Due to We Shall Wake being a small indie game, Nvidia has not predefined We Shall Wake to out of the box use the Nvidia GPU on laptops that feature Nvidia Optimus (laptops that have both an Intel GPU and an Nvidia GPU enabled). Using the Intel GPU can lead to very poor performance and in some cases even cause the game to not run properly due to out-of-date Intel drivers. For demo 7, it is strongly recommended that you manually configure your computer to use your Nvidia GPU for We Shall Wake. This can be done through these simple steps in 5 minutes. This tutorial assumes that you have already installed and updated We Shall Wake to the latest version.
1. Open up the Nvidia Control Panel (easiest by searching in the start menu). 2. Click on "Manage 3D settings". 3. Go to the "Program Settings" tab. 4. Click the "Add" button. 5. Click "Browse...". 6. Navigate to the folder you installed the launcher to. In there, there is a folder called "jre", in which there is a folder called "bin". In "bin", select the file called "java.exe". Do NOT select "javaw.exe". Do NOT select "WSW Launcher.exe". Click Open. The 3D settings profile for java.exe should now be active. 7. In the drop-down menu under "Select the preferred graphics processor for this program", choose "High-performance NVIDIA processor".
