  1. Having watched most of that video (thanks by the way!) I notice the programme is very similar to the fan speed setting app that came with my computer. I've fiddled with it a little, but not too much as I didn't want to cause any damage.
  2. My case does get hot, but not as hot as my old laptop did. I do have a stand fan, but discovered the other day that it no longer works! It's on the online shopping list... Will those also increase the fan noise? My performance is great, in fact so far everything has run brilliantly on this laptop, it's just the fan noise that bothers me!
  3. Well I've done both of those things and made sure I run Wurm with my nice graphics card. That's brought the fan down to around 63-68% which is an improvement!
  4. I have a separate Nvidia graphics card.
  5. Thanks for the advice all! I've turned it down to 4, I'll see if that helps! Is there anything else I can try turning down? Unfortunately I need a laptop rather than a desktop, it's just not feasable to have one where I am. Why is that? I've just been running Ori and The Blind Forest which I thought was a much more graphically intense game, and the fans are considerably quieter when I run Wurm. I really don't understand it!
  6. I know heating up and fans working more are inevitable, but I'm a bit confused as to why Wurm makes my fans go so crazy. After playing just now for only a couple of minutes, my CPU temperature went to 71% and my fan was at 78%. Most of my graphics are set to medium, and my laptop is a brand new Median Erazer, bought a couple of weeks ago. This is my system information. These pictures show my graphics settings. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?
  7. Hooray! PM me here or in game.
  10. I hope you mean the thread and not MY ADORABLE PONEH
  11. Put in a bid and spam the request forums? ;D
  13. I'm never here, except to ask for more sheep. (Spotty ones please.) In my 5th year of playing.
  14. Honestly this affects me very little directly, I don't buy or sell silver and have never bought or sold an account, and have no intention of doing either. However I am a little confused about points that others have brought up, namely transferring silvers between alt accounts, or trading apparently large amounts of money for very little. I regularly buy referrals, so I pay 6.5s for a good number of woodscraps. Will I now have to account for that? Are PMs going to be read by devs or whoever to monitor why I'm paying so much money for a woodscrap? And what about trades for less tangible things, for example paying another player say, 5s for helping with a large digging project? Is someone going to come out of the woodwork and ask for an explanation? Or when my grumpy delivery alt comes back from delivering expensive items from another server, will I have to sell her my axe to give myself the money?
  15. Delivery can be arranged for a flat fee of 50c. Any server except pvp.
  16. Sure, if you want one!
  17. I knew it could happen. It was inevitable really. I have a foal called Pinkiepie. A cute little 5 speed gold girl, with longevity and disease resistance traits as a bonus! Want an infamous horse? Are you a closet brony? This is the girl for you! Bids start at the low low price of 50c. 10c increments.
  18. He'll be sorely missed by us all. He was always there, happy and cheerful. He was generous with his time and skills. There will always be a hole in our community where he was.
  19. The day before yesterday when I logged in, I noticed that a couple of my horses no longer had brands. I brand all animals bred by me as a matter of course, so this was odd. They were venerable animals I'd branded months ago. Later I discovered that some foals had also lost their brands, and two lambs that I had branded and named had their names and in one case their brands disappear too. I've never had this happen before so I'm stumped! On the advice of the help channel in game I'm posting here. I haven't resized or dropped my deed or made any other changes. What's up?
  20. I hate to complain, but the removing updates from WU really concerns me. Not as a player, I only dip in occasionally, but as a business decision. The game that players absolutely have to pay to play and (at least if my alliance is anything to go by) is becoming increasingly popular at the expense of WO, is now being abandoned by the developers? Mods are great, don't get me wrong, but IMHO there are some things that just have to be done by devs. If I was a regular WU player I'd be very upset right now. I want to see WO and WU continue and grow, but this seems to me to be a very short sighted decision. I sincerely hope I'm wrong. Also, we're getting spotty sheeps soon, right?
  21. You've reminded me - what I used to do to start up Wurm was to right click the icon and select to run it with my Nvidia card. I'd completely forgotten! Thank-you!
  22. I've come back after a while away, and I've noticed I'm getting very low fps. I've lowered some new settings as suggested in help, but the problem persists. I'm getting a maximum of 19fps while in my deed in north east Xan. I'm attaching my console log to see if that is of any use. Can anyone advise what I might try?
