You got it frog dood!!!! renaming the .dll file completely solved my issue. now everything is running at 60fps constant, w/ vsync forced on my system. all town overlay menus are also not dropping my fps to nearly unplayable levels!!! so i can confirm this works on main screens, town screens, cloth map. considering i was at the start of the game pulling 43fps and opening up town screen goin down to about 25fps, right at the very start and now its completely fixed, well i gotta say im very happy. so here is my setup now:
beginning of game, 1920X1080, 4x AA, outlines enabled, particles and most importantly ......PEEPS in the towns! --------> 60fps! good work, its much appreciated!
who knows how they will be late game, but thats late game and is acceptable to me.....clearly this made a huge difference
