Issues unresolved[edit]

Battle - low frame rate on time compression[edit]

During battle, time compression causes frame rate to drop from a normal rate to below 5 FPS. Game becomes much less responsive.
Possible fix is to minimize detail.
The frame rate drop affects the UI. To cancel time compression, click and hold the "-" button for a few frames.
