I was hoping to come back and play a little on a MacBook Pro 2018 (i7, 16 GB Ram, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655). The game looks and runs great, even with high settings (i.e., smooth and responsive). However, after about 2-3 minutes the MacBook Pro heats up so much that the fans all max out and within 10 minutes the battery begins to drain when plugged in. Charger is the standard Apple issued charger and I’ve experienced no other issues with this machine. This happens even when just sitting in the station. I’ve spent some time searching for some sort of explanation, but have yet to find one. I get essentially the same results with all of the graphics settings turned to minimum/disabled settings.
I’ve tried using both the 32-bit and 64-bit clients. If anyone has experienced this type of issue I’d love to know if you’ve managed to fix it. Thanks in advance.
