    Framerate: 5~15 FPS
    Comment: no counter, unplayable after you load into the world due to low FPS (5-15 frames). Was running from a hard drive, this could affect the performance.

    Comment: This only applies to Solo Mode, I haven't tested online performance. The game can run at its highest settings and highest resolution but is unplayable (about 5-15 FPS and probably best for just for taking photos)
