theme to "classic" (the ugly grey one)
    Unfortunately we can't really support high performance on such a low spec machine, but you might be able to get at least a playable experience on 16p servers.

    I got 1.6GHz single core, 2GB RAM and really bad mobile integrated intel chipset. Windows 7 (no custom stuff for improvements), default settings (no fast graphice etc), running Chrome, Steam and xChat in the background and still have 30fps.

    Having twice as much RAM makes a big difference.

    Actually it's my mom's netbook, so I shouldn't type, that I don't want to change it, I'm just not allowed to do it...

    Also as KAG is mono-threaded change its affinity to CPU core 2, so other applications can eat CPU core 1 if they are mono-threaded

    Task manager, right click on KAG.exe process, set affinity, uncheck core 1

    Will it work if I will change it before pushing "Play" button? Because I can't minimize KAG.
