  • @Reithur Noice ;)



  • FPS decreased from 40 to 1-3 in menu. Some optmization problem? After few restarts my problem still exist. Its unplayable.



  • Try checking your video settings etc, you do know it all goes back to epic settings thus many overlook that.



  • @Wilt I checked it before I wrote it here. Everything on low and resolution scalling 50.

    Tabbeed out to windows and im still gettin this massive lags. The game does not want to turn off, need to ctrl+alt+delete it.



  • It might be a setting changed in video settings, as I a week ago was altering things like resol scale and gore
    I forget what others but I noted game wouldn’t exit except by task manager like you, My post is still about.
    After resetting to default then setting up medium settings it worked fine ever since tbh. Best of luck if it helps.



  • @Wilt you keep warning people that it goes back to epic settings, which actually means nothing cause no matter what its set to the FPS stays exactly the same lol. Havent tried this patch yet, hopefully its better. Game runs 120 fps at most times regardless of settings but on some maps it will dip below 75 which is my refresh rate, and turning it to low settings makes literally zero difference. Also, i have a gtx 770 (its new, secondhand and unused but i know its good because ive had it for a year with no probs) and a 4.4ghz i5 3570k so…

    BTW, i am ecstatic to see these stamina changes. Stamina got lost toooooo quickly last patch. Especially making wall jumps have no stamina cost, thats amazing and the way it outta be, gonna be so much fun to play w/ these
