Creating Manual 18W TDP
Open up Armoury Crate, click Settings and then click Operating Mode.
Click Manual and then select a manual mode in the drop down menu to edit. Change all three settings under CPU to this.
Next you want to adjust the fan curves for Fan 1 and 2 to look like mine or to your preference.
You can save your settings by clicking the check mark and rename your settings by clicking the 3 dots next to the checkmark.
Applying 18w mode to the Game
Go to Game Library in Armoury Crate, highlight the game you want to edit and press X on your controller. Click Configuration, then click Operating Mode DC and select the custom operating mode you just created.
The custom mode will be automatically applied the next time you launch the game.
Create A 900p Resolution
Using the 900p resolution gives you a performance boost without having to drop all the way down to 720p. You can learn how to create the custom resolution here.
For No Man’s Sky I had to change the resolution of my desktop to 1600×900 too for it to display in game.
No Mans Sky runs great on the ROG Ally. Using the custom 900p resolution locked at 18w for extra battery got me an average of above 60fps with some minor drops into the 50’s at certain locations or a storm.
