There are a variety of things you can do to improve your FPS in games nowadays. Primarily, changing graphical settings while in-game can always give you huge boosts to performance at the cost of some graphical fidelity. But which settings specifically do you want to look for? This guide will help you optimize Super People better.
Keep Windows and your Drivers Updated
This is a basic tip, but one that’s worth keeping in mind. Make sure you keep both Windows and your GPU’s drivers updated. Updating Windows is fairly simple, you just have to launch Windows Update and follow the instructions. Generally, it should keep you up to date automatically. As for your GPU drivers, you can check your vendor’s website. Alternatively, Nvidia’s GeForce Experience and AMD’s Radeon Software should both notify you of any updates and download them.
Ensure Windows is Using your GPU
For this one, you first want to locate Super People’s install folder. To do this, just right click on the game in your Steam library, click on Manage and then click on Browse Local Files. This should open a folder with the game in it. Now click on the address bar and copy the address. Now, in your search bar you want to type “graphics” and click on “Graphics settings”.
In Graphics settings you want to make sure that hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling is On, if available. Then find “Graphics performance preference” and set it to desktop app. Now, click on the Browse button. A new window will pop up. You should just click on the address bar in this window and paste the address you copied before to go right to Super People’s folder. Now click on a file that starts with “BravoHotelClient-Win64”, which is the game’s executable. Click on add. Finally, you just have to scroll down, find “SUPER PEOPLE” in the list, click on Options and pick High Performance. Save your changes and you’re done.
This is primarily for laptops, as they sometimes default to using the weaker integrated graphics instead of a proper GPU, but it might help on desktops too.
Change Display Settings In-Game
Now you will want to launch the game. There are a variety of settings here, but we’ll mostly go over the ones that affect performance most.
You’ll want to make sure the game is set to display in Fullscreen, as this can give a performance boost. FPS limit should be set to 60fps for the lobby, but the Maximum Frame Rate Limit should preferably be set to unlimited.
Now you’ll want to set the overall graphics quality to at least Medium. This is going to depend on your PC however, but Medium is a pretty decent middle point. If you want higher FPS, you can set this lower. If, on the other hand, the game already runs well for you, you can set it to High for better graphics.
If you want to go into more detail, however, some of the settings affect performance more than others. These are the first individual settings you should try turning down to improve your FPS: Shadows, View Distance, Foliage, Effects, Shader, Anti-Aliasing and Post-Processing. You also want to disable Depth of Field entirely. This mostly means that Textures is the one setting that has very little impact on your performance. Also worth noting is that View Distance only affects objects and not other players, so there’s no disadvantage for lowering it.
Finally, there’s the Resolution Scaling options. Which one of these you can use is dependent on your GPU. For most GPUs, AMD FidelityFX SR is the only option. This scales your resolution dynamically to maintain better performance without completely sacrificing image quality.
You can play around with the setting, but for best performance you obviously want to set it to Ultra Performance. Newer Nvidia cards, however, also have Nvidia DLSS at their disposal. DLSS functions somewhat similar to FidelityFX, but it has much better performance. If your GPU can use it, you have no reason to keep this disabled.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide
Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!
Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms
Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.
While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.
Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.
Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.
Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.
You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.
Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.
Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.
In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.
Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.
Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
