FPS drop to 14 fps in buy/build mode

★★★★ Novice

I've noticed that I usually play on around 60fps solid, but recently when I go into the build/buy mode, i drop down to around 14 fps with it being super stuttery. I'm currently playing in the new StrangerVille world, not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Try to disconnect the Internet completely when you play and check if FPS will drop after this. Recently there was an error reported related to the Internet connection

If it will not work could you post your Computer's DxDiag?

Hi;

 

See if opening the Game Options menu and closing it helps; I've been noticing this issue happening as of late after prolonged periods of game play. Close/Open of the Game Options menu seemed to temporarily fix the problem. I ended up having to reload the game to get it to stop, but it comes back after a few hours of gameplay.

Wow, that was the only thing I've been able to find on this issue that helped, thanks!
