Hello everyone! Just registered to as this question.
I have completed PoE2 as it came out. Then left it alone. Now decided to play it again with DLC this time.
Unfortunately the game is completely unplayable when I have more than 2 NPCs on screen. If I scroll to the edge of the map where "the fog of war" is then it runs smooth. As soon as I scroll towards my character - fps drops to zero even on lowest settings and resolution. I have tried the -forced3d11 fix but it didnt work. Running as admin also does nothing.
I have done benchmark tests, monitored activity with MSI afterburner and nothing points to any hardware issues. Tried removing GeForce experience but nothing helps. As soon as I enter Port Maje the game almost freezes at 2 fps.
I am running an i7, GTX980, 32GB RAM.
Please help. I am sorry if there is a thread about this but I haven't found it.
