So even though my drivers are up to date as far as my computer is concerned the client says they aren't. Not much I can do about that and while that doesn't appear to be the issue (or at least hadn't been) I feel it's worth noting because someone would ask if they were without this clarification. The issue is thus: prior to the Halloween update the game ran fine. It would only lag a bit if I had a browser open with multiple tabs running in the background and even then that was usually not a big deal.

The absolute moment the Halloween event hit I found myself unable to run the game regularly, and only when I put it in compatibility mode did it function at all, despite as a very, very low framerate. It's seriously laggy. Oddly enough it makes YouTube tabs lag visually (though the audio plays fine in the background) even though I wouldn't expect the client and browser to have anything to do with one another. I've had other people saying they're having similar issues where they can't log into the client unless in compatibility mode so I'm just wondering what exactly is going on.

Anyone else having this issue? Are the devs aware? Does anyone have a way to fix this because while the game isn't unplayable (I'm sure combat would be a bigger issue but I'm just souping for the event anyway) it is highly irritating to have everything else lagging because I'm having to run the client in compatibility mode when there was no such issue before the event update.

Well, that's bizarre, it wouldn't fully load outside of compatibility this morning but now it seems to be fine. Ok, well, problem solved, I guess. Kinda weird that it wouldn't do anything till now but, hey, not gonna complain if it's working right.

I can run the client in normal mode but every so often the screen freezes yet the game itself still is running like mouse cursor and music change when I teleport somewhere else yet I still have to close the client out and reload it to get it back to normal. It was running just fine before the Halloween update. I had the same client issue too where i could only load in compatibility mode. Anyone else's client freezing like this?

Edit: client doesnt freeze in compatibility mode but I've never had it freeze before in normal mode, so it's just as if I can't play on normal mode still since I'm having to close the client every 5 or so mins.
