Whatever the problem it isn't a 64 bit windows issue.
I have Win 7 Ultimate, 64 bit and the game runs fine.
So it should be something due to specific system configurations.
Of course it has to do with our specific system configurations. That's the case with almost all of these types of bugs. If this bug affected all people with Windows 7 64-bit, (as in, most people.), I find it hard to believe they wouldn't at some point have uncovered it during testing.So it should be something due to specific system configurations.
Exactly. The second post.second post
A while ago, isn't it?

GTX 580 (only 1.5gig though), i-980x, 12 gig memory, vsync on, 1920x1080. Using the beta driver for Skyrim from Nvidia.
I'll probably play the prolgue again tonight, I'll run Fraps then.
I have the exact same issue, and an ATI HD4870. I did notice my CPU runs at about 70% (what I expect from a game), but my GPU only reaches about 15-20% load. The final mission was nigh unplayable and I only reached about 8% GPU load.
I'm going to try updating my card's drivers, I will let you know.
This is a pretty massive issue, though still not as bad as Stronghold 3 was at launch. God.
The game's 3D Engine seems to be capped at 30 fps
The lowest I ever got on the Battle Map is 24, most of the time it is 28-31 (according to Fraps).
The Campaign Map is near constant 31 fps
I think I have a (hopefully temporary) solution to this performance issue.
I made two simple changes to my king arthur 2 .exe file. I right clicked on this file, selected properties and under the compatibility tab I did the following:
1) I checked the box to run the program in compatibility mode, and selected windows xp (service pack 3) and;
2) I ticked the box down the bottom to run the program as an administrator.
It's that simple.
Previously, I was unable to play any battles in this game as the fps was something horribly low. But after making the changes I just played a battle with a decent fps. It wasn't perfect, but it was alot better.
I hope it works for the rest of you.
After some testing it appears that all I have to do to improve my game's performance is right click on the king arthur 2 .exe file in the install folder and select 'run as administrator'.

This does not solve the problem for me. This is usually one of thefirst things I try if I have problems. But glad it works for you.
The patch that came today didn't solve it too.
That is interesting - could the others provide us some feedback about this as well?
If that doesn't help, please do the following:
Go to the game main folder (Usually it is C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\kingarthurii\), run KingArthurII_AutoSetup.exe
After this, run the game and create a screenshot (hit Ctrl+Space, screenshot will be stored in the game main folder) about the Graphical settings screen (in the game open the Options menu/Videos/Advanced Stettings).
Upload it anywhere and share the link here or simply send us the screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org together with your DxDiag attached. If you don't mind, it would be nice too if you included your Forum username in the email as well.
Thanks for your help.

Note that it set my resolution to 1366x768 automatically.. even though I have native resolution 1920x1080. The game runs very fluent like this but obviously that's not how I want to play it... generally don't misunderstand that the game is unplayable or something. It's just that the performance is absymal especially as this is not really a game with great graphics...
I noticed some improvements, as it in runs better now after the patch. There is still some tweaks necessary though as there are still minor lags on the campaign map.
I have sent a screenshot with all relevant information to your support email address.
Thanks Kate for your attention in this matter for all of us.
There's no fps cap, on our best rigs in the dev office we have around 50-60 fps both in battles and in the campaign map.
I see. Thanks for the clearification
Not sure why the highest I seen is a constant 31 fps. Will experiment when I get home.
Having just re-installed it, I noticed some slight improvements. Nowhere near what anyone would consider acceptable, but still - improvements. I'm not sure if it was the small patch, or me forcing the game to run in "Administrator"-mode, as suggested, that caused it, though.
I did what "Neocore_Kate" suggested, and couldn't help but notice that the game, when launched from the "AutoSetup"-program, defaulted me to run in "DX9"-mode, with some settings turned off, and several of the graphics-sliders not fully maxed-out, for some reason. Less than awesome.
I will send the screenshot and DXDiag to the email address suggested, along with my forum username. If you decide to reply to me, personally, I suggest you just as well do so in this thread.
