Thank you for your report - we’ll check it out.

I have an update to the problem. Now whenever i start the game, my entire pc freezes regardless. even putting everything on lowest settings. I don’t know how you’re optimising the game, but it seems to be going backwards. The game ran better during the beta. I’ll try going to an earlier version of my drivers to see if it fixes it,
