Well, unfortunately the game still runs terribly when I start a new game. After a clean install with no PoE settings left behind, I used your save file after another install and started a new game and I was still dropping 20 plus frames on the starter beach ever 3-5 seconds.
I am curious if you are importing a save file or not in your new games? I do every single time and I am wondering if that has anything to do with this already terribly coded game running into more issues then it is worth.
I believe there is no fix for my issue without dev intervention and am going to try and seek a refund on Fig due to this issue going unresolved for a year.
Thanks for trying to help Nehm hopefully one day fellow watchers get to play this game with zero issues.
