HOW TO FIX LAGGING IN Stranded: Alien Dawn

GET RID OF JUNK FILES

  • Junk files don’t contribute to anything and unnecessarily consume space on your disk. There are three ways to approach this issue. They are:

 

 

Deleting Temporary Files

  • Press Windows + R > Type prefetch > Remove junk files. Not all files may be deleted, but that’s alright. We have other processes to deal with them.

 

  • Press Windows + R > Type %temp% > Delete all temporary and junk files on your system.

 

 

Disk Cleanup

  • Press the Windows key and type disk cleanup.

 

  • Choose your drive, check all boxes, and click ok.

 

 

Defragmentation

  • Press the Windows key and type defragmentation.

 

  • Check which of your drives are fragmented. Select it and choose defrag & optimize.

 

 

UPGRADING STORAGE

  • If you’re still using an HDD, consider upgrading to an SSD. it’s a lot faster and will quickly resolve the lagging issues.

 

  • While you’re upgrading the storage, consider upgrading your RAM as well. Although the minimum requirement for Stranded: Alien Dawn is 8 GB, having 16 GB of RAM onboard is a much smoother experience, with significantly less lag.

 

 

MAINTAINING A COOLER SYSTEM

An overheated laptop/desktop leads to thermal throttling, which drastically affects your device’s overall performance. Here are a few things you can do to maintain a consistent performance.

 

  • Clean up your device – Whether it’s a laptop or desktop, clean it at least once every month. Most people clean their desktops by opening them up. But unless you want to void the warranty on your laptop, tidy up the vents using a small blower.

 

  • Avoid your lap – Don’t keep your laptop on your lap because it blocks up the vents, causing the internal components to overheat.

 

  • Get a cooling platform – By placing your laptop on a cooling platform, you can reduce the overall temperature by 3-5 degrees. If you get a more efficient cooling pad, temperatures can be reduced further by 8-9 degrees.

 

 

USE FULLSCREEN MODE

Most games allow you to play in fullscreen, windowed, or borderless windowed modes. For maximum performance, you should choose fullscreen.

 

This is because apps and games running in this mode have complete control over the screen output. While borderless windowed might be more convenient, the game doesn’t have that display exclusivity in this mode and may thus dip in performance slightly.
