I tried that, I set it to the very lowest vis limit, with absolutely no change in performance, not even slight improvement. This is really frustrating (thanks for your suggestions though). It just seems very typical of Cornered Rat to release a bad patch.
Massive drop in FPS, in addition to huge lag spikes that come regularly. Game is basically unplayable now. I'm down to about 3-4 FPS on lowest graphic settings (and I'm running native resolution). Here are my stats: 2GHz Intel Core Duo 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM ATI RADEON X1600 128MB VRAM PCI Express Mac OS 10.4.9 Any help here?
