During the game my FPS is set at 85 (refresh rate of monitor) and runs fine smooth with no drop at all. However, when I look at something like a Phase gate it drops to 42.5 (Exactly half the fps) and stays there untill it leaves the screen.
It's not just my gfx card not being upto the job because even with 8 Pgs or a battle raging behind it it stays at 42.5 and is fine at 85 no matter what happens otherwise. However as soon as the pg leaves the screen it goes back up to 85. So is there some kind of console command about the particles that causes this to happen and does it happen to anyone else?
