Lower The Graphic Settings In The Game

Navigate to the "Options" menu on either the title screen or the Inventory screen, then open the graphics settings and set the preset to "Lowest". If it runs without any issues, it's recommended to gradually raise the settings one level at a time until you achieve a configuration that allows for a more comfortable gameplay.

How To Lower The Settings

If the performance doesn't improve even on the 'Very Low' settings, you can try adjusting the 13 item settings shown in the image above to further lower them.

Change The World Custom Settings

Lowering the "spawn rate of Pal" and the "maximum number of drop items within the world" may improve performance by reducing the number of objects displayed on the screen. Take note that his setting can directly impact the gameplay itself.

Restart The Game/PC

Restarting the game or the PC may improve the situation. When changing settings, there are items that won't take effect until the game is restarted. Playing without restarting may result in increased heaviness, especially after making various changes. Therefore, always remember to restart after modifying any settings, particularly if the game feels sluggish.

During peak hours of high traffic, network speeds may slow down, and servers may experience increased load. Try checking the network speed, the server's service status, and restarting the router.

Multiplayer Requires High System Specifications

In Multiplayer, because there are more Players and Pals being rendered, the game may run more slowly compared to playing solo. Performance is more likely to be heavier than in playing solo. Take note that it may be necessary to reassess the graphic settings.

What To Do When Performance Remains Unchanged

Check The Recommended Specifications
