I've tried a ton of different things (updating drivers, reinstalling chrome, clearing cache/cookies) but nothing works so was hoping someone here could help. I don't play on the highest quality as there's no point, everything is low/off but just the vector is high.
I've played on Chrome since I started playing 15 months ago and it has been fine up until now. I get a message just above the game screen when the game is loaded saying poor performance? your video card may not be supported.
Before also, in the URL bar with Chrome I had to enable flash, but that went all of a sudden too. Which is nice, but I'd rather it back if it means no lag and logging in and out. ^.^ The little line to show where you're typing in chat has disappeared too and CPU usage spikes when I'm sitting idle at my compound and my computer make louder noises (fans I think) but if I open up alliance tab or bounty office it stops completely.
All other browsers work fine but I use 5 different ones so I don't have to keep logging in and out constantly to and from different accounts so it would be much appreciated if someone knew a fix.
when in chrome look at the top of the video tab of the in game settings and see what rendering method it says,
I'm guessing it'll say software rendered,
when you use other browsers, firefox for example, it will say hardware accelerated and play normally,
for some reason chrome is now rendering the graphics using software, i.e. the cpu instead of using hardware acceleration which would be your graphics chip if it's embedded on the mobo or your graphics/video card,
this is why your cpu fan is going mental,
lots of people are having the same issue,
it's as if chrome is treating all video as html5 even if it is delivered in a flash compatible format,
you're not having to enable flash in the address bar is a clue no one else has mentioned so far!
I don't think google gives a shit really, they've pretty much taken over the internet and increasingly dictate what can or can't be done,
they are the Borg, lower your shields and prepare to be assimilated, resistance is futile,
this is pretty much what FB Gameroom did a while back and made it unusable for most people,
FB weren't the slightest bit interested in rectifying it either,
welcome to the future!
Edit: just had an idea, you say you're not even being asked to enable flash anymore? has chrome removed flashplayer from itself?
could it be worth seeing if you have the PPAPI version of the flashplayer plugin applicable to chrome browsers installed independently on your pc?
maybe try downloading and installing flash whilst using chrome,
