Bug Patch #2

Hey all,

This week we've got another small Friday update (build #1639667) with a few changes.

Bug Fixes and Improvements
  • Added an option to toggle VSync from the options menu (this might help the performance/stuttering issues some of you have still been reporting).
  • Fixed a bug with mouse acceleration introduced from Bug Patch #1
  • Fixed a bug when using Alt+Enter (Cmd+F on Mac) to enter full screen mode where the UI/HUD would disappear.
  • Updated our Steamworks SDK (this should be a transparent change, but if you see any issues with achievements or leaderboards, let us know).

Set Target Frame Rate
We've also added an in-game console command to help those with performance issues. You can set the target frame rate (from 30-120). For example, if your machine is less powerful it might be a better experience to clamp the frame rate to 30.
  1. Open Poi and hit the tilde (~) key (left of the 1 key).
  2. Type: "targetfps [num]" (no quotes and replace [num] with the desired fps). For example: targetfps 30
  3. Hit (~) again to close the console.

You can also use the "fps" console command to display the frame rate in the lower left corner of the screen to verify.

We're continuing to work on bugs, performance and other things so please keep the feedback coming.

Happy weekend!
