Issue: need FPS counter

Had to disable DXVK so no built in FPS counter. Steam FPS counter doesn't shows up either, so can't really tell how my game performs. But it playable on base 14" with crossover

    Comment: GPTK using DX11. Important to note that you can't start a new game because it doesn't allow you to write your name in Start Game menu so you need to find a fresh save file. An alternate way, is to use a virtual machine just to skip this part. Except that, the game play perfectly with everything at high.
