Issues unresolved

Shader compilation stutter

The game compiles shader at startup but still suffers from severe shader compilation related stutters during gameplay, this occurs every time a new effect is rendered and thus every time a new shader needs to be compiled.

Stutters while traversing in the game

The game can stutter when moving around in the environment of the game. This is independent from settings or hardware.
