Lagging issue (Slow walking speed, slow dialogue speed)
This issue has prevented me from completing this game. The improved graphics from this game, although is very good (good job on that!!), has made this game somewhat unplayable for me. It has been one of my "things to look out for" when playing RPG games like Aveyond.
Sure, it might be that some people's systems are quite old and can't handle this improved game, but it was not the case for me. I made sure to look at the system requirements first before installing this game. My computer passed with flying colors, and then some! So it's definitely not entirely those old system's fault for not carrying this game quite well.
The tediousness of some quests and more importantly, the LACK OF MAPS, doesn't help that this game's speed is seriously on the bad side.
Solutions that I've tried desperately to speed up the game:
#1. ReadyBoost. This seems to be the go to solution. It seemed to work but still significantly sluggish.
#2. Closed all running programs in the background. There are literally no programs running in the background as I play Aveyond 4. I even resorted to turning off the internet connection just to make sure that no programs are running in the background.
#3. Turned off Graphics and Audio Effects.
#4. I even resorted to using the Speedhack feature of CheatEngine 6.4 to speed the game up (which I know is heavily disapproved of here. I'm desperate, give me a break).
I purposely waited for 3 months plus to download and play this game because in my experience it's ample time for all bugs and issues like this have been ironed out. Been a solid gamer of your games since Ahriman's Prophecy, this is the only time I've encountered this problem.
To conclude, if you're an RPG gamer that one of his/her pet peeves is the slow character's walking speed, I suggest you'll just have to stay away, or like me, wait for another couple of months for this to be solved. (hopefully....)
