Slowdown on my laptop

Hello,

I'm trying to play this on my laptop but after a little bit of play it slows down until it's unplayable, even with the graphical settings set to low.

My specs are:

64-bit processor, running Windows 10
Intel i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2801 Mhz 4 cores
32 Gigs Ram
It says I have two graphics cards, I guess that the beefier one is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050.

Any ideas?

GTX 1050? Yes. That is the dedicated graphics card and the one you should be telling the computer to use.

How do I make sure it's using the right one? I thought it would use it automatically

Probably varies depending on manufacturer; don't know because I don't use a laptop from gaming. A little looking on google leads me to believe you'll need to use your NVIDIA control panel.

Thanks I'll check it out. Hope this is the problem, it sounds like an easy fix. My machine's specs seem well sufficient to play it, so I don't understand what's going on.

That didn't fix it :-(
