    Sorry, i overwrote the bug template .. so my pc spec etc hasnt changed, and I see this in all scenes!

    If you are looking at a name plate of anything as you run towards it, and just run (on Lana, who has speed from leather armor) the name plate focusing doesnt keep up. Its not as noticable on the video I attach but it almost is the further you were aware when you started looking at that, the worse it is - if you watch Becky's nameplate as I run past her.... as you get close its unreadable but you turn to look back and wtf and.. its fine.. its almost the like a camera auto focus isnt as you change targets eg you turn round, it does.

    I tested this and found that the name is not blurring up, it is shrinking as you get closer though. Instead of passing the NPC, try doing a head-on collision with them. you'll see that the name stays clear all the way. This can also be a mixture of FPS, the monitor/GPUs motion blur settings and peripheral vision perception coming into play.

    Thanks @Ravalox. As a major sufferer of migraines anything blurry really is an issue. I will accept your word as i know you will have looked properly into it so I accept theres likely nothing that can be done
