Massive framerate drop after opening the map for the first time.

Hey there!

I'm running Gearend on a Windows 64-bit PC with a AMD FX 6300 and a GTX 750, and I noticed that after opening the map, the game halves it's framerate until I either die, or I leave an area entirely.

It's pretty much making the game unplayable, as it's impossible to really move anywhere with speed or precision after you open the map.

Other than that and the god ray shader appearing super weird, everything else works fine.

Can't wait to play more of the game! :)

That's strange - haven't seen that behavior before. Can you press F1 when you open the map to open the profiler and see where the CPU is going?

So when I open the map, gpu wait spikes and hovers around 30%, only dropping to 20% after I close the menu. However, before I open the map for the first time gpu wait is at 0%, so I figured this might be the culprit. I hope this helps! :/

Yo, I'm super late to responding to this, but I finally got around to figuring out what might've been the issue - I'll be pushing an update tonight that (hopefully) will resolve the problem. Thanks for the report!

Hey, so I pushed that update - hopefully it solved the issue. Thanks for posting, again!
