Are there any mods or any config files I can edit to reduce the minimum allowed graphic settings. I have a very low end laptop for the next 4 months cause I'm away at college and can't play properly without it going from 15 fps to 2 fps every 10 seconds.

I have installed the OMC modpack but I don't know how to use it and the only other I know of for this kind of thing doesn't work. 

Any help would be appreciated.

OMC mod pack comes with a launcher. Do not select any of the options near the top. Down near the bottom there are a series of options that turn stuff off to help fps. But the modpack itself can use resources.

 

Best bet is to open the game and then open the Settings. Untick all the options, and put the sliders as near to zero as you can (really this is what the mods actually do). So turn off stuff like shadows, effects under tanks, water etc.

 

Make sure the laptop graphics drivers are up to date. It WoT is loading from a physical hard drive try and empty and reformat it. If the laptop has a very small amount of RAM consider increasing virtual RAM allocated from the hard drive. Clean out any bloatwear the manufacturer may have put on the laptop. Scan and delete any viruses or suspicious items from the registry. Generally try and tune the laptop up to get the most out of it.

there are modpacks  for stuff like that  thought the game might turn really ugly and depending on what is removed it might be considered as cheat

 

your best course might be to switch to old renderer  go with minimum settings  and perhaps some reduced resolution like 800x600 in window mode

 

depending on what you use from omc mod pack ( didnt they changed its name?) it might reduce your fps by 20-30

How low end are we speaking? Have you tried turning EVERY slider to the minimum use the lowest res and then turn the 3d scale to lowest too, game will look like a N64 game but it might work if you havent that yet.

I noticed on some occasions when the pc is overloaded that the game naturally reduces its pixel count to almost MineCraft levels of pixels lol. I tried a few games on a laptop before and it was a horror show so my advice to you would be to borrow or just pick up a cheap 2nd hand pc online. Believe me there is no point even trying to make it work with lower settings than what's possible, even if it runs at a reasonably acceptable frame rate, the little tiny screen coupled with the big boxy pixels won't be much fun, especially since you will be fighting players with much better settings that will eat you alive.

There are mods that reduce details even further than the ingame settings can. Some of the ones in the omc modpack does iirc.

Normally mods reduce your performance so don't get anything else from the modpack.

 

Removing foliage is a cheat so don't get any mod that does that.

Hm, not what you'll want to hear, but perhaps you should take a break - for the sake of both other players and yourself (being "at college"; you will have enough to keep you busy without gaming (girls, beer, work))....

Technically it would look like a Saturn/Playstation game as the N64 wouldn't let you turn the AA off XD

This, in the setting you can change to the old engine to make it even more basic and low end. That even runs "fine" on my dual core AMD 64 with an high end AGP card. I say fine. It can do 20 to 30 in a training room with just to on the lowest of low settings. But barely gets above 20 often in replays. Usually sticks to 15 to 18.

Why the heck would you waste your time playing the game with those settings?
I'd either buy a proper laptop or simply do something else.

Wow.. Just.. Wow. 28fps with those settings really isn't far off of calculator levels.

That will be the adaptive resolution slider.

 

Turn that thing off.  It's better to play in a lower resolution all the time than to bounce around.

Don't play untill your hardware can support the recommended.

Twitch shooters are different. People do it in CSGO as well to get rid of all fancy textures and all shadows so that they are more easily able to see the enemies. When winning or losing depends on milliseconds of differences in reaction times, even the fps you're rolling counts. But WoT isn't anything like it, in WoT you either know where the enemy is way beforehand or you get surprised and lose the fight before it even started. It's a more tactical, less reactive battle field where you don't die completely just because of one bad peak (usually).
