Ahh, so it's just a software bug then? Nothing I can do about it? Sorta like Neo in the Matrix? Just reset the game and hope it doesn't show up again?
This game's already well known to be optimized like utter shit... Act 3 especially, and the "new" stuff in Act 3 most notably Lagimus/Desyncimus are the worst offenders. Doesn't help it uses 1 core.
I have a pretty decent rig... I play The Witcher 2 on basically max, with a very mild fan curve my GPU rarely breaks 60c under decent load, and my CPU rarely breaks 40c under load. Never dropping below 60fps..
On this game with the absolute bare minimum settings... On Dominus I'll spike over 75c(using less than 40% GPU load, fyi, I use more GPU on fucking LoL) and my CPU will hit 50c(a comparison, prime95 generally tops me out at 55c after a few hours). On Dominus I'll hit 40FPS and lag and of course desync. I basically had to make another Fan Curve profile just for this unoptimized PoS. It's the only game I play, and I play a fucking ton of games, that has given me any sort of "heat" issues with my GPU/CPU.
I basically scrapped my Trapper... Lightning/Fire Traps in this game attempt to teach my 670FTW how to fry eggs, especially in certain zones(i.e. most of Act3+).
There's not much you can do really... Like desync this is another thing that's probably gonna suck and continue to suck forever.
