Mapper being super slow with clicking rooms
 
Here is a video of what I mean. It seems to only happen in certain zones. This is game-breaking annoying. I have a Ryzen 3900X so its definitely not my PC. Any Ideas? At a loss here. :(

Looks more like a connection issue with the game not responding until a bunch of commands are queued up.
Also, the mouse cursor never moves, so it's hard to believe that you are even trying to click a room.

It's not a connection issue, and it took the video after clicking a room. Here, I will make a new video.

It happens 100% of the time in big zones like that. Clicking around in smaller maps works just fine.

I get those kind of slowdowns if the map is "zoomed out" . Try zooming in so you only see like a few rooms and see if that helps. I have no idea why it does that on my large map zones

I've also pointed this out multiple times with no real solution. I am not sure if its memory usage or what is causing it but there is a bit of a workaround.

1.) Ensure your map is zoomed in so that you only see a small grid of rooms at a time. This seems to help when speedwalking.

Alternatively you can

2.) Split up you map into smaller zones. This is essentially the same as 1 without zooming in.

This is probably not what you want to hear but I hope you find a solution to this.

It might be a hardware issue, I had experienced this on my previous computer, but I've gotten a new one a couple days ago and the freezes stopped.
And yes, it happened when the map was zoomed out, so I guess it may be linked to an insufficient RAM, or something like that.
