MASSIVE frame drops with lightning effects





Every time there's a lightning effect onscreen, I get incredible amounts of slowdown temporarily until the effect is off the screen. We're talking about 5 fps for the duration. This only happens with "palpatine lightning" like the chanter cone invocation or the adra beetle attack. Doesn't happen with "bolt from the blue" lightning like.. Returning Storm, I think it's called?


Anyway, I'm running an Nvidia GTX 760 and the game runs smooth as butter otherwise. Just grinds to a halt when lightning is onscreen.


I'm not certain, but it may be related to pausing while the FX is on screen. If you're looking to reproduce, try inducing one of those attacks and then pausing in the middle of it. Slowdown occurs upon unpause.
