HowTo / Notes

Vertical Synchronization

if you experience slowdown in moving speed of your character, try to disable VSync in your X drivers

if your picture is choppy some times, try to toggle it on.

(way to do so is different for all drivers)

Try disabling strict draw ordering. Worked like a charm for me.
