I've got about 500 hours in the game and all of a sudden I'm getting these problems. First of all after I make my first turn the game instantly becomes choppy, with lagging inputs and stuttering graphics. Everything freezes completely for a few seconds and then kicks back into action. I was able to play for about an hour before I entered combat. At the loading screen after winning the battle the game freezes completely and if i make any inputs it crashes to desktop. This happens every single time i play.
to reproduce: simply play a turn and win a battle.
Attempted solutions: clean reinstall of graphic drivers, verified integrity of game cache (twice), deleted replays
I'm really hoping to get this fixed before the new DLC drops. I have a ton of hours in this game and I hope to put in a lot more.
