Thread: Overheating + Slow Alt-Tab fix

    Default Overheating + Slow Alt-Tab fix

    'Anyone else have StarCraft II try to melt their hardware? Blizzard admits that it's a known issue and has a fix for you.

    Apparently, the game's menu screens aren't framerate-limited. This means that when there's nothing else going on, your graphics hardware renders the bejeezus out of those screens, causing nasty overheating problems. The fix is easy, requiring players to add the following lines to your "Documents\StarCraft II\variables.txt" file (nice catch, commenter LegolElf):


    frameratecapglue=30
    frameratecap=60

    Good to know. Personally I would have appreciated a heads-up before my video card fried, but maybe this can save someone else from the hassle I've been dealing with since yesterday afternoon.

    This made it so I could alt-tab and load quickly just like in the old beta days, and my computer no longer sounds like it's grinding itself to death!
