Not sure if anyone else here is having similar issues with this game, or any other game, and might be able to recomment a fix, but here goes.
i7 930 OC to 3.7 GHz
12.0 GB Ram
Can run the game with eyefinity, res at 5760 by 1080 on Ultra and get around 30 - 40 FPS, except I get around 5 fps during cutscenes.
reduced settings to absolute lowest and gameplay goes well over 100 fps, but cutscenes still will not exceed 5 fps...choppy as hell and unwatchable.
Now, in the interest of testing, switched from DX11 to DX9. Under DX9, cutscenes work fine, regardless of GFX settings. Max settings, np, awesome FPS.
So, if would seem, that DX11 is the issue. TBH. i do not remember if I had similar problems with AoC, cuz i didn't play it much anymore once DX11 was supported. A lot of other forums for similar issues on other games seem to revolve around the use of Depth of Field, however, tehre is no direct means to disable this in TSW.
There is a thread for this on TSW official forums, but they have disabled new registration, so i cannot post?! Kinda shifty....
So, anyone have experience with this type of issue? know a work-around that would allow DX11 and its adv setttings? etc? Thanks in advance for your time and expereince.
