Slowdown with certain backgrounds and autoscrolling screens

As of version 2.0 I get noticeable slowdown on any screen where the background is a zigzag pattern (both horizontal and vertical). I also have slowdown on any autoscrolling segments. I had no slowdown at all prior to the update.

I haven't tooled around with any resolution options to try to fix it so I might try that now, any other suggestions? Kinda weird that it only slows down with certain background patterns.

PC version, by the way.

EDIT: Oh also, while I'm here, I have a suggestion. There ought to be a button that manually kills you/returns you to last checkpoint. I've gotten permanently stuck in a couple of the new levels and had to exit out and reload my progress to continue.


You can turn off scrolling backgrounds in the accessibility options.

A new patch is coming with improved performance. :)


I'm aware that backgrounds can be turned off, but I'd rather not have to do that when my computer was perfectly able to handle them prior to the update.

It seems that playing in Windowed x1 mode eliminates the slowdown (I had always been playing on Windowed x2 before), but every other display option experiences slowdown to varying degrees, usually worse than Windowed x2 did. Guess I'll just have to wait until the performance update.
