If your PC or laptop meets the minimum requirements for Fall Guys but you are having issues with performance, FPS, or are getting Error 14, then please check that your PC or laptop is using your dedicated graphics card.
Some laptops (and older/basic desktops) have more than one GPU: an integrated and a dedicated one. The integrated graphics chipset (often Intel) is built into the processor, and as well as this you may have have a separate stronger GPU, which in most cases is the dedicated one. (graphics card)
Power saving options on most laptop's can cause switching which GPU is used. A laptop will use the integrated graphics chipset for easier tasks and switch back to the powerful dedicated GPU when needed.
Therefore, if Fall Guys is running from the integrated GPU instead of the dedicated one, there will be lesser performance or issues running the game.
Switching to the dedicated Nvidia GPU
- Open the Nvidia Control Panel by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing Nvidia Control Panel from the menu.
- Navigate to 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings.
- Open the tab Program Settings and choose Fall Guys from the dropdown menu.
- Next, select the preferred graphics processor for this program from the second dropdown. Your Nvidia GPU should show as High performance Nvidia processor.
Save your changes. Your game should now run with the dedicated Nvidia GPU.
Switching to the dedicated AMD GPU
- Open Radeon Settings by right-clicking on an empty space on the desktop and choosing Radeon Settings from the menu.
- Navigate to Preferences > Additional Settings > Power > Switchable Graphics Application Settings.
- Select Fall Guys from the list of applications. If it is not in the list, click the Add Application button and select the *.exe-file of the game from the game's installation directory. This adds the game to the list and you'll be able to select it afterwards.
- In the column Graphics Settings, assign the High Performance profile to the game.
Save your changes. Your game should now run with the dedicated AMD GPU.
