How to play on CPU instead of GPU

If your GPU is as bad as mine and you can barely play on it, you can try playing on your CPU instead, here are the steps you need to follow:

  • Open Internet Explorer, yes Internet Explorer.
  • Click the Tools icon in the upper-right corner, and then click Internet Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab, and then under Accelerated graphics, select the Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering check box.
  • Click Apply, and then click OK.
  • Restart your PC.
  • Play on Internet Explorer.

For me it is much less laggy on speed, but it started to lag on darkening, but my CPU is bad also. The CPU usage increased, so I believe it works.

This only works for Internet explorer, and I mean for the browser itself.

CF2 still runs in flash which by default has hardware acceleration (GPU use) enabled.

Does this have any impact on your CPU usage?

Ok, I've checked your option and the results are surprising.

The CPU usage is as follow:

  • IE GPU OFF and Flash GPU OFF - 69%
  • IE GPU OFF and Flash GPU ON - 46%
  • IE GPU ON and Flash GPU OFF - 9%
  • IE GPU ON and Flash GPU ON - 0%

I don't understand why is it so at all, but it is.
