Re: Slowness issues.
I am having the same issues as you. I have a thread on here as well. My PC is more than capable of running this game yet no matter what settings I use, even the lowest ones, the game is very choppy in the open areas.
I totally understand that the open areas (the dock) are more taxing on system but than oher areas but we should be able to see a difference in performance when the settings are changed.
Hopefully this will be fixed soon because this renders the game unplayable.
