Any GTX 680 or i7 3770 owners that also have ARES?
EDIT: Solution found. If your computer uses hardware that greatly exceeds the system requirements of a particular 2D game, and that game is running with both of the following symptoms, please point the developer of that game to this thread and see if they can implement a similar fix:
- Frame rate is at sustained, non-fluctuating 42 FPS, including while viewing logos and at the main menu (for 60 Hz monitor - might be faster, but similarly crippled, for displays with a higher native refresh rate).
- One or more CPU cores is locked at 100% load while the game is in focus (open the task manager and check the performance tab to verify).
