One thing I did encounter quite often in this game is that if I'm on a map/scene with a lot of particle effects (like fog, rain, biawac in the beginning, ...), the framerate drops tremendously. On native resolution (1920x1080) and AA off I run this game around 45-50 fps, but everytime the weather goes to rain for example I can be lucky if my fps stay above 30 fps. The same applies for scenes like the biawac in the beginning and every other "flashy" scene only that it goes down to like 19 fps and thats quite annoying in my opinion. I don't know the exact reason for that, but I guess it has to do with the particles in the game and how they affect my CPU. I'm curious if I'm the only one with this problem and I also wanna ask, if an option to turn down particle effect may solve it?
The issue occurs in the Map screen. When the minimap is opened while your group is moving, and they have equipped weapons that have particles effects on them (fire, cold, corroded etc.), the particles effect will remain displayed on the minimap until closed/reopened. Steps: 1. Equip/Enchant weapon with bonus DMG to fire/cold/shock. etc so the weapons emit particle effects. 2. Go on any map/dungeon and make your group to move. 3. While the group is moving press "M" to open the minimap. 4. Notice that the particle effects from the weapons will remain displayed on the minimap. Note that the issue occurs from the other "world" particles (like fire and torches etc.) as well, but it is less noticeable as they are static.
