Ok so logged in today and was taken to the tutorial for some reason, after being prompted to choose my basic display settings - as if I had just installed the game. I watched kroober being transported in, my OS forced windowed mode for a notification - which crashed my game upon trying to full screen. On loading the game back up again I entered the keep as normal but my keybinds and graphics settings had reset but my characters remain intact.
The reason why I’m not sure if this was a bug or a fix or just a weird coincidence is because even though my settings are now capped out I don’t suffer from the FPS loss that I used to since all this has happened. I can enjoy shafts of light in their full glory. But also no patches were announced and I don’t remember any downloads … ?
