  • Pipeline state object cache optimizations to reduce hitches during level transitions.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause full Unreal garbage collect unnecessarily, leading to minor visual hitches.
  • Fixed a visual corruption bug that would rarely affect NVIDIA cards when changing resolutions and VRAM became over committed.

  • Fixed lack of mouse input when using lowest mouse sensitivity and fully zoomed in with sniper rifle and moving the mouse very small amounts.
