Game laggy since installing RoM

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I've been running TS4 on this same Macbook Pro for years now, and performance has always been decent. I run it on 1440 resolution with settings all on High, and I usually get about 25-35 FPS.


Since Realm of Magic came out, my FPS has dropped to around 10-15, especially in Glimmerbrook and the Magic Realm.


Is this a bug? Is there anything I can do to fix it? I tried reducing the settings drastically, and it barely helped. With everything on Low, my FPS is still in the same range (10-20).


It's so slow and jittery and takes Sims so long to perform actions that the game is unplayable. Can anyone help?


Thank you Standard smile
