Fix: Myth of Empires Stuttering, FPS Drop, and Force Closes

Myth of Empires is a new large-scale multiplayer sandbox video game that has been developed by Angela Game and published by Antiidelay in November 2021. Initially, it was in the Early Access stage where players can enjoy about 70% of the game by carrying forward gameplay data to the full game.

Luckily, we’ve provided a couple of possible workarounds that should help you out.
