That's strange. Maybe your drivers really don't have Optimus. Can you set it to use the Intel graphics? If you do that, does your FPS change at all?

Sorry I fell off of replying and trying to solve the problem. Is there information on how to COMPLETELY uninstall the game. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall it several times, but every time I reinstall, it keeps my settings. I want to try and get rid of everything MX Sim from my computer, so that I can get a fresh install on it and hopefully fix the problem. Thanks!

No, I have tried both windowed and fullscreen.

This should completely remove it:

1. Run "uninstall.exe" from the install folder.
2. Delete the install folder.
3. Delete "%localappdata%\MX Simulator".

The new snapshot sets some variables to disable Optimus so you might want to give that a try as well.

I completely uninstalled everything and redownloaded, but the /fpshist still shows that it's mostly 32 frames. Where do I find the variables to disable Optimus?

The last snapshot (2019-01-01-1436) sets them automatically.

I'm using the newest snapshot and not seeing any changes to the FPS. I'm very surprised that the complete reinstall with no mods didn't fix the problem.

That's disappointing. I was hoping the Optimus settings in the new snapshot would help for stuff like this.

I'd have been surprised if reinstalling the game made any difference. There's not a lot to the game. It's just one exe. The OS and drivers are much more complicated.
