    When I load up the game ( TSW 2) on my Xbox one x and am in the main menu, the fan is revving at (what I think is) maximum speed.
    This has never happened before in any other game, especially not in a menu and to this degree.
    I actually didn't know, the console was able to get this loud.
    And I do clean the console regularly.

    Yeah, you should hear the difference on Series X between the ingame, whisper quiet, virtually inaudible sound level, and the "clear the runway for takeoff" degree of fan speed in the menus.

    Uncapped framerates in menus. Not even once. :P

    I and many others seem to have the same problem on PS4. I don't recall DTG ever commenting on it but it needs fixing. I'm worried my console is about to self destruct every time I go into the menu. It can't be doing it any good.

    A copy of my latest reply in my xbox discussion thread:

    I now took my Xbox apart and put some new, good thermal paste on the apu.
    Now the fan is quieter but when the game is set to 4K it still gets loud in the menu. But not as much as before.

    Are we still looking for workarounds for faults that need to be fixed in the game?
    I can't think of anything we might do to limit the framerates ...

    I don't think it could be a workaround, as not many people would/should take their consoles apart.
