I have always had FPS issues with ESO. I'm not very technologically literate when it comes to computer optimization in regards to game performance. I know Macs aren't meant for gaming, but that's my best option currently. I run that game on low settings, with things such as Shadows, Bloom, Grass, etc turned off & maximum particle systems/particle suppression systems at the lowest setting. SubSampling is at High while Textures is at Medium. I run the addons LUIextended (only the part changing the interface), KillCounter, and S'rendar. Anyways, I recently learned that I could significantly boost my in-game performance by switching to a 1024x640 resolution scale in my display options from the default 1440x900. This brought me from around 6-18 fps in average fights to around 15-35 fps. However, the past few days I've logged in, I've been around 6-12 fps in any combat situation even with the resolution changed, rendering the game generally unplayable for me.
I was wondering:
1) Have there been any recent changes that would impact my FPS in such a way?
2) Is there anything practical I can do with my computer in general to positively impact my game's performance in a meaningful way?
