I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone and Order and Chaos Online plays very well, but when I play it on my Nexus 7 Tablet it lags and the draw distance is horrible. Does anyone know why this is and is there a fix for the lag? Is there a rom and kernel combo that runs games better than rooted stock?

I bet it has something to do with tegra (;
I was warned before my purchase that Gameloft games MAY not work good with this device.. Never touched a GL game though..

Its Gameloft.

Order and Chaos worked brilliantly on my Tegra 2 Transformer with a hacked apk from a Motorola Xoom. After every update they killed the patch work. Once it got official support, it sucks.

Same on N7. Pretty sad.

I know it can play much better and if you warez it, it plays great. I've purchased the game 3 times. At this point I think I'm entitled to make it play any way I can.

At the end of the day it is just a train wreck company that doesn't code well for Tegras. Whatever they do to Tegra games is bad.

The game is playable though so just enjoy it.

Maybe 4.2.2 will increase the performance, people claim that gaming is better in the new version (:

tegra 3 is a weak SoC. something we nexus 7 owners must learn to accept

The weak spot of the Tegra 3 is the fill rate due to slow RAM. This is also why GPU over clocking barely increases FPS.

The powervrs in iOS devices on the other hand excel here.

Gameloft designs games for iOS and the GS3 only.

Therefore, the powervr in your GNex runs Gameloft games better that the Tegra 3.

The T3 is a great GPU for being over a year old. The problem is you have to work around this slow RAM, something Gameloft isn't willing to do... Unlike mad finger for example.

In the T4 Nvidia has realized its mistake and added dual channel faster RAM which is partly why the GPU performance is much better.

I think it's a tegra thing. It's much better on my note 10.1 with android 4.1 then nexus. On nexus I get ghosting terrible worse then on note.
It's Kewl game would be in it more if not for lag. And it's a shame it's great game play. And I paid the yearly subscription.
