What is Exclusive Mode?
If you’ve been having FPS issues while playing
If your computer is closer to the minimum PC requirements, you may find the game performs better in Exclusive Mode. Aside from your PC specs, Exclusive Mode may also run better for users with a single monitor, rather than a dual or tri-monitor setup (according to community feedback). If you find your system hiccuping and responding poorly to Yooka-Laylee’s Exclusive Mode (or in general), you can try to give the process more breathing room. As long as you have enough computer know-how, of course.
If your system is having a hard time running Yooka-Laylee, feel free to open up your Task Manager and shut down any unnecessary processes that may be overloading your computer’s memory, CPU, and/or disk space. For example, Skype or Google Chrome. Note that it’s always a good rule of thumb to avoid meddling with processes whose names you’re unfamiliar with. For additional information on the subject, be sure to check out this feature on processes that are safe to shut down.
In the end, whether or not you choose to play Yooka-Laylee in Exclusive Mode will depend on your personal preferences and system specs. If you have optimal PC specs, you’ll likely experience no issues running the game normally in its native windowed mode. However, if you want to really improve the game’s FPS, run the game with less impact while streaming, or smooth out any issues your PC may have, be sure to opt for Exclusive Mode when playing Yooka-Laylee.
