Game running slow, something to do with USB?
This game runs at about 20 FPS for me, way slower than intended. I've read through many threads on here, the few fixes that were mentioned did not work for me.
One person mentioned plugging in his USB keyboard made the game slow, and he could properly play with a controller.
I plugged my controller in and the game ran at 40 fps, twice the speed as usual but still a little too slow. With Fraps open, I unplugged my USB mouse and the game jumped up to 50 FPS, then my USB keyboard and it jumped up to the full 60 FPS.
Really strange, but I won't be able to play with my controller because the analog sticks aren't working.
I'm using a Logitech G500 mouse and a G15 keyboard, maybe it has something to do with the drivers
Edit: I tried turning off my Logitech drivers, it didn't do anything for my framerate. Removing any other USB device doesn't seem to change my FPS.

I'd appreciate if someone with a slow game could test to see if this fixes their problem too.
I hope the devs read this forum often because this could help them a lot

I couldn't see a noticeable speed boost in mine, but it is horrifically slow compared to the videos I've seen... not slow frame-rate but just generally very slow.

I'm going to post my strange fix, I'm able to run at 55-60 FPS with my keyboard and mouse.
I don't think this has anything to do with keyboard/mouse drivers, but I disabled them anyway (not the windows ones, logitech)
I plugged my xbox control into the front of my PC and the framerate jumped to 40-50, nothing new, but it stayed at that framerate even when I unplugged it so that was pretty cool. Plugging my mouse and keyboard into the front didn't seem change much, so I did what I read from the devs: turn off xbox control support in the options menu and restart the computer. It was already off, but I decided to try it anyway.
I restarted and the game ran at the usual 25 FPS until I plugged the xbox control in and then unplugged it. Now it's running at 55-60 FPS, I have no idea how this works for me. A lot of other fixes I've read about haven't. Hopefully it helps someone else too
