The fix is simple. You just need to recompile the game from the source files and the fps is 60+. I saw a post about this so i thought id share it. I made a video on it.

Hello there

I've not viewed the vid yet, but how will recompiling the code be any different to wolfire doing it?
I would actually love to know, programming is not my forte :)

I'll test this tomorrow. If this work it's an amazing find. Kudos!

I think its due to not properly optimised shadows which is slowing down peoples game. I'm not entirely sure, it just makes it run faster, which i prefer.

The recent update seemed to fix my performance issues, at least for now.

So it was unoptimized shadows that was making it chug? I've just been calling it black magic.

I apoligize for necroing, but that video isn't available and im still having a lot of frame rate issues with this amazing game. Can somebody walk me through the process of "recompiling the code" as described in earlier posts? Any help would be greatly aprecciated. Thanks.

Not sure why this would help, except if you got a semi-slow graphics card, since stuff like dynamic shadows are disabled for the free version of unity, but here's how you do it:

First you need to get ahold of the source code, check out the game's main page: http://www.wolfire.com/receiver

Then, download the free version of Unity: http://unity3d.com/

Now, open the downloaded project (source that is) with unity, and build it.

Done!

I'm not sure how exactly to get the source code into Unity, how do?


EDIT: Never mind.

I suspect this is because you are compiling with Unity Standard which doesn't support shadows, so if the shadows are the bottleneck, it runs faster.

Okay, so I opened the project in Unity, but whenever I compile it I just get a blank screen. What am I missing? Should I be importing other stuff? I tried to open a scene or something and I messed with the Build Settings, but I had no luck. How do I get it to compile properly?

This happens to me, too.
