very minor, almost unnoticable lag
i've noticed the past few times that i've played that i get this very minor stutter sometimes and while it isn't always game-changing, although it can be, it is really irritating and i always notice it

it isn't a problem with my hardware so i'm wondering if maybe it was an update issue and somebody else is experiencing the same thing

Yes, it stutters some. Most people wouldn't notice and it doesn't really hurt gameplay but it's annoying.

I'm looking into eliminating this stutter that some people experience in the next update.

Ive been getting it rather bad lately as well. Was totally fine until two days ago. Seemed to start when a ghost came, hasn't been the same since. No other games having any problems. AMD Radeon 7700, win 7

Hi. Any news on this?.
@hullandy: have you been able to reproduce the stutter?

I started to notice this once I upgraded (a few days ago) from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7 64 bits. Also upgraded my processor, motherboard and ram. This is the only game I've noticed anything wrong since the upgrade.

I can't help but to notice it, it's quite distracting to me. I decided to stop playing until I can figure out how to solve this. Going to try with different driver versions.

My system:
· Windows 7 64 bits
· Intel i5-3470 (3.20GHz)
· 16 GB of RAM (@1333Mhz)
· Radeon HD 6870
· Graphics driver: Catalyst 13.12
· Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V
· Display Resolution: 1440x900 (16:10)

@hullandy: if you need any help tracking this down, please let me know.

For me, it's happening every 10 to 12 seconds or so. I wouldn't say it's unnoticeable. The faster you are going when it happens, the more you notice it.

I've got the problem too, it just arose after one of the patches a few weeks back, made it really hard to play. With this latest patch it's manageable, but still noticeable. Can't figure out what it is, my PC can run the game perfectly

The only way I have been able to eliminate the stutters is to switch to the Intel integrated graphics card. If I use my AMD Radeon, I always get the stutters.

The problem is, the integrated graphics can't handle the game at some points, so it slows down considerably.

What I plan to do next is to switch to Nvidea.
