Hi there awesome Duelyst community!
Duelyst is my favorite game but when I play it my laptop gets crazy hot.
I play all sorts of what I would have guessed was more graphically demanding games with no problems at all. I know there is a lot of fancy special effects to Duelyst’s 2.5D (?) action but even with all the settings on the lowest I feel like my laptop is at risk of overheating components. I know there is a killswitch system in place in most computers to auto shutdown if the heat gets above a certain temperature. But it might not account for daily overheating just before killswitch level.
Ah anyway, just wondering if anyone knows why this happens with Duelyst (out of pure lust for knowledge).
And secondly if anyone has any tips on things I can do/buy to help keep my computer cool while playing Duelyst? …or if I should just give up Duelyst until I can afford a desktop computer in order to ensure the survival of my laptop?
(Laptop specs if they have any relevance: (Not a custom gaming laptop by any stretch but does the job for most games)
CPU = intel i5-3320M (2.6GHz,2.6GHz)
RAM = 8GB
OS = 64bit Windows 7
HDD = 160GB (less than half full))
Love you guys!
