Shadow shader has too low performance on HD4850 (recommended spec.). Shadows uses 1/3 of GPU power. For example: frame rate drops from 30 to 20fps after switching shadow on.
Anyway on recomended PC specification this game has average 15-20fps.

You forgot mention this patch requires reinstallation.

Still doesn't launch. I see you guys know what you're doing.

You need to remove game folder manually.

That was the first thing I did.

I'm still experiencing performance problems even with this update, already uninstalled the game and installed it again and still the same thing

I can play this game on Windows 8.1 64bit, FX-8150/8GBRAM, ATI HD4850/1GB but performance is low. Do I need to change (for example) to new R7 260 or R7 260X for 25-30fps?

Sigh day 22 still cant play. Game opens fine but just stays at a blue white screen and freezes.

I have no problem and no need to reinstall the game. Thank you for the patch
