Yeah, I was afraid of that. This issue really feels like something I just have to deal with if I want to play either game. It's a shame. The only thing I haven't tried is go through the config files and see if I could find a setting to turn off. The thing is, there is no config file. It's all in the windows registry (In my case, it's found here; "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Obsidian Entertainment\Pillars of Eternity") and I don't feel comfortable changing anything in the registry unless I need to. Thank you both, but It looks like we're just stuck with this issue.
Hopefully, people are still visiting the Pillars 1 forum. I really need some help. I am trying to replay Pillars of Eternity 1 while I wait for the bugs in 2 to be ironed out and I am suffering from periodic stutters every 30 seconds or so. The framerate's almost locked at 60 everywhere but it still stutters. It's quite annoying. Doesn't matter where I am, it still stutters. This and Pillars 2 are the only games I am having issues with on my system. Everything else runs fine. My system specs: OS: Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) CPU: i7 3770K (overclocked or not, it makes no difference) GP
