@Chris and of course others. You are recognised as rock stars in your profession, so why do I stutter around mostly every town and on the Overworld map all the time? The game is clearly getting stronger and stronger to any right minded person, but there is an aggressive anti-game mob who look for every opportunity to criticise. I vehemently defend the game as I love it, but it drives me nuts that it lags and stutters like something I played on my old modem in 2005 in towns and on the o.w. map. Please see what you can do about this urgently before doing anything else. Any new player, especially non tech ones will simply assume a game that stutters like this is crap. Sorry to be blunt.
