I recently purchased this game and am very impressed, but am about to put playing it on hold until it is officially released and more bugs are fixed.
I can't play the game for more than 5 minutes without the framerate going from smooth as can be to randomly dropping to unplayable levels. I have gotten a black screen more than 30 times so far. Sometimes when I save and load my character appears inside a block and soon after dies.
Is there anything I can do to improve the experience until these problems are fixed? I hope so as I love this game apart from the bugs! I cannot be the only person out of the millions of people who have this game who want to play it but cannot due to lag and crashes.
my specs are
Windows 7 64-bit 4 GB RAM Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53 GHz NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M 256 MB
EDIT: I have tried setting the graphics down lower and the draw distance to shorter, and it helps a bit, but I still have lots of problems with lag and crashing.
