Hello everyone! I recently started having a rather annoying issue when traveling in the game. Basically the game starts stuttering like crazy sometimes when I travel. It can be both map travel or just exiting a house, anywhere where there's a loading screen basically. Also the same problem is present to a lesser degree in the level-up menu. Lowering the graphics quality does absolutely nothing, there is NO improvement, but all audio works just fine which I find to be quite odd. Reloading seems to fix it for a while every time, even if I save during the stuttering and reload that, but it's very annoying since not only does it disrupt the gameplay but it's also quite slow since the game becomes quite unresponsive.
I've tried a couple of things already but none of them have worked;
1. Repairing and re-installing the game, as an administrator.
2. Simply running the game as an administrator.
3. Re-installing the June 2010DirectX runtime package (recommended by gog support).
4. Restoring my 3D settings to default via the nVidia control panel.
5. And as I pointed out tweaking the graphics settings, eg. setting everything to the lowest and disabling v-sync etc.
Nothing has worked so far. I'm starting to worry that the fault is in my PC, but it doesn't happen in any other game so I really am at a loss. Any and all help is appreciated!
NOTE: As I was attaching files I noticed that all my saves for the affected character (only have two and haven't tried the other one) are over 4000KB big, whereas for the other character the biggest one is 222KB and all other are less than 200KB. So something definitely appears to be wrong. Managed to upload the DxDiag and the output log though so hopefully that'll be enough.
UPDATE: So I believe it was indeed my PC that was ****ed. I ended up reinstalling windows altogether and lo-and-behold; the problem is gone. I dunno how to mark this as solved though
