There is no bug forum, or tech support forums, so putting this here. The game may be running at different settings than what it shows. For example, I had VSYNC enabled, but I was getting tearing. So I had to disable, apply, re-enable, apply, and it finally took the setting.

Also, the game was running really slow. 12-30 FPS. And everything was set to low (or so I thought). So I went in, set everything to high, apply, set it to low again, apply and BOOM!! 40-60 FPS. So it seems the settings may be different from what it shows. If you have low FPS, try that. Set it all to high, apply, then back down to low, apply, and see what happens.

Thanks,

Rax.

Thanks for confirming this.. I've seen several other posts from people saying the same thing. Hopefully reapplying settings changes several times will help with my random lag/fps drops.

Kinda amazed a bug like this has made it to launch.

I tried to do this - e.g. setting graphics to low, restarting, setting it to high, restarting...and no cigar. Still low quality textures for me.

After you put everything to low, did you go into shadows and make sure that setting was 'OFF' and not just 'LOW'? Try that if you didn't.
Relax, it's just a game.

Just to make sure, I retraced those steps, making sure shadows were "off". Still no joy.

Or maybe there is an improvement - but if it's there, it's minimal; I can't see it.
