This week I have, amongst other things, been playing a newly released to Open Beta game "Crown of the Gods", a clone of a closed game I have lamented on these pages past "Lord of Ultima".
Immediately my impressions where the development team have done a good job, however, I soon ran into issues on my lower powered machines, especially the desktop PC in the office which is woefully underpowered.
Now, I run Chrome, and I wondered whether the tricks Google have under the hood could help, and you know they can...
If you open chrome and browse to the url: chrome://flags/
Then you will be greeted by a rather scary looking screen....
Do not worry, but, if you look down on the list you will see this ditty:
Another one further down also was strangely disabled for me:
Enabling this brought my game experience up into the solid 50+ fps range, even on this tired old machine.
And of course, whenever you change an option, you have to relaunch Chrome, which is provided in the page with a button at the bottom:
I'd recommend you change only one option at a time, and make a note what you have changed, because you may want to swap things back later.
