What is the best way to run Torchlight faster on Netbook, and which setting or mod can be used for this purpose?
I tested this years ago, on my Asus 1001PX. And while Runic has claimed that Torchlight would "run" on a Netbook, and even included a "Netbook mode" in the settings for the game, they have since admitted that their claim was exactly that it would run
on a Netbook - not that it would run very well, or that it would be playable.
And Torchlight lives up to that claim. It will run on a netbook. It will, however, not run very well, and certainly won't be playable - no matter what you do to it.
I've tried every combination of settings available, as well as a few mods, and there's nothing you can do to make it run with an acceptable framerate on a typical netbook like the Asus 1001PX.
Of course, there are much more powerful netbooks out there, that are really testing the limits of what a netbook is all about - moving closer to what you'd usually call a notebook or even a normal laptop. I'm sure you could find one among them that would run Torchlight at a reasonable framerate.
