Following the launch of Atelier Sophie 2, many players began reporting stuttering issues on PC. However, this likely didn’t come as a surprise for a lot of old-time fans of the series, as the previous games had similar issues in the past. Fortunately, there is a rather simple method to fix this problem.
Fixing the Stuttering Issue in Atelier Sophie 2
The best way to fix the stuttering issue in Atelier Sophie 2 is to simply plug a controller. It might sound weird, but this seems to fix the problem in about 90% cases. To make sure this method works properly, exit the game first, then plug the controller, make sure the system recognizes it and launch the game again.
What if This Doesn’t Work?
There are a few in-game settings you can change to make sure the game runs smoother. First and foremost, turn off anti-aliasing, since it doesn’t seem to work properly in this game. Second, remember to have the game running in fullscreen mode all the time. And finally, you can also turn off motion blur.
Graphic’s Driver Settings
If none of the above works, you can always try entering your graphic’s driver control setting. Here, enable Vsync, and manually choose the frame limit, depending on which one your PC can handle. The in-game frame limiting options also seem to not work properly. Lastly, set the energy consumption to maximum performance.
Terraria: How to Defeat New Daytime Empress in Terraria 1.4.4 Update
Strategy guide to defeating the Daytime Empress in the latest Terraria Update.
Even before the Terraria 1.4.4 update, defeating the Empress of Light during the day is an absolute nightmare. Especially when facing her much harder difficulty levels.
She has the potential of one-hitting you and your strategy involves stacking multiple items and buffs to dodge her attacks as well as having a high enough damage output to end the fight fast.
The latest 1.4.4 Update is a lot harder. Now, dodge potions and buffs do not affect her and the only way to survive her onslaught is to not get hit.
In this guide, we will be showing you some useful tips to remain unscathed as you challenge one of the hardest bosses to beat, the Daytime Empress of Light and get a Terra Prisma in Terraria 1.4.4
How to Defeat New Daytime Empress in Terraria 1.4.4
Like any summoned boss battles in Terraria, the first thing you should set up is your battle arena. Place wooden boards for you to land on and easily pivot as you dodge her attacks.
This will later prove very useful even if you rely on flying items since turning from left to right on the ground is a lot faster than moving in the air.
Choose your weapon and strategy carefully
If you already have the Terra Prisma then it is a great idea for you to use it. The item summons prismatic lacewing to follow and damage opponents and for us, the best strategy in facing her is to Summon minions and deal additional damage with a whip or a ranged weapon.
Buffs to use
Focus on potions that increase your speed like the swiftness potion. Mix these up with a summoning potion to increase your minion Spawn and get potions that increase your max damage output overall.
You won’t have to use any defense potions since you will be focusing on not getting hit for you to get the Terra Prisma item. Besides, you will most likely get one hit so it’s pointless to use defense potions.
Armors to use
Use armors that either increase your summon capacity or enhances summon damage. You won’t have to use high defense items since they will be rendered useless with the boss’s high damage output.
Facing the Boss
It will take some time to analyze her attack pattern. To play it safe engage her and move in an L direction. Drop down and move horizontally away from her. Be careful with her range attacks because most of these have good tracking capabilities.
Area of Effect attack pattern
When she pauses to deliver her area of attacks you might want to position yourself high. When the first laser lights flare up dodge by going down and slowly move clockwise in the map. She will Spawn 2 to 3 AOE attacks before reverting to her tracking projectiles.
To summarize, on tracking projectile attacks move down and away from the boss. For are of effects set her first attack up by heading high until the first AOE flare spawns then make your way down and move clockwise until she switches her attacks again.
It might be difficult at first but it isn’t impossible to do. All you need is some practice and proper timing to pull this off and get out on top.
