I got Democracy 4 to play when I’m not home, so I’ve got a rather minimal laptop. It does fit into the minimal requirements, but I’m actually getting only 3 - 9 FPS. The UI also seems to freeze when I try to close some windows, but I think that it’s only because it takes about 10 seconds. So officially not frozen, just very slow.
I think that the game would be playable at 20+ FPS, but it’s a tall order to go from 3 to 20. What do you think would be possible?
Changing the resolution didn’t help much, so maybe there could be a “low performance mode” that would make some calculations less granular or precise so that the UI stays responsive. I’ve never played Democracy, so that was my first idea.
