Hey there everyone

I loved HP2 as a kid and I've always wanted to speedrun it, and now that I've finished school now is the time!

However when I try to run the game on my laptop it is very very laggy and unplayable. Any ideas on how to make it run smother?

Kind Regards

Matt

Have you tried running in compatibility mode? If so, try running the game at lower resolutions in windowed mode. If you are running the game in windowed mode, you need to limit the FPS to 120 fps. You can do this with DXTory or Bandicam.

Thanks for your reply 🙂

How do I start the game in windowed mode?

Right click on the shortcut for the game, click properties, then at the end of Target add -window outside of the quotes

I've activated windowed mode, but no matter how hard I try I can't get the window to show in full window mode (if that makes sense)

I've attached some SH below to show you what I mean

Any help would be much appreciated 🙂

You can see it cuts off the bottom half of the screen, I try to drag to rearrange it and it does nothing.

You should try to optimize the resolution
