Better Performance

Here's a tutorial on how to get the best performance out of the game!

  1. Adjust your game settings:

    a. Start by launching the game and accessing its settings menu (Start -> Options). b. Look for graphics or performance settings, and set the resolution, texture quality, and other options according to your hardware capabilities. If you have a powerful CPU and GPU, setting the options to High might help fully utilize your system, while a weaker system might require lower settings for better performance.

  2. Optimize Windows power settings:

    a. Right-click on the battery icon in the system tray (bottom right corner) and select "Power Options." b. In the Power Options window, choose the "High Performance" plan. If it's not visible, click on "Show additional plans" to reveal it. c. Close the window. This will ensure that your computer's power settings do not throttle your game performance.

  3. Update your graphics drivers:

    a. Visit your GPU manufacturer's website (NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel) and download the latest graphics drivers for your specific model. b. Install the drivers and restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

  4. Optimize your GPU settings:

    a. Open your GPU's control panel (NVIDIA Control Panel, AMD Radeon Settings, or Intel Graphics Control Panel). b. Locate the settings related to gaming or 3D applications, and adjust them for better performance. For example, you may want to enable "Prefer Maximum Performance" in the NVIDIA Control Panel or "High Performance" in AMD Radeon Settings.

  5. Disable unnecessary background processes:

    a. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager. b. Click on the "Processes" tab, and sort the list by CPU or memory usage. c. Carefully close any non-essential processes that are consuming significant resources.

  6. Adjust in-game settings:

    As mentioned earlier, setting the game options to High instead of Low can help fully utilize your CPU. This is particularly true for systems with powerful CPUs and GPUs, as running the game on low settings might cause the CPU to wait for the GPU, resulting in lower overall performance. Experiment with different settings to find the best balance between performance and visual quality for your specific hardware.

By following these steps, you can optimize your gaming experience and achieve the best possible performance based on your computer hardware. Remember that every game and system is different, so you may need to tweak these recommendations to match your unique setup.

Entropia is a One core CPU-based game with some quirks (and the drawbacks that come with being a One core CPU-based game). Although the performance in Entropia has been significantly improved, the older base code of the game prevents a massive overhaul. As a result, particularly in cities with many players, frame (FPS) drops may occur due to the Glow effects (SFX) that need to be loaded and rendered. This process consumes a lot of performance, as it is only handled by a single core of your CPU.

A One core CPU-based game like this can suffer from performance issues because it relies heavily on a single core of the processor to handle most of the game's tasks. This means that even if you have a multi-core processor, the game won't take full advantage of the additional cores, resulting in limited performance improvements. Consequently, players might experience slowdowns, especially in areas where there is a high concentration of players and visual effects, such as cities.

Otherwise, for some locations, you can permanently, temporarily, or partially hide players, pets, and glow effects in your in-game options to achieve more frames (FPS).

Additionally, you can use the keybinding Ctrl + P to toggle hiding and displaying players if you experience lag in crowded areas with many players.
