As always, love the game, and thanks for your great work.
History: I have 150+ hours on the game without a problem "until" this latest patch. I've played through the entire game 3x times, but this time, with the Spring Patch I started to experience perforfamance issues.
When do the problems begin? The problem began AFTER I returned from the Dark Castle (Mardracht quest) via the Major Gate. I noticed when my frame-rate dropped gradually, but I thought it was only because I have been playing for 8+ hours and maybe I had a virtual memory leak. I closed everything, rebooted and then I got the dreaded corrupted file issue. On Steam I VERIFIED the Integrity f the Game Files, but I still had errors. I went back to a prior save (Not an Auto Save) and I managed to make the game work. However, the performance issue (really slow on movement, resting, etc.) hit again! I rebooted and loaded a graphic heavy game as a performance benchmark and I had 120 FPS. I go back into Solasta and the entire game drops to a crawl.
Current Status: My game auto-corrupts and I have to find a prior save, in the middle of an act (not a transition point, and not an Auto Save) to start the game. Meanwhile, I am stuck in Copperan with really not ability to progress, since the game is not playable at 5 FPS (so slow).
Any insight or help would be appreciated. I'll email a File Save in a separate email, but ping me here if there is an easy fix I am overlooking.
