For anyone who hasnt read the green text - your OL client should have 'New Selection' in the troubleshoot tab SELECTED.(It is actually supposed to be selected by default, but mine wasnt) Will help greatly with lag/FPS issues on big maps like MM/RI etc.

NewSelection gets rid of a lot of processing as the scene is rendered and determines what the mouse is on.

When new selection is off, the MouseLimit variable on the main Controls tab suddenly affects lag & how responsive the mouse is

NewSelection might have you click on something that's in the way you can't really see, but VERY rare.

After realising this, i gained an extra 100+ FPS in big maps, MM being the best example

Test it before/after, and go as you will, just a heads up!

This does help more on graphically inclined computers, then there is my computer. New selection made little-to-no difference. Sadly this can't help bad computers more :/
