I'll take a look at that guide, thanks! PC, I'll be honest though, I've only tested on a non gaming laptop but in the past my other games have ran fine. To be more specific, 40-50% of the cpu is taken up by "engine" and another 30-40% by events.
They shoot every random(1,2) seconds at the moment. I have quite a few event groups that switch on/off when necessary so think I'm okay on that front.
Thanks for your help, hopefully someone else will be able to open the capx and tell me I'm being an idiot!
