Crashed (Resolved), FPS drop?

As of a few minutes ago, after the latest patch, I now can't launch the game, instead getting a pop-up claiming "Unable to initialize 3D output. Please verify that you have installed DirectX 9 and an updated video driver.", along with a link to support. Seeing as the game has worked fine up until now, I've little reason to believe it's a problem on my end, unless the patch somehow ninja-removed those things it mentioned.

Edit : The game seems to run normally again, but now my FPS has dropped from the 60 range to mid 20's...

  • Ok, so you're able to get into the game now? Checking to be sure. There's a thread for FPS questions/issues, but I will want to edit the subject line if the crash is resolved.

    No more crashes or errors so far. However, the FPS drop remains there, and even turning my settings to best performance only manages to get me up to around 50-55, when before I could handle medium settings at roughly 60.

  • Thanks for that update.
