I've given this a fair shot, I'll say that up front. Just went for a run to test various settings for making the client run better, using all the tricks suggested. All my drivers are up to date. Nothing seems to make any impact at all, gather that means my system isn't an issue. About every 3-12 tiles I stop for about a quarter second. Had a guy running on foot going easily faster than me. Everything else about the client I've accepted, reported or dealt with in various ways. Using that v-scale trick I've even gotten used to the default zoom and pixelation. Standing still, or walking on foot, can't really fault it considering it's a beta version. But if I want to run or ride, I'm bogged down. I keep hearing "it's beta, it isn't optimised". But will there be some point before release when an optimisation pass is done? I don't know how these things are done but I would like some assurance things will actually be playable for me. I've adopted the client for all but speed-critical stuff and I really don't want to go back to the legacy client. Anyone else experiencing this sort of trouble?
