Update both the GPU and sound drivers if they require additional updates besides the Windows update. The game will run smoothly and hopefully crash-free with updated drivers. Both Nvidia’s latest drivers and AMD’s latest drivers can be found on their official websites.

    Enable Game Mode and GPU Scheduling

    In order to increase Soulstice performance, you can also try enabling Game Mode on Windows 10 and 11. It will help in minimizing the background processes so that your Return to Monkey Island gets more FPS and better performance.

    You can do it by typing “Game Mode“ in Windows Search and selecting Game Mode settings. There will be an option to turn on the Game Mode.

    Furthermore, you can also enable Hardware Accelerated GPU scheduling to enhance Soulstice graphics performance.
