One Punch Man A Hero Nobody Knows – How to fix lag, fps drops, crashing and stuttering

One Punch Man A Hero Nobody Knows lag, fps drops, crashing and stuttering fix – One-Punch Man A Hero Nobody Knows is a fighting video game developed by by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is obviously based on the manga series One-Punch Man.

OPM A Here Nobody Knows is a 3D arena fighting game in which players get to battle using teams of three characters from the One-Punch Man universe. The game features a unique “Hero Arrival” mechanic surrounding the main protagonist of the OPM series, Saitama.

As expected, Saitama is invincible to everyone except himself, and is so powerful that he can defeat anyone except himself in one hit. But there is a catch here. If he is selected, he is always late to the fight, so he is not available for the first part of the fight, requiring the player to survive with only a two-character team until he gets there.

Certain moves and techniques can reduce the amount of time until Saitama arrives. If two Saitamas fight, they can deal damage to each other, but they will not flinch.

Saitama can be defeated but only at the hands of another Saitama. He will then run off to go do something else instead of falling down. The game also has a “Dream Version” of Saitama, who wears pajamas and has his powers drastically reduced, so he fights like a normal character.

Now that we are done with the basic description of the game, lets talk about the performance of the game on the PC platform. Most of the Bandai Namco titles have been well optimized till date. The Dragon Ball Z games are a good example. But that doesn’t mean this game is perfect.

But it looks like a lot of people are facing some performance issues here and there while playing this game. Players have already started reporting about issues like, lag, fps drops, random crashes, stuttering and few bugs. Therefore, we decided to come up with a performance guide that will tell you about all the simple and basic steps, which might help you overcome all the performance issues.
