Not a Bug: FoE very tough on the Hardware


I have two computers:
- Laptop with an Intel Pentium Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10 GHz and 4 GB Ram, Windows 7 @ 32 bit
- PC with an AMD Athlon II X4 640 CPU @ 3.00 GHz and 8 GB Ram, Windows 7 @ 64 bit

Both machines are very silent (I love that!), but as soon as I fire up FoE, after a few minutes CPU temperatures rise from about 39 degrees C to ~55 degrees C and the fans start running, thus making noise (I hate that!). FoE is the only app I use on my PC that heats up the machines, not even playback of HD movies comes close.

IMHO, it's not a graphics card issue as it's only the CPU that gets hot.
Is there anything I can tweak in Adobe's flash player to get the temperatures down or is this down to the coding of the game?

meh, you can't use the "degree" symbol (that small zero located left of the 1 on a QWERTZ layout keyboard) in this forum.......


Like for me i play with mozilla firefox when i launch the game my process start at 100 000K after one hour connected it up to 1.000.000K and takes nearly 2g of ram, ( i have an acer aspire 7750G) so i refresh sometimes the game to avoid that.
(saw that yesterday but was thinking it comes from my computer)

Due to the graphics the adobe flash player uses a high amount of CPU. We may try to optimize this in the future, but currently this issue is simply a part of playing FoE.
