Happy Potato Mode

Happy New Year my dear fellow Hunters :D

The much anticipated "potato friendly" mode is here. If you have a laptop or an old PC that was having trouble running Hunternet even on the old low settings be sure to check out this build. The new potato mode preset and settings should allow almost anyone to reach a playable frame rate. If potato mode does not solve your frame rate woes please let me know.

Stay frosty,
Fernando Z
