# 1 UI killing my frame rate.
02-26-2012, 07:33 PM
Turning off the UI makes my frame rate jump considerably.

Why is the UI, arguably just a 2D overlay, causing such a performance penalty?

I'm not exactly rolling about in an incredibly up to date computer, but I think that this could be an area for optimisation.

For completeness, my specs. Financial issues are the reason why this build is quite old.
