happen the same with me. i put all settings low performance and fps drop in specific places. so i make a test, i convert all dds files to 128x128 for better performance(unlucky). fps drop always for me and all players but people with good computer dont cry about..
My texture memory usage with low performance:
Before convert - 81.6mb
After convert - 23.0mb
problem is not textures, is the new system i guess.
Yup, that would be useful. But if the layout files are comprehensible, maybe "we" could hack up an external layout editor with that kind of capability. I admit I haven't checked the wiki so maybe something already exists. It's also possible that Scawen wouldn't want such a thing to exist?
